Rexxar is a half-ogre / half-orc found in Gorgrond and Shadowmoon Valley.

History

In Gorgrond he shows up to fight the Iron Horde in Sulfur Basin. He and Nisha were divided and the orcs captured the raven. After an adventurer tried to release Nisha from the Iron Horde chains, was caught by a gronn. Rexxar jumped on the gronn, killed it and started tending to Nisha's wounds. He returned with her to his camp and caught a Laughing Skull orc - Bony Xuk / draenei - Rangari Erdanii. After the adventurer vouched for the orc / draenei Rexxar ordered to eliminate the Iron Horde threat. After Nisha is healed he assists the adventurers in discovering the Iron Horde and goren's true cause of attacks - finding artifacts that can subjugate magnaron. Eventually the half orc and adventurer stops the Iron Horde by killing Captain Brak and taking  [Heart of the Magnaron]. Rexxar and Nisha are ultimately seen helping Draka / Yrel against Goc and Commander Gar in the Iron Approach. Rexxar is seen in Highpass / Beastwatch admiring the commander's combat and calls him a friend.

Later, he assists the heroes in a series of quests beginning with B [100] Garrison Campaign: Darktide Roost where he fights against the Iron Horde's Blackfuse Company and eventually releases a rylak matriarch.

Trivia

  • Rexxar is the only mok'nathal to make an appearance in Warlords of Draenor. However, the clan must exist somewhere in order for Rexxar to exist.
  • Since the alternate Rexxar uses the same model as his main universe counterpart, his armor used to have Horde symbols, creating an inconsistency as he is not part of the Horde in the alternate universe. This was fixed with his model update in patch 8.0.1.
    • However, 8.0.1 also gave him the same on-click quotes as the main universe Rexxar, which have him say "For the Horde" as a farewell quote.
  • The designer who created the alternate Rexxar's pets was inspired to do so by the Hearthstone card Animal Companion, a hunter spell which summons one of the main universe Rexxar's pets (chosen at random from Huffer, Leokk, and Misha) as a minion. The designer told then-Hearthstone Game Director Ben Brode that if the Hearthstone team ever wanted to make an upgraded Animal Companion with different minions, they could use some of the pets he created for the alternate Rexxar. Brode was amused and later cited this as an example of the close relationship between the World of Warcraft and Hearthstone teams, with World of Warcraft developers creating things hoping they'll be made into Hearthstone cards while the Hearthstone developers design new characters hoping they'll be put into World of Warcraft.[1]
  • Rexxar is voiced by Matthew Mercer.
