Huskar minimap icon.png Huskar, the Sacred Warrior
Emerging from the throes of the sacred Nothl Realm, Huskar opened his eyes to see the prodigal shadow priest Dazzle working a deep incantation over him. Against the ancient rites of the Dezun Order, Huskar's spirit had been saved from eternity, but like all who encounter the Nothl he found himself irrevocably changed. No longer at the mercy of a mortal body, his very lifeblood became a source of incredible power; every drop spilled was returned tenfold with a fierce, burning energy. However this newfound gift infuriated Huskar, for in his rescue from the Nothl, Dazzle had denied him a place among the gods. He had been denied his own holy sacrifice.

In time the elders of the order sought to expand their influence and Huskar, they agreed, would be a formidable tool in their campaign. Yet becoming a mere weapon for the order that denied him his birthright only upset him further. As the first embers of war appeared on the horizon, he fled his ancestral home to find new allies, all the while seeking a cause worthy of unleashing the power his total sacrifice could bring.

Huskar is a sacred warrior, transformed from his harrowing experience in the Nothl Realm. Huskar values vitality above all, and shares respect for heroes who do the same, such as Bloodseeker minimap icon.png Bloodseeker[1] and Witch Doctor minimap icon.png Witch Doctor.[2] He likens life to a holy chalice, spilled when a being dies.[3]

  • When Huskar returned from the Nothl realm, he came back with secrets that none of his tribal elders recognized. He now uses these secrets to further his own interests.[4]
  • According to Huskar, dependence on mana is considered unholy, showing a preference for raw lifeforce instead.[5] This is in line with his culture's custom of sacrificing people to the Nothl Realm.
  • Like Dazzle, Huskar belongs to the Dezun Order, where he serves as a warrior.[6]
  • Jah'rakal despises Huskar, because he reminds him of himself.[7]

Huskar's people[]

Huskar's people appears to be based on the indigenous peoples of the New World. Deeply spiritual, they shun technology in favor of implements made from sacrificial bones, and sharpened stone, such as obsidian.


Coming from similar backgrounds, Huskar considers Dazzle minimap icon.png Dazzle a cousin.[8] Despite this, he resents him for bringing him back from the Nothl Realm.[9]
