Question Wild Gods - Who is one?

Are Kodian and Orsonn, who seem to be immortal like their father, Wild Gods?

Is Loque'nahak, mate of Har'koa, a Wild God?

Are Hati and Skoll, lightning hounds of Thorim, Wild Gods?

Are Mahamba, Tsul'kalu and Pogeyan Wild Gods?

Are ascended Loa, like Zanza, Wild Gods?

Is Karoma, the Wolf Spirit, a Wild God?

Are Aku'mai and Ghaz'rilla Wild Gods?

Are Volcanoth and Terrorpene Wild Gods?

What about spirits, like wisps and the other spirit beasts? Are they a form of spirit-element based undead? Can they turn into minor Wild Gods, like the trolls believe?

If Malorne's kid Cenarius counts as one I would think Kodian and Orsonn do, but on the other hand the Keepers and Dryads don't.

I don't think Loa who used to be Trolls, like Sen'jin and Zanza, are Wild Gods.

There is that Kraken in Dragonblight who wonders if you are going to kill her like the Drakkari want to, so she probably is.

WHAT are Wild Gods?

Titans are sapient planets and Old Gods seem to be Titan-Cancer. Do we know what the deal is with demons and Wild Gods yet? Where they come from, where they're going?

Demons are anything that contains too much fel. What if Wild Gods are the same? The trolls would be right, then. On the other hand, spirit is just the elemet they use and not Wild God magic... How does one contain too much nature?

Wolfheart says

The dragons had been empowered by the titans, but Azeroth itself gave rise to the spirits and demigods, creatures eternal in nature yet capable of ultimate sacrifice.[1]


And Draenor has Rukhmar, Anzu, and Sethe. So they just pop up out of Nature on worlds.

So what does that make them? Antibodies? Parasites? Symbiotes?

Were there wisps before the Sundering? Or did they only appear after the expansion of druidism and the task given to the night elves of protecting Nordrassil by the Aspects?

I would like to believe that the Ancients (trees), Ancient Guardians, animal Loa and all that are Wild Gods while the minor Loa (ascended trolls) and wisps are spirits aligned to Death and not Life. Interwined of course.

People who I don't think are Wild Gods are the Great Bear Spirit and Great Cat Spirit in Moonglade, and the three stag/saber/bear spirits in Darkshore questing. Granted I mostly attribute that to them not actually having names.

Not exclusively. Trolls are organic! And Goblins, assuming they aren't OG/Troll related.

I'm not sure I have my chronology straight. In what order did Titans, Old Gods and Trolls occur on Azeroth?

As of now it is Elementals->Old Gods->Faceless and Aqir->Titans->Titan creations->Trolls

The Curse of Flesh didn't hit until 15k years ago, going by the Howling Fjord Vrykul quests.

Hadn't it already changed the vrykul before that? They went trhough two stages, unlike the other races, after all.

Oh right, I forgot we have stone Vrykul now.

Well Chronicle will probably give us a time frame for that, I'd imagine.

Would the Aspects be considered artificial Wild Gods?

Is Galakrond a Necrotic God? Was he filled with the decay element?

Well only Ysera and maybe Alex fall under the Nature sphere.

I imagine Wild Gods are the true "gods" of the worlds. Azeroth itself (and Draenor) gave birth to them and they are immortal. When defeated they return to the Dream. (which I think is something that every world has but in Azeroth was given a new purpose by the Titans).


My list of Wild Gods of Azeroth:

Agamaggan
Aessina
Ashamane
Aviana
Cenarius
Goldrinn "Lo'Gosh"
Malorne "Apa'ro"
Omen
Tortolla
Ursoc
Ursol
L'ghorek
Nespirah
Niuzao
Chi-Ji
Xuen
Yu'lon
Nalorakk
Akil'zon
Jan'alai
Halazzi
Mahamba
Tsul'Kalu
Pogeyan
Bwonsamdi
Samedi
Shango
Shirvallah
Hir'eek
Elortha no Shadra
Sseratus
Har'koa
Rhunok
Quetz'lun
Mam'toth
Akali
Hakkar
Bethekk
Hir'eek
Hethiss
Shirvallah
Eraka no Kimbul
Ueetay no Mueh'zala
Akil'darah
Zanza
Gonk
Grimath
G'nathus
Ula-Tek
Al'ar?
Kros?
Mazu?
Issliruk
Karkut
Oacha'noa
Tayutka
Gahz'rilla
Ozumat?

However, since they are after all gods and can change their forms I suppose many of those (especially loas given their names in different tribes and regions) are actually the same.

My list of Wild Gods of Draenor:

Anzu
Rukhmar
Sethe
Ka'alu?

Dunno, being Thorim's dog and being a creature of lighting kinda makes her seem important.
