and made their way to the Temple of Atal'Hakkar, where they threw themselves on the Atal'ai's mercy.

Together, the Hakkari and the Atal'ai continued to try and bring Hakkar into Azeroth. Ysera learned of their plans, however, and buried the Temple of Atal'Hakkar beneath the swamp. (More information on the Atal'ai organization appears in Chapter 7: The Factions).

Witch doctors who worship Hakkar also exist. These witch doctors lead the sacrificial ceremonies to provide Hakkar with the blood he requires.

Sacrifices to Hakkar require much preparation and ritual on the part of the participants. The Atal'ai and Hakkari spend hours dancing and chanting praises to Hakkar. Ritual self-mutilation plays a large part in their ceremonies, and most followers of Hakkar display ugly scars on their limbs and faces.

The faithful whip themselves into a frenzy of dancing and singing
