The Armor of Mannoroth
|The subject of this article was removed from World of Warcraft in patch 4.0.3a.
On a plate mounted to a stone between the "forelegs" of the tree on which the armor is mounted is the following inscription:
These demon plates were worn by the creature that first cursed our people with bloodlust. By the heroic act of one brave orc - he was defeated. Mannoroth the Destructor is no more. Let these plates always remind us of how far we've come and how hard we fought to regain our honor.
Note that this plate is missing in the "instanced" version of Orgrimmar immediately preceding the Battle for the Undercity.
As of Patch 4.0.3a Mannoroth's remains have been removed from Orgrimmar. Garrosh Hellscream had the ends of Mannoroth's tusks fashioned into shoulder armor. This is shown by the fact that the skull, which hangs above Garrosh's new throne, had its tusks cut off.
The Armor's Support
The tree the armor is attached to seems to be dead. This may be how it was originally, or it may be due to the fel radiation that may be present on the armor, due to Mannoroth's time wearing it.
