Background EditThis section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft RPG, and thus unlikely to be canon.
The Celestial Orb of Souls was crafted by the titans as gifts to their favored creations and has the ability to channel the powers of the light in order bring back to life those who have recently fallen.
This crystalline ball, about 6 inches in diameter, glows and swirls with ghostly shapes. Although it appears to be made of ordinary glass, the "celestial orb" is virtually indestructible. The device's unassuming appearance hides a tremendous power. The orb captures the fleeing soul of any creature slain within 60 feet of its owner. These souls remain within the murky demesne of the orb for 1 minute before escaping and moving on to their reward. During that period, the orb's owner may, with a single word, bring that creature back to life.
