The Dragonmaw Gates are a set of four grandiose portals that block the winding path leading from the Wetlands up to Grim Batol in the Twilight Highlands. Once guarded by the red dragonflight, led by the powerful drake Axtroz, the area has since been taken over by the Twilight's Hammer after the Cataclysm.
One of the gates located at Wyrms' Bend was targeted by the Alliance and Horde forces attacking the Twilight's Hammer stronghold of Grim Batol. While being defended by the cultists, it was opened by the Horde's Gob Squad and Alliance's Highbank forces in order to reach the dwarven citadel.
In the RPG
The Dragonmaw Gates are a series of massive, orc-built gates that lines the pathway up the mountain to Grim Batol's entrance. The Dragonmaw clan constructed these gates to keep the Alliance forces away from the mountain. Now, red dragonspawn and their flying drake brethren patrol the gates.
The first two gates in Dragonmaw Pass.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Formerly a subzone of the Wetlands, this area is now divided between the Dragonmaw Pass and Wyrms' Bend subzones of the Twilight Highlands.
