The Bloodscalp are a tribe (or a clan) of jungle trolls that split off from the Gurubashi Empire after the defeat of Hakkar the Soulflayer. The various tribes claimed territories in the vast jungles of Stranglethorn Vale but quickly began fighting one another.
The Bloodscalp tribe has since settled in the northwest of Stranglethorn and to this day the Bloodscalp fight off all interlopers, including the nearby Skullsplitter tribe, in order to hold onto the land they have taken. Bloodscalps have nothing but contempt for the Darkspear tribe, which is the first tribe of jungle trolls to have joined the Horde.
The water elemental Naias is the mastermind behind the Bloodscalp and their exotic magic. Some Bloodscalps bear totems written in Kalimag that mark them as an ally of Naias and worthy to channel his power. The Bloodscalps have used Naias' magic to become the strongest tribe in the area.

In the RPG
The violent and brutal jungle trolls of Stranglethorn Vale thrive on conflict. While the Bloodscalp tribe can afford only a unit or two of these warriors, the trolls can strike swiftly and inflict terrible losses on enemy units while keeping highly mobile. The trolls will throw spears before coming into close combat with their brutal axes. If pressed, they tend to go into a berserk rage to hack and crush their way through their enemies. Motivating a mass of berserker trolls is difficult, and these creatures don't make the most responsive of troops.
Notes and trivia
- Every Bloodscalp troll has bright red hair. This contrasts with their rivals, the Skullsplitter tribe, all of whom have dark blue hair. The name of the tribe and the troll's choice of hair color flow well together, due to their scalps being adorned with blood-red hair.
- Parrots can't get enough of the fresh fish the Bloodscalp trolls eat.
- There is a realm named Server:Bloodscalp.
