Race preview

Known for their fiery tempers and fierce determination, Dark Iron dwarves have a turbulent history with the other clans. A failed coup in Ironforge ignited the War of the Three Hammers, and many of the Dark Iron once fought in the service of Ragnaros the Firelord. Though one faction of the dwarves is pledged to Queen-Regent Moira Thaurissan, others refuse to stand alongside their kin. The Alliance seeks a united Dark Iron clan to harness the power of Azerite and aid their struggle against the Horde.[1]

Creation screen description

Known for their fiery tempers and fierce determination, the Dark Iron have a history of strife with the other dwarven clans--as well as their own kin. Queen-Regeant[sic] Moira seeks to unite her people and lead them in the fight to save Azeroth.

Opening cutscene

Moira Thaurissan: The mountain gives us life. Grants us strength. The same blood that flows through our veins... flows through Azeroth's as well. Upon hammer and anvil, our kingdom was forged. With hearts o' fire... and wills o' iron. This world must be defended. Forward, Dark Irons! Tae battle we march!
