The Lightbound are a group of draenei, Mag'har orcs and ogres led by High Exarch Yrel in service of the naaru. The orcs were turned to the Light either willingly or forcefully.

Battle for Azeroth

Battle for Azeroth This section concerns content related to Battle for Azeroth.

After Archimonde's fall, the orcs and draenei worked together to drive the Burning Legion from Draenor. Orcs and draenei lived alongside each other for years. However, without demons to fight, the draenei became fixated upon the Light. The naaru incited them to spread their influence among the orcs, and a few converted to the Light willingly. However, others had the Light forced upon them.[2] The Lightbound were driven by the fact that the Mag'har orcs were choking the life from the planet, and dooming the land to desiccation. Grommash believed that the Light had doomed them.[3]





Removed from game The subject of this section did not make it out of the beta stages.


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

The Lightbound seem to be analogous to the main universe's Army of the Light. They use the same batteries and warframes, wear a similar tabard, and receive visions from a "Light Mother".

  • The Lightbound's future as the Army of the Light is also acknowledged.[4]
