As it stands now, the Orcish Horde freed themselves from the Burning Legion's bloodpact with Orgrim Doomhammer's declaration of war upon the Legion. This action divided the Horde. Orgrim's elite Blackrock clan, having established itself at the ruins of Lordaeron, faces the daunting task of preserving a vast but scattered orcish empire against both Humans and the Legion's armies. The Warsong-led clans of Draenor, having remained in Draenor during the Second War, face the growing threat of the increasingly powerful horde of traitorous fel orcs and vile demons threatening the Orcish homeworld and its inhabitants' very survival. Alterac, having remained loyal to Doomhammer's Horde, face the growing troll army of the Hinterlands. Varok Saurfang, entrusted by Orgrim as Warchief of the Southern Horde stationed in Azeroth, gathers his army within the ruins of Stormwind and at Blackrock Spire in preparation for dealing the deathblow to the human resistance of Azeroth.
