Mag'har Tabard.jpg

The Mag'har are survivors: Survivors of a fallen dynasty; Survivors of the Red Pox; Survivors of a shattered world...
Jorin Deadeye

The Mag'har is a faction of the remaining brown orcs[1][2][3] of different orc clans that had escaped the corruption of the Burning Legion. Thrall recruited them with open arms into the New Horde where they taught the orcs of their past and culture.

"Mag'har" is the Orcish word for "uncorrupted".[4]


The main village of Garadar

Years prior to the Blood Pact with Mannoroth,[5] a virulent plague known as the "red pox" spread among the orcish clans, and Geyah established a quarantine village in Nagrand, naming it Garadar[6] after Garad.[7] For reasons unclear, those that were quarantined managed to avoid the corruption that plagued even their parents and the rest of the world. The orcs, and Nagrand, come to be referred to as "mag'har" — which in Orcish means, literally, "uncorrupted".[4]

Members of the Mag'har have never been corrupted by either Mannoroth or Magtheridon, and thus remained untouched by the Blood Curse. Unlike their former clanmates who live in the ruins of their once-mighty holds, the Mag'har is made up of members of different orc clans who escaped corruption. The current leader of the Mag'har, venerable Greatmother Geyah, is an old and wise orc, yet she has recently fallen extremely ill. Garrosh Hellscream, son of the mighty Grom Hellscream, serves as the Mag'har's military chief, aided by Jorin Deadeye, son of the venerable chieftain of the Bleeding Hollow clan, Kilrogg Deadeye. Dranosh Saurfang is also a Mag'har.

After their rediscovery by Thrall, the Mag'har joined the new Horde. Garrosh was the first Mag'har to set foot on Azeroth and Orgrimmar, though many then followed. A number of Mag'har joined the subsequent events of Azeroth - the war against the Lich King and the great war against the Alliance during the times of Cataclysm and the Invasion of Pandaria. When the Horde rebelled from Garrosh's reign, many Mag'har could be found in Orgrimmar and the Underhold loyal to Garrosh.


The architecture of the mag'har seems to be based off the buildings from Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. This suggests that during the First War, orcs used similar building types to those back at home on Draenor. However, over time, their buildings become more and more "warlike" and less nomadic. Those back on Draenor/Outland never changed their building style.


After completing the quest H [62] A Spirit Guide in Hellfire Peninsula, Horde characters become neutral with the Mag'har and are able to interact with them. (Before completing this quest, they are unfriendly with them.)

Neutral Friendly Honored Revered Exalted Rep Notes
500  [Obsidian Warbeads] x10
Quests ~1,000
Mobs 11 Burning Blade Ruins
11 Kil'sorrow Fortress
11 Northwind & Southwind Clefts
2 Sunspring Post
11 Laughing Skull Ruins
11 Warmaul Hill

All repeatable quests and mobs will give reputation all the way to exalted.

Characters trying to simultaneously earn reputation with the Mag'har and Consortium may want to focus on killing ogres in Nagrand, which award 10 Mag'har reputation per kill, and saving the  [Obsidian Warbeads] for Consortium turn-ins, which are good for Consortium reputation from friendly through exalted.

Characters trying to simultaneously earn reputation with the Mag'har and the Aldor may want to focus on killing orcs at Kil'sorrow Fortress in southeastern Nagrand as they drop Marks of Kil'Jaeden in addition to awarding 10 Mag'har reputation per kill.


Quests for the Mag'har begin in Hellfire Peninsula with the quest The Assassin from Thrallmar. This quest will lead you to a small Mag'har outpost north of Hellfire Citadel. Once in Nagrand, players will find the main Mag'har city, Garadar. The city holds most of the remaining quests that will reward Mag'har reputation.

Note: To talk to most of the NPCs in Garadar, you must have completed the quest chain starting with The Assassin up until the quest A Spirit Guide. Alternately you can do the Garadar quest The Impotent Leader. The Garadar flight master belongs to the Thrallmar faction, so you can always talk to him.

Repeatable quest

You can turn in 10  [Obsidian Warbeads] in Garadar for 500 Mag'har reputation. The most popular areas to farm the  [Obsidian Warbeads] are the Northwind Cleft and Southwind Cleft caves in the Halaani Basin.

For information regarding Obsidian Warbeads drop rates, check out Wowhead.

Be aware that the  [Obsidian Warbeads] are also used for Consortium reputation, so think carefully on where you want reputation before handing them in.


Killing any ogre and most murkblood mobs will yield 10 Mag'har reputation, Murkblood Scavenger mobs only give 2 reputation.
