Lore[edit | edit source]

While not named as such, this is clearly one of the mistlurkers, mysterious predatory creatures who dwell in the mists surrounding the continent of Pandaria. As Pandaria's mists were partially created by the Sha of Pride, a spawn of the Old God Y'Shaarj, this may explain the Cyclopian Horror's emergence in response to the whispers of the Old Gods.

Warcraft Wiki icon.pngThis section uses content from the Warcraft Wiki.
The mistlurkers are primitive peaceful creatures living in the Lower and Upper Sumprushes of Townlong Steppes. At some point the yaungol shamans, who used special torches to communicate with them, started working alongside them. However, recently the mist-shamans started using those same torches to control and kill the mistlurkers that refused their orders. Most of them do not speak the languages spoken by humans or orcs, however a few like Orbiss have learned to speak it.
The mist helps sustain their bodies. Mist that is warm and fragrant, like the mist in the Upper Sumprushes, is nutritive to them. They also ingest plants and plant-like creatures, like the nature spirits and drink the blood of creatures they can capture.
