Telogrus Rift is the fragmented remains of an ancient,[2] Void-infested world that was destroyed long ago by a powerful being, killing the "great ones" that inhabited it.[3]

The destruction scarred space-time itself, and left fragments of the shattered world teetering on the brink of the Void, inside a rift in the very fabric of reality known as Telogrus Rift.[4] This is where the void elves have taken residence, but unchecked Void energies ravage the floating islands, forming a growing Voidstorm that might one day even consume the landmass entirely.[5]


The first Azerothian to discover the existence of Telogrus Rift was the high elf necromancer Dar'Khan Drathir through his studies of the Void, believing the rift held an ancient object of unspeakable might.[1][6] Despite his extensive research, however, Drathir was never able to access the shattered world.

Around the end of the Argus Campaign, a group of blood elf exiles, banished from Quel'Thalas for their Void experiments and led by Magister Umbric, succeeded in reaching Telogrus Rift after finding the work done by Dar'Khan Drathir. They entered the world in search of the powerful item that eluded Drathir and hoped to use it to harness the powers of the Void. There, joined by the legendary Alleria Windrunner and her ally, the elves began trying to open an unspeakably ancient and mysterious cube they discovered in the area. Doing so, however, opened the way for Nether-Prince Durzaan, who overwhelmed those gathered and began a ritual to transform them into servants of the Void.[7]

Alleria and her ally, however, managed to defeat Durzaan and his forces, including the Void monstrosity Nhr'ghesh, and free Umbric and the other elves. Though Durzaan's ritual was not completed, the process had permanently changed Umbric's blood elves, turning them into void elves. In the aftermath of these events, these "ren'dorei" decided to make Telogrus Rift their new base of operations, and pledged their loyalty to the Alliance through Alleria. She remained on Telogrus to teach her kin how to use and control their newfound powers.

Many void elves, as well as individuals from Azeroth,[8] conduct research and studies in Telogrus Rift, with a focus on better understanding and harnessing the powers of the Void.[9]

Following the war against the Primalists, Telogrus Rift came under attack by Xal'atath and her forces. It was defended by Alleria, the Riftwalkers, and the adventurers.[10]



Telogrus Rift.

Little to nothing is known of Telogrus or its geography prior to its destruction.

Currently, the Telogrus Rift consists of six major islands suspended in space, with numerous other fragments floating in the immediate area. The landscape is rocky, and is almost devoid of life apart from the void elves themselves, though a breed of warp stalker known as the voidstalker does appear to inhabit the area; the void elves have since succeeded in taming these animals, turning them into pets. The land itself is largely soaked in void energies that can often be seen emanating from the surface of the planet.

Notes and trivia

  • A void-corrupted planet can be seen in the sky surrounding Telogrus.
  • On the Fathom's Edge southern area, there is a hole in a rock that allows access under the upper layer of the ground.
  • Just like Argus, Telogrus Rift is considered an area of the Broken Isles on the Map interface instead of being in the Cosmic map.


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Based on Nether-Prince Durzaan describing Telogrus Rift as a place echoing with "the whispers of the great ones who were slain... and the hatred of he who broke this world", and Locus-Walker confirming it is a "very old place" and "broken by rage, yet sculpted by the threads of fate", it is speculated that Telogrus was likely to have been the Void-corrupted planet destroyed by the titan Sargeras to prevent the Old Gods present from turning the local world-soul into a dark titan.
