The Iron Docks are a massive port located in Gorgrond staffed by the Iron Horde's elite Grom'kar forces.


These docks were designed by Solog Roark, who also designed the warships that are built here. The massive Iron Horde invasion fleet in Talador came from here at the end of the Gorgrond storyline. When Blackhand was killed in the Blackrock Foundry all remaining Blackrock orcs started using the docks as a evacuation zone into the Tanaan Jungle via the Ironhold Harbor. Gul'dan began using these docks as a recruitment area to persuade the surviving Blackrock orcs to drink the Blood of Mannoroth. Those that refused were seen as traitors to the Iron Horde and imprisoned in a train car awaiting transport. One of the orcs that refused was Solog Roark himself, and as such he was imprisoned and Admiral Knar took command of the harbor.

Solog later cites the docks as being a "wasteful piece of over-engineering," which indicates that he did not have free license to design as efficiently as he would have liked, and likely had to bow to someone else's direction.

Adventure Guide

On the northern coast of Gorgrond, the Iron Docks represent the heart of the Iron Horde's naval might. Huge warships and artillery, forged and assembled within the Blackrock Foundry, are readied for war within this massive port. The greatest beasts of Draenor are broken and trained alongside elite infantry units, comprising the ground troops that will surge ashore to break the will of any who would dare oppose the Iron Horde.
