Taurson, the Beastly Boxer, is a Highmountain tauren vignette found in a boxing cave south of Skyhorn in Highmountain. Players who approach him can challenge him to a fight. After sufficiently damaging Taurson, he admits defeat and runs out of the cave, allowing the player to loot Taurson's Champion Belt from Taurson's Prize.

When spoken to:

I'm the heavyweight champion of Highmountain! You think you can take me on, kid? It'll be a punch out! Show me what you're worth... but when I knock you down DON'T GET UP!
Gossip I'm ready!

During fight:

Your experience doesn't match mine!

Using Lightning Jabs:

  • I'm gonna charge right over you!
  • You think you can match the strength of my fists?


Okay stop! STOP! Watch the jaw! You win! I've never seen such speed before. You're a good kid, mac. Keep it up. I'll be back for my belt some day.
