Location

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]

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.[2]

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 when she reaches 90% health.

Inhabitants

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.

Speculation

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

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.
