For the Shadow priest mastery, see Shadow Orbs.

The Shadow Orb was a magical artifact created by the Orc Shadow Council of Gul'dan. Its ten pieces were found and pieced back together by Maiev Shadowsong in the Tomb of Sargeras in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne expansion Night Elf Campaign.

One of its little known properties is that it will drive the bearer to pursue a goal to the point of madness. In the case of Gul'dan, he was driven to madness to obtain the Eye of Sargeras. In Maiev's case, she was driven to recapture Illidan at any cost.[1]

As Gul'dan was torn apart by the tomb's guardians, this special artifact was shattered into ten fragments that landed in different places in the tomb.

The whereabouts of the Shadow Orb are currently unknown.[2][3]
