A 16-Year-Old Mystery Solved in WoW: Shadowlands


  • Shadowlands expansion answers the question “Where is Mankirk’s wife?”
  • this is a reference to an extremely troublesome task that could once been done in World of Warcraft.
  • The Shadowlands expansion pack seems to have solved one of the oldest “puzzles” in World of Warcraft – we find in it the answer to the question “where is Mankirk’s wife?”. We are talking about a task in which players were to find the proverbial other half of a certain orc who was separated from her as a result of dramatic events.

    The quest was known to be extremely difficult – it was played in a large location called Barrens, and at that time there were no markers in the game, so finding the right place was a problem for many people. Numerous players inquired about Olga’s location (that was the name of the wanted one) in the general chat.

    It is worth noting that, in fact, Mankirk’s wife has never been found – the player’s hero only found a body that was reported by the unfortunate orcnot being 100% sure it was what she wanted. Cataclysm too the quest was completely removed from the game and it looked like the story was over.

    The player only finds the body of an Orcish woman.

    However, now, after a dozen or so years, the Shadowlands expansion sheds new light on this issue – the player may come across Olga in one of the locations of the afterlife. It is located in a place where he has been fighting with other undead for all eternity, which suggests that Mankirk’s wife was not only a victim but also a real warrior (in World of Warcraft after death, everyone ends up in a place that fits their character and nature – for better or for worse).
