Shadowlord Slaghammer is a Dark Iron dwarf shadow priest sent by Moira Thaurissan to infiltrate the Twilight's Hammer cult in order to pay off his "family debt". When a shadow priest adventurer arrives at the tomb of Tyr below the Tirisfal Glades in search of  [Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire], Slaghammer turns on Twilight Deacon Farthing's Twilight cultists and helps the priest recover the blade.


Main article: Blade in Twilight#Notes
We dinna hae much time, but ye deserve some answers. What ye want to know about? The Shadow Deacon? The Blade? What the hell is going on? Hah!
  • Gossip This was sort of sudden, where are we?
Can ye believe they found the Tomb of Tyr himself?! He died here LONG ago fighting some monstrous general of the Old Gods. His comrades buried him 'ere and the corpse o' that beast further in.
This tomb was also meant to guard the prison tomb o' that monster but the Twilight's Hammer put a stop ta that.
The Shadow Deacon used that blade o' his ta get in and his minions to keep the wards down while he went below.
  • Gossip The Shadow Deacon? Who is this new leader?
The Hammer has been in disarray since their Twilight Father and Deathwing took a dive. I'm guessin' tha when the Legion attacked one o' the leaders that was left took to the idea of takin' over while everyone was distracted.
He dredged up an ancient artifact o' the Old Gods and is planning on using it on that dead monstrosity down there to cement his takeover o' the cult.
I dinna get a good look at the Deacon, but he seems really familiar...
  • Gossip You mentioned a magical blade, can you tell me more?
That blade... I knew Moira would want ta know. I think that dagger has been behind some of the worst nightmares Azeroth has seen if I remember the stories. It looks similar ta stories told about the War o' Three Hammers... and Grim Batol.
It oozes shadow and seems ta cut the verra light! I think it might have a mind of its own too, it seems the Shadow Deacon is sometimes talkin' and arguing, but to nobody at all!
We'd best stop this ritual and pry that blade loose o' the cult.


Ambassador Slaghammer

This section includes speculation on characters that might be related, usually because they may share a last name. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

It is unclear what relation Shadowlord Slaghammer has to Ambassador Slaghammer. Their physical appearances, including hair and beard style, appear to be identical, but if the two were the same person it would seem odd for Shadowlord Slaghammer to mention a "family debt", as opposed to a personal debt.

Additionally, while Shadowlord Slaghammer speaks with a very thick dwarven accent and is loyal to Moira, Ambassador Slaghammer speaks with no noticeable accent at all and appears to be genuinely loyal to the Twilight's Hammer.
