The Sons of Hodir are a faction of frost giants located in Storm Peaks region of Northrend and named after the titanic watcher Hodir. They are a war-like race that make their home in Dun Niffelem.


Long ago the titans created "seed races", including giants, to watch the world of Azeroth together with watchers. The Sons of Hodir in particular struck up a friendship with the Titanic watcher Thorim, who eventually married Sif. Some time after falling to the corruption of Yogg-Saron Thorim's brother Loken killed Sif and tricked Thorim into believing that King Arngrim and the frost giants were responsible. In a fit of rage, Thorim threw his hammer, Krolmir, causing a massive explosion that created the scene known today as Thunderfall. While Thorim gave into despair and rested in a stupor for an unknown amount of years, the Sons of Hodir were deeply stunned at such an unexpected betrayal.

Years later, adventurers coming to Northrend to deal with the Lich King, would eventually meet up with Thorim through a series of events. Thorim, who has since learned the truth of Sif's death, is roused from his stupor and vows to take the fight to Loken. To this end and to make up for his past sins Thorim enlists the aid of adventurers to regain the trust of the Sons of Hodir.[1]

While the Sons of Hodir are grateful for the adventurers' aid, they remark that much must be done in order to repair their relationship with Thorim, with some being even doubtful that the relationship can be repaired.[2][3] While Thorim prepares for the battle against Loken, adventurers are able to further prove their own worth to the Sons of Hodir, which allows the hearts of the frost giants to soften to Thorim.[4] After the clash between brothers ends with Loken captured Thorim, King Jokkum sends adventurers to avenge Thorim's loss venturing into Halls of Lightning and kill Loken.[5]

Members of the Sons of Hodir also encourage adventurers to aid them in order to heal the rift between Thorim and the rest of the frost giants.[6]

  • The Sons of Hodir's claim to fame in Wrath of the Lich King is that they are the providers of all the Shoulder enchants for Wrath of the Lich King (except for scribe-only enchants). The first tier is available at Honored, the second at Exalted. The Honored shoulder Enchants for the Sons of Hodir are equivalent to the Exalted enchants provided by the Aldor and Scryers from the BC, although it might be better to burn any left over  [Holy Dust] or Arcane Runes before spending money on the Sons of Hodir ones. It is worth noting that the shoulder enchants are Bind on Account, making it so only one character per server really needs to go through the grind of being exalted.
