Xoroth is one of the fiery, chaotic worlds belonging to the Burning Legion. The domain of Lord Hel'nurath, the "stable-keeper", Xoroth is a world of infernal heat and scorched bones[2] home to the infernal dreadsteeds and wrathsteeds that serve as mounts to the nathrezim.[3]

Background

The people of Xoroth did not join the Legion willingly. They were enslaved, and the planet Xerrath was destroyed by the demons as a show of power.[4]

During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, Xorothian Fel Knights came through portals from Xoroth to face the Armies of Legionfall on the Broken Shore. They were led by Lord Hel'nurath, followed by Xorothian Cultists comprised of Azerothian races.

The First of the Black Harvest and his Council opened a portal to Xoroth, killed Arax'ath and enslaved his wrathsteed mount.[1]

In Antorus, the Burning Throne on Argus, Portal Keeper Hasabel opened a portal to Xoroth to use its fiery powers against the Azerothian forces.

Notes

Speculation

Questionmark-medium.png
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.
