Gara'jal the Spiritbinder
|Race||Zandalar troll (Humanoid)|
|Affiliation(s)||Zandalar Tribe, Lei Shen|
|Location||Mogu'shan Vaults, Throne of Thunder|
Within the mysterious vaults of the mogu; untouched by time for thousands of years, Gara'jal led a ban of Zandalar trolls and assaulted the vaults. Gara'jal was determined to crack open this trove of ancient mystery and bring back whatever arcane power and knowledge he could find. Gifted with dark talents and surrounded by a loyal cadre of Zandalar mystics, he has broken through the outer walls and will not rest until the vaults belong to him.
However the defenders of Azeroth stopped his plans and defeated him, which forced Gara'jal into the spirit world.
