Ariok is a Blackrock orc initially encountered at Flamestar Post (only visible to Horde players), in the contested territory of Burning Steppes. He later moves to Chiselgrip and finally Flame Crest.

He is an orc of the Blackrock clan, but he doesn't share their goals and objectives. It is later revealed that he is the son of Eitrigg. He spent his life in the Blackrock Mountain and he had befriended the Dark Irons of the Thorium Brotherhood.

For Alliance players, his counterpart is John J. Keeshan, who offers the Alliance version of his quests.

Ariok in Tanaan Jungle.

Tanaan Jungle

Ariok was part of the initial Azerothian expedition to Draenor and was seen fighting Iron Horde Grunts alongside many others at the Dark Portal in Blasted Lands and Tanaan Jungle. During the Assault on the Dark Portal, Khadgar tasked him and the adventurers with distracting the Eye of Kilrogg at the Bleeding Altar so the rest of the group could advance without being noticed. However, Kilrogg Deadeye and the Bleeding Hollow Clan spotted them and prepared to attack the group. Ariok empowered himself with the blood magic of the Bleeding Hollow and attacked the Warlord in order to buy the rest of the group time to escape.[1] What happened to him afterwards is unknown.

When at Flamestar Post:

When at Flame Crest:


I serve my father and respect his plan... but I also serve my own sense of justice. I have seen enough treachery from my Blackrock brothers to fill a thousand books. And now they plan to invade Redridge, for no reason other than blind territorialism.

The treachery stops here. It's time for the final chapter. And it's not going to be a happy ending.
