The Skyhorn

The Skyhorn, the most sacred artifact of the tribe.

The Skyhorn tribe is one of the four tribes of the Highmountain tauren, led by Lasan Skyhorn. They are a proud people: their tribe sports some of the greatest pathfinders and hunters Azeroth has ever known.[1]

The Skyhorn are masters of the skies. Much like the Frostborn dwarves of the Storm Peaks, they ride on enormous eagles which allows them to reach areas that no other tauren can. This has also caused them to become more dominant than the Rivermane and Bloodtotem, which in turn has caused tension with the latter tribe.[2]

The Skyhorn's totem animal is an eagle. Their totem can be found outside the exit of the Path of Sky in Thunder Totem, implying that they represent the element of air.

The Sepulcher of the Sky is the tribe's ancient,[3] sacred burial ground.[4]


During the War of the Ancients, Chief Headcloud met Morg Strongcurrent and Halla Blurblades after Huln Highmountain asked the tribes to unite against the Burning Legion. However, as the leader of the Skyhorn tribe at the time, Headcloud refused to fight beside Halla Blurblades and his Bloodtotem tribe, and it was mutual. In the end, Morg Strongcurrent managed to convince them to put aside their pride, in order to protect their tribes and children from the demons, and together they united to fight the invaders.[5]


Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

At the time of the third invasion of the Burning Legion, the Skyhorn have been attacked by the harpies of the region, who have been emboldened by the theft of the Inv mace 1h titanpillar b 01 [Hammer of Khaz'goroth].[2] The harpy leader, High Crawliac, has recently taught her witches how to transform the noble eagles of the Skyhorn into vile rocs.[6] After the adventurer assists in killing High Crawliac and clearing out the harpies, Lasan journeys to Thunder Totem to once again declare his allegiance to the Highmountain Tribe.[7]




  • When one has become a friend of the Skyhorn tribe, they are given the title of "Skyfriend" and allowed free passage through the tribe's lands.[8]
  • At some point, Crawshuk the Hungry attacked their village but was defeated by the class orders.[9]
