Gor'tesh, the brute lord, is an ogre and the leader of the Firegut ogres in the Burning Steppes. He is apparently a very intelligent ogre, ruling not directly from Dreadmaul Rock, but hiding in safety among the Blackrock clan forces near the Pillar of Ash.

Oralius wanted Gor'tesh's head for a party. In Cataclysm, his head still sits on a pike behind Oralius.

Patch changes

Oralius got his wish.

  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Oralius now stands next to Gor'tesh's Lopped Off Head. A new ogre, Mob Gorlop, now uses Gor'tesh's database ID.
  • WoW Icon update.png Patch 1.7.0 (2005-09-13): Gor'tesh should no longer stay in evade mode indefinitely.
