Stonemaul clan (alternate universe)
- For the clan from the main universe, see Stonemaul clan.
|Theater of operations|
The Stonemaul clan is an ogre clan based in Gorgrond and led by Kor'gall, and years down the road Kor'gall, Greatson of Kor'gall. After their deaths and arrival in Azeroth, the Stonemaul joined the Horde by the will of Overlord Geya'rah.
Warlords of Draenor
They were known to have captured displayed draenei and forced the likes of Gladiator Akaani and Kash'drakor into fighting in their arena. In time, Akaani and Kash'drakor were able to escape but were forced to leave the others behind and were unable to mount a proper rescue attempt in fear that their allies and family would be instantly killed if they were recognized. Meanwhile, the Stonemaul were not content to let them go and sent their hardened slave hunters after them. However, they were approached by the garrison Commander, who agreed to aid them in their fight against the Stonemaul.
Learning that the slave hunters kept pendants magically tethered to the slaves, which allowed them to track them wherever they were and possibly killed them, the Commander retrieved said pendants. The commander also liberated Kash'drakor's son Nazgrel, Pitfighter Vaandaam, Y'kish, and Bruto, and killed Slavemaster Ok'mok. In the aftermath, Nazgrel reunited with his father, while the Commander, Vaandaam, Y'kish, and Bruto confronted and killed the Stonemaul Chieftain Kor'gall.
With the Stonemaul defeated, the gladiators joined the Commander in their fight against the Iron Horde.
Battle for Azeroth
In the years following the Burning Legion's defeat on Draenor the Stonemaul would be subdued by the Mag'har under the leadership of Warchief Grommash Hellscream. However every so often, one of their members would stir the embers of rebellion until the Mag'har got them back in line. By the time of the war between the Lightbound and the Mag'har the Stonemaul were led by Kor'gall, Greatson of Kor'gall. Unbeknownst to the Mag'har Kor'gall secretly defected to the Lightbound and called on the Stonemaul to rise up against the Mag'har.
Sometime during the Fourth War on Azeroth, Eitrigg traveled to the alternate Draenor to recruit the Mag'har orc clans that the Horde saved from Garrosh Hellscream's meddling and the Legion's corruption. With the aid of a Horde champion, Eitrigg was able to establish a connection between Azeroth and Draenor through the use of the shard of the in his possession. Upon arriving in Draenor, the pair was taken prisoner by the Mag'har. However, the pair was released after Warchief Hellscream recognized them as coming from Azeroth.
Upon receiving word of Kor'gall's uprising, Hellscream instructed Overlord Geya'rah, Eitrigg, and the champion with putting the threat down. Upon arriving at the Stonemaul Arena, the three discovered Kor'gall's call to arms had split the clan with the Stonemaul remaining loyal to the Mag'har and the rebels themselves calling themselves the Kor'gall clan. In the end, the rebellion was put down with the death of Kor'gall, Greatson of Kor'gall who revealed his allegiance to the Lightbound before his end.
Upon learning that the entire Lightbound army was en route to Beastwatch, the Horde and Mag'har held the line against them while other Mag'har and the Stonemaul were gathered by Lantresor of the Blade. During the battle, High Exarch Yrel herself appeared on the battlefield and offered the Mag'har one last chance to embrace the Light. As Warchief Hellscream and Lantresor charged against the Lightbound, Eitrigg activated the shard of the Vision of Time in his possession in order to return to Azeroth. After arriving to Azeroth, the Mag'har's new leader, Overlord Geya'rah pledged the Mag'har's loyalty to the Horde.
- Chieftains rule small bands of ogres with an iron fist, and are never short on challengers. The Stonemaul clan have notoriously high turnover rate in their leadership; judging from the layers of bloodstains this stone appears to have been instrumental in deposing multiple Stonemaul chieftains.

- The main universe clan's village in Dustwallow Marsh was originally home to a grand arena. The Stonemaul Arena in alternate Draenor indicates that arenas may be part of the Stonemaul clan's larger culture.
- During the early alpha, the Stonemaul ogres owned a Slave Camp, were said to be providing slaves and supplies to the Iron Horde, and were in talks with Orgrim Doomhammer about their contributions.
