Elite Tauren Chieftain, Rock God, or ETC for short, is a medium difficulty melee warrior. Aside from the amazing ability to wield five guitars and a keytar at once, ETC's greatest talent is to leap anywhere on the battlefield, making him extremely mobile despite being a hulking mass of hairy muscle. He's able to knock around and stun enemies with guitar solos and, if he plays a particularly sweet tune, he can buff his friends.

Background Edit

The Power of the Horde incarnated by brutal rhythms and blistering guitar riffs into the form of the most elite tauren chieftain to ever headbang across the surface of Azeroth. Don't bother putting on socks. He's just going to rock them off anyways.
