Murky, the Baby Murloc, is a melee specialist hero from the Warcraft universe.[1][2][3]

Murky slimes enemies and spits out Pufferfish. Can revive from his Egg.[4]

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

The origins and history of the murloc race are shrouded in mystery. A large part of this is because their lore is passed down via their own oral tradition, which is almost incomprehensible to most other sentient races, but also because murlocs generally have very little tolerance for other races. Murlocs often congregate in heavily populated coastal settlements, and are more than willing to assist each other when threatened. While many have debated on their intelligence, there is reason to believe that their use of weaponry and uncanny fighting abilities may actually imply that they possess a rather sinister racial intellect.

Like the enigmatic origins of the murloc race, Murky's past is also veiled in a variety unanswered questions. Who is he? Where does he come from? He dies again and again, and yet each time, returns to life from his egg. Stranger yet, when he emerges, he looks and sounds precisely the same. Does he possess unspeakable powers? Could he be immortal?

The world may never know.

Development[edit | edit source]

According to Game Designer Kent-Erik Hagman the development of Murky revolved around the idea of Murlocs beeing a persistent, annoying force that just die a lot. Credit for the core idea does belong to Dustin Browder. The developers had been spinning their wheels for a while trying to come up with a cool hook for Murky when Dustin Browder suggested to try the "cartoon character" Murloc, for whom death doesn't mean anything. They decided the most straightforward approach would be for the Murky player to pick the respawn spot. They wanted to offer the most freedom for their players, and after talking with the art team, they gave them the idea of a Murloc Egg or Nest that Murky could respawn from. From there, it was just a lot of playtesting and reworking the numbers to get the egg to feel exciting and fun.[5]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Murlocs first appeared in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (2002). A Murky pet was added to World of Warcraft in 2005, and Murky appears in World of Warcraft: Legion (2016).
  • Murky is voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.
  • Murky was one of the four heroes revealed at PAX East 2014.[6]
  • No one in the game can understand what Murky is saying, because murlocs do not speak much.
  • Murky originally lived in the coast of Feralas in Traveler (October 2016).
