Orgrimmar is the faction for the capital city Orgrimmar of the orcs and trolls of the Darkspear Trolls.

History

Thrall led the orcs to the continent of Kalimdor, where they founded a new homeland, naming it Durotar after Thrall's murdered father. Rising above their past bloodshed and demonic curse, the orcs built a society based on survival and prosperity rather than conquest.

Named after the former Warchief, Orgrim Doomhammer, Orgrimmar was constructed in a short amount of time, with the aid of goblins, tauren, trolls, and Rexxar.

Today, Orgrimmar lies at the base of a mountain between Durotar and Azshara. Times have changed though, since Garrosh's reign as Warchief--he has alienated several races due to his aggressive and insecure nature.

Reputation

Stone Guard Nargol, in the center of Orgrimmar, sells Orgrimmar Tabard which grants reputation in all dungeons.

Large amounts of Orgrimmar reputation can be gained in the following zones: Alterac Valley, Azshara, Blasted Lands, Durotar, Northern Barrens, Orgrimmar, Silverpine Forest, Southern Barrens, Stonetalon Mountains, The Lost Isles, Twilight Highlands. There are also daily quests available from the Argent Tournament, as well as Orgrimmar Writ of Commendation from the Molten Front.

Non-Orc Horde players can purchase up to seven wolf mounts from Ogunaro Wolfrunner in the Valley of Honor--with Exalted reputation.

Notable characters

Pre-Cataclysm

From his throne in the Valley of Wisdom, Warchief Thrall ruled with the support of the elder far seer Zor Lonetree and the Darkspear hero Vol'jin. Together they formed a wise and noble leadership, capable of guiding the Horde in conflicts with opposing factions such as the Alliance, Scourge, and Burning Legion. While regarding the latter two as nothing but vile enemies, which they are, Thrall was attempting to repair the Horde's relationship with the Alliance. However, animosity between these factions remained during his rule, and have now spilled over. The continued aggression of the Kul'Tirasforces from their base in Tiragarde, combined with several incidents on Azeroth's northernmost continent, have clearly indicated not everyone was keen on pursuing peace.

Current

Prior to his fall from grace and subsequent imprisonment, Garrosh Hellscream ruled in Thrall's stead, intent on showcasing the might of the Horde. His attitude distanced some heroes of the Horde from him that were more intent on peace, chief among them Vol'jin. Garrosh, increasingly mad with power, expelled non-orcs from the city and fortified Orgrimmar. In addition, his loyal troops, now fashioned the True Horde, had been waging war on Pandaria against the Alliance. Vol'jin, with the aid of several other Horde leaders as well as support from the Alliance, began to fight back and started an uprising called the Darkspear Rebellion against the dictator Garrosh. As his "True Horde" began to fight against the Darkspear Rebellion and the Alliance, Garrosh recovered the Heart of Y'Shaarj and brought it back to Orgrimmar. Eventually, the city came under siege as the Horde and Alliance attacked. Garrosh's loyal belligerents, the Kor'kron Guard under Malkorok, defended Orgrimmar while Garrosh was seeking to unleash the power of Y'Shaarj. However, Garrosh was defeated and made to stand trial in Pandaria for his atrocities and crimes. Thrall then appointed Vol'jin as the new Warchief of the Horde in the presence of all the other Horde leaders. Vol'jin was approached by King Varian Wrynn and they agreed to end the war between the Alliance and the Horde. With Vol'jin as the new head of state for the Horde, it can be assumed that the prior non-orc residents of Orgrimmar began to return and rebuild.
