Lord Jaraxxus is an eredar demon lord of the Burning Legion.


Before becoming man'ari, Jaraxxus was known as Grand Vizier Jarasum, one of the three greatest pupils of Archimonde. He acted as the Arc-Consul's second and oversaw much of the day to day operations in the Conservatory of the Arcane. When discipline was needed, it was often his voice that would ring out. He was not well liked, but he was respected nonetheless.[1]

Lord Jaraxxus was summoned by Grand Warlock Wilfred Fizzlebang when the gnome attempted to summon a doomguard for the next challenge during the Trial of the Crusader. Jaraxxus killed Fizzlebang for his efforts, and next planned to kill the adventurer. Despite being accompanied by Mistresses of Pain and Felflame Infernals, the eredar was defeated, as requested by the Kirin Tor and the Council of Six.[2]

Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

Jaraxxus is one of the many demons summoned by Gul'dan in front of the Tomb of Sargeras to attack the forces of Azeroth in the climactic, disastrous battle at the Broken Shore.[3]

His location after the formation of the Legionfall is unknown.

In Hearthstone

Hearthstone This section contains information exclusive to Hearthstone and is considered non-canon.

He appears as a legendary card for the Warlock class in Hearthstone. Playing the card destroys the summoning warlock and replaces him with Lord Jaraxxus. The game then continues with the player now controlling Jaraxxus, as a significantly enhanced hero with formidable powers. The card is infamous, both for its devastating power and for the soundbites which accompany its use. His flavor text is the same quote he uses in the instance: "TRIFLING GNOME! YOUR ARROGANCE WILL BE YOUR UNDOING!!!!"

  • In the WoW TCG, the card artwork depicts Kurzon the False instead, an eredar hero.
  • In the Grand Tournament expansion, there is also a rare Warlock spell called Fist of Jaraxxus. In the TCG, the artwork is used to depict a blue-skinned Eredar Chaosbringer. The flavor text "* Not actually Jaraxxus' fist." may be a reference to that.
    • When asked about this, Ben Brode jokingly replied: "That's actually Jaraxxus. An Eredar Lord's skin changes color to match his mood. That's Chillaxxus."
  • Players who pre-purchase the "Mega Bundle" for the The Boomsday Project expansion receive an alternate warlock hero in the form of Mecha-Jaraxxus.
