Overlord Krom'gar was the leader of the Krom'gar, the Horde forces in Stonetalon Mountains after the Cataclysm. His second in command was General Grebo.


He oversaw the delivery of The Bomb into Stonetalon, and planned to expel the Alliance from Kalimdor, no matter the cost. He was directly responsible for the deaths of High Chieftain Cliffwalker's family. He was "dismissed" by Warchief Garrosh Hellscream because of his dishonorable tactics, such as the bombing of Thal'darah Grove, which ultimately led to a Pyrrhic victory and brought shame to the Horde. If players have not yet completed the questline, then they can see him residing at Krom'gar Fortress. He appears at Cliffwalker Post late in the chain.

Ironically, Garrosh himself later uses similar tactics in his attack on Theramore.


Krom'gar was an overzealous partisan and fiercely loyal, both to the Horde and Warchief Hellscream. This, coupled with his paranoia and lack of ethics, led to him mishandling his army in Stonetalon in pursuit of victory. However, Krom'gar was not evil, just misguided. He committed his war crimes because he thought he was doing what he must and only in the end, when he had fallen out of Hellscream's favor, did he realize the error of his ways. That said, Krom'gar was not without redeeming qualities. He incentivized his soldiers with rousing speeches and promotions if they performed well, and he inspired fierce loyalty in them. Though he cowered in the face of an enraged Hellscream, he stood defiantly in the face of the attack on Krom'gar Fortress. He evidently also had a soft side, as shown by him buying ice cream for Clarissa and the Horde adventurers after they helped slaughter some Alliance forces (though he admitted that Clarissa's strange behavior left him, perhaps for the first time in his life, speechless).[2]



  • "Hellscream's eyes are upon us all!"
  • Every few minutes at Krom'gar Fortress, he will begin a speech to the Krom'gar Grunts:
Overlord Krom'gar says: Grunts, ATTENTION!
The grunts salute Overlord Krom'gar.
Overlord Krom'gar says: I am perplexed. Troubled by what I witness...
Overlord Krom'gar says: How has our revered Warchief failed you?
Overlord Krom'gar says: Your families no longer starve.
Overlord Krom'gar says: Your loved ones live with shelter over their heads.
Overlord Krom'gar says: You may walk through the streets of Orgrimmar with pride!
Overlord Krom'gar says: We are the new Horde, and under Warchief Hellscream, we are the masters of our own destinies.
Overlord Krom'gar says: WHY THEN, have we failed to take Stonetalon Mountains?
Overlord Krom'gar says: How have the Alliance been able to halt the great Horde war machine?
Overlord Krom'gar says: From this day forth, failure is no longer an option.
Overlord Krom'gar says: Under Hellscream's watchful guise, live or die, we take Stonetalon.
Overlord Krom'gar says: Do not falter, for Hellscream's eyes are upon you all!
The grunts salute Overlord Krom'gar.
Overlord Krom'gar says: DESTROY THEM ALL!
Overlord Krom'gar says: FIRE!
Overlord Krom'gar says: FOR THE HORDE!
Overlord Krom'gar says: MORE INCOMING! FIRE! FIRE!
Overlord Krom'gar says: TEAR THE SKY ASUNDER!
