Thank to  [Lieutenant's Insignia], Thrall was able to infiltrate the group [3] and identifie the leaders in order to kill them.[4] The destruction of the group although surprisingly[5] hasn't affect the rest of the Shadow Council.[6]

  • During the Founding of Durotar, a cult of orcish warlocks still loyal to the Burning Legion killed Morg Wolfsong and stole his shamanic artifacts before Rexxar disposed of them. They may have been from the Searing Blade.[10]
  • The Searing Blade may have been named in honor of an hypothetical "Searing Blade clan" or it may be a splinter group of the similarly named and aligned Burning Blade clan.
