Lord Darius Crowley considers "weapons" to be just a suggestion.

This article contains "true" facts about Lord Darius Crowley. They started after he revealed his greatness by his mastery of cleaving his enemies with his bare hands, and received its base from many discussions on the forums.

Facts must be Warcraft-related, must not be repeated from facts already in the list, and must use good, concise, English grammar. Incoherent, unfunny, or facts which are similar to another will be edited out. Facts must also be "appropriate."


  • Crowley and Saurfang played a game of rock, paper, and scissors. After a century passed and neither won, they both decided to play a small prank on each other's faction.

Keeshan and Mankrik (Crowley sending quillboars to hit on Mankrik's wife, and Saurfang personally man-handled Keeshan's wife before he cleaved her).

  • It's not a secret to Darius Crowley.

  • As Crowley is humble, he lets the Horde kill him once in a while. The tears he drops will turn even the worst of the bads into a masterclass raider... for the Alliance.
  • Furthermore, when he dies, he does not take durability damage. In fact, it goes up by 10% and the repairer pays him to bring it back to 100% since anything higher than that is not technically possible.
  • As an extension to the last point, if Crowley were to spirit res, his stats would also go up by 75% for 10 minutes.
  • An orc informant told Garrosh that Crowley had "res sickness". Not knowing the point above, he sent a raid to kill Crowley. As soon as Crowley Bladestormed the raid, they changed allegiance and proceeded to beat the crap out of Garrosh. (It was later rumored that said informant was Thrall.)
  • When Saurfang suggested Tuesday maintenance, it used to last for 3 days until Crowley intervened.
