Delvar Ironfist is a dwarf death knight who was recruited as a follower by the Alliance commander during their initial tour of Stormshield. Delvar Ironfist is a surly dwarf that loves battle almost as much as mead.[1] His grand-father Gygax trained him when he was just a lad.[2] Lieutenant Howell described him as opinionated, a bit gruff and overbearing dwarf.[3] He can also be seen watching fights between garrison commanders in the Coliseum of Highmaul.

His Horde counterpart is Vivianne.




  • Me grandpa Gygax trained me when I was just a lad. Ye won't be finding a better warrior in these parts. I can promise ye that.
  • Look, I don't have time for any... Oh, it's you!
  • Well it's about time ye showed up. I'm done slumming around with these new recruits.
Me blade is sharp, me armor is spit shined and I combed me beard this mornin'.
I've been ready for battle since me grandpa Gygax first put an axe in me wee lil hand.
So whad'ya say, commander?


Delvar is recruited by completing A [90] Delvar Ironfist, which is the last quest offered to the Alliance champion during their first visit to Stormshield.

Abilities and Traits

  • Delvar will always have [Bone Shield] as his first ability, which counters Massive Strike.
  • If Delvar is epic, he will have a random second ability.
  • Delvar will always have Bodyguard as his first trait.
  • Delvar's other traits are always random.

Notes and trivia

  • In Warlords of Draenor beta, Delvar used to be an Arms Warrior.[citation needed]  He was changed before launch to Blood Death Knight.
    • This may be the reason he appears to be drunk some times.
  • When Delvar serves as a companion, other players will see him as Stormshield Death Knight.
  • When Delvar's reputation reaches Wingman, his axe does not upgrade along with his armor. As a result, he punches enemies with his fist. This is a direct reference to his namesake 'Khelgar Ironfist' from Neverwinter Nights 2, a dwarven warrior-turned-monk.
  • Delvar wears a reskinned version of the death knight tier 10 armor, Scourgelord's Battlegear. This version is unavailable to players. It is also worn by Marwyn in the Halls of Reflection and Deathbringer Saurfang in Icecrown Citadel.
  • Delvar's mention of his grandpa Gygax is a reference to Gary Gygax, creator of Dungeons & Dragons.
