Default Zandalar runemasters?

http://www.wowhead.com/npc=52962

Zandalari Archon's seem to runemasters. If I am correct this is the first time I have heard of them within their ranks. Then again being the scholars they are it is not unusual for them to have learnt it over the years.

Anyone think their is anything significant about this?

They definitely seem similar, but, well, they don't really use runes, now do they? I'd imagine sigils are the term used for individual characters in the Zandali language, so it depends on whether or not a runemaster must literally use characters from a runic alphabet or not. Otherwise I guess they're just martial scribes.

"Archon" is a Greek word meaning "Ruler" or "Lord."

This doesn't help much. I'm just throwing that out there.

They put a variety of elemental sigils on you that they can then "shatter" for burst damage. Fire, frost and shadow, so it seems they're some kind of arcane spellcaster.
