Envoys are shepherds of the souls of the dead. When a mortal dies, an envoy will appear before the newly released soul to guide them into the Mists. All envoys were once wicked criminals in life, forced by the Oracle of the Mists to serve as soul shepherds as penance for their mortal crimes. Envoys appear to possess tremendous power, including the ability to control souls and influence the dead.
There are five known envoys that were explicitly named (although one is no longer an envoy):
- Typing "/guild", "/ladder", or "/champion" in chat will trigger an emote that causes various Envoys to appear based on guild ladder ranking.
