Immortals

"Mortis. Lumen. Ordus. Rhythm and structure.
Vitae. Umbra. Tumult. Improvisation and possibility.

Immortal beings in Warcraft (sometimes called Eternals) tend to be associated with one of the magic forces of the universe, of which there are eight. The most basic form of magic, tethered in the physical world, is elemental magic, which itself is split into six kinds: Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Spirit and Decay. Above it are the six cosmic forces, which are divided into three pairs of opposites: Light and Void, Order and Chaos, and Life and Death. Finally, above the cosmic forces is the enigmatic fractal magic of the First Ones, which rarely features in the game directly.

Each form of magic has its own associated deitiesnote  and magical creatures. Most are unable to die of old age, and, when killed, their souls travel to their home plane; only by destroying them within that plane can they be truly gone for good.

The six primary kinds of Eternals are:

  • Light: The cosmic force of creation and protection, it is the source of all life, but can also lead one to fanaticism or stagnation. It is the source of holy magic, used by priests, paladins, and, to a lesser extent, druids, and its patron deities are the benevolent naaru.note 
  • Void: The cosmic force of oblivion and madness that seeks to devour all of existence, but which also is responsible for the free will of mortals and allows one to see different paths and possibilities. It is the source of shadow magic, used by priests, warlocks and rogues, and its patron deities are the enigmatic Void Lords, and their incarnate manifestations, the Old Gods.note 
  • Death: The cosmic force of the infinite plane known as the Shadowlands, where the souls of dead mortals reside. It is the source of necromanic magic, used by death knights, and its patron deities are the Eternal Ones, who judge the dead and give them new purpose in the afterlives.note 
  • Life: The cosmic force of renewal and growth, associated with the verdant realm known as the Emerald Dream. It is the source of nature magic, used by druids, monks, and, to a lesser extent, hunters, and its patron deities are the Wild Gods, gargantuan divine animals.note 
  • Order: The cold, intellectual cosmic force that is the source of arcane magic, used by mages, evokers, and, to a lesser extent, druids. Its patron deities are the Titans, astral beings who once seeded Azeroth with life and created, directly or indirectly, most of its mortal races.note 
  • Disorder: The chaotic, destructive cosmic force of the Twisting Nether, the domain of demons, and the source of Fel magic, used by warlocks and demon hunters. Its sole patron deity is the fallen titan Sargeras, master of the Burning Legion - a demonic army that seeks to destroy all creation.note 

There are also:

  • The Dragonflights: Incarnate elementals which were then blessed by the Titans to guard Azeroth, thus being creatures of both Order and the Elements, as well as their brethren who refused this blessing and remained purely elemental beings.note 
  • Other Eternals: The Elemental Lords, deities of elemental magic, as well as other immortals whose origins are either unknown or mixed.note
