The Dranosh'ar Blockade
Under construction during Cataclysm

The Dranosh'ar Blockade is a massive system of fortifications outside the Gates of Orgrimmar, stretching east-west in front of the northern mountains of Durotar. It reaches from Skull Rock to the east to Rocktusk Farm to the west. It was built after the end of the war against the Lich King. It is presumably named in honor of Dranosh Saurfang, who fell at the Battle of Angrathar the Wrathgate during the war in Northrend.

At the front of it, several siege weapons stand ready for defense. Behind these, archers of the Horde train for battle, while laborers build machinery and transport goods. The blockade has built around Jaggedswine Farm, and uses the hut there for storage. The hut just to the west of the front gate contains Gor the Enforcer and Shin Stonepillar, who have differing views on the leadership of the Horde.

During the Elemental Unrest, concerned citizens and the cultists of the Twilight's Hammer cult gathered near here.

During the Darkspear Rebellion, the area was filled with Garrosh Hellscream's Kor'kron loyalists and soldiers. The area was invaded by both, the Horde and Alliance revolutionaries, with the southern area becoming a staging camp for Vol'jin's forces. Since the fall of Garrosh's reign the site is filled with Dranosh'ar Laborers once again.

The Dranosh'ar Blockade was the launching point for the Horde forces sent to attack the Broken Shore. Accepting H [98] The Legion Returns puts the player into a phased version of the blockade, where the weather is rather rainy and gloomy. Ships, soldiers and siege weapons are being prepared by all the races of the Horde. Several things can be seen there:

After the battle for the Broken Shore, the rumors about Vol'jin's demise had already spread, and the area was filled with concerned citizens of Orgrimmar, Undercity denizens, Kezan citizens, Sen'jin villagers, Thunder Bluff natives, and Silvermoon citizens discussing and crying together.

Trivia

  • Even though the place was fortified and later attacked it hasn't been updated to reflect the war state, but it looks like exacly as before the Siege of Orgrimmar.
  • During Brewfest Wild Wolpertingers can be found throughout the eastern section of area to players that are drunk or wearing  [Synthebrew Goggles], which is a result of them gathering at the original Brewfest location.
