The Highmountain tribe is a nomadic tribe of tauren.[1] In the aftermath of the Third War they apparently live in the Eastern Kingdoms.[1] "Highmountain Tribe" is also the name of a tribe of Highmountain tauren of the Broken Isles, descendants of the hero Huln Highmountain, but their relation to the Highmountain of the Eastern Kingdoms is unknown.


War of the Ancients

Main article: Highmountain Tribe

A tauren hero by the name Huln Highmountain acted as the spokesperson for the united tauren tribes during the War of the Ancients after having united the warring tribes of his homeland, but it is unclear if Huln's Highmountain Tribe is the same as the Highmountain of the Eastern Kingdoms.

Trag Highmountain

Trag before he died.

Trag Highmountain was a tauren of the tribe. He left his fellows and joined a barony of Mordis. During a battle he died,[2] but was raised as a Forsaken because of the powers of the Orb of Ner'zhul.[1]

Dark Portal Opens

Melgromm fight against demons.

Melgromm Highmountain helped the Horde and the Alliance to drive the demons back to Outland. He later fought in the Stair of Destiny when they managed to cross the Dark Portal.

Betrayal of their undead tribesman

Trag returned with his tribe, but the shaman, Sulamm betrayed him and ordered Ornamm to kill Trag whilst he slept with a spell. Trag was burning when he awakened and defeated the Tauren party led by Ornamm, however, he didn't kill anyone but proceded to confront the shaman. Even though his own rage and the Lich King's whispers ordered Trag to kill Sulamm he couldn't, leaving him in trance because of his own spell. Trag left his tribe because of what they tried to do and because he could put them in danger.[1]
