The Uncrowned is a secret organization of rogues who claim to be "the slayers of kings, the downfall of empires, the unseen blades that write the true history of this world." Their leaders, the Shadows, form the Council of Shadows. The Uncrowned fight the Burning Legion alongside the other class orders during the demons' third invasion, and their order hall is the secret Hall of Shadows located in the sewers of Dalaran. Some members of the Uncrowned include members of Ravenholdt, SI:7, and the Bloodsail Buccaneers.
- During Legion's alpha, Mathias Shaw was a Shadow of the Uncrowned instead of being their "enemy" impersonated by Detheroc. An orc called The Hood was also present as the leader of the Shattered Hand. It is possible that Shaw and the Hood were both there as Alliance and Horde representatives respectively. They were later removed in a patch that also added Tess Greymane.
- A scrapped mission suggests that the Uncrowned would've been established only in Legion rather than being a pre-existing organization.
- It seems that the Uncrowned are ready to kill in order to protect their secrecy, as evidenced by the dead Unwary Adventurers in their class hall.
- In Hearthstone, Tess Greymane's greetings emote is: "The Uncrowned send their regards." which is apparently an homage to Game of Thrones's line "The Lannisters send their regards."
- In the Battle for Azeroth alpha and beta, a club at Hook Point in Boralus had Uncrowned banners hanging on the walls.
