Sons of Hodir

The Sons of Hodir are a faction of ice giants located in Storm Peaks region of Northrend. They are a war-like race that makes its home in Dun Niffelem. This faction is named for titanic watcher Hodir. Long ago Titans created seed races including giants to watch the world of Azeroth together with watchers. Titanic watcher Loken betrayed ideas of Titans under influence of Yogg-Saron. Loken tricked his brother Thorim into striking out at his frost giant allies and then settling into a ages-long stupor.

The Sons of Hodir's claim to fame in Wrath of the Lich King is that they are the providers of all the Shoulder enchants for Wrath of the Lich King (except for scribe-only enchants). The first tier is available at Honored, the second at Exalted. The Honored shoulder Enchants for the Sons of Hodir are equivalent to the Exalted enchants provided by the Aldor and Scryers from the BC, although it might be better to burn any left over Holy Dust or Arcane Runes before spending money on the Sons of Hodir ones. It is worth noting that the shoulder enchants are Bind on Account, making it so only one character per server really needs to go through the grind of being exalted.
