World of Warcraft - The Loa gods Lore

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in World of Warcraft Classic, WoW Classic Story Arcs

The Trolls draw power for their Voodoo Magics by performing rituals and invoking the Primal gods or Forest spirits: the Loa gods.  According to Warcraft RPG: Magic and Mayhem, the Loa spirits are more powerful than the Elementals, but not as powerful as gods.

The Shadow Hunters’ faith and communion with the Loa gods grants them shadow and healing magic and other abilities. Shadow Hunters learn magic that hinders enemies and aid allies, gaining a unique mix of spells that delve into the more occult aspects of the Loa

Among the known Loa gods are:

Shadra – Spider Loa

Shirvallah – Tiger Loa

Bethekk – Panther Loa

Hir’eek – Bat Loa

Mueh’zala
The Tablet of Theka says Mueh’zala is the God of Death.

Loa Zanza
He appears in Zul’Gurub Instance as an ethereal form within one of the many temples. The Arcanums created from the various tomes originated from Troll magic were stolen from Zanza by the High Elves, and used against his people.  The Trolls of Yojamba Isle, the Zandalar Tribe, respect and venerate Loa Zanza.  However, with the rebirth of Hakkar the Soulflayer, these Zandalar Trolls prayed to Zanza to grant powers to heroes of other races to defeat Hakkar in Zul’Gurub.

The Loa Legba
He is a master of swift motion. Through him, the shadow hunter learns to move with great speed granting the ability of Batltle Stride.

Loa Lukou
The Loa of healing and respite, she grants the ability to heal allies with a Healing Wave. With a word, the Shadow Hunter invokes healing with a wave of soothing light.

Loa Ogoun
The Loa of war who grants the Shadow hunter the Hex ability to place dire curses upon his enemies. This Loa ability allows Shadow Hunters to turn an enemy into a frog.

Loa Dambala
The Loa of serpents and treachery, Loa Dambala teaches the shadow hunter to move swiftly and quietly by changing his shape into a serpent or snake. Shadow hunters can change form to serpent or back to normal for an hour or when he wishes to turn back.

Loa Samedi
The Loa of cemeteries and the restful sleep of the dead. The undead are an abomination in his eyes. The shadow hunter can cast Smite againts a undead creature.

Loa Shango
The Loa that controls the realm of storms. Shango guards the secrets of lightning and mayhem. The Shadow Hunter may channel the fury of Shango, unleashing a lighting bolt named Stormspear, that does electricity damage.

A troll in Zul’Gurub calls the name of another who might be another Loa god: Hethiss.  Supposedly a loa of serpents.  However, Ula-Tek is also referred as a serpent goddess.

The Shrine of Ula-Tek is located in Zul’Aman.  Zul’Aman will be an instanced region in World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade.  Zul’Aman is located northeast of Light’s Hope (Eastern Plaguelands) and Southeast of Quel’Thalas.
