Notes

  • The Hakkar tablet used to state that Hakkar was "defeated during a union of Zandalar with the Alliance and Horde" when Chronicle Volume 3 established that it was Zandalar and the Horde that defeated him. This was fixed during beta.
  • These beings possessing a plaque in the House of "the Lost Loa" may imply that these loa are dead for good. While as much was assumed for some, such as the Drakkari loa who were sacrificed and had their essences consumed, the following loa have a plaque despite the fact that:
    • Hakkar did survive his encounter with Jin'do the Godbreaker, and smote the troll after he was freed by the adventurers, telling them that he would "deal with [them] another time" before returning them to the physical plane.[1]
    • Tharon'ja returned after the events of Drak'Tharon Keep, his eternal spirit making an appearance on the Isle of Thunder.
    • Har'koa stated that Rhunok would return, his spirit living on forever.[2]
    • Quetz'lun, after her physical embodiment was sacrificed, created her own underworld domain within the Shadowlands where she tortured the followers and high priests that turned on her.[3]
