World Of Warcraft Classic: The Heroes Of Azeroth: The Horde

Fans of World of Warcraft have been waiting for quite some time now for the release of the next expansion patch for their favourite MMORPG. Shadowlands will be available on November 24 for vanilla WOW, meanwhile, WOW Classic players are still waiting for phase 6 of the game and more news about the future of the game. WoW Classic gold is still available at the GoldPiles store to help you beat the game. This article is part of a series that aims to give the players more information about the lore of Warcraft. After the forces of the Alliance, this week’s article will put the spotlight on the forces of the Horde.

The Horde as a faction has four playable races just like the Alliance, with classes only available to them. Players can choose between the Orcs, the Tauren, the Trolls and the Undead if they want to be part of the Horde in WOW Classic. As we already discussed in previous articles, the Orcs are a proud race originating from Draenor. The arrived on Azeroth as conquerors and were the cause of the formation of the Alliance. As an Orc, a player can become a hunter, a rogue, a shaman, a warlock or a warrior. Their capital city is Orgrimmar and they are led by the war chief Thrall, a shaman who was one of the heroes of Warcraft 3.

The Orcs met the Taurenon Kalimdor while fleeing Lordaeron and the Burning Legion forces. The members of that race have beastlike features and a deep bond with nature. Tauren players can become druids, hunters, shamans and warriors. The Tauren are usually nomads, however, they decided to build a central city called Thunder Bluff. This city was built as a haven for wary hunters and as a commercial hub for caravans. The Tauren leader is CairneBloodhoof who was introduced in Warcraft 3 like many other WOW Classic’s characters.

Next, we have the Trolls; it is a race of vicious and brutal creatures that are present in many regions of Azeroth. Only the Darkspear Tribe is part of the Horde after war chief Thrall saved them from annihilation by welcoming them. Trolls can become hunter, mages, priests, rogues, shamans and warriors. Their capital city Orgrimmar, where they found asylum and their leader is Vol’jin, son of Sen’jin who serves as an advisor for Thrall.

Lastly, we have the Undead, but not any type of undead. The Forsaken are a faction of undead who broke free from the Lich King’s control and now are members of the Horde. They are part of the Horde but seem to have their own darker goals. They can become mages, priests, rogues, warlocks and warriors. They reside under the ancient capital city of Lordaeron and their leader is Sylvanas Windrunner.
