OrgrimmarFounded by Thrall, this Horde capital city is home to many of the proud orc clans of Durotar. Orgrimmar is the faction for the capital city Orgrimmar of the orcs and trolls of the Darkspear Trolls. Found at the northern edge of Durotar, the imposing city is home to the orcish Warchief, Thrall.
HistoryThrall led the orcs to the continent of Kalimdor, where they founded a new homeland with the help of their tauren brethren. Naming their new land Durotar after Thrall's murdered father, the orcs settled down to rebuild their once-glorious society. The demonic curse on their kind ended, the Horde changed from a warlike juggernaut into more of a loose coalition, dedicated to survival and prosperity rather than conquest. Aided by the noble tauren and the cunning trolls of the Darkspear tribe, Thrall and his orcs looked forward to a new era of peace in their own land.
From there, they began the creation of the great warrior city, Orgrimmar. Named after the former Warchief, Orgrim Doomhammer, the new city was constructed in a short amount of time, with the aid of goblins, tauren, trolls, and the Mok'Nathal Rexxar. Despite having some problems with the centaur, harpies, enraged thunder lizards, kobolds, evil orcish warlocks, quilboars, and unfortunately, the Alliance, Orgrimmar prospered in the end and became home to the orcs and Darkspear Trolls.
Today, Orgrimmar lies at the base of a mountain between Durotar and Azshara. A warrior city indeed, it is home to countless amounts of orcs, trolls, tauren, and an increasing amount of Forsaken are now joining the city, as well as the Blood Elves who have recently been accepted into the Horde.
