Hi! I’m trying to learn more about the specifics of WoW lore that have to do with Shadowlands, and I have a stumping question I need help with. As a WoW player, when my character dies, my ghost pops up in a graveyard next to some kind of angel/spirit guide (if there’s any lore about those people, please let me know). As you all know, I run back to my corpse and my spirit and body reunite. Why does that not happen to the mobs that I kill? How can characters die, like Cairne bloodhoof, Vol’Jin, etc, finally die instead of just getting rezzed, or running back to their corpses?
I’m especially interested in how this applied to Shadowlands, since, as far as I know, the Shadowland is the next plane of existence after death. Why haven;t our characters gone to Shadowlands after we’ve been killed? Is there even a lore-friendly answer to this?? lol WoW metaphysical philosophy
