In the RPG

The RPG Icon 16x36.png This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

The Shrine of Ula-Tek is the capital of the forest trolls in Zul'Aman, it is a massive ziggurat they hold sacred. The forest trolls rally around the edifice and their capital lies among its ruins. Crude troll huts mix with collapsed stone walls. This area is very heavily protected — far too heavily for most to gain entrance. Ula-Tek, apparently, is a serpent goddess, believed by some to be one of the Old Gods. The trolls worship Ula-Tek and hold the ziggurat in holy esteem, performing their dark rites and voodoo rituals among the ruins. The trolls keep their treasure — collected over centuries — within the ziggurat, which is another reason that they guard it so vigilantly.[2]

Trivia

  • The shrine was described as a ziggurat in the RPG books, and a Warcraft III map containing Quel'Thalas and Zul'Aman depicted a place called "ziggurat".

Speculation

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.

Ula'tek and the Amani's story from the RPG seems to have greatly been turned into Kith'ix's in Chronicle Volume 1. The Shrine may thus be Kith'ix's tomb, upon which Zul'Aman was built.
