The Hammer of Khaz'goroth is one of the five Pillars of Creation, which forged ancient wonders and shaped the earth itself.[1]

At some point, Neltharion acquired it, and stored it in his lair. After the War of the Ancients, Huln Highmountain and an uprising of Deathwing's drogbar slaves battled the Earth Warder, and Huln used the Hammer of Khaz'goroth to banish Deathwing from the land.[2] Ever since, it has been guarded by Huln's descendants, the Highmountain tribe, but it has recently been stolen from The Hammer's Cradle by the drogbar leader Dargrul the Underking who intends to use its power to take control of Highmountain.[3] It can turn drogbar into elemental furies,[4] and destroy towns by reshaping the stone under them.[5][6] It can be obtained when Dargrul is killed.

It's an objective of the following quests:

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.
  • It is unknown how the Highborne obtained the Hammer of Khaz'goroth, since it appears it was in the possession of Neltharion and was only taken from his vault by Huln Highmountain after the final battle at the Well of Eternity and the defeat of the Legion.[7]
    • It is possible that the Hammer only ended up in Neltharion's care after the sealing of the Legion portal, as his betrayal was not uncovered until later.
