Azzinoth was a powerful doomguard commander slain by Illidan Stormrage during the War of the Ancients, 10,000 years ago. He was the original wielder of Illidan's warglaives, which the demon hunter claimed after slaying the demon.
In the RPG
Illidan slew Azzinoth, and took his weapons, a pair of vicious twin warglaives called the blades of Azzinoth. Over the millennia, Illidan trained and grew more and more adept with the demonic weapons, and has become proficient with them. He carries them still.
- Azzinoth is mentioned in the non-canon Warcraft RPG, in Arthas: Rise of the Lich King and in the Ultimate Visual Guide. Illidan's encounter with Azzinoth is an extension to the events of the War of the Ancients, but was not mentioned in any other accounts of the war.
- Azzinoth later appeared in the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game (War of the Ancients). Oddly, he is depicted as a terrorguard, even though all other sources, including the TCG card itself, calls him a doomguard.
