Soggoth the Slitherer
Herald of the Old Gods
|Affiliation(s)||Old Gods' forces|
According to Archaeologist Groff, the Master's Glaive was the site of an ancient battle. The titans sent twenty of their stone giants against Soggoth. Of those twenty giants, only one survived. The tablets say that Kronn, the largest of the stone giants, allowed himself to be entangled by Soggoth's tendrils -- just long enough to be lifted close enough to the creature's skull and within reach of Kronn's mighty sword.
In the wake of the shattering of Azeroth the Twilight's Hammer clan sought to resurrect Soggoth. However due to interference of the Ancients and the Alliance they were only able to bring forth a remnant of the being back to alive. During the battle that follows Alliance adventures are able to slay the Avatar of Soggoth, putting an end to the Slitherer and saving Darkshore.
- He is called "Herald of the Old Gods" by Thalya the Voidcaller.
- Judging by similarities in name, he is possibly inspired by Yog-Sothoth, as is Yogg-Saron.
- It is also possible that the name comes from shoggoths, which are shape-shifting blob-like creatures. Shoggoths were created by the Elder Things in the Lovecraft Mythos to serve as slaves for construction, thus created to serve/work for the Old Ones in Warcraft.
