Ancient Eredun Scroll

Eredun writing on an Ancient Eredun Scroll.

Eredun (a.k.a. Demonic)[1] is the language of demons. Knowing that other sentient beings would inevitably join the Legion, the eredar declared that their primary language called Eredun would be the Legion's common language.[2] The written version of the language of the nathrezim vaguely resembles Eredun.[3] The Draenei language is likely a dialect of Eredun, if not the exact same language. They use the same alphabet.

Demon hunters can speak and understand Demonic, and can use it to communicate cross-faction between the Alliance and Horde.

Before the addition of demon hunters, it was not possible for players to learn this language, so anything spoken in it was indecipherable. However, warlocks under the effect of Spell shadow demonform [Metamorphosis] and Spell shadow metamorphosis [Dark Apotheosis] used to be able to understand and converse in Demonic. The warlock spell Spell shadow curseoftounges [Curse of Tongues] also causes the target to temporarily speak in Demonic.

Eredun primer[]

This is a list of Eredun phrases and words, for which the translations have been officially confirmed by Blizzard.

Other Eredun words and phrases[]

Demonic/Eredun (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.

So we can summarise that:

  • Draen means "exile" or "exiled"
  • Ei means "one" or "ones"
  • Or means "refuge" in Eredun.
  • Achor she-ki! - May mean "Feast my Pet", or "Eat your fill!" other phrases said by Omor.
  • "Galtak Ered'nash!" ("All Hail the Burning Blade") may also be Eredun, but this questions the meaning of the name "eredar." It is not known if the name "eredar" has any sort of translation. "Ered" clearly has a specific meaning, as evidenced by "eredar," "ered'nash," and "ered'ruin." It is possible that it can be rendered as either "burning" or "corrupt", depending on context.

It is also probable that "sha" means "light". "No", me, often said.

  • Ered'ruin = "doomguard"
  • Shat = "Light".
  • Ruin = "Guard".
  • il/ila/Zil - May mean "and" by using speculation that Eredun maybe changes word "and" trough genders.

Words in "Demonic" (Eredun)[]

This is the list of words created by the in-game language parser for the Demonic language, and is listed as language number eight (word range 547-672) in the Language text file. It shares words from Titan, Draconic and Draenei language parsers, although with slight differences in the word lists in each. Draenei cannot understand "Demonic" (Eredun).

Note: The language algorithm used by the in-game "translator" merely makes the words look like "Demonic" (Eredun). It does not actually translate words. Therefore, translated in-game speech isn't true "Demonic" (Eredun). It is not certain if these words are true words in the Eredun language or not.

"Amanare" represents two separate words in the Demonic language parser, as words #627 and #628. As such both versions of the word are used to filter two separate sets of words, based on hidden criteria.

Draenei definitions[]

Language/dialect, which may not have the same meaning in demonic Eredun.


  • Because Demonic and Thalassian can both speak cross-faction, between demon hunters and blood elves/void elves respectively, a blood elf demon hunter can speak to two different races of the opposing faction: void elves via Thalassian and night elf demon hunters via Demonic.
