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.[2]

During the War Against the Nightmare, Malfurion contacted Rokhan, but he was forced to lead a band of his people trapped outside the orc capital to safety. This indicates that he had returned to Durotar from Northrend.[3]

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 is mentioned by Witch Doctor Jin'Zil, he retold the history when Rokhan helped Rexxar in killing Serena Bloodfeather's older sister at the time of The Founding of Durotar.
  • Rokhan's beard from Warcraft 3 is missing in World of Warcraft as the troll model has no option for them. This also applies to his TCG art which is based directly off his model in World of Warcraft.
    • Its possible Rokhan has shaved in-story similar to Khadgar.


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.

As Rokhan was present at the Horde meeting in the Undercity (and had the same amount of HP as the faction leaders), he may be a representative and voice of the Darkspear tribe since Vol'jin's death, as the trolls haven't chosen another leader yet.[5]
