Rokhan (pronounced ROH-kawn)[5] is a shadow hunter of the Darkspear tribe, said by Thrall himself to be the Horde's best scout. He once assisted Rexxar to halt Admiral Proudmoore's campaign and notably participated in the war in the alternate Draenor. After the death of Vol'jin, he was considered a potential public face for the Darkspear trolls, though they had not found a new leader yet.[4]

Rokhan became instrumental to the winning over of the Zandalari Empire to ally with the Horde, becoming personal friends with the princess, and later queen, Talanji. When the Horde became divided between Varok Saurfang's revolutionaries and Sylvanas Windrunner's loyalists, Rokhan stood by Saurfang's side. Following Saurfang's death and abandonment of the Horde by Sylvanas, the Horde reunited and elected to form a council style leadership over choosing a new Warchief. Despite his private doubts Rokhan, with his tribe's faith and the encouragement of the Horde leaders, became the new Chieftain of the Darkspear tribe and their representative on the council.

Rokhan in Warcraft III
Rokhan in Warcraft III

Formerly led by Sen'jin on the Darkspear Islands, Rokhan joined Thrall and his Horde when he saved them from the Sea Witch and led them to Kalimdor. After the Battle of Mount Hyjal, the trolls settled on the Echo Isles off the coast of Durotar, but Rokhan remained in Orgrimmar as a scout for Thrall. When Rexxar came to Orgrimmar with Mogrin's report, Thrall asked Rokhan to accompany the beastmaster's trek through the wilds.

Rokhan and Rexxar found humans on the coast of Durotar after they got to the observatory in Gar'thok's outpost, and when they reported to Thrall, he sent them back to find the outpost ruined, and the humans quite hostile.

Rokhan began to worry about his own people on the Echo Isles and thought that perhaps they should come to the mainland to avoid any danger. Thrall agreed and sent Rokhan and his band to the Echo Isles to warn Vol'jin and see them off the island.

After destroying the battleships that blocked their path and lighting signal fires for the outlying village, Rokhan and Rexxar were sent to a summit in Thrall's place. When they were ambushed, Thrall, hoping to finish things peacefully, sent Rokhan and his friends to Theramore Island to secretly parlay with Jaina Proudmoore.

With Jaina's aid, they discovered the invaders were led by Jaina's own father Admiral Daelin Proudmoore, who was determined to wipe out the Horde in Durotar. Rokhan battled alongside Rexxar as they hastily traveled around the Barrens enlisting aid from their allies. Finally, the human and orc forces clashed in a titanic battle at Tidefury Cove, and when the orcs emerged victorious, they chased the humans back to Theramore. Rokhan helped to lead the raid on Theramore and battled Daelin Proudmoore's elite forces beside Rexxar.

Cycle of Hatred

Tensions remained high between the orcs of Durotar and the humans of Theramore. War nearly broke out once again, due to the scheming of a minor demon Zmodlor and a few Burning Blade cultists. Rokhan was still in Thrall's service as a scout - his finest - and made a sudden appearance to warn the Warchief of reinforcements to Northwatch Hold on the border between human and orc territory. He is described as having a surprisingly gentle face for a troll, with kind eyes.[6]

Wrath of the Lich King

Rokhan at Dragon's Fall.

During the war against the Lich King, Rokhan could be found in a small camp named Dragon's Fall in the Dragonblight. As the Scourge was raising frostwyrms to send against Horde forces at the Wrathgate, Rokhan and his dragon hunters were tasked with destroying them. Though most of the frostwyrms were easily dealt with the undead dragon Sarathstra was proving to be problematic.[7] After receiving reinforcements, Rohkan was able to call Sarathstra down and the Horde was quick to kill frostwyrm.[8]

Having returned to Durotar, Rokhan was forced to lead a band of his people trapped outside of Orgrimmar to safety during the War Against the Nightmare. He was contacted by Malfurion Stormrage to do battle against the Nightmare Lord but the troll was more focusing on safeguarding his people.[9]

The Iron Tide

When the Dark Portal turned red, Rokhan helped stop the Ironmarch invasion in Blasted Lands and was located in the Shattered Landing along with the remnants of the now-occupied Okril'lon Hold and the Horde soldiers. He sent the goblin Scout Pazaztick to scout the Dark Portal but Pazaztick was killed in the act. Rokhan also sent adventurers to kill some Iron Horde executioners and free their prisoners.

Rokhan in Frostwall.

Rokhan appears in Frostwall commander's garrison in Frostfire Ridge as a member of the Azerothian expedition to Draenor where he oversees various actions and events throughout the continent. He was present in Talador to participate in the fall of Warlord Azuka Bladefury.

He put together a plan for striking at the heart of Everbloom Wilds in order to draw the Botani back into the jungles of Gorgrond, giving the Horde room to maneuver around them.[10] He requested the rescue of friendly troops that have been taken prisoner in the main Bloodmaul compound at Stonefury Cliffs by the Bloodmaul ogres.[11] He was concerned at the Shadowmoon clan's proximity to key choke points leading into Shadowmoon Valley, and put out a request to thin their forces.[12] When some of Horde's best scouts went missing in the vicinity of the lost ruins of Veil Anzu, Rokhan requested any available resources be dispatched to identify the threat and see if any of the men yet remain alive within the ruins.[13]


Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

When a Horde player reaches Prestige Rank 2, Rokhan can be found in the Undercity alongside other notable leaders of the Horde. During H [100] A Royal Audience, he is present at the ceremony hosted by Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner that congratulates the character for their battles against the Alliance, following their receiving of the  [High Warlord's Medal of Valor] from the Warchief, as well as an artifact appearance.

Following the creation of the Orgrimmar Embassy, Rohkan can be found within the building, seemingly representing the Darkspear tribe. During the speech of Sylvanas Windrunner about recruiting new allies, she referred to the people present as the "leaders of the Horde".[3]

Battle for Azeroth

Talanji and Rokhan in Nazmir.
Rokhan and allies.

Rokhan was part of the Horde's strike team to free Princess Talanji and Zul of the Zandalari from the Stormwind Stockade. While on the mission they also encountered Varok Saurfang, who had recently been captured at the Battle for Lordaeron. While Varok refused to go with them, they did accomplish their mission to free Zul and Talanji before fleeing the city.[14]

Later, he joined Talanji's Expedition in Nazmir on Zandalar.[15] He personally led the efforts in converting the nearby Zul'jan Ruins into the expedition's main outpost within Nazmir and then joined the fight against the blood trolls within the region.[16] He conferred with Talanji in determining the best way to attack the blood trolls and agreed with her plan to call upon the local loa for aid. Following the death of Hir'eek, who was corrupted by G'huun, and a bargain being reached with Bwonsamdi, Rokhan would arrive at the Zo'bal Ruins and be informed of the recent events.[17] While Talanji joined with the local Tortollan Seekers in seeking out Torga, Rokhan journeyed on ahead and established a base within Gloom Hollow.

When he received word that his reinforcements, the Gob Squad, were captured he called for heroes of the Horde to rescue them. Once the Expedition and Horde forces were secured, Rokhan led his forces back to Zul'jan Ruins in preparation for the assault on Zul'Nazman. He subsequently participated in the assault on the blood troll capital that saw to the death of Grand Ma'da Ateena and Taloc being blasted into Uldir itself. With the battle finished, Rokhan journeyed to discover where Titan Keeper Hezrel was. After finding the Titan Keeper, Rokhan learned about the Underrot and upon deciding to return to the Zul'jan Ruins, Rohkan would request adventurers to inform Baine Bloodhoof of the events within Nazmir[18] and aid Titan Keeper Hezrel in his mission. During the battles within the Underrot, Hezrel would be killed but his mission in destroying the Unbound Abomination would be completed. Upon learning of the events within the Underrot, Rohkan remarked that the abomination's death was a good thing, but was saddened by the death of Hezrel. He expressed his fears that despite that the conflict wasn't over due to the fact Taloc still needed to be taken down and expressed his hope that G'huun would remain sealed.[19]

When the Blood Gate came under attack by the blood trolls, Rokhan led a strike team from Nazmir into Zuldazar to cut off the blood trolls. However, during the fighting, he became trapped behind enemy lines and was subsequently rescued by Speaker of the Horde.[20] Working together the pair were able to breach the lines and secure the pathway for Talanji's own attack on the blood trolls attacking the Blood Gate.[21]

When the Echo Isles came under attack by Zalazane who had returned as a lich, Rokhan returned home to aid in the defense and Talanji accompanied him.[22] It was eventually discovered that Vol'jin's spirit was lost, which deeply concerned Bwonsamdi. He tasked Rokhan, Master Gadrin, and Talanji with performing a seance to find the lost Warchief.[23] With the presence of his old teacher and friend, Vol'jin appeared, not to reveal what happened to him, but to say that the Shadowlands were in turmoil: G'hunn's influence was spreading without the Grand Seal, and trolls of the past and present alike cried out for justice against the Blood God. The time to end G'hunn was nigh and Vol'jin requested they use his glaive to stab G'hunn's corpse to draw his blood and show all of Zandalar that the old god is dead.[24] Talanji then accompanied a team of Horde adventurers into the Underrot and Uldir to defeat G'huun and Rokhan was present when Talanji presented their victory over G'hunn to the Zandalari Empire.

He is one of the Horde commanders during the Battle for Stromgarde. Rokhan's forces are supplemented by fellow Darkspear shadow hunters.

Tides of Vengeace

Rokhan captured by Blademaster Telaamon.

During the assault on Stormsong Valley, Rokhan reunited with Rexxar in order to defend Warfang Hold against the Alliance. He also participated in the assault on Drustvar by conducting a ritual with Master Gadrin and Madam Konawla to imbue adventurers with the ancient powers of trolls in order to fight against the Alliance.[25] As the assault on Nazmir neared its end, he ordered the death of Captain Beamwind.[26]

In preparation for their attack on Dazar'alor, the Alliance tricked the Horde into thinking that were moving to attack through Nazmir by creating an unnatural fog with the Abyssal Scepter. It was Jaina's hope that with the Zandalari focused on Nazmir, the harbor would be open for an attack by the Alliance fleet.[27] As the Alliance attacked the Blood Gate, Rokhan, in a heroic stand, held off the Alliance and their champions before being captured. Determined to rescue the shadow hunter, the Horde struck against the Alliance and succeed in freeing Rokhan from his imprisonment by Blademaster Telaamon.[28]

Rokhan as part of Talanji's personal entourage.

After his liberation, Rokhan joined the Horde and Zandalari in striking back against the Alliance. He united with Talanji and the Speaker of the Horde in heading towards Zalamar to do battle against the Alliance.[29] Amidst the fighting, Rokhan was tasked with discovering the exact location of the Alliance general, who is revealed to be none other than his former captor Blademaster Telaamon.[30] After determining his exact location Rokhan reunited with his allies and aided them in killing Telaamon.[31] With the blademaster dead, Rokhan and the Speaker regrouped with Talanji and Rakera to put an end to Alliance operations. Following the destruction of the Abyssal Scepter, Rokhan and his allies learned that Telaamon and his forces were a bait to lure them away from Dazar'alor in order to weaken the city's defenses.[32] Realizing that the city was in danger, the combined Zandalari and Horde army rushed back to defend the city, with Rohkan among them.[33]

Within the Orgrimmar Embassy, Rokhan revealed to the Speaker of the Horde that after everything the Horde and Zandalari have been through together, the Zandalari belonged in the Horde and that Talanji has invited them to witness her coronation.[34] Rokhan and the Speaker of the Horde were granted a special honor as part of her personal entourage, escorting her to the temple of the Loa.[35] Riding with Talanji in special garb atop a Zandalari Direhorn, he later attended Talanji's coronation standing alongside the leaders of the Horde.[36]

After the resurrection of Derek Proudmoore, Rokhan took part in the ritual to contact Vol'jin at Baine's request, as the tauren chieftain sought to learn who urged Vol'jin to name Sylvanas Windrunner Warchief of the Horde.[37] When Baine was arrested and Zelling was killed for their parts in freeing Derek from Horde captivity, Rokhan knew Sylvanas' actions would only throw more fuel onto the fire of the Horde's disunity even though they needed to stick together against the Alliance.

Rise of Azshara

In order to help Thrall and Varok Saurfang save Baine Bloodhoof from execution, he gave them a totem of stealth feeling that they would be needing it and promised to keep an eye out for them.[38] As Sylvanas Windrunner and Varok Saurfang called their loyalists for battle, Rokhan answered Saurfang's call.[39] Following Saurfang's death and Sylvanas's betrayal of the Horde, Rokhan was among the Horde heroes who attended Saurfang's funeral.[40] The shadow hunter reflected that he never had a good feeling about the war and simply tried to make the best of a bad situation. He also admitted that he was wrong to have thought that Sylvanas had the Horde's best interest at heart and expressed his belief that he should have done more for Saurfang.

Visions of N'zoth

Instead of selecting a new Warchief, the Horde elected to form a council style leadership. Knowing that the Darkspear were looking at Rokhan for guidance, the other leaders of the Horde approached him to lead his people. However, Rokhan was uncertain, though Baine was able to convince the troll that he had proved himself in Zuldazar and Stromgarde, and that as the Darkspear had faith in him, so did Baine. Recognizing Baine's words as true, Rokhan took his place as the new Chieftain of the Darkspear tribe and their representative on the council.

Notes and trivia

  • Rokhan has three different appearances. His typical appearance is that of his armor he was given in Wrath of the Lich King. During the Battle for Stromgarde and inconsistently during the defense of Zuldazar from the blood troll invasions, Rokhan was given a similar but new appearance that wore a full set of armor, boasting an  [Orgrimmar Tabard] and unique belt. His final unique appearance only showed up during the Zandalari allied race recruitment questline, where he wears an entirely unique set of armor with the Honorbound tabard.
  • Rokhan has little patience for goblins and their antics.[41]
  • He can sense mojo in objects.[42]
  • Rokhan is mentioned by his friend Witch Doctor Jin'Zil, who remembers when Rokhan helped "that crazy mok'nathal" kill Serena Bloodfeather's older sister at the time of the Founding of Durotar.[43]
  • Rokhan's beard from Warcraft III is missing in World of Warcraft as the default troll model has no option for them. This also applies to his TCG art, which is based directly off his World of Warcraft model.
    • It is possible Rokhan simply shaved off his beard at some point, similar to Khadgar.
  • During the Battle for Azeroth beta, Rokhan was originally a champion. He was replaced by Shadow Hunter Ty'jin.
  • Rokhan is voiced by Abubakar Salim in Battle for Azeroth.[44]
