My impression is that if the Naaru eat anything at all, it's good emotion, and seeing as they exude good emotion, nothing is lost around them. If good emotion is energy, with little electrons of contentment and quarks of generosity, then the Naaru are pretty much perpetual-motion machines. Remember, K'ure in Osh'gun was injured in the Naaru crash, and drew the orc ancestors there. We've seen the void-state naaru consume souls of the dead, but those paths can be inturrupted, either by demonic magic, necromancy, or something else. In the case of the orcs, shamans would offer the purest water of their homes to the ancestors, which fed into the pool K'ure rested in. This sustained him, and the ancestors were there, in balance, and left un-consumed. They didn't start being consumed, or turning to the void themselves, until after Gul'dan sealed off Osh'gun, and spoke the cipher of damnation, severing the orcs from their mountain, and the elementals, thus, they were severed from the pure water they'd used. Without nourishment, the peaceful ancestors were slowly consumed by K'ure, and this process was encouraged by the legion when they gained direct control of Osh'gun. As far as I see it, the three void-state Naaru we've seen have fallen each time due to some catastrophic, or indeed cataclysmic, force, such as a crashing vessel, and have then entered a state of complete helplessness, until they're manipulated by another's control, whether the corrupted Anorchite's necromancy, the legion's fel-magic, or the blood-magic mixed with fel by the Sunstrider faction. The naaru may be manipulative, but they seem to be both relatively fragile and sorrowful of the sacrifices they must ask of the mortals who aid them. after all, we've seen only about a dozen naaru in the entire game, who's to say that's not their entire race, or perhaps what's left of it?
