  • Ugly little monsters, pray I don't get out!
  • Your torture only adds to my rage!
  • My brothers will come for me and then you will see what true power is!
  • How long do you think this cage can hold me, fiends?!
  • I will crush you all!

Gossip text after completing N [20-30] Our Only Hope:

Listen to what I have to tell you about our enemy before we start. You don't want to be unprepared while we're out smashing Scourge in the field.
The Ymirjar battle lord, Algar the Chosen, rouses his Vargul armies at the Reliquary of Pain, northeast of this cage.
Prince Navarius is across the Dead Fields, east of here, near the great steps leading up to the second level of Zul'Drak.
Thrym's location is currently unknown, which is curious considering his size.
All must be dealt with!
Gossip I have a few more questions, Gymer.
  • Gossip Gymer, what do I need to know? I've never ridden on a giant.
When you are ready I will place you atop my head and we will march into the heart of the Scourge in Zul'Drak. You must direct me to smash and destroy our enemies!
Gossip I have a few more questions, Gymer.

While being ridden:

  • Taste Gymer's size 600!
  • Tiny creatures, I trample you!
  • I will crush you under foot!
  • I'll wipe you off my boots later!




  • When he yells "Taste Gymer's size 600!", he is referring to his shoe size. It seems like storm giants have REALLY big shoes.
  • His name comes from "Ymer" a jotun in norse mythology.
