Background

WotLK This section concerns content exclusive to Wrath of the Lich King.

Lord Jaraxxus was summoned by Grand Warlock Wilfred Fizzlebang when the gnome attempted to summon a doomguard for the next challenge during the Trial of the Crusader. Jaraxxus killed Fizzlebang for his efforts, and next planned to kill the adventurer. Despite being accompanied by Mistresses of Pain and Felflame Infernals, the eredar was defeated, as requested by the Kirin Tor and the Council of Six.[1]

Legion This section concerns content exclusive to Legion.

Jaraxxus is one of the many demons summoned by Gul'dan in front of the Tomb of Sargeras to attack the forces of Azeroth in the climactic, disastrous battle at the Broken Shore.[2]

His location after the formation of the Legionfall is unknown.

Notes & trivia

  • Lord Jaraxxus is voiced by Jamieson Price.
  • Jaraxxus is one of few members of the Burning Legion to appear in Wrath of the Lich King, others including the nathrezim Mal'Ganis and Varimathras. Jaraxxus is also the only man'ari eredar to appear in Wrath.
  • Jaraxxus has become quite (in)famous among the playerbase for his voice files during the encounter, largely thanks to MrVoletron's remix (see above) and his extremely powerful Hearthstone card.
  • He appears as a legendary card for the Warlock class in Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Playing the card destroys the summoning warlock and replaces him with Lord Jaraxxus. The game then continues with the player now controlling Jaraxxus, as a significantly enhanced hero with formidable powers. The card is infamous, both for its devastating power and for the soundbites which accompany its use. His flavor text is the same quote he uses in the instance: "TRIFLING GNOME! YOUR ARROGANCE WILL BE YOUR UNDOING!!!!"
    • In the WoW TCG, the card artwork depicts Kurzon the False instead, an eredar hero.
    • In the Grand Tournament expansion, there is also a rare Warlock spell called Fist of Jaraxxus. In the TCG, the artwork is used to depict a blue-skinned Eredar Chaosbringer. The flavor text "* Not actually Jaraxxus' fist." may be a reference to that.
      • When asked about this, Ben Brode jokingly replied: "That's actually Jaraxxus. An Eredar Lord's skin changes color to match his mood. That's Chillaxxus."
  • Players can temporarily transform into Jaraxxus by using the  [Golden Hearthstone Card: Lord Jaraxxus] toy, which includes the ability to spout numerous of his quotes on command.
