Warlords of Draenor Raid Preview: Blackrock Foundry

Blackrock Foundry was the ancestral home of the Blackrock orcs, wherein master smiths smelted and worked the impossibly hard ore that is the clan’s namesake. Now, massive giants captured and broken by the Thunderlord heat the great forges, flamebenders of the Burning Blade imbue the ore with an inner fire, and engineers shape the slag according to otherworldly schematics. Warlord Blackhand’s foundry is the center of the Iron Horde’s military might, churning out the weaponry that will be used to raze Azeroth.

Onslaught’s End

Missive: “Guard Gul’dan and his Shadow Council with your lives! The portal cannot function without our prisoners’ fel magic. Fail me and watch all that you hold dear turn to ash.

–Grommash Hellscream.”

The Iron Horde appear to be holding prisoners that are crucial to keeping the portal open. Search the nearby spires!

Onslaught's End

Azeroth’s Last Stand

Khadgar: Countless times you have battled against impossible odds and unspeakable evil – and returned the victor. Now, once more, you have answered the call of duty, prepared to risk your life to save the world that you love – our world.

You are Azeroth’s last hope, (name).

While the challenges that stand before us are daunting, there is no other that I would trust to lead this mission.

The enemy at the front may have the information we need to win this war. Seek and destroy!

Go now, (name)! For Azeroth!

Azeroth's Last Stand

Warning the Warchief

Thrall: We have slowed the Iron Horde down, but this war is far from over… I’ll stay here and continue our efforts to hold back the Iron Horde.

The Warchief needs to know about what we have accomplished here today, and the threat we face in the future.

It is probably best if you report to the Warchief yourself, (class).

Warning the Warchief

Quest Objectives

Speak with Warchief Vol’jin.



Vol’jin: This is more trouble than I first tink. Da Iron Horde be strong, but we are da true Horde, and we be stronger.

I fear this is da start of much bloodshed, before we go ta war, we be needin’ a plan.

Warning the Warchief – Tips

Take that finger off the Hearthstone. Don’t waste your hearthstone cooldown. Fly back to the Shattered Landing (the eastern beach of Blasted Lands). There is a portal to Orgrimmar there, a few steps away from Rokhan, by a grouping of rocks.

Iron Horde Invasion Storyline


Gar’mak Bladetwist

Thrall: With the intelligence you have gathered we have learned this assault is being led by a powerful Iron Horde orc named Gar’mak Bladetwist. He is hunkered down inside Okril’lon Hold.

Killing him will not win this war, but it will surely break down the Iron Horde’s communication. This will buy us valuable time while we gather more forces and outline a battleplan to deal with this new threat.

Gar'mak Bladetwist

Death to the Dreadmaul

Thrall: The stupidity of the Dreadmaul ogres never ceases to amaze me. The Iron Horde is clearly using them to further their own nefarious agenda.

Regardless, we must show the ogres what happens when you confront the true Horde. I think it’s time we send the Dreadmaul ogres a message.

Death to the Dreadmaul

Toothsmash the Annihilator

Thrall: If the battleplans you brought back are true, the Dreadmaul ogres are as much to blame for this devastation as the Iron Horde. It’s time we send those ogres a message.

It looks like the Iron Horde’s main contact is a large ogre in Dreadmaul named Toothsmash. Killing him will put a dent in their battleplans.

Toothsmash the Annihilator

Okrilla’s Revenge

Okrilla: The Dreadmaul ogres think they have bested us? They will all suffer. Here take this poison, place a couple drops in their rat stew.

The poison will slowly eat away at their insides. Causing a prolonged and painful death, just like they deserve.
