Auchenai Crypts

Boss icon Shirrak the Dead Watcher.png Shirrak the Dead Watcher
Shirrak was constructed by Exarch Maladaar to guard over the fallen draenei spirits who wander the Auchenai Crypts. A necrotic mass of eyes, teeth, and tentacles, this undead construct absorbs arcane energy with hungry abandon, and will not suffer the living to pass.
Boss icon Exarch Maladaar.png Exarch Maladaar
The sole living remnant of the glory that once strode the halls of Auchenai, Maladaar has been driven mad by the loss of everyone and everything he ever loved. His lunatic dedication to the preservation of their memory has driven him to a mastery of the dark arts.

Reviled amongst the denizens of Outland, Gargolmar is known to eat the hearts of those he catches near the Hellfire Citadel whether they were trying to enter or not. Charged by Kargath Bladefist himself with the defense of the ramparts, Watchkeeper Gargolmar is unflinching in his duty.
Boss icon Omor the Unscarred.png Omor the Unscarred
Omor the Unscarred was a disciple of Hakkar the Houndmaster, and took charge of the legendary warrior's remaining felhounds after his master's defeat during the War of the Ancients.

Boss icon Vazruden.png Vazruden the Herald

Magisters' Terrace

After his defeat in Tempest Keep, Kael'thas Sunstrider publicly revealed his alliance with the ruthless Burning Legion. Intent upon summoning the demon lord Kil'jaeden, Kael'thas has returned to the Isle of Quel'Danas to make the final preparations for his master's arrival.

Boss icon Selin Fireheart.png Selin Fireheart
Once a respected captain of Kael'Thas Sunstrider's personal guard, Selin Fireheart has maintained an unswervingly fierce loyalty to his lord while losing his sanity. Selin has been seduced by the demonic energies of the crystals which surround his chamber, and cannot stop from reveling in their vile power. He will slay any who dare approach the Magister's Terrace and will drink the magic, life, and blood from their dead bodies.
Boss icon Vexallus.png Vexallus
An arcane elemental of unimaginable power, Vexallus was summoned to the Magister's Terrace by a trio of blood elves who were slain by the force of his arrival. The magical energy in the surrounding crystals resonates within Vexallus, and his being is in a constant state of explosive chaotic flux.
Boss icon Priestess Delrissa.png Priestess Delrissa

It is Delrissa who revived Kael'thas Sunstrider after he was heavily wounded in an attack on Tempest Keep, and she has stayed in the blood elf lord's presence ever since. The priestess has a militant circle of loyal acolytes who serve her and will defend her at all cost.
Boss icon Kaelthas Sunstrider.png Kael'thas Sunstrider
Once a true champion to the blood elf people, and a defender of the race's ancient heritage, Kael'thas Sunstrider has fallen prey to the dark influences of the demon Kil'jaeden while sojourning in Outland. At the bidding of his new master, the wayward prince returned to Azeroth and seized the Sunwell, hoping to use the fount as a means to open a doorway for the demon to this new and verdant world. Kael'thas is a brilliant tactician, a powerful warrior, and his veins burn with limitless fel magic.

Mana-Tombs

The original exiles on Draenor found death to be an unsettling and unfortunate consequence of life, and so the draenei hid their dead away in the subterranean grave-city of Auchindoun, a labyrinthine marvel beneath the forests of Terokkar.

Boss icon Pandemonius.png Pandemonius
This infamous Void Lord is also known as the Duke of Chaos, the Eater of Nations, and Worldslayer.

Boss icon Tavarok.png Tavarok
Under the command of Kael'thas Sunstrider, Pathaleon the Calculator summoned a powerful colossus to gather the arcane energies flowing from beneath the Mana Tombs.

The white colossus has gained his own free will and uses it to greedily consume all who would stand in his way.
Boss icon Yor.png Yor
A "gift" from Illidan Stormrage to accompany Nexus-Prince Shaffar Yor is a void hound of unlimited savagery and power. The prince's advisors warned him that Illidan's demonic gift was most likely a ruse set to betray Shaffar once he had met his goals. The prince fed those advisors to Yor... but has since kept the hound in a stasis chamber just in case.
Boss icon Nexus Prince Shaffar.png Nexus-Prince Shaffar
Convinced that vast riches lay within the depths of the Mana Tombs, Nexus-Prince Shaffar has spent untold amounts of his own considerable fortune to move an army into the shadowed halls of this crumbling ruin, and to keep competing ethereals out.

Old Hillsbrad Foothills

Deep within the Caverns of Time, the brooding dragon Nozdormu has awakened. Since the world was young, the bronze dragonflight has safeguarded the winding labyrinth, monitoring the shifting timeways to ensure that the delicate balance of time is upheld.

Boss icon Lieutenant Drake.png Lieutenant Drake
Lieutenant Drake was an ambitious military man, with his eyes set upon the glory of command during the Second War. His ambition was only matched by his hatred for the green-skinned orcs who had slain so many of his companions, a hatred which took form in his cruel treatment of the prisoners in the internment camps of Durnholde Keep.
Boss icon Captain Skarloc.png Captain Skarloc
Fiercely loyal to Aedelas Blackmoore, Captain Skarloc rose through the ranks of the Durnholde military alongside his friend Aliden Perenolde.

He will summon every ounce of his strength, power, subtlety, and cunning to bring about the end of this timeline.

Sethekk Halls

The original exiles on Draenor found death to be an unsettling and unfortunate consequence of life, and so the draenei hid their dead away in the subterranean grave-city of Auchindoun, a labyrinthine marvel beneath the forests of Terokkar.

Boss icon Darkweaver Syth.png Darkweaver Syth
Darkweaver Syth is charged by the Talon King Ikiss to defend the Sethekk Halls while the renegade arakkoa search for their enigmatic god. A master of shadowy magic, this wizened trickster has learned how to bend the very elements to his sway.
Boss icon Anzu.png Anzu
A mysterious avian deity worshipped by some of the more savage arakkoa, Anzu is a being whose origins and powers are unlike any other member of Outland's fallen pantheon. The Naaru are silent regarding this malevolent creature, for Anzu's ways are hidden from even them.
Boss icon Talon King Ikiss.png Talon King Ikiss
Talon King Ikiss was the charismatic spiritual leader of the daring group of arakkoa which left their home in the Terokkar forest in search of a promised god. He had received dreams of this god as he slept and knew that revelation lay within the crumbling halls of Auchindoun. Ikiss was driven insane by the visions and now declares himself to be Terokk reborn a divine hero from arakkoa myth.

Shadow Labyrinth

The original exiles on Draenor found death to be an unsettling and unfortunate consequence of life, and so the draenei hid their dead away in the subterranean grave-city of Auchindoun, a labyrinthine marvel beneath the forests of Terokkar.

Boss icon Ambassador Hellmaw.png Ambassador Hellmaw
A powerful demonic servant and acolyte of pain, Ambassador Hellmaw is dedicated to the art of death. He loves nothing more than the taste of a mortal's lifeblood tinged with horror and despair.

Boss icon Blackheart the Inciter.png Blackheart the Inciter
When the orcish Horde first invaded Azeroth through the Dark Portal, two Shadow Council members instead turned their attentions to the ancient draenei burial grounds of Auchindoun.

Boss icon Grandmaster Vorpil.png Grandmaster Vorpil
In the early days of the Horde, Grandmaster Vorpil convinced the orc warlock Gul'dan to allow him to investigate the mysteries of Auchindoun, secretly desiring to harness the energy of the frighteningly powerful cosmic essences that permeated the area.
Boss icon Murmur.png Murmur
"In the beginning"... "So far away"... such phrases cannot begin to describe this elemental's origin. Its existence heralds pure destruction. Worlds shatter and the pieces scatter at its whim. Only the truly mad would think to summon it. Perhaps there is yet time to banish Murmur before it fully enters Outland.

The Arcatraz

The mighty Tempest Keep was created by the enigmatic naaru: sentient beings of pure energy and the sworn enemies of the Burning Legion. In addition to serving as a base of operations for the naaru, the structure itself possesses the technology to teleport through alternate dimensions, travelling from one location to another in the blink of an eye.

Boss icon Zereketh the Unbound.png Zereketh the Unbound
Most creatures from the Twisting Nether require constant directions from their masters, but a select few voidwraiths need no such orders. Zereketh stands at the entrance to Arcatraz, ready to slay all who would dare challenge him.
Boss icon Dalliah the Doomsayer.png Dalliah the Doomsayer
Before she was imprisoned by the naaru, Dalliah was one of the most vicious and aggressive warriors within the Burning Legion. Spending so much time as a cellmate to Wrath-Scryer Soccothrates did not improve her disposition either.
Boss icon Wrath Scryer Soccothrates.png Wrath-Scryer Soccothrates
Millennia ago, Soccothrates held a position of honor among the Wrathguards, standing at the side of the Burning Legion's top commanders. Confinement did not suit his considerable ego. Neither did his cellmate.
Boss icon Harbinger Skyriss.png Harbinger Skyriss
The naaru believed the persuasive voice of Harbinger Skyriss was silenced when they contained him and forced him into a long, dreamless sleep. The unfortunate warden of Arcatraz learned the naaru were wrong. Skyriss had just enough energy to speak to Warden Mellichar in a still, small voice. Time took care of the rest.

The Black Morass

Deep within the Caverns of Time, the brooding dragon Nozdormu has awakened. Since the world was young, the bronze dragonflight has safeguarded the winding labyrinth, monitoring the shifting timeways to ensure that the delicate balance of time is upheld.

The Infinite Dragonflight tempted many drakonid with promises of power, but most found only servitude and despair. One of the few exceptions is Chrono Lord Deja, who gained influence within the flight through his raw power and cunning.
Boss icon Temporus.png Temporus
Although relatively young, Temporus was instrumental in identifying many of the Infinite Dragonflight's prime targets. As a reward, he was given the responsibility of destroying anyone who might attempt to interfere with the dragonflight's plans.
Boss icon Aeonus.png Aeonus
Powerful and wild, Aeonus was tasked by the Master of the Infinite Dragonflight to personally oversee the disruption of key moments in the true timeway.

All creatures who use the power of fel magic, willingly or otherwise, slowly take on the appearance of demons. The Maker accelerates their corruption and performs cruel experiments on any who attempt to resist.
Boss icon Broggok.png Broggok
Some creatures occasionally have second thoughts about their allegiance to their new, corrupt masters. Broggok ensures that any subversive notions among the fel orcs are permanently eradicated.
Boss icon Kelidan the Breaker.png Keli'dan the Breaker
When Illidan overthrew the pit lord Magtheridon and took control of Outland, he had the demonic leader imprisoned beneath the Hellfire Citadel. Only the most stalwart among Illidan's forces could ever hope to keep him contained; the ruthless orc, Keli'dan, was the only possible choice.

The Botanica

The mighty Tempest Keep was created by the enigmatic naaru: sentient beings of pure energy and the sworn enemies of the Burning Legion. In addition to serving as a base of operations for the naaru, the structure itself possesses the technology to teleport through alternate dimensions, travelling from one location to another in the blink of an eye.

Boss icon Commander Sarannis.png Commander Sarannis
When the fallen blood elf leader, Kael'thas, seized control of the Tempest Keep, he immediately ordered Commander Sarannis to prepare defenses against whomever the naaru might send to reclaim the keep.
Boss icon High Botanist Freywinn.png High Botanist Freywinn
Mere minutes after entering the Botanica, Freywinn began conducting reckless experiments in order to unlock the power hidden among the native plant life of Outland.
Boss icon Thorngrin the Tender.png Thorngrin the Tender
Experiments require resources. Thorngrin the Tender makes sure that Kael'thas's botanists have the power and essence they need to reveal the naaru's secrets, even if that means untold numbers of living creatures must be sacrificed to obtain it.
Boss icon Laj.png Laj
The naaru gathered samples of unusual wildlife from across Outland. Their safeguards were destroyed when the Botanica was invaded, leaving some of the most dangerous specimens free to roam.
Boss icon Warp Splinter.png Warp Splinter
The night elves of Darnassus have asked for help in restoring an Ancient of the Arcane, who found itself trapped in Tempest Keep. Frightened by the recent attack by Kael'thas Sunstrider's forces, the Warp Splinter is unable to differentiate friend from foe and is liable to attack any who disturb it.

The Mechanar

The mighty Tempest Keep was created by the enigmatic naaru: sentient beings of pure energy and the sworn enemies of the Burning Legion. In addition to serving as a base of operations for the naaru, the structure itself possesses the technology to teleport through alternate dimensions, travelling from one location to another in the blink of an eye.

Boss icon Mechano Lord Capacitus.png Mechano-Lord Capacitus
It takes a tremendous amount of skill and precision to harvest the power of the naaru's manacells. These talents can easily be turned upon any intruders.
Boss icon Nethermancer Sepethrea.png Nethermancer Sepethrea
Thanks to her skills at quickly summoning creatures to destroy any enemies, Sepethrea was chosen as an apprentice to Pathaleon the Calculator, the blood elf in charge of the Mechanar.
Boss icon Pathaleon the Calculator.png Pathaleon the Calculator
Following the Sunwell's defilement, the vainglorious arcanist Pathaleon saw an opportunity to gain renown by aiding Kael'thas in finding a cure for his race's addiction to magic. This single-minded quest led him to join the blood elf prince on Outland and oversee his disastrous experiments. Most recently, Pathaleon has begun harnessing the Tempest Keep's otherworldly technologies in pursuit of fame and power.

The Shattered Halls

At the heart of Outland's barren Hellfire Peninsula stand Hellfire Citadel, a nearly impenetrable bastion that served as the Horde's base of operations throughout the First and Second Wars.

Boss icon Grand Warlock Nethekurse.png Grand Warlock Nethekurse
Nethekurse, once a shaman of the Shadowmoon clan, abandoned his reverence for the elements to master the art of wielding fel magic. The demonic energies at his command have left him a husk who finds delight only in torturing young fel orcs to test the limits of their mental and physical strength.
Boss icon Blood Guard Porung.png Blood Guard Porung
During the bloody siege of Shattrath, Porung stormed an enclave of draenei paladins who had barricaded themselves within a corner of the city. He single-handedly slaughtered the defenders, but suffered a grave injury that left him incapable of following the Horde when it later stormed Azeroth. Now recovered, Porung serves Warchief Kargath Bladefist in Hellfire Citadel, hoping to make up for the glorious battles he has missed and write his name in orcish history with the blood of his enemies.
Boss icon Warbringer Omrogg.png Warbringer O'mrogg
The ruthless and cunning ogre O'mrogg is considered one of the Fel Horde's deadliest members. But this feared brute has a problem. The ogre's two heads have always struggled to agree on even the simplest matters. Two years ago, O'mrogg began a twelve-step plan to develop a synergy between his warring personalities. His heads have yet to decide on which step to start with.
Boss icon Warchief Kargath Bladefist.png Warchief Kargath Bladefist
Chieftain of the Shattered Hand clan and warchief of the Fel Horde, Kargath is one of the greatest orcish heroes in recent memory. Over the years, he has severed both of his hands and replaced them with weapons of war, a bloody ritual unique to his clan. The joy he derives from inflicting pain on both others and himself is legendary among the orcs. As the Fel Horde's tyrannical ruler, he has channeled his ruthlessness and ferocity into forging an unstoppable army within the iron walls of Hellfire Citadel.

The Slave Pens

Coilfang Reservoir is the name for a naga-dominated compound that lurks under Zangarmarsh's deepest waters. The reservoir, punctured throughout by massive open pipes and pistons, seems big enough to house armies - and, yet, its purpose isn't strictly military.

Boss icon Mennu the Betrayer.png Mennu the Betrayer
Mennu is one of the Broken, draenei twisted and deformed by demonic energies unleashed by the orcs. When the naga invaded Zangarmarsh, many of these tragic beings desperately attempted to escape the region. Mennu, however, chose a different path to freedom. In exchange for his own life, he betrayed his fellow Broken to the serpentine invaders and agreed to lord over his kin as a slave driver.
Boss icon Rokmar the Crackler.png Rokmar the Crackler
Following Draenor's destruction, Rokmar fled into the depths of Zangarmarsh. The energies that had torn the world apart enveloped the behemoth, bolstering its strength and size at the price of constant agony. The naga were awed by Rokmar's ferocity when they first arrived in the region. Rather than kill the beast, they enslaved it and used the creature to subjugate much of Zangarmarsh's indigenous life.
Boss icon Quagmirran.png Quagmirran
Quagmirran was once a ruler of Zangarmarsh's immense fungal giants. He was captured by the naga while wandering the region's serpentine caverns and subjected to excruciating torture. Now this broken being serves his overlords without question, silencing all who oppose the will of Lady Vashj.

The Steamvault

Coilfang Reservoir is the name for a naga-dominated compound that lurks under Zangarmarsh's deepest waters. The reservoir, punctured throughout by massive open pipes and pistons, seems big enough to house armies - and, yet, its purpose isn't strictly military.

Boss icon Hydromancer Thespia.png Hydromancer Thespia
At the height of the night elf empire, the Highborne Thespia delighted in art and music. Her love of these things vanished during the Great Sundering, when she and many of her kin were sucked into Azeroth's deeps and transformed into hateful naga. In the millennia that followed, Thespia remained a close confidant of her childhood friend, Lady Vashj. Without hesitation, she journeyed with her comrade to Zangarmarsh and vowed to oversee the naga's quest to drain the region's water supply.
Boss icon Mekgineer Steamrigger.png Mekgineer Steamrigger
The irradiation of Gnomeregan transformed many of the city's survivors into leper gnomes. Among these victims was the brilliant Mekgineer Steamrigger. Although he escaped Gnomeregan and retained his intellect, whatever ethics and compassion he had once possessed were gone. He wandered Azeroth, selling his knowledge to a number of unscrupulous groups such as the Bloodsail Buccaneers. Recently, the naga hired Steamrigger to operate the intricate machinery in Zangarmarsh's Steamvault.
Boss icon Warlord Kalithresh.png Warlord Kalithresh
Deep within the Steamvault, the naga have begun experimenting with a mysterious substance to strengthen their warriors and purge them of fear. Kalithresh was one of Lady Vashj's first servants to volunteer as a test subject for this dark elixir. As reward, he has been charged with guarding the expansive Steamvault and ensuring the region's arcane machinery operates without interruption.

The Underbog

Coilfang Reservoir is the name for a naga-dominated compound that lurks under Zangarmarsh's deepest waters. The reservoir, punctured throughout by massive open pipes and pistons, seems big enough to house armies - and, yet, its purpose isn't strictly military.

Boss icon Hungarfen.png Hungarfen
Unlike his ally, Quagmirran, the great fungal giant Hungarfen has thus far eluded enslavement by the naga. Nonetheless, he remains aggressive to all outsiders who tread into the deepest caverns of Zangarmarsh. Oblivious to the naga's machinations in other parts of the region, Hungarfen spends much of his time tending the Underspore, an ancient plant said to be his most prized possession.
Boss icon Ghazan.png Ghaz'an
Historians have long disagreed about whether the immense hydras of Azeroth and Outland share a common ancestor. What is clear, however, is that these ruthless creatures have existed on both realms since ancient times. Ghaz'an is one of the most infamous and fearsome hydras on Outland. Under the control of Lady Vashj, this ravenous fiend has stormed the lower reaches of Zangarmarsh to terrorize the region's denizens.
Boss icon Swamplord Muselek.png Swamplord Musel'ek
To be one of the Broken is to be an outcast. This truth weighs heavy on Swamplord Musel'ek. Although he is a member of the Murkblood Broken, he prefers to roam the caverns beneath Zangarmarsh alone. During one of these recent wanderings, he used his mastery over beasts to enthrall Windcaller Claw, a druid who had been exploring the area in the form of a ferocious bear. Musel'ek has forced Claw to act as a loyal companion who will not judge him for the twisted being he has become.
Boss icon The Black Stalker.png The Black Stalker
The marsh walkers of Outland are towering creatures that prowl the wilds, feasting on any lesser creatures they come across. The sporelings of Zangarmarsh tell tales concerning one of these predators, a particularly ruthless beast known as the Black Stalker. Broodmother to all marsh walkers, it is said she emerges from her lair deep in the Underbog only to satisfy her hunger for delicious sporelings.
