Dialogue[]

Before match

Gul'dan (present)
▶️The master twisted Ner'zhul's grief to serve his own ends, driving him to unite the orcs in war against the peaceful draenei.
▶️We became the Horde - an unstoppable army led by Warchief Blackhand. One by one, we devastated the settlements of our foes.
▶️By the time Ner'zhul suspected anything, my favor with master Kil'jaeden had greatly eclipsed his own. He was helpless to stop me.

Introduction

Gul'dan
▶️Chieftains of the Horde! This is the Cup of Unity. I offer its blessings to all who pledge their loyalty to our cause.

Restart

Durotan
▶️Trust me, this is for the best. I will undo all you have wrought.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
As a necessity of his bid for power, Gul'dan trained a number of like-minded and powerful orcs, whom he named the Shadow Council. The Council was soon using its power and influence to direct almost every aspect of orc society, so as to distract those few who opposed his dark ideals from their true masters, Gul'dan and Kil'jaeden. He opened schools of demonology and necromancy to teach shamans new power to replace their lost connections to the elements, transforming them into necrolytes and warlocks. To seal the bargain between him and Kil'jaeden, Gul'dan and the Shadow Council offered the clan chieftains the Blood of Mannoroth. The first chieftain to accept his gift was Grommash Hellscream, with majority of the remaining following suit right after. The resulting Horde was bloodthirsty, barbaric, and evil, an extension of the demons whom they now worshiped.
