Jotun is a titanic watcher that walks along the Path of the Titans. He has no noteworthy drops.

He is considered to be a titanic mystery of Northrend.[1]

History

Jotun helped Tyr replace his hand with a fist of silver after his real hand had been devoured by Galakrond,[2][3] and he also added Tyr's new symbol onto his hammer. When Tyr discovered Loken's treachery, Jotun held Loken off. He was later cursed by Loken to shatter the anvil he had used to craft Tyr's hand and reshape his hammer, and to attack any ally of Tyr's;[3] the curse will not let him die.[4]

Notes

  • He has the titan-model with the titanmaleskinstone01 texture.
  • He can be mined.

Myth

  • His name is likely a reference to the old Norse Trolls or Giants, of which "Jotun" is a common Latinization of their name. The Jutun (alternately, "Jötun", or the aformentioned "Jotun") were often in conflict with the Aesir and Vanir gods. The Norse word is often tranlated into Frost Giants in pop culture, though it originally denoted any kind of "giant", including Surtr and his giants of flame in Muspellheim.
