Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Hemet Nesingwary is a quest giver and game hunter seen in Nagrand, Sholazar Basin and Valley of the Four Winds. Considered the greatest hunter on Azeroth, he leads safaris to hunt the wildlife of Azeroth and beyond, and is the author of The Green Hills of Stranglethorn. He is generally to be found in the wild, camped out with a group of fellow hunters, surrounded by a variety of grizzly trophies collected from the native game of the area. Nesingwary and his cohorts tutor adventurers on the hunting and trapping of wild creatures.
Hemet fought in many battles alongside Ajeck Rouack's father, and has been described by his servant Barnil Stonepot as a war hero of the Alliance. Nesingwary is the father of Hemet Nesingwary Jr., who has taken over some of his father's duties in Stranglethorn in order to allow him to focus on new and even more exotic game in newly discovered lands.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although Hemet says, "...you'll need [your extra card]," it is not difficult to win without ever playing either the fourth card in the opening hand (Nightblade) or the right-most card in the hand.
  • Until the Goblins vs Gnomes expansion, Hemet Nesingwary was the only tutorial boss who did not also appear as a Legendary card.
  • The name "Hemet Nesingwary" is an anagram of Ernest Hemingway, a famous American author and journalist. Hemingway was known as an avid hunter, fisherman, and safari traveler, much like his Warcraft namesake.
