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.[3] It is a world of infernal heat and scorched bones.[4]

Background

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.[5]

Several years after the second invasion of the Burning Legion, in Dire Maul West, adventurers opened a portal to Xoroth. Despite the intervention of Lord Hel'nurath and several Xorothian demons, the warlock managed to capture a Xorothian Dreadsteed.[6]

During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, portals to Xoroth opened on the Broken Shore and eredar known as Xorothian Fel Knights came through to face the Armies of Legionfall. Xorothian Cultists comprised of Azerothian races could be found on the Shore with them. Lord Hel'nurath was also present.

The First of the Black Harvest and his Council opened a portal to Xoroth, killed Arax'ath and enslaved his mount.[7]

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

Inhabitants

Most of the following inhabitants of Xoroth have been encountered in Azeroth. Some could be found emerging from portals within Mazthoril, some were 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.
