Gorfax Angerfang is an orc warrior of the Dragonmaw clan usually found in the Wetlands at Angerfang Encampment. He is the chieftain of the Dragonmaw at the Angerfang encampment.

He seems to have taken leadership of the clan following the death of Nek'rosh Skullcrusher and later Warlord Zaela, as he represents the Dragonmaw at the prestige ceremony in the Undercity.

Gorfax Angerfang visiting the Undercity.

When a Horde player reaches Prestige Rank 2, Gorfax can be found in the Undercity alongside other notable leaders of the Horde. During H [10-45] A Royal Audience, he is present at the ceremony hosted by Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner that congratulates the character for their battles against the Alliance, following their receiving of the  [High Warlord's Medal of Valor] from the Warchief, as well as an artifact appearance.

Objective of



This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.
  • His presence during the prestige ceremony might indicate that he is the leader of the Dragonmaw Clan, given that he was the "Chief of the Angerfang Dragonmaw" prior to his inclusion in Undercity.
  • Despite being slain during the quest A [10-30] The Angerfang Menace, Gorfax appears in the Undercity. It is entirely possible that, rather than the quest being non-canon, Gorfax simply survived the attempt on his life, as he would not be the first Horde leader to have appeared dead only to survive.
  • Since he was described as a chief in Cataclysm, there may have been a splinter in the Dragonmaw at some point as he was alive at the same time as Mor'ghor, who had claimed dominion over the Dragonmaw during his initial appearance. It is worth a note that Mor'ghor's title was Warchief, meaning that Gorfax could still be a subordinate.
