Watchers (also known as keepers, and in rare cases Titanic Watchers or sentinels) are mysterious gigantic humanoids who are creations of the titans, and are not true titans. They appear to have been tasked with watching the creations of the titans on Azeroth long ago.
The terms were at first primarily used as a prefix or title for the six main guardians around Ulduar, but other things have since used the terms. Things classified as stone keepers and stone watchers seem to have been renamed watchers and keepers, and the terms made synonymous. There are vast differences in power between entities with these titles.
List of Watchers
- On this wiki, the fan-coined term "titanic watcher" is often used as the race name, despite being used only once in-game, and after it was (mis)used on Wowpedia first.
- Some watchers seem to be mindless automatons, while others are more complex individuals. Whether this is due to the Curse of Flesh, intentional differences in programming, or both is unknown.
- Anubisath may be related to these beings. They bare a strong resemblance to Setesh, though it is possible this is simply because both are based visually on the Egyptian god Anubis. The Sun-Touched Speaker is a servant of the guardians of Uldum.
