There are two underwater demigods known as ancients in Vashj'ir. They have a lot of internal room inside of their shells, within which their brains and two hearts are exposed. Their well-being seems to be tied to the health of the surrounding reefs. It is unclear exactly how they're related to the Ancient Guardians, if at all.
- A third corrupted demigod was planned to appear in the cut northern third of the zone, but it was later moved to the Abyssal Maw dungeon, which was also scrapped.
