lol those boss names, its cool to see that argus will have its own world bosses, to blizzes credit they've pushed out quite a few world bosses this expac, however, the naming is amusing to me. It almost seems like they smashed their face on the keyboard and then added vowels to whatever they got.

imma try, next world boss is awofenk- destroyer of worlds

Names is an interesting topic when it comes to games and mythology. Blizzard borrows a lot of naming conventions from mythology and also develop their own.

Already existing naming conventions:

-riel -iel and - rael -ael are used usually for divine beings or angels (Also corrupted ones), in Blizzard games (Andariel and Urzael for example in Diablo) but are not exclusive (Duriel is not a divine being for example)

-chro- is related to time, and Blizzard makes no exception. A lot of the Infinite Dragonflight in WoW have this naming convention (And not exclusively, as we all know our favorite Chromie.

 

Blizzard also develops their own naming conventions:

-Strasz and Strasza are THE "ahhh yes, we know that!" conventions. If you see a humanoid NPC with the word "strasza" in it, you are 100% certain that in fact, the humanoid form is a fake.

 

A few other examples:

Names that start with V- and are combo'd with a demon race, usually have vampiric traits.

-trax and -tras are always related to demons or races with demonic affinity (Such as satyrs)

Dragonflights and Elementals also have their own naming conventions.

 

 

There's probably 5 dozen more but in order to keep this already large post from getting even larger, I won't name them. For most of the bosses in this list you can make a strong guess as to what race they are or affinity they have without reading the titles (pit lord for example) although you'd make a rough prediction (Demonic) instead of accurate (Pit Lord):

 

Aedis - sounds magical, I'd personally guess it to be a mage, likely blood elf or nightborne. I would have been wrong on this one.

Zedaat - sounds imp-ish or fel-lord-ish. The title "Void-blade" does seem that I might be correct on that one.

Folnuna - sounds celestial (nuna, luna) - possibly druidic or priestly.

Alluradel - sounds very Night-elf flavored, again druidic or priestly.

Percontatum - makes me think the Consortium are back, although I doubt this is the case seeing as it's Argus and everything.

Ovetigo - no clue other than that it resembles vertigo, which again is hard to associate with a race unless talking Arakkoa. Perhaps something related to the titans.

Sotanathor - the latter part sounds very much like a human name. But since it's Argus, this seems extremely unlikely.

Vilemus - This is the easiest one even without the title. I wouldn't have guessed a Pit Lord myself however. I'd have guessed it to be a Nathrezim like Varimathras; Regardless, definitely a demon under the Burning Legion.

 

So even though the predictions seem quite reasonable (To me at least) I'm sure I'm absolutely wrong on about half of them. But I only allowed myself to guess on the names and not the setting (Argus, Burning legion), which made it a bit harder. I have not seen any of the models (If they're available already) to make the guesswork more fair.

 

 

All in all though, there's so many names in WoW right now, I doubt they had any creativity left for names 8 years ago ;)

Aedis is a Vrykul, Zedaat is an Ethereal, Kena seems to be the sister of the fat Broken Shore imp lady (same model as Ana-Mouz), Alluradel is a succubus, Percontatum is a tormentor (VoTW 2nd boss), Ovetigo (Durumu).

I never expected Zedaat to be a Consortium dude, but I am surprised to see one on Argus! I was pretty much mistaken on all accounts it seems, with Sotanathor not linked to a model yet.

 

I wonder what the hell the Consortium is doing on Argus. *Even though we don't really know what they were up to in Outland either* one of the most mysterious races in the game right now for sure.

      Allied Races and the Pandaren will be finally able to become Death Knights in the near future, as Blizzard added creature textures together with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Darion Mograine in 8.3 Build 32151.
      It seems Bolvar is going to forge a new line of Death Knights in Patch 8.3. Death Knight textures for all Allied Races (Including Lightforged Draenei) have been added to the game along with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Highlord Darion Mograine, who's likely going to narrate the new Death Knight intro. There's also an encrypted map of an area, which is likely the one of Icecrown Citadel.

      Datamined Pandaren Male Death Knight Texture
      It seems there's going to be a brand new Death Knight intro, but at this time, we don't know if the Allied Races are going to start at level 20 or 55 and how that's going to affect Heritage Armor acquisition.

      In this week's 8.3 Build 32151, Wrathion's Legendary Cloak has been renamed and updated to have a higher base item level.
      Experimental Blacktalon Shroud is now called Ashjra'kamas, Shrould of Resolve and the base item level is up to 445.
      The cloak's effect (Blacktalon's Experimental Protection) reduces the Sanity loss from all sources by a percentage, which is mandatory for completing Horrific Visions, as your Sanity bar depletes and the reduction allows you to stay there longer and earn better rewards. You'll upgrade the item level of the cloak with Horrific Cores up to a maximum item level of 475 at Rank 15.
      Rank Item Level Reduces Sanity by % 1 445 5% 2 445 8% 3 445 10% 4 445 13% 5 455 25% 6 455 28% 7 455 30% 8 455 33% 9 455 35% 10 465 50% 11 465 53% 12 465 55% 13 465 58% 14 465 60% 15 475 75% You can check out our initial preview of the cloak here and we've updated the article to include the latest changes.

      At Ranks 5 and 10, the cloak gets an enhanced appearance that is added to your transmog tab.
