The Venom Queen,
Shadra, also known as Elortha no Shadra, is a hostile level 35 elite spider that is worshipped by the Witherbark trolls in the Hinterlands and by the Zandalari. The trolls use her venom as a powerful poison for their weapons. She is summoned by using the Idol of Shadra at her altars in Shadra'Alor.
Shortly after the events of Landfall, Shadra communicated with Vol'jin, betrayed by Garrosh Hellscream, through visions. According to Khal'ak in the distant past a few Zandalari turned away from her worship to the powers of Mogu, which has the Mother of Venom not be entirely pleased with the Zandalari renewing their ties with the Mogu. Following the Zandalari's defeat at the Shado-pan Monastery effort Bwonsamdi remarked that the silk dance would rejoice at the web Vol'jin weaved and would be a bit beholden to him due her Zandalari failing.
