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.
  • An entity called The Darkness appears in the Kobolds & Catacombs expansion for Hearthstone. Due to its connection to snuffing out candles, The Darkness may be intended to be the same creature as the Devouring Darkness.
  • Uul'gyneth, who has the title of The Darkness, has the same role to the Highmountain tauren that the Devouring Darkness has to the Bluewax kobolds. H [45-60] The Darkness states that Uul'gyneth even haunted the kobolds, hinting that the Devouring Darkness might have been retconned.
  • The Devouring Darkness might also be one of Uul'gyneth's minions, like the Shadows and Fragments of Uul.
