Kronus is a Earth Fury NPC who assists the Horde in battle in Ashran.

First encountered as an Underpowered Earth Fury, Kronus must be empowered through by gathering 3,000 Artifact Fragments for Shaman Atomik, in Warspear Outpost. Once empowered, he will move toward the forward most Horde-controlled base, attacking any hostile characters he encounters.

Atomik yells: Kronus has been energized! He's out to patrol Ashran!

Atomik yells: You fools! The Alliance has killed Kronus!


  • Kronus will attack hostile targets on sight, but seems to have a fairly small aggro radius, and is quite capable of ignoring nearby enemies.
