The Icemist tribe were a group of tauren that lived in a single place in Northrend. At some point in the past, they colonized a small outpost in the Dragonblight near the border of Lake Wintergrasp and called it Icemist Village. The tribe would not enter the blight proper very often. They preferred the cold of the lake to the bitter air of doom and death of the blight. The tauren were friendly and would supply food, drink, and clothes to those in need. They would help desperate and injured travelers they found out in the wilderness.
When visited the village several years ago, it was being ruled by the tauren .
Relation to canon
In World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, it appears this group became the basis for the taunka and winter tauren and Icemist taunka likely mean the same thing. However, there is a few notable differences, like them being led by by , rather than and the taunka living in several camps throughout Northrend, rather than just Icemist Village. While some players have speculated that the description from the RPG is still canon, with the tribe having simply changed chieftains and several new villages having been established, there is currently nothing to indicate this in canon sources. It is noted that the RPG describes a lot of locations that were also present in WotLK, but have a different backstory, so it simply being altered for the game has precedence.
