Does anyone actually know the real life members of Lvl70ETC? I'm under the impression that it was made up of WarCraft programmers and Blizzard employees. For some reason, I always thought Samwise was the drummer. Anyone have any solid info on this? Yaki 20:11, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
- Their in-game names give a hint at their real identities. For example, Samuro is a clear reference to Samwise Didier, one of Blizzard's most prominent artists, and the source of the Pandaren. I also believe that the bassist, Mai'Kyl may represent Mike Morhaime, the president and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. Besides, it really looks like him on live performances too, so I believe it has to be him. Dunno of the rest, tho... You can compare the images with their real faces in the videos.  Besides, shouldn't we add their real identities to this article, too? --Kulsprutejojjo 13:27, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
hehe I was just playing around in ModelViewer and found the whole band (this was some weeks ago) so I checked them out and then I just came up with this: Samuro must be Warrior... and Sig Nicious should be Paladin... Mai'Kyl, Shaman... Bergrisst, ???... Thunder-Skins, Hunter!
Whattya think? Hehe I am sure you have noticed this before, I just thought it was a bit fun. --Oscararon 19:59, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

The Warcraft LoreEdit
The Warcraft Lore needs to be split from the real-world name and pages. Remember we create specific pages for ingame content and names, that is seperate from real world content. I had split it previously for this reason but it appears someone merged the two again.Baggins 22:01, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
- That is if they can be considered Lore, I mean it would be a bit silly, but hey Blizzard did worse ;). I still see them as an easter egg not officially a part yet. But that is just my take. Maybe wishfull thinking from my side hopeing that things won't get out of hand like that :P, so Maybe I'm not biased regarding that context.--Dehnus (talk) 20:00, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
- What about this?-- 00:03, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
I found this. It shows who is who in real life. Should this be added?-- 03:04, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
Lvl70ETC Plays at 8 in the BlackRock Bar Edit
Terran up the night, all right Edit
*muffled sound of raging SCV motors* This is annoying, actually. I'd like a few people who were at Blizzcon 2007 to show me proof that the song as sung there, or at least more than two attendees that have seen the performance, because it appears as a lie today.-- (talk) 08:26, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
Missing Song Edit
- Yes. It was allegedly played at Blizzcon 2005, and on the Burning Crusade collector's edition DVD.-- 02:38, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Under speculation, it says they may be involved in quests sometime in the future. In the page though, it says that they are already involved in a Children's Week quest. I am not sure since I do not have a Horde character. Rolandius (talk - contr) 12:30, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
As Horde you take the Horde Shattarath orphan to Silvermoon to see L80ETC (who are there atm) and she decides that she wants to be a rock star. interesting enough, though, the letter you get from the orphan, still says that she was adopted by Lady Lindarian to become a blood knight (so it seems that, lore wise, that is still the cannon ending for the quest chain, despite the quest-line change). --"The Scourge shall prevail!" - Scourge-Lord Morec (talk) 15:31, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Level ....? Edit
The article states that the band have renamed themselves "Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain".... has this actually been confirmed? The band's members as seen in Silvermoon City are still level 70... -StarLion (talk) 05:47, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
- I think the band and the in-game band are different. The band is named "Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain", while in-game it is named "The Tauren Chieftains". That is what the article seems to imply. Rolandius (talk - contr) 03:32, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
- "Tauren Chieftains" is what they were known as when they began during Warcraft III, then during [[World of Warcraft they changed their name to "Level 60 Elite Tauren Chieftain", during the release of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade they became "Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain", with the release of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King they became "Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain" and now with the announcement of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm they changed their name to a symbol (reference to Prince) or you can call them "TafkaL80Etc" (The artist formerly known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain). -- ( | | ) 05:55, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Automated transfer of Problem Report #17741 Edit
The following message was left by Darkohere via PR #17741 on 2009-01-21 21:37:06 UTC
- Well, yes, he played the gitar in WC3, so it can be told that he was a member. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 03:42, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
- It is never told that he is part of the band actually. But I think it is in the article because he was playing the guitar meanwhile the song was playing and, as the same song is also played by this band, people presumed that Arthas was a former member of the band. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 04:08, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
- Okay. Well, I guess that indirectly could be seen as him being part of the band. Although, they are supposed to be made up of Horde members only, and besides that, Arthas would have killed his fellow musicians and turned them into Scourge or something similiar. Rolandius (talk - contr) 04:15, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
The Artists Formerly Known As Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain Edit
I was watching a live feed of Blizzcon '09, and they announced that they would now be called TAFKAL80ETC, probably because of the announcement of Cataclysm, and the new level cap of 85.
- no. their name is an unpronouncable symble. the TAKAL80ETC is just so we can call them somthing.. also, look at The Prince Corhen talk 02:37, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
- Yeah, it's a reference to Prince, although even if they were having bouts with record companies like Prince was, they would need to change their name anyway, and also, I said they would be called TAFKAL80ETC, not that their name was such.
Unless this has already been done, I think Blizzard should make other famous NPC's, such as King Varian Wrynn, Thrall, and Sylvanas, be able to respond to emotes like if someone does /rude, they do it back, and /bow, they bow back, and /flirt, they blush or blow a kiss. If this has already been done, sorry for being a noob. Premier Solivoda 11:08, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
Level 800! Edit
In-game cinematics for the game Starcraft 2 during which its shown as an advert for their new album have revealed that they have renamed themselves to Level 800 Elite Tauren Chieftain.Kiingy (talk) 13:09, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
- Actually, I do believe that the joke here is that the level cap will be 800 in the 26th century, as StarCraft is actually set about 500 years from now (the Terrans originally came from Earth). WoWWiki-Suzaku (talk) 15:05, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
In the Mists of Pandaria expansion, the Chieftains have powerleveled to 90 (Elite) and and their drum kit logo now says L90ETC . I haven't heard any new songs yet :)
