The Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan[1] was an orc leader[2] of the Blackrock clan.[1] He was in charge of communicating with his clan's demon masters.[1]


During the Third War the Blackrock clan invaded Strahnbrad and the prince Arthas Menethil proceeded to defend the town, while the paladin Uther the Lightbringer went to attack the Blackrock Camp. During the defense of the town the orcs sent prisoners to the Blackrock clan where the Blademaster of the Blackrock clan was located. After Arthas killed the Slave Master he moved on to Uther's base,[3] who was waiting for two knights that were sent to parley with the Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan, but the blademaster killed the knights and sent just the horses in return.[1]

The Blademaster then sent orcs and jungle trolls to invade Uther's base. After some time he used the Mirror Image ability and sent his image to speak with Uther, he told him that the warlocks of the Blackrock clan had spoken and that the demons would rain from the sky and that the world would burn. Uther attacked the image but realized that it was an illusion. Meanwhile the real Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan sacrificed the captured prisoners to appease his demon masters.[1]

Arthas was angered by the Blademaster's actions and commanded his troops to slay the blademaster, before he had a chance to communicate with the Burning Legion. After a battle, Arthas destroyed the orc encampment and killed the Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan. In the end, it was a sound victory and the orcs were defeated but still active. With the Blademaster dead, the Alliance went home[1] and many orcs were still alive and led by Jubei'Thos.[4]

  • "Paladin fool! The warlocks of the Blackrock clan have spoken! Soon, demons will rain from the sky, and this wretched world will burn!"
  • See Warcraft III Blademaster quotes


  • During gameplay he is simply called "Blademaster", but in a cinematic he is called "Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan".
  • There is another hero called "Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan" in the World Editor, but his model is that of a fel orc bearing a Blackrock banner. That model was used for Jubei'Thos.
