"Me think Warlock clan make these and let them get away, 'cause fire not listen to nobody." - Unknown[1]

The creation of a simulacrum of the elements of fire. While these servants can be constructed and controlled by powerful mages, many have proved too difficult to hold in the summoner's power. Should they escape their creator these creatures rage uncontrollably, determined to destroy all those who are like the one that imprisoned them in this domain.[2]

While their watery brethren fall under the domain of the Humans, these creatures serve no other. They only seek to destroy anything or anyone that they come in contact with. No one knows if these are summoned beings, or the result of some rogue magiks. The only sure thing is that they are deadly, and seem to take some dark pleasure in the pain they inflict.[1]


A Fire Elemental as seen in the Warcraft: Orcs & Humans Manual.

Fire Elementals are found in the missions Medivh and Northshire Abbey. They are tough units with high stats and also deal an incredible amount of damage.

All Fire Elementals in the campaigns have upgraded weapons and armor, improving their stats as shown in the unit box above. The only way to fight non-upgraded Elementals is to add them to another map via a third-party editor.
