Loken didn't want to fight Thorim in a straight up fight (since he'd lose) so he pinned the murder of Thorim's wife Sif on the Frost Giants (most likely their now deceased king Arngrim, who enjoyed a good meal of gigantic wyrms in life, and even in death still enjoys a squrimy repast once a day) leading Thorim, who is a very action oriented guy, to go declare war on the Sons. (It's not clear where Hodir was at this time. Was he already gone? Did Loken arrange for this little distraction to keep the other watchers off guard while he took them out one by one? We don't know yet.) After creating the Thunderfall region, Thorim slunk off to brood atop his Temple of Storms for a very long time, because the king of the Sons of Hodir (again, most likely Arngrim) placed a rune on the hammer preventing Thorim from getting it back. King Jokkum, the current ruler of the Sons, says it was the last thing his father ever did. Since you can find and accept quests from Arngrim's frozen corpse (which looks much like the frozen giants and dwarves in the Thunderfall, except it's seated) this would seem to confirm that Arngrim was indeed the patsy for Loken. At some point either during or after this particular bit of bad business, the Sons found themselves at war with crazy Vrykul women who want to replace Sif as Thorim's wife. It's unclear why this war started, although it may have something to do with the Frost Vrykul just being loyal enough to Thorim to keep fighting after he stopped. When you arrive in the Storm Peaks, you soon find yourself embroiled in this ancient conflict, first on the wow gold Vrykul side, then after speaking to Thorim you end up helping the Sons in order to get Thorim his hammer and armor back. This leads Thorim to go fight Loken and you should really do that quest chain if you haven't already, I've probably spoiled it more than I should as it is. You're then tasked by King Jokkum with getting even, because by this point the giants are fully aware that Loken set them up in the first place, and also to kill Volkhan while you're at it. In order to get this far you will have had to do a series of quests retrieving various artifacts for the Sons, including the anvil of Fjorn, a fire giant. Thorim is actually the guy who asks you to whack Fjorn as a make up gift to the Sons, WoW GoldWoW Goldwhich begs all sorts of questions. Why do the Sons hate Fjorn and Volkhan? Are the fire giants responsible for the sulfur left behind at the Temple of Winter? The Sons will eventually task you to retrieve various artifacts of Hodir, including his spear, horn and hat (you can see my warrior floating in front of Hodir's chapeau in the accompanying image) which you then have to spend a lot of wow gold time thrusting, blowing and polishing in order to get the Sons to really like you. It's all ludicrously boisterous and almost parodically hyper-masculine, broken up only by feeding worms to King Jokkum's deceased father Arngrim and doing favors for a giant worg. The entire time I was working on these quests, I half expected King Jokkum to ask me if I liked gladiator movies.That's all.
