Soon after the Alliance and Horde arrived in Northrend, the Anub'ar invaded Taunka'le Village, trying to collapse it from below. It was defended by Akiak and Trag Highmountain who fought against them in their tunnels.[1] Seeing this sacrifice, Akiak led a group of taunka into Icecrown. Near Icecrown Citadel, they were ambushed by more Anub'ar. Soon they noticed Trag being blasted out of the citadel. They turned to meet the falling tauren, but Akiak's taunka quickly dispatched them.[2]

Wrath of the Lich King[]

From the Pit of Narjun the Anub'ar nerubians assaulted and ultimately razed the taunka village of Icemist.[3] During the fall of Icemist the Anub'ar captured the High Chieftain of the taunka Roanauk Icemist and bound him in magical chains in the middle of Icemist Village.[4] With Icemist in their control the Anub'ar were joined by cultists whose suits emit fumes that corrupt everything in their surroundings.[5] The cultists are led by High Cultist Zangus.[6][7]

Anub'ar forces took to ambushing Horde caravans heading toward Westwind Refugee Camp, causing Blood Guard Roh'kill to request aid in thinning their numbers.[8] The Anub'ar also constructed blightbeasts to strike at the Horde soldiers at the Angrathar the Wrathgate.[9]

After the taunka ally with the Horde, the Horde strikes back against the Anub'ar in order to take back Icemist and free High Chieftain Icemist.[10][11]

Within Azjol-Nerub Anub'ar forces are seen fighting Hadronox, presumably in an effort to turn it into a weapon of the Scourge similar to Maexxna in Naxxramas.

The Azjol-anak, a group of living nerubians, enlisted the aid of adventurers in reclaiming Azjol-Nerub and putting an end to Anub'arak.[12]
