The Argus Wake are a mysterious group of the Shadow Council allied with the Alterac Syndicate in the Alterac Mountains. Primarily, they are classified as a "sect" of the Syndicate (however having differing agendas and priorities at times) and mainly focus on teaching Shadow Magic. While Strahnbrad and Stromgarde Keep functioned as bases of operations, the Argus Magi have been seen within both spheres and witnessed as conducting their own activities outside the spheres.

Their forces in Alterac were led by an orc named Nagaz from a foothold in Dandred's Fold, who was later killed by a Warlock adventurer during the Third Invasion of the Burning Legion. Their true leader remains a mystery, operating from the shadows with encrypted missives and letters to lead the sect from a distance.

They are known to distribute parasitic Bloodstones to the members of the Syndicate in the form of amulets and orbs. By feeding the powerful stones blood, the Syndicate could use them in summoning rituals to bring demons under their will.
