Dredgers (also called muckborn)[1] are humanoid beings native to Revendreth in the Shadowlands.

They are made from mud, being born from underground pits. They keep attempting to rebuild Revendreth's dilapidated infrastructures and constructions, but it is a losing battle considering the anima drought.[2] The ideal dredger is absolutely subservient and works "out of sight, out of mind". It is considered distasteful for dredgers to seek appreciation for their work.[3]

Despite often having no choice in who they serve, dredgers have their own independent thoughts and opinions. If treated badly they will dislike and resent the offender, even if they cannot physically act against it. They refer to venthyr as 'fangs', but not those of whom they're friendly with. Nadjia the Mistblade is a notable venthyr that befriended dredgers alongside stonebound, leading some to state that a friend of hers is a friend to them as well.[4] All in all, dredgers are often not respected, but when given respect will gladly return it in kind.

They can be reshaped into bigguns that are created from multiple dredgers using a  [Gem of Binding].[5][6]

All dredgers are made from muck pools using filth and fiber through an alchemic process[7], which are found in the Dredgewood[8] and Muck Pool: Banewood. It seems the Blistering Bog was once a muck pool.[9] When muck pools go untreated due to lack of filthy rubble, they begin to generate elementals.[8]

The adventurer of the Venthyr Covenant can customize their dredger butler.[10]

  • The earliest concept art for what would later become dredgers envisioned them as "grave robbers" who would steal souls for the Shadowlands from mortal realms.[11]
