Spirit healers decide when it's time for a mortal soul to pass into the Shadowlands. When a mortal dies and their soul crosses the veil between life and death, it is shepherded by the kyrian to Oribos so that they can be judged by the impassive Arbiter. All of the soul's contents—deeds, misdeeds, thoughts, accomplishments, and failures—are instantly laid bare before the Arbiter, who then judges in a mere instant and sends the soul off to one of the infinite realms of the Shadowlands, each of which is ruled over by a powerful Covenant. The Covenants are ancient and powerful orders who have existed since the Shadowlands were shaped long ago, and who bear sacred duties to help maintain the afterlife's ecosystem. Not every soul is filtered into the main four Covenants. Each soul brings with it a vital force known as anima, the product of all of the soul's experiences and actions in life. Anima is the lifeblood of the Shadowlands, making trees grow and rivers flow and is the source that'...
Keeper Odyn used knowledge he gleaned from the Shadowlands to create the first Val'kyr, Helya and tasked her with bringing the souls of worthy vrykul to the Halls of Valor.

World of Warcraft
In World of Warcraft, the Shadowlands can be seen when a character dies. They can be resurrected by a Spirit Healer (or by finding the corpseof their physical body, though this may be just a game mechanic). The Shadowlands can also be witnessed by other means, such as with some specific [Reagent Pouch]. It can also be seen with some devices and potionswhile being alive. Many not-dead mortals who visit the Shadowlands do not return.

Beings of death are ancient and powerful, and it is dangerous to meddle in their realm. When Odyn peered into the Shadowlands, he saw some of its inhabitants: souls in torment, the husks of the dead, ghostly wraiths with no face, and others with no form, all made of death itself. This was enough to frighten even him. Several races in the Shadowlands, such as the kyrian of Bastion, are souls of deceased mortals who have been transformed to serve a new purpose. If one of these former mortals is killed in the Shadowlands, they die permanently. Other creatures—such as dredgers and stewards—are endemic to the Shadowlands and are naturally born from the magic of death to serve the different realms and help facilitate the process of the afterlife. If one such creature of death is killed, their energy is recycled back into the Shadowlands, and eventually another member of the same race will manifest to take the place of the one that was killed. Endemic creatures of death 1. Dredger 1.1. Big...
In some situations, souls may be taken to other places besides the Shadowlands: 1. Souls can be sent to the Light, such as Uuna's parents or Crusader Bridenbrad.

The spirits of green dragons, most Wild Gods, and some druids such as Elerethe Renferal and Thaon Moonclaw, can go to the Emerald Dream, as well as all animals. 2.1. The spirits of winged creatures, including dragons, tend to be sent to G'Hanir, within the Dream. 2.2. Ardenweald, though, has been revealed to be integral to the Emerald Dream. 3. Vrykul warriors who prove their valor to Odyn can be taken by his val'kyr to the Halls of Valor. 3.1. Helya steals vrykul souls and bring them to Helheiminstead. 4. Elementals and demons respectively return to the Elemental Plane and Twisting Netherupon death, where they are then reborn. Dying in these planes kills them permanently. With elementals, however, it's known that th...
The final destination of the spirits of the deceased remains a mystery to the priests and philosophers of Azeroth. However, as spells such as [Resurrection] can reunite a dead body with its spirit, and a majority of living creatures from the tauren to the troll shadow hunters claim they can communicate with and call upon the power of the spirits, a widely held belief is that the spirits of the dead remain on the Material Plane— in an immaterial state that can only be altered or contacted thro...
