Adventure Guide

Dargrul is the most powerful Underking since the age of Neltharion. Certain that only he has the right to wield the power of Khaz'goroth, Dargul[sic] murdered High Chieftain Ulan and seized the artifact from the Highmountain tauren. Now, he uses the Hammer's power to devastate the region and any who oppose him.


Dargrul wields the Hammer of Khaz'goroth to shape earth and fire to strike the party, while summoning fiery minions that pursue random players.

Heroic Difficulty On Heroic difficulty, the Molten Charskins no longer use Magma Breaker, but instead increase their speed and damage over time with Rising Inferno. Dargrul now uses Magma Breaker to damage the party each time he moves.
