Once led by , this fierce army has historic ties to the island stronghold of Tol Barad. They have joined the forces of the Alliance in an effort to repel the Horde invaders and gain control of this crucial strategic point.
Baradin's Wardens are a motley collection of soldiers based on the island of Tol Barad. Though they bolster their ranks with mercenaries at many opportunities, several prominent members of Baradin's Wardens claim ancestry from Stromgarde, a human-led nation that battled against the Horde on the shores of Tol Barad in the past. Still others speak of years of service to the magi of Kul Tiras, claiming that they were charged with ensuring that the deadly prisoners locked away in the mystic Baradin Hold never again walk free on Azeroth.
Whether these claims are simple bravado or truth remains to be seen, but the effect of invoking the bloody history of the island's guardians cannot be denied. Baradin's Wardens are fiercely dedicated to their mission.
These champions seek aid from anyone willing to cross swords with the Horde armies scattered throughout the island of Tol Barad. The favors they extend to their champions are equally militant: mighty battle standards, peerless weapons, and other combat aids, all of which they hope will serve their continued goal of controlling the prison island once more.
- According to an early beta screenshot of the Eastern Earthshrine, the Baradin's Wardens wore Kul Tiras tabards. Since then, they now have their own tabard, although according to recently released info, some claim they had been affiliated with the magi of Kul Tiras.
