Adventure Guide

Shortly after the Sundering, a dark messenger arrived on the fresh shores of Zandalar, intending to bring the newly isolated tribe into the service of N'Zoth. Zek'voz was prepared to entice, bribe, cajole, corrupt, or simply kill them, but he was not prepared to encounter the defenses of Uldir. He was captured, studied, disassembled, and stored in the Titans' Archives, where he has waited for a chance to escape.

  • Zek'voz's model is called aqir.m2 in the files, though his race is never stated in-game. He was confirmed to be an aqir when other aqiri mobs with the same model were introduced in patch 8.3.0.
