The Hidden Origins of Two Warlords of Draenor Followers

Yulon on Tumblr found a really nice easter egg in Warlords of Draenor. The first followers — NPCs we can send out on missions for some extra loot — we can hire for our Garrisons both on the Alliance and the Horde side actually match characters from World of Wacraft's very first cinematic trailer that came out a decade ago.

Two characters, to be exact: the night elf Qiana Moonshadow (see the pic on top) and the Tauren dude Olin Umberhide. Unlike other characters in various WoW cinematics, these guys weren't really revealed, looking just like generic adventurers representing in-game classes.

Everything matches, even their armour, and even if it's just a reference and they're not the same characters, it's still pretty cool. One of those "mind = blown" moments.

    I'd say they are deliberately designed that way and they are meant to be "those guys from the first cinematic". Pretty cool find, wouldn't have noticed it myself.

    I dunno personally they dont look anything alike to me I mean Olin doesn't even have the same horns plus the follower version doesn't have shoulder pads.

    and on the night elf the hair is a different colour not to mention the armor differences again.

    the only similarities seem to be that they are both the same race as the ones in the video

    I kind of feel like the dude who made this is kinda blind

      yeah i know right?
      the armour is different for both the night elf + the tauren - more differences than similarities.
      couldnt have used a worse picture too lol, all 4 pics are pretty cropped

      this has to be a joke...
