Melgromm Highmountain is a level 70 elite tauren shaman part of the Horde. He spawned during the Dark Portal Opens event, specifically when the Dark Portal was starting to be overrun by demons.

He wields a two-handed totem as a weapon which is rare. Although he is definitely associated with the Horde, he is friendly to everyone.


Melgromm spawned when the Dark Portal was starting to be overrun by demons along with five other elite 60 Thunder Bluff Huntsmen. He had to reach the very front of the portal to despawn.

After this event he can later be found on the Stair of Destiny, which is where players come out to when crossing through the Dark Portal. Here he battles alongside Horde forces on the right and Alliance forces on the left against Legion siegebreakers attempting to go through the reopened Dark Portal.
