World of Warcraft Orcs Explained

Aug 18, 2007
The fierce and savage, green-skinned orcs are one of the most prolific races of azeroth. They are commonly thought to be brutal and senseless, having no humanity or empathy for other races. From the muddy swamplands on the red world of draenor orcs were altered into frantic creatures with a taste for blood by a curse from the burning legion.

They attacked and invaded azeroth in the human year 583 with passage through the newly formed dark portal. Soon after they tried to take stormwind keep but failed and were repelled to their camp at the dark portal. This frustration sent them into chaos and leaders cho'gall of twilight's hammer and kilrogg deadeye of bleeding hollow blamed each other and the horde made loyalties with one or the other. Gul'dan, in an attempt to bring together the horde, appointed the merciless blackhand the destroyer of the blackrock clan warchief, although gul'dan maintained control through bribery and blackmail. A couple of orcs stood against gul'dan and his new order of the horde. The frostwolf clan and their leader durotan suspected gul'dan's purposes were corrupt and under demonic influence and he tried to persuade others of this. They failed to gain support and were cast out and settled down in the alterac mountains.

The orcs strengthened their position in azeroth, locating their stronghold, blackrock spire in the red ridge mountains. Gradually the horde was winning more engagements against the humans. They took grand hamlet. They eventually drove the humans out of azeroth, across the great sea and to lordaeron. Six years later they followed the humans to their new home and alliance allies. They recruited the trolls of lordaeron, goblins and ogres of draenor and together they tried to take control of lordaeron.

With the help of reconnaissance information from lord perenolde the horde were able to also take much of qule'thalas but were slowly pushed all the way back to azeroth by the alliance forces. The alliance finally conquered the horde, taking control of blackrock spire and the dark portal and placed the remaining Orcs in camps. Only kilrog deadeye's bleeding hollow clan survived and fled to khaz modan.

Led by the young warchief, thrall, the orcs have reclaimed their strength and honor. Now, the orcs stand ready to fight not for the sake of conquest, but for their right to survive in their adopted world.

Under the horde's factions the orcs are still one of the best races in world of warcraft being able to go into 5 classes: hunter, warlock, shaman, rogue and warrior. starting out in durotar and a home city in ogrimmar, orcs can mount wolves and wyverns.

Their Racial traits are the following:

Blood Fury - Activate to increase strength by 25%. Lose 5% health every 3 seconds. Lasts 20 seconds. 2 minute cool down.

Hardiness - 25% resistance to stun and knockout effects.

Command - Pet melee damage increased by 5%.
