Fel corruption

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Prolongued use of fel magic may corrupt the users. It seems that fel magic has a tendency of turning users and those that spend enough time in the presence of those users into a more uniform demonic form.

Examples of this transformation are the orcs, blood elves, eredar, and to an extent, satyrs. It is also notable that out of the many Burning Legion races only a few have been seen uncorrupted.

Sometimes with small intake of fel energies the race will mutate to have more demonic features, such as the orcs change in skin color and size more similar to that of the Pit Lord's they drank blood from. and the blood elves eyes changing to that of emerald to represent the magics they absorbed. With major exposure the race begins to loose much similarity to the original though still having some traits of the original species. With some extreme cases such as Satyr or Wretched the race almost bares no similar appearance at all to the original. Some examples of fel corruption are: large claws, red tented skin, horns, fangs, demonic runes, ect.

Fel magic works a bit like radiation; it permeates the area and seeps into anything in the vicinity. Anything near a source of fel magic shows signs of slight corruption. Such effects would take a very long time to wear off.[1]
