Orno Grimtotem

I came upon quite the sight logging in on the Horde side of Moon Guard today…

A level 10 Elite Tauren, fighting off several of the finest guards the city had on hand.  While he shows up hostile, I couldn’t attack him.  As you might guess from the title, his name is Orno Grimtotem.  Anyone who’s quested for Baine Bloodhoof knows this is the guy you fight north of Thunder Bluff.  Baine actually ends up joining the fight and sealing the victory.  In Orgrimmar, however, there’s not much in the way of victory here.  He’s glitched and sits at a single hitpoint. 

The guards just kept stunning him over and over again.  After 20 minutes of amusement, I decided I’d seen enough.  I also read up on WoWhead where this glitch has apparently been happening on rare occasion for over a year and a half and Orno here isn’t the only one getting in on the action.  Still, it’s the first time I’ve seen anything like it outside of a world event.  To be honest, for a brief moment I actually thought there was some sort of event going on.  Well, actually I thought it was Gamon until I noticed all the red in Orno’s outfit.  That and the ridiculous number of guards pounding away on him.

Tonight on COPS!

    I thought that too, before I read the WoWhead link, I was hoping it was the start of some kind of world event and those people predicting an early release for Mists were correct!

    I actually saw something like that in SW on the weekend – it was a lv 10 Forsaken being beat on by guards and players, but wasn’t dying.

    I smell a conspiracy…

      I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s still there.
