Storm giants are a mysterious race of giants that once resided in the Storm Peaks of Northrend. They were in charge of the crystalline golems that collect crystals from the Crystalsong Forest. They can now be seen roaming the Howling Fjord in WotLK.
They are impressive, more than 30 feet tall and powerfully built. Storm giants are capable of summoning small storms. Myths say the titans created them. When the titans disappeared, the storm giants remained and claimed Ulduar. They developed crystalline golems to aid them in their research and to defend them. Over time the giants dwindled in number and grew ever more reclusive. They usually kept to themselves, hidden in their caves and tunnels below the surface, and avoided visitors. Soon only a handful remained. The giants are a dying race desperately trying to avoid their fate. They seemed to think another race would vanquish them some day, and so they hid in the Storm Peaks and Ulduar rather than girding for battle. They are too frightened to battle the Scourge, though apparently they hate it. They have since moved into the Howling Fjord.
