Yoy and Oyo are unclear concepts, known only from a few mentions by Mangix, the Brewmaster minimap icon.png Brewmaster. The Order of the Oyo is devoted to Oyo, although what exactly Oyo is remains unknown.[1]


  • Yoy and Oyo may refer to places or people. This is supported by the fact that the Brewmaster believes his Oyo ancestors strengthen his physical staff attacks,[2] while his Yoy ancestors strengthen his magical abilities.[1][3]
  • Yoy and Oyo may refer to two contrasting cosmic forces. Mangix hints that Yoy and Oyo returns him to life,[4] and that the two forces are contrary to one another.[5] This interpretation is similar to the Chinese concept of yin and yang, and also fits with references to Yoy and Oyo ancestors, where Yoy (yin) and Oyo (yang) could signify female and male ancestors respectively. The Brewmaster also values balance,[6] an important concept in Chinese dualism.
