World of Warcraft’s Shadowlands expansion will culminate in the upcoming patch 9.2, where players will take on the Jailer as he seeks to put an end to all creation. Blizzard describes 9.2 as the end of the Warcraft story.
One of those loose ends includes who is to become the Arbiter, the deity-like being responsible for sorting the various souls that flow into the different afterlives of the Shadowlands. Recent datamining shows that the answer is more than just a few players.

Potential Spoilers For Shadowlands Patch 9.2 Ahead
According to datamined dialogue and NPCs from the patch 9.2 public-test-realm via Wowhead, the minor NPC Pelagos will step up to become the Arbiter just before players journey into the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid to confront the Jailer. Datamined dialogue shows Pelagos speaking about the ability to direct souls and finding his way. Kleia, his companion, is shocked by this news.
Several datamined NPC IDs also mention “Arbiter Pelagos.” Arbiter Pelagos does not currently have any textures or models in this build of PTR. This is likely due to Blizzard hiding the model to prevent spoilers. Although there is always the possibility that some datamined information was misdirected by Blizzard, it seems clear that Pelagos will become the Arbiter.
So who is Pelagos? This is the question that more WoW players have been asking. He is a minor character and appears only in the Kyrian Covenant storyline. This means that many WoW players who chose one of the other Covenants have rarely interacted with him, except for a few moments when they were leveling up the Kyrian zone at Bastion. He can also be a soulbind character to players who choose to join the Kyrian Covenant. This means that he serves as an additional talent tree which players can invest points in.
His sudden promotion to the supreme being of the Shadowlands has more than a few players on the game’s subreddit comparing Pelagos becoming the Arbiter to (SPOILERS) Bran becoming the King of Westeros in the widely panned finale of Game of Thrones.
Patch 9.2 does not currently have a release date. The patch will include class-based Tier sets, new zones, raids, and other features. The patch will release as Blizzard continues to deal with the fallout from multiple lawsuits and investigations related to allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination at Activision Blizzard.
