This article contains lore taken from Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

A lok'vadnod is a prestigious song composed for a specific individual. It is commonly seen as the greatest honor the orcs can grant to an individual. Great chieftains, shamans, and warchiefs are the usual candidates for lok'vadnod, and Orgrim Doomhammer, Grom Hellscream, Broxigar and Durotan have all been granted lok'vadnod. Thrall does not have one in his name, as lok'vadnod are composed after the tale of a hero is finished, when they die.

It is not known how many non-orcs in total have been honored with a lok'vadnod, but to date, only one human has been granted one: Taretha Foxton, the childhood friend of Warchief Thrall.
