Types of phantoms

  • Many visions are seen at Karazhan in the book The Last Guardian (they are described as phantoms, as well as; time-lost visions, timelost wraiths, ghosts, ghosts of the past, specters, and illusions).[1] These visions were said not to be capable of causing physical or magical harm.

Recently, Karazhan has reawakened — an evil presence has taken the tower as its own, its halls crawling with spirits.
