Ironforge Runes.


I was in Steelfury’s Weapon Emporium in Iron Forge waiting for a Lfg to pop on my Shadow Priest  when I noticed these symbols inside on the stair well, so I googled stuff like “Runes on Walls on iron forge” and got nothing.

I recognise them as being Runes. However some of them are a bit odd – I had an interest in Nordic Mythology when I was younger,

If you look at the below table  – this is the most basic of Runic scripts,  there are also Danish, Swedish- Norse, Anglo Saxon Futhorc – if your interested  Ancient Scripts have a good history.

This symbol isn’t really in the Runic scripts

But It could be a Z

The next one is clearly either an A ( Futhark)  or a ae if Anglo Saxon

The next one could either be a N?  but I think it looks closer to the Japanese symbol for 1000 1,000 千 sen

Because the following Symbol  also doesn’t really appear in the Runic Alphabets  , it could a H in Anglo saxon – it is the Japanese symbol for San,  or 3  三 san – and thats just another language I recognise,  I’m sure there are many others.

Some of the Symbols are quite Obvious,  If I take that little Triangle thing as a End of Sentence thing

It says

Hizanohime

or Hi Zano Hi Me?

Who is Zano?

However…

These in an unnamed shop with stairs going up,  are the same Runes in a backwards pattern

I know that some developer probably sat there did some random strokes  ( lets not start on the origins of the death knight runes ( Hey!  I shall look at them and see how easy it is to match)  but I was curious to see if they had a hidden cookie in these ones. You can see though,  that some are definitely based on a real script
