  • In Greek mythology, maenads were the female followers of Dionysus and the most significant members of the Thiasus, the god's retinue. Their name literally translates as "raving ones". Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by Dionysus into a state of ecstatic frenzy through a combination of dancing and intoxication.
  • If one zoomes in the camera and pauses the game at the right moment, it's possible to see that the Trackers throw their knives with the handle forward, not the blade. Looks like they are still getting used to their new weapon after the Ragnarök expansion.
