The demigods of Azeroth wield great power and have occasionally played pivotal roles in the planet's history. Nevertheless, unlike gods, most demigods have never been the objects of worship. Few demigods have temples built in their honor. Priesthoods based on the worship of a demigod are extremely rare. Nevertheless, demigods been[sic] revered in the past, and some of them continue to be respected today.
Part God, Part Other
Demigods in Warcraft are immortal, but they are neither omniscient nor omnipotent. Otherwise, among other things, they would have known immediately of the Burning Legion's first invasion, and they would have been able to thwart it with ease.
Sadly there is no question as to whether or not a demigod can be slain. Several demigods were killed during the War of the Ancients, overwhelmed by demons. In a far more recent tragedy, Cenarius was killed during the Third War by mortals under the influence of demon blood: a group of orcs led by Grom Hellscream.
