|Title||Loa of Night
Lord of the Midnight Sky
|Location||Sanctum of Midnight, Nazmir|
Hir'eek (pronounced high-REEK), the Lord of the Midnight Sky, is a bat loa. He is represented on Azeroth through a champion of his choosing, a position once held by the deceased High Priestess Jeklik.
Hir'eek would eventually be corrupted by G'huun and the blood trolls, and subsequently slain by an adventurer with the aid of Jo'chunga and his poison. His death was mourned by the Zandalari. As a Wild God, his spirit presumably returned to the Emerald Dream.
- In Battle for Azeroth, Hir'eek's model uses the felbat skeleton.
- During the Battle for Azeroth alpha build at BlizzCon 2017 Hir'eek was referred to with both male and female pronouns, varying between different quests. This was probably just a mistake.

A totem most likely dedicated to the bat loa on the Echo Isles.
- It is very likely that Hir'eek is the reason Darkspear troll druids transform into bats, like how his fellow Gurubashi Loa Shirvallah gave them the ability to transform into tigers.
- Hir'eek may have a connection to gargoyles, since during the Totem of Hir'eek turns the player into one. Jeklik, Hir'eek's former high priestess, also turned into a gargoyle during her fight in Zul'Gurub. Hir'eek may have created gargoyles in the same way other Wild Gods created races, like Aviana and the harpies.
