NotesEdit

  • It is quite possible that the language is not original to the faceless ones, but rather the Old Gods, or just Yogg-Saron himself, as during the encounter in Ulduar, he roars two lines which follow the same language pattern.

TriviaEdit

  • The language bears a resemblance to, and is no doubt inspired by, R'lyehian - the language of the Great Old Ones in H. P. Lovecraft's "The Call of Cthulhu".
