Xoroth is one of the fiery, chaotic worlds belonging to the Burning Legion. It is home to the infernal dreadsteeds and wrathsteeds, mounts to the nathrezim. The finest of these belong to Lord Hel'nurath, the "stable-keeper", described as his domain.[1] It is a world of infernal heat and scorched bones.[2]

The people of Xoroth did not join the Legion willingly. During the course of the planet's enslavement, another world was destroyed as a show of power.[3]

During the Third invasion of the Burning Legion, portals to Xoroth open on the Broken Shore and eredar known as Xorothian Fel Knights come through to face the Armies of Legionfall. Xorothian Cultists comprised of Azerothian races can be found on the Shore with them. Lord Hel'nurath is also present.

In Antorus, the Burning Throne on Argus, Portal Keeper Hasabel opens a portal to Xoroth while fighting heroes. Its main feature is fire.


The following inhabitants of Xoroth have been encountered in Azeroth. Some can be found emerging from portals within Mazthoril, some are on the Broken Shore, and others were previously summoned in Dire Maul as part of the warlock quest chain to acquire a [Dreadsteed] mount.

Given that Xoroth is the home of the dreadsteeds, it is possible that Xoroth is the world where the dreadlords established their citadel (seen in The Dreadlords Convene, an interlude from the Undead campaign in Reign of Chaos). However, given the number of worlds consumed by the Legion, the Citadel could reside on another nathrezim world — possibly Nathreza, the now-destroyed nathrezim homeworld, or even Argus.
