The Laughing Skull Orcs is an orc clan presumably led by Kaz the Shrieker and makes their home in Gorgrond. Known for their violent and bloodthirsty nature, these orcs take great pride in their clan identity and have therefore refused to join the Iron Horde. With the Iron Horde trying to destroy the Laughing Skull clan, they have allied themselves with the Frostwolf clan and the Horde to fight their common enemy.

In the past, the two clans battled against each other.[1] Following events in Gorgrond, however, they appear to be rather close allies.

Early in their settlement of Draenor, the draenei learned from the Laughing Skulls that podlings hate fire.[2]

The Laughing Skull chortle whenever they collect Humerus Bones from a fallen enemy.

Warlords of Draenor

WoD This section concerns content exclusive to Warlords of Draenor.

As the various clans of Draenor began uniting to begin their invasion of Azeroth, the Laughing Skulls rejected their offer, wishing to keep their freedom to kill whomever they wished. Following H [92] The Battle of Thunder Pass, the Frostwolf clan chieftain Durotan, his mate Draka, and the Horde commander make contact with the Laughing Skull shaman Kaz the Shrieker. After helping them with a goren invasion of their village, Kaz and her compatriots agree to an alliance with the Frostwolves, and by extension Vol'jin's Horde, against their common enemies. The Laughing Skull's involvement in the Gorgrond storyline splits when the player chooses either a lumber mill or an arena.

During the Arena Campaign, the Laughing Skull has a smaller role. Bony Xuk accompanies the player through the wastes giving quests until H [93] Get the Xuk Outta Here! when the spirits apparently play a trick on the shaman and get him killed by Gro the Uncreator. His spirit can be recruited as a follower.

During the Lumber Mill Campaign, the clan has a comparatively larger role, where Kaz and her son Cutter join Draka in battling the botani and securing greater resources for the garrison. During the storyline, Kaz and Draka butt heads over strategy but eventually begin to respect each other. They discover an artifact that can control genesaurs and retrieve it from the hands of the botani. After an epic battle during H [92] Iyu, Kaz now calls Draka "sister" and pledges her clan and herself (as a follower) fully the Horde's cause. The Laughing Skull later aids in the assault on the Iron Approach during H [93] Strike While the Iron is Hot.

Greater Laughing Skull Orc reputation can be unlocked by building a Trading Post at your garrison.

Tanaan Jungle

A group of Laughing Skull refugees can be found at Rangari Refuge in Tanaan Jungle, where they are under supervision by Frogan. Some scouts have been imprisoned in the Hellfire Citadel but were rescued when the adventurers raided the place.

Speculation

Questionmark-medium.png
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.

Mogor led the Laughing Skull clan during the Second War, but is not shown to be connected to them in Warlords of Draenor. As the earliest reference to Mogor in the main timeline was in the Second War, it's possible he only took command of the clan around then.
