Shirvallah is a loa of tigers revered notably by Zandalari, Gurubashi and Darkspear trolls. Their last champion was High Priest Thekal. At some point, Thekal had another high priest, who wielded  [The Warmace of Shirvallah], a brutal mace with an ornate frame which claimed many lives in an unbidden attempt to honor Shirvallah. Long ago, it was lost to the sea with the high priest who wielded it.

Shirvallah was held in Zul'Gurub against their will when the Hakkari were attempting to summon Hakkar the Soulflayer. By the time of the war against the Iron Horde, troll[1] druids had created a way for all druids to take on a half-tiger form like those of Shirvallah's champions, called the [Claws of Shirvallah].

Priests of Shirvallah are present in the Hall of the Lesser Loa in Zuldazar.

In the Hearthstone expansion Rastakhan's Rumble, Shirvallah serves as the patron of Shirvallah's Tigers, a proud and righteous team of troll paladins, and personally appears as a legendary paladin card. Her flavor text reads: "On bended knee Thekal placed his weapon upon Shirvallah’s altar, whereupon she slowly knocked it off with her paw."

Strangely, Shirvallah's Hearthstone appearance is almost identical to Kimbul's model in Battle for Azeroth, even including the scar over the right eye, with only a few armor pieces to set them apart.
