The slain grunt Mogrin.

"Come, you mongrels! Taste the steel of Mogrin's axe!"

Mogrin was an orc warrior and faithful messenger for the Horde, known to Warchief Thrall by name. He was entrusted with a crucial report to be delivered to Thrall in Orgrimmar, but was ambushed by quilboars and received a fatal wound, his stomach split open. He found himself being aided by Rexxar, one of the Mok'Nathal, and the surviving Quilboar fled. Mogrin was devastated as he had failed his mission and would die without honor. Rexxar, however, volunteered to deliver the message for him, for the sake of honor. Mogrin was grateful but was unable to tell Rexxar any additional information before dying in the wilds of Durotar.[1]


  • "Damned cowards!"
  • "I know... This would be a good death, if not for my failure... I was to deliver... a crucial report to my chieftain in the lands below. I have failed him... I have lost my honor."
  • "Aka'Magosh warrior... Thank you. Seek out the city of Orgrimmar - find Warchief Thrall... Tell him..."


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.

The information contained in Mogrin's message to Thrall may have pertained to Admiral Proudmoore's impending invasion of Durotar. After it is delivered, Thrall and his advisors spoke of vague human activity in Durotar, supporting this. However, Thrall seemed caught completely off-guard by the scale and source of the human incursions.

He referred to Warchief Thrall as his chieftain, which may mean that Mogrin was a member of the Frostwolf clan, which Thrall was previously the chieftain of. Drek'Thar, whom Thrall later made chieftain again, had not yet returned from Kalimdor to the Frostwolf orcs' home in the Alterac Mountains. This is presumably when Drek'Thar was given the mantle of leadership once again.
