Warlords of Draenor

Warlords of Draenor This section concerns content related to Warlords of Draenor.

Shortly before the war in Draenor, Ner'zhul was threatened by Grommash Hellscream and forcibly coerced into breaking the ancient laws of his clan. He called upon the Dark Star's power, and he and his clan would gain access to Void magic, using it to raise undead and fight the draenei in Shadowmoon Valley for the Iron Horde. Despite the efforts of Yrel and Velen, Ner'zhul successfully summoned the Dark Star. Velen then sacrificed himself in order to purify the Dark Star and bring K'ara back to the Light.

K'ara, once again a being of Light, helped Yrel, Maraad, and the combined draenei and Alliance army in the Defense of Karabor annihilating the Iron Fleet.

The naaru eventually provided the final and ultimate blessing for the Alliance commander and their legendary ring. During the ceremony, it spoke and acted through the spirit of Velen.[1]

Notes and trivia

  • On the alternate Draenor, adventurers can receive its blessing from a Pilgrim's Shrine in Shadowmoon Valley.
  • The sentence it says in its final appearance "the fate of two worlds hangs in the balance" brings a closure for Velen and Warlords of Draenor as a similar sentence was shown in the reveal WoD trailer.
  • K'arani Terrace is presumably named after it.
  • Karnoth is a shard of the Dark Star.
  • K'ara and Xe'ra are the only naaru to be referred to with feminine pronouns, with Velen repeatedly calling K'ara a "she" in A [10-40] The Prophet's Final Message. However, while Velen's audio uses "she" the text in his speech bubbles uses the gender-neutral "it." Chronicle also refers to K'ara as "it."
  • The word "Kara" literally means "Dark" in Turkish.

It is possible that the temple of Karabor was named after the K'ara, especially since one of its regions is called the K'arani Terrace.
