Before match

Garrosh Hellscream (present)
Thrall's advisors had promised to support me, but instead they turned on me the moment the Warchief was gone.
One of them, Cairne Bloodhoof, was so bold as to challenge me to a Mak'gora… a duel for leadership of the Horde.


Garrosh Hellscream
Have you come to fight me, old bull?
Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof
Earth Mother guide my blows...

Start of Game

Magatha Grimtotem
I give you a great blessing.

Emote Response

Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof
I fear we may not find an agreement outside of battle.

Hero Power

Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof
For honor!
Respect our ways.


Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof
If only you were as skilled at listening as you are attacking.
Thrall saw only his fondness for you, not who you truly are.
You should learn from your elders, not fight them!

Turn 2

Garrosh Hellscream
Well played. It would seem it's just your wits that are slow.
Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof
You are not so clever as you think.

Turn 4

Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof
I fight for more than myself. I fight for the future of the Horde.
Garrosh Hellscream

Turn 6

Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof
I have lived my whole life with honor. You may trust my counsel.
Garrosh Hellscream
I think you mean "cowardice." And I do not trust it at all.


Garrosh Hellscream
The great Cairne Bloodhoof has fallen! Think again before questioning me!
But wait... wasn't that almost TOO easy?


Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof
Destruction is easy. Creating something that lasts is a true challenge.


Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Cairne Bloodhoof was the Chief of the united tribes of the tauren, chieftain of the Bloodhoof, leader of Thunder Bluff, and the final wielder of the Bloodhoof Runespear. Allying with the Horde upon its arrival on the shores of Kalimdor, Cairne stood as one of its wisest and most venerated leaders, until his unfortunate death in a duel against Garrosh Hellscream, the new Warchief of the Horde.
Each combatant is allowed one weapon and no armor. Cairne takes up his Bloodhoof Runespear, a sacred weapon of the Bloodhoof chieftains, while Garrosh carries LegacyGorehowl, the axe that belonged to his father, Grom Hellscream. The weapons are blessed by shaman; Gorehowl is blessed by Madness at the Darkmoon FaireMagatha Grimtotem, who seems approving of the new Warchief. At first gaining the upper hand, the Runespear is shattered by Gorehowl and Cairne takes a glancing slash in the chest. Cairne suddenly becomes faint and unable to raise what remained of his Runespear to defend himself, and he realizes that Magatha has poisoned Garrosh's weapon. Cairne's last thought is a lament - that he, who had lived with honor, would die betrayed, just as the howling axe of Hellscream slices into his neck. The tauren leader dies before he even hits the ground.
