Gruul's Lair

Gruul's Lair is located north of Ruuan Weald in the Blade's Edge Mountains of Outland. Here, Gruul the Dragonkiller, the merciless gronn overlord, rules over the ogres of Blade's Edge.

This raid contains two bosses, Gruul the Dragonkiller and High King Maulgar, and requires no attunement. The player must be at least level 65 and in a raid to enter.


When the infamous Dragon Aspect, Deathwing, discovered the Dark Portal and Draenor, he felt sure that few of Draenor's denizens would dare challenge the black dragonflight, so he scattered clutches of his eggs throughout the world.

Deathwing made a serious miscalculation when he chose to leave his eggs under meager guardianship in Blade's Edge Mountains. The guardian dragons were torn from the sky by the gronn living in Blade's Edge, and the leader of the gronn, Gruul, impaled the wyrms he fought on the stone spires of the mountains.

Today Gruul the Dragonkiller is worshipped as a deity by the ogres of Blade's Edge Mountains. His powerful sons ravage both the spires of their home and the plains of Nagrand. Gruul's unparalleled strength and experience in battle would pose a serious threat if he ever chose to attack Horde or Alliance forces in Outland.[1]
