Thunder Bluff

Remember, all things are connected. If the beasts were gone from the land, our kind would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the Tauren. Whatever befalls Azeroth befalls all those that inhabit it.

Non-hunter gossip

I can not train you, young one.

Trueshot Lodge

I have had the pleasure of watching you grow from a young <race> into the finest hunter in all of Azeroth.

Your tales must be written so that all may know of your deeds and the history of your great weapon.

Gossip Did the tauren play a role in building this lodge?

When the elves who founded the Unseen Path left Mount Hyjal to return to the Broken Isles, the Highmountain tauren recognized the nobility of their cause and offered them friendship. It was the descendants of Huln Highmountain who led the Unseen Path to this peak.
Since the Legion's return, the Highmountain have helped restore the lodge, such as replacing two damaged watch towers with tauren structures.

Gossip Why can't I research Artifact Knowledge?

The Orders are sharing their resources, and you are no longer required to research Artifact Knowledge. Together, we have researched all possible Artifact Knowledge.

Gossip Let's continue research on my artifact.

Artifact Research Notes picked up (first time)
A weapon of legend, that's what you hold. I've uncovered some of its history, and have written it here so that all might partake in its glory.
Holt turns to Tales of the Hunt and points to it.
I'll keep inscribing anything I find here. It's worth taking a look if you have some time.

Tales of the Hunt completed
Well, that's it, <name>. After weeks of research, I think we've exhausted every scrap of history we could find about your weapon.
Thank you for dedicating so many resources to these efforts. I hope what we've learned about your weapon has proved useful.
I just added the final chapter to our book. You should definitely give it a read.
