Saru Steelfury is an orc blacksmithing trainer located at the Burning Anvil in the Valley of Honor in Orgrimmar. He is the warchief's personal smith[1] and bowyer,[2] and is commissioned to create a variety of weapons for promising young adventurers. He has two apprentices: Snarl and Ug'thok. Sumi and Tumi appear to be his daughters.[3]

A few weeks prior to the War of the Thorns, in the midst of High Overlord Saurfang's efforts to deceive the Alliance, an explosion rocked the Burning Anvil after the forge started sparking, whistling, and leaking molten metal. Saru came out of it unscathed and publicly stated that one of his apprentices must have left some felslate cooking too long and that the rumors of Alliance sabotage were nonsense. High Overlord Saurfang himself announced that he would have everything in the forge repaired and promised Saru in writing that he would replace all the Azerite that was lost in the explosion. This confused Steelfury, since he was certain there hadn't been any Azerite in the forge that day, but he decided that if he was the only smith in Orgrimmar known to be able to work with Azerite, it could only improve his reputation. Saru kept Saurfang's letter in a hidden satchel. A few days later, he noticed that it looked as though someone had forced it open, but nothing appeared to be stolen and the only thing that appeared to be amiss was that the letter was in the wrong pocket.[4]




What is it you seek at my forge? Is it training? Do you perhaps seek the secrets of steel? The mysteries of the forge? Speak up Grunt!

Low Blacksmithing skill

This isn't a game you toy with youngling! Go, speak with Snarl outside. He may be a serpent in my lair but he does know his way around an anvil.


Welcome to my forge, Blacksmith. Let me share with you a little secret. No one, no one in the world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts... this you can trust, Steel.

Trainer Train me.
