The Sons of Hodir are a clan[1] 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 factions of frost giants named the Sons of Hodir struck up a friendship with the Titanic watcher Thorim. However, after being corrupted by Yogg-Saron, the Keeper Loken killed his brother's wife 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, at Arngrim, who was in the middle of a battle against a clan of frost dwarves. The explosion of Krolmir striking the ground killed all those nearby and froze the entire tableau for all time, which is known today as Thunderfall.[1] While Thorim gave into despair and rested in a stupor for centuries at the Temple of Storms, the Sons of Hodir were deeply stunned at such an unexpected betrayal.

Dun Niffelem in Storm Peaks.

Centuries later, at the time of the war against the Lich King, Thorim discovered the truth with the aid of adventurers serving the Sons of Hodir. Roused from his stupor, he vowed to take the fight against Loken. He enlisted the adventurers to help him to make up for his past sins and to regain the trust of the Sons of Hodir.[2] Members of the Sons of Hodir also encouraged adventurers to aid them in order to heal the rift between Thorim and the rest of the frost giants.[3]

While the Sons of Hodir were grateful for the adventurers' aid, they remarked that much had to be done in order to repair their relationship with the keeper, with some being even doubtful that the relationship could be repaired.[4][5] While Thorim prepared for the battle, adventurers were able to further prove their own worth to the Sons of Hodir, which allowed the hearts of the frost giants to soften to Thorim.[6] He eventually made peace with them, and they in turn have helped him reach out to other frost giants to make amends.[1]

After the clash between the brothers ended with Loken capturing Thorim, King Jokkum sent the adventurers to avenge Thorim by venturing into Halls of Lightning, in order to kill Loken.[7]

  • 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 Inv misc dust 06 [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.
