5. Hakkar, the Soulflayer

This cult is no joke when trying to resurrect their god.

Hakkar the Soulflayer, the Blood God, is a malevolent and destructive enemy notably worshipped by the Gurubashi trolls. He is the final boss of the Zul'Gurub raid. He is summoned with a gory blood ritual and let me tell you that if this incredible piece of art doesn’t represent this ritual well enough, I don’t know what will.

6. Shadowlands

The sky broke and a mirrored tower appeared.

Sylvanas Windrunner broke the world of Azeroth ripping the sky to the shadowlands by breaking the Lich King’s helmet. This official image from Blizzard is just perfect. Having the two towers mirrored, and the sky ripped is warning enough that things are not going to be the same.

7. Teldrassil

This was a magical place before Sylvanas burned it.

Teldrassil is the beautiful world tree situated on the eponymous island off Kalimdor’s northwest coast. If you’re more into landscapes, this is the perfect wallpaper to feel the magic of the world with the beautiful pink sunset and gigantic trees, not to mention the fantastic lore the game has with its races and creatures around.

8. Deathwing

Deathwing's portrait is just perfect to reflect the cataclysm.

This dragon named Deathwing, the aspect of death, brought the cataclysm to the world. The heroes of Azeroth joined to fight and defeat him before more destruction is brought to Azeroth. Deathwing was once called Neltharion, the earth-warder, before becoming mad by the old gods’ whispers. This incredible official wallpaper portrays the corrupted dragon.

This couple has a love story better than Titanic.

Malfurion and Elune are a powerful couple, and we don’t see them very often together in cinematics or having romantic gestures to represent their love. But this wallpaper came to save the day and deliver a beautiful romantic scene between these beloved characters sharing a unique moment.

10. The Lich King

Lich King's favorite color must be blue.

Lich King became a threat to Azeroth with the powerful sword known as Frostmourne. In the game, you can play as a Death Knight in any faction, a new breed created to serve the Frozen King. Arthas did not discriminate when raising those who fell against him, almost any race can be one of the scourge. This wallpaper is a vivid image of the leader and incredible character Arthas Menethil.

Guldan is a very powerful warlock.

Another incredible villain of the franchise is the mighty Gul’dan. He became the first orcish warlock as well as the founder of the Orcish Horde. He brought terror to Azeroth and was always a threat to anyone who defied him. This artist made this hallucinating wallpaper where we can admire the evilness Gul’dan has.

Illidan can train players to be demon hunters and join his cause.

Illidan has been a favorite character for a lot of users. After having participated in a lot of stories as an enemy, he united with the heroes of Azeroth to destroy the Burning Legion, a threat to the universe. What a perfect way to have Illidan as a wallpaper that fights the legion and is ready to exterminate all.

Who would have thought she had a warm heart as a night-elf before her transformation.

This beautiful Queen rules the underwater city of Nazjatar. Once a night-elf, she forged a pact with an Old God and saved the Highborne from drowning by transforming them into the serpentine naga, a price they would pay by becoming the Old God servants. If you haven’t seen the video telling her story, then you should look for it and download this beautiful wallpaper freezing the best moment of it.

The Old Gods are gigantic and waiting to be freed once more to attack.
