WoW-novel-logo-16x62 This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

Some time after the Cataclysm, he and Chugara Razorflank caught the traitor Shagtusk and the dryad Taryndrella. He wanted to sacrifice the dryad to Amnennar at the Bone Pile. Although he started the ritual and summoned various undead monstrosities to defend him, Taryndrella's friends rescued her while he was attacked by Reigol Valdread.[2]

During the war in Draenor, Razorfen Downs was invaded by the heroes of the Alliance and Horde. His death revived Amnennar from his phylactery.

Adventure Guide[]

Death Speaker Blackthorn rose quickly through the ranks of the Death's Head cult after the defeat of Amnennar the Coldbringer. Shortly after usurping control of the cult, Blackthorn began receiving dark whispers. These whispers promised power and riches beyond belief, if he could return Amnennar to life. Compelled by unnatural energies Blackthorn discovered the location of Amnennar's Phylactery and has returned to Razorfen downs to complete the ritual that will return his former master to life once more.
