The In-Between is a miasma of energies that separates and surrounds the realms of the Shadowlands as well as a parallel reality to each realm that can be entered through rifts. It is vast, but far from empty. It is inhabited by both wondrous and terrifying beings and is said to hold many secrets, but it is a chaotic place that few can navigate and few have ever explored. The In-Between is presumed to be the home realm of the devourers. There are several lost land masses in this place, such as Korthia before it was pulled into the Maw. The In-Between was once rich with streams of anima connecting the different realms of Death, but the current anima drought has caused the realms to become cut off from one another.
Players are sent through the In-Between on anima wyrms when they take flight paths between the different realms. In addition, the visuals displayed while a player is dead in the Shadowlands are meant to give the feeling that the character is half tethered to their body and half traveling through the In-Between.
- Unlike the Twisting Nether in Outland and the various seas of Azeroth and Draenor, the In-Between is only visited on flight paths and has no General Chat associated with it.
- While traveling on flight paths through the In-Between, the player moves at varying velocities. At its peak, the player moves at 4316% movement speed, making it one of the fastest transports in the game.
- The devourer rifts to the In-Between visually resemble the portals inside Spirit Obelisks.
- The In-Between skybox seen during is identical to the Void skybox seen while affected by the Witness the Past buff during quests at Agthia's Repose. In addition, the ice effect covering the borders of the screen during the former quest is the same as when fighting the Orphaned Memory during .
