Leeroy Jenkins is a valiant human paladin. He is always the first into battle, with or without the readiness of his forces.[1]

The character was inspired by the fan-made Leeroy Jenkins video, in which Leeroy caused a wipe by abruptly running into battle while the rest of his group was attempting to formulate a plan.

Leeroy Jenkins appears in the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game as an epic ally card. Leeroy also appears as a legendary minion in the Hearthstone online card game. Leeroy made his World of Warcraft debut in the Warlords of Draenor expansion, where he can be recruited as a garrison follower.

In Ulduar, the Archivum refers to the group discussion in the video by saying, "Calculating chance of Omega reply code: 99.99%. That's repeating, of course."[2]

The achievement  [Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy!], which awards the in-game title Jenkins, was introduced to Upper Blackrock Spire in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. This achievement was replaced by  [Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy...?] when the dungeon was redesigned for World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.

In the updated version of Upper Blackrock Spire, Leeroy's body can be found in the Rookery next to Kyrak. On heroic mode, he can be resurrected provided the group has not yet proceeded to the next area. Resurrecting him will begin a 900 second countdown, at the end of which Leeroy will charge into battle and make his way towards the Son of the Beast. As a level 60 NPC in a level 100 dungeon, Leeroy will be killed unless the players have already cleared out each room he passes through.

If Leeroy successfully makes it to the Son of the Beast's corpse and acquires his Devout shoulders, the players will be awarded the  [Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy...?] achievement and recruit Leeroy as a garrison follower.

He can also be seen watching fights between garrison commanders in the Coliseum of Highmaul.

Leeroy can be found down by the waterfront of Mariner's Row in Boralus during Faction Assaults. He traveled to the Caverns of Time with his pet chicken Mr. Clucker during Warcraft's Anniversary.

Upper Blackrock Spire

What? Where am I? I am so tired.
Wait a second. It is coming back to me. This is Blackrock Spire, and we are... we are here to vanquish evil and get me some much needed loot.
I remember it all, now. You are my pals, my pals for life. Weird, I thought there were more of you.
No matter. You are the brains, the creators of the perfect plan, and I am the one who will enact that plan with surgical accuracy.
But first, I am hungry. It is like I have not eaten in 8 years. I guess I will just cook this chicken that I have in my bag while you devise our plan of attack.
Yep, I will cook this completely not rotten chicken that I had in my bag. You all just go ahead and devise the perfect plan.
Timer running
I like what I'm hearing from your plan, pals. It is very well thought out, and mathematically flawless.
Time's up!
Alright chums, I'm back! Let's do this! Leeroooooy... Jenkins!
Leeroooooooy! Jeeeeenkins!
It's not my fault.
My Devout shoulders! I knew they were here! My quest is complete.
Now time for a little well deserved rest and relaxation! If you need me, I will be back at your garrison.

Check and see if it has my shoulders!
