Out of curiosity is the term Kalimag mentioned in the games, or is it a term first introduced in the RPG?Baggins 12:59, 3 December 2006 (EST)

Well, it was in the original Warcraft RPG book, and that came out before WoW. Elementals in WoW do indeed speak Kalimag. --Kakwakas 20:03, 16 December 2006 (EST)

So the term, "Kalimag" is specifically mentioned in WoW?Baggins 15:25, 24 December 2006 (EST)

Yes. That water elemental there is speaking Kalimag, though you can't see the chat box. If you do the quest yourself, you can check it out (I have). --Kakwakas 17:10, 24 December 2006 (EST)

Elementals in Outland speaking Kalimag

There is a quest in Nagrand where one helps a fire elemental burn the tents of hostile Lost Ones. Once summoned to burn down the huts, the fire elementals speak some Kalimag. It's rather peculiar, though, since these guys are from Draenor (Outland) and they are speaking Kalim(dor) weird. --Presea 20:38, 27 January 2007 (EST)

Elemental Plane is apparently connected to both Azeroth and Outland.Baggins 00:48, 6 February 2007 (EST)

I should probably point ou that Kalimdor is a Titan word. Titans have been to many places in the universe. Kalimag is probably derived from Titan word for all we know.Baggins 01:18, 18 March 2007 (EDT)
"reth reth reth" probably means "burn burn burn" instead of "fire fire fire", based on what they say in the German client: "dratir dratir dratir", which doesn't fit to "Feuer = fire"' but to "brenne/brennt = burn (imperative)" ~ User:Nathanyelŋɑϑ 11:47, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

The elementals are created or related to the Old Gods not the Titans.

According to Lore, elementals should not be related to the Titans. Almost all the elementals except for stone guardians are aspects from the original world before the Titans meddled in it, and should be attributed to Old Gods. So having them speak the same language as the ones in Outlands is suspect. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ch1npokomon (talk · contr). 16:49, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Why the titans? Kalimag, like Common (in the lore, not the ingame Common) could be a universal language, just for elementals. Otherwise, all elementals, which are not created by the Old Gods, just enslaved by them, could "stem" (however much that term would apply) from the same origins - after all, they are guardians/children of "nature". Though most likely, the developers likely omitted a separate Draenor elemental language on purpose, because they're lazy, and hardly anyone would care. :P ~ Nathanyel (talk) 20:22, July 17, 2010 (UTC)
