For the mob in Spirit Glen, see Boggart (mob).

A boggart.

Boggarts, also called changelings,[1] are shapeshifting spirits found in Ardenweald. They can turn into animals or members of other races, such as faeries and vorkai, allowing them to sow chaos and discontent; they are often seen turning into Drust-like or ravager wasp-like illusions. A place full of disguised boggarts is considered haunted.[2] They appear to be collaborating with the spriggans and are empowered by Mueh'zala, such as Noisul of Many Faces.[3][4]

Trivia

  • The boggart is a spirit from English folklore. In recent years, they have been used as a specific creature in Harry Potter. The shapeshifting, inherently spectral nature of the kind seen in Ardenweald is closer to the way they're presented in the latter than the former.
  • Their other name used in N [60] Silk Shortage is also a reference to the real-world folklore, the changeling, usually tied to fairy myth like much of Ardenweald.
  • Boggarts use a shade model covered in mist.
