Firelord Smolderon is the Elemental Lord of fire and master of the Firelands. He had been fighting for power against Pyroth following the death of Ragnaros during the Cataclysm, until the Earthen Ring helped make him the new Firelord during the third invasion of the Burning Legion. However, shortly after becoming the Firelord, he went missing.


The death of Ragnaros after the Cataclysm left the Firelands in utter chaos.[1] The elementals residing there became engaged in an epic battle for supremacy.[2] Eventually Smolderon and Pyroth, the son of Lord Rhyolith, would emerge as the top contenders for the position of Firelord.


Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, the shaman of the Earthen Ring attempt to unite the Elemental Lords once more, and recruit them in the fight against the Burning Legion. Upon witnessing the civil war raging in the Firelands, the Farseer sent scouts ahead and learned that Smolderon was more willing to work with mortals than Pyroth. The Earthen Ring retrieved Inv polearm 2h firelandsraid d 01 [Emberscar, Brand of Damnation] for Smolderon to wield, and then slew Pyroth. Now free to rule uncontested, Smolderon became the new Firelord. In exchange, he would help the mortals against the invading demon.

Smolderon sent a servant by the name of Baron Scaldius to represent him and to aid the Ring at the Heart of Azeroth.[3] Smolderon himself later journeyed to the Broken Shore to disrupt the Legion's control over the elements and to request the Ring to put an end to Barastagax the Flamecleaver, a demon who had somehow been able to use the power of the Firelands, which greatly angered Smolderon.

Battle for Azeroth[]

When the Cult of Ragnaros attempted to revive Ragnaros in Sulfuron Keep, Smolderon was missing. A worried Anvil-Thane Thurgaden was even wondering where Smolderon was, to which the cult's apparent leader High Justice Grimstone only replied "All in due time."[4]

Following Fyrakk's alliance with the Druids of the Flame and entry into the Emerald Dream, Smolderon has been shown to throw his lot in with the Primal Incarnate with the intention of expanding his domain and appears in the assault on Amirdrassil. However, despite his power, Smolderon failed to defeat the World Tree's defenders, leading to his death. The last of his flames would be absorbed by Fyrakk to empower himself to breach into Amirdrassil's core.

Gossip in Firelands

Tread carefully in my domain, shaman. Even Farseers can burn...


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Smolderon uses the same model as Baleroc and when the Shaman firsts meets him he is located exactly where the Baleroc boss fight takes place. Since Pyroth said he was the son of Rhyolith and also stood in the same boss encounter area as his father, Smolderon may be the son of Baleroc.
