Hodim and Freyr?

I had the same thought. Misspellings is a tiny thing, but the author also calls them "titans" when they aren't. They are watchers left behind by the titans. Similar to the Old Gods and the elemental lords. Yogg-Saron and C'thun are Old Gods. Ragnaros and Al'akir are elemental lords, servants of the Old Gods. Sargeras and Norgannon are titans, Freya, Hodir, Mimiron, Thorim and Loken are Watchers, servants of the titans. There ARE differences. :)I think Blizzard's general idea of "what happens if Algalon isn't beaten?" is "he's gonna be beaten." Neth's post suggesting they'll retune him or lengthen the timer supports this. Also: SPOILERS(But hey, if you've come this far, you probably don't care) From what I've heard, Algalon won't die. Much like the Watchers, the fight will end at some point and Algalon will surrender or concede defeat or something. He then gives the raid "Code Alpha," which is the code that tells the titans everything is ok. On the other hand, when the hour is up he sends "Code Omega" which sends the message "start over." In case someone doesn't get the reference "Alpha and Omega" essentially means "the beginning and the end," being the first and last letters of, uh...some alphabet. The latin one? I forget right now...oops. /blush

Okay you caught me .... my internal Norse mythology info got mixed with my World of Warcraft lore info ... fixing now.As for Watchers Freya is 'a daughter' of the Titans .... making her a Titan too. Technically we're both right. I always thought Watchers were a sect of the Night Elves ... but anyway.The Titans themselves ARE Greek, they were the children of Gaia and Kronos and the younger gods - specifically Zeus - imprisoned them beneath the Earth.
