"Is Vezax himself a transformed entity, changed into a walking monstrosity by exposure to the elder god's blood, tainted and twisted by saronite?"Not many people seem to know this (I didn't until a few months ago, because only the Alliance has a quest mentioning him) but there is supposed to be a fifth Watcher in Storm Peaks: Tyr. Now, that Alliance quest sends you to check the status of the Watchers' temples (except for Thorim's). Naturally, they're all empty as the Watchers have all been captured by then (again, except for Thorim.. following the timeline). Tyr's, however, is the only one that shows no signs of struggle. Inside Ulduar, there are no signs of Tyr and no indication to where he would've resided (as every Watcher had both a Temple outside and some sort of room or halls inside Ulduar itself). One explanation for this is that Tyr simply foresaw Yogg-Saron overpowering his fellow Watchers and fled. If not, then he too was corrupted (perhaps willingly, as his temple shows no sign of struggling as all the others do) and turned into Vezax.There's a bunch of theories about it at http://www.wowhead.com/?forums&topic=119240

Wow, that's quite fascinating to dwell upon, thanks for the link!

Actually, Valnoth has confirmed in the official forum that Tyr is General Vezax, and Vezax' chamber is Tyr's original sanctum. Of course now I have to find the link for that :)

If you follow the Wowhead link, there's a link to the official forums where Valnoth does hint towards it, but it's not a confirmation. He could be messing with us for all we know, and Blizzard won't suddenly reveal the origin of a random boss in an old instance, so we'll never know for sure if Vezax was intended to be Tyr or not.
