Millhouse "Jerimus" Manastorm is a wily gnome mage of questionable morals, that is ready to light someone up at the slightest provocation.[1]

He first appeared as a prisoner trapped in the Arcatraz wing of Tempest Keep. In order to acquire  [The Tempest Key], formerly required to unlock The Eye wing of Tempest Keep, players must enter Arcatraz on heroic mode, and make sure that Millhouse survives until the death of Harbinger Skyriss. He is released during the second wave of the Harbinger Skyriss encounter in the Arcatraz. His rescue was also required part of N [30H] Trial of the Naaru: Tenacity.

Later on, Manastorm appeared scheming with the Twilight's Hammer in Deepholm and yet later in the Brawler's Guild in Stormwind City and Orgrimmar as an opponent. If the player upgrades an inn to Level 2 at their Tier 2 garrison on Draenor, Manastorm will show up with a dungeon quest, unlocking him as a follower. He plays a prominent role in the Tirisgarde Campaign.

Millhouse is married to Millificent Manastorm, with whom he has a love-hate relationship. The two are fought in the Manastorms encounter in the Other Side.


Trapped in Arcatraz

Millhouse escaping his cell in the Arcatraz.

While the Arcatraz is a place of imprisonment for dangerous beings the Naaru encountered, Millhouse, in fact, was merely a victim of circumstance - a stowaway who was in the wrong Naaru vessel at the wrong time.[2] It is unknown how he actually got to a Naaru vessel but it's quite possible that his curiosity over the mysterious Naaru and his knowledge of the Arcane played a major part in his entry.

In combat, he appears to be a jack of all trades, using Improved Frostbolts, [Ice Block], [Pyroblast] and [Improved Arcane Missiles]. Of course, most elite NPC's have grown beyond the simple boundaries of talent specs, and Millhouse is no different.


Cataclysm This section concerns content related to Cataclysm.

Millhouse Manastorm in the Stonecore

Since the Cataclysm, Millhouse returned as a member of the Twilight's Hammer cult. It was perhaps his proximity to Skyriss—a servant of the Old Gods—that led to him joining the cult.[3] He was involved in their operations in Deepholm, and appeared numerous times in the Stonecore. He had apparently acquired a new spell called "Impending Doooooom!", but its effects were unknown as he was interrupted by the arrival of Corborus. He and his Twilight's Hammer loyalists were knocked over the precipice, and was suspected to have been killed in the impact.

Having survived, he joined the Brawler's Guild as a gladiator. Apparently, the Stonecore was merely a setback.

If the player has a Level 2 inn, which becomes available beginning with their Tier 2 garrison, Manastorm will show up on the second floor as a quest giver. After quickly assuring the player that he's changed, he asks for help in collecting a piece of equipment for a humanitarian project he's working on. After helping him out, he joins the growing fort as a follower.


Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

Millhouse is searching for the  [Nightborne Soulstone] within the Arcway tunnels near Felsoul Hold, only to be captured by the Burning Legion. When the Archmage of the Tirisgarde, accompanied by Kalecgos, comes searching for a corrupted Archmage Vargoth within the tunnels, they free Millhouse and join forces. Eventually, the two find Vargoth within the tunnels, but the possessed mage manages to escape. Afterwards, Millhouse joins the Tirisgarde to aid in their search for the Soulstone.[citation needed] 

Eventually, the Tirisgarde succeeds in rescuing Vargoth and manages to use the Soulstone to imprison Kathra'natir, the dreadlord possessing the mage. During the following celebration, Millhouse tries to claim his prize, only for Khadgar to refuse him, promising instead to aid him in search of other artifacts. Millhouse then runs off, exclaiming "You're not my friends anymore!".[4] He remains a Champion of the Archmage, however.

He sent an image of himself to the Violet Hold battling with the adventurers against his wife, Millificent Manastorm who managed to escape.

During the quest N Mage [10-45] Finding Ebonchill, the player finds a book titled "The Manastorm Decision," mentioning Millhouse as being the son of the dangerous Magnus Manastorm.


Shadowlands This section concerns content related to Shadowlands.

At an unknown point in time, Millhouse made a deal with the loa Bwonsamdi for some of his mojo for his experiments.

When he and his wife were confronted by adventurers, he instantly realized that the loa had sent them to recover his mojo, which caused his wife to become outraged that he had made a deal with Bwonsamdi too. In response, Millhouse called her out on her hypocrisy, and they subsequently fought Bwonsamdi's agents. After being beaten, he surrendered and declared that he would prefer Millificent over the mojo, an admission that deeply touched Millificent.

With the mojo in their possession, Bwonsamdi's agents returned to the loa, while the Manastorms affirmed their love towards one another.
