Chieftain Nek'rosh Skullcrusher was an orc found in the Wetlands. Usually guarded by 5 orcs, he was the target of A [26] Defeat Nek'rosh.


After the death of Nekros Skullcrusher leadership of the Dragonmaw Clan fell to his son, Nek'rosh, who has vowed revenge against the dragons who killed his father. The Dragonmaw were fiercely hunted for this; what few remained fled from Grim Batol and into the mountains east of Whelgar's Excavation Site.[1]

Under Nek'rosh's leadership, the Dragonmaw clan regained their strength from an encampment in the hills east of Menethil Harbor. Nek'rosh built catapults to lay siege to Menethil, which - with the fighting in Dun Algaz - would be effectively blocked from reinforcements.[2] Alliance adventurers were sent by Captain Stoutfist to destroy the catapults and kill Nek'rosh.
