Ironmarch Commander Tharbek is the commander of the Ironmarch, serving under Warlord Zaela and was intially found at the site of the Dark Portal. He later meets his demise within Blackrock Stadium, the arena of Blackrock Spire.

Dungeon Journal[]

A cunning warrior of the Warsong clan, Tharbek was entrusted with the task of leading the expeditionary Ironmarch assault through the Dark Portal. Following Garrosh's instructions, he made his way to the home of the Blackrock orcs in Azeroth to rally forces for the next phase of the operation.


After sending out waves of lesser minions, Commander Tharbek swoops in atop his vicious rylak mount, the Ironbarb Skyreaver. Once the rylak is sufficiently injured, Tharbek dismounts and attacks on foot.

Warlord Zaela yells: Commander Tharbek, it seems your troops have allowed a group of pitiful heroes to sneak past them.
Commander Tharbek yells: I apologize for this failure Warlord Zaela. The Iron March will take care of these intruders!
Commander Tharbek yells: Iron March, kill them or I will kill you!
Warlord Zaela yells: Kill the one in the dress!

Warlord Zaela yells: Well done Commander, but it seems that the intruders are still quite alive.
Commander Tharbek yells: What? Unacceptable!
Commander Tharbek yells: Kill them you fools!

Warlord Zaela yells: This is pitiful! Do your men not know where the sharp part of the axe goes?
Tharbek is perplexed.
Commander Tharbek yells: I don't understand, these intruders fight with the fury of Grommash himself.
Warlord Zaela yells: I will hear no more of these excuses. I am going to go prepare the weapon, take care of these invaders or I will show you how a true orc deals with failure.
Commander Tharbek yells: Yes Warlord! I will handle this personally!
Commander Tharbek yells: Fetch my mount, I am tired of watching you peons disgrace my Iron Horde.
Now let us finish this.

Notes and trivia[]

  • While this Tharbek is from the Warsong clan, the main-universe Tharbek was from the Blackrock clan. It is unknown why it is so, but it may have been one of the differences between the universes as described by Kairoz, a mistake by Blizzard or that these two Tharbeks should not be considered as counterparts but completely different persons.
  • Oddly enough, his model is of a Dragonmaw orc.
  • Tharbek is voiced by Marc Graue.

Patch changes[]

  • Warlords of Draenor Hotfix (2014-10-14): Commander Tharbek received a tuning pass on their damage and ability cooldowns.
  • Warlords of Draenor Patch 6.0.2 (2014-10-14): Added.
