The crest of the New Horde
Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner
The New Horde is a collective entity founded by Thrall that originally consisted of the orcs of Orgrimmar, the trolls of the Darkspear Tribe, the tauren of Thunder Bluff, and the undead of the Forsaken. It has since grown into a major power in the world of Azeroth, and have since been joined by the Blood Elves of Quel'Thalas, the Goblins of the Bilgewater Cartel and the Huojin Pandaren.
The surviving orcs from the First, Second and Third Wars, who were freed from the internment camps of Lordaeron by Thrall, who led them across the Great Sea all the way to Kalimdor, where they built their new home in the desert crags of Durotar. Their capital is Orgrimmar, located in the northern part of Durotar.
- The Warsong Clan was one of the strongest and most violent clans of the Horde. Under Grom Hellscream, they had managed to evade capture long after the end of the Second War, and along with the Frostwolf Clan comprised the majority of the orcs fighting in the internment camps. After Grom's death and the death of his son, Garrosh, they are led by Gargok of the Warsong Outriders.
- The Frostwolf Clan, notable for being Thrall's clan. Only clan to not drink of the Blood of Mannoroth. Currently led by the shaman Drek'thar. Inhabits the Alterac Valley within the mountains of the same name.
- The Blackrock Clan, recently granted amnesty by the Warchief, are one of the newest additions to the ranks of the Horde. These Blackrock Clansmen were formerly led by Garrosh's bodyguard Malkorok. Their current leader is unknown.
- The Shattered Hand Clan, although small due to the majority of it's members having remaind in Draenor, plays an important role in the Horde, acting as scouts, spies and assassins. They have also began taking in other races such as trolls. The clan is led by the senior rogue trainer of Orgrimmar, Gordul.
- The Bleeding Hollow Clan, led by the Mag'har Jorin Deadeye, son of Kilrogg, is one of the most legendary clans of the Horde, named so because one of it's leaders, Kilrogg Deadeye, lost his right eye in battle.
- The Dragonmaw Clan, while weakened, remains one of the oldest and most infamous of Orcish Clans. This wayward Orc Clan maintains their trade of Dragon Riding for the Horde. While their Chieftain defected to aid Garrosh Hellscream in the Iron Horde, the majority of the Clan remains loyal to the New Horde. They are currently led by Chieftain Gorfax Angerfang.
- The Shadowmoon Clan. Small in number, the sole surviving members of an intact Shadowmoon Clan occupied Shadowmoon Village in the valley that bears the same name as their Clan. These Orcs work alongside the Kor'Kron Guard detachment in Outland and are perhaps the only Shadowmoon Orcs not lost to Magtheridon's Blood.
The Trolls were the first allies to the Orcish Horde and later to the New Horde, making them one of the oldest members of the Horde. However, during thier time, various tribes have left the Horde or have been under severe persecution, particularly under the rule of Warchief Garrosh Hellscream who discriminated the trolls severely. Since the Darkspear Rebellion and the overthrow of Warchief Hellscream, the trolls have became the leading faction within the Horde.
- The Darkspear Tribe was once one of the smallest troll tribes in Azeroth. During the creation of the New Horde, the Darkspear's island home was under heavy attack from naga and murlocs. The tribe was saved by the fleet of vessels of orcs which Thrall and taken from Lordaeron and were travelling across to found Durotar. The orcs aided the tribe in their defense and following the death of their leader, Sen'jin, offered the trolls a place by his side in the New Horde. Since then, the Darkspear Tribe has remained fiercely loyal to the New Horde that Thrall had forged many years ago.
- The Shatterspear Tribe is another troll tribe found within the New Horde. They were once a splinter group off the Gurubashi Tribe who found refuge with the Darkspear Tribe. The tribe is located in the northeastern regions of Darkshore in Shatterspear Village. During the Cataclysm, Garrosh Hellscream recruited the Shatterspear Tribe into the Horde. Their main leader is unknown.
- The Revantusk Tribe is proud to be the last tribe of Forest Trolls to still serve the Horde. The Revantusk Tribe fought alongside the Horde in the Second War along the other Tribes of Forest Trolls led by Zul'jin. When the Horde fell, the Forest Trolls abandoned their former allies in disgust, years later, however, the young Warchief Thrall sent emissaries to the Forest Troll Tribes. The Revantusks were the only to accept Thrall's offer of alliance. While formerly only allies of the Horde, since the Cataclysm, under the leadership of the Elder Torntusk, the Revantusk have joined the Horde in full.
The Confederation of Tauren Tribes were the first allies of the Horde found on Kalimdor. Led by the Bloodhoof Tribe of Tauren, the Tauren and the Orcs found a rare friend between the two races with a shared love of Shamanism and honorable combat. Immediate friends from the beginning, the Tauren officially joined the Horde shortly before the Battle of Mount Hyjal and are one of its strongest races, forming the backbone of the Horde on Kalimdor.
- The Bloodhoof Tribe is the founding Tribe of the Confederation of Tauren Tribes. Formerly led by Cairne Bloodhoof, the Bloodhoof Tribe has a long standing and well earned reputation for Honor, and peace through strength and vigilance. After years of wise Leadership, Cairne Bloodhoof was poisoned by Magatha Grimtotem and slain in a duel by Garrosh Hellscream. His position as High Chieftain and Chief of the Bloodhoof Tribe has been succeed by his son Baine Bloodhoof.
- The Ragetotem Tribe is a close ally of the Bloodhoof Tribe. Renowned for their Warriors and a legacy of legendary strength in battle, the Ragetotem Tribe has produced some of the finest warriors ever seen by the Tauren as well as the Horde. The Ragetotem tribe has sworn it's loyalty to the Horde alongside the Bloodhoof.
- The Winterhoof Tribe is an ancient and proud Tauren tribe famous for it's Tribal traditions of Herbalism and alchemists. Traditionally, the Winterhoof tribe produces medicine men and wise seers to guide their fellow Tauren toward the gifts of life through nature and the land.
The Forsaken Undead or simply Forsaken are a race and faction of intelligent undead who broke away from the Scourge and took control of much of the kingdom of Lordaeron. While comprised vastly of undead humans, the Forsaken are a diverse faction that include several different races at their biological core. However, they have all assumed their racial identity as "Forsaken," due to their shared goals and loyalties. The Forsaken once harbored no true loyalty to their brutish allies, but time and trials have sealed this relationship into one of mutual respect and need.
- Royal Apothecary Society
- Dark Rangers
The Blood ElvesEdit
The Kingdom of Quel'thalas once lived peacefully, albeit isolated, with the Alliance races of the Eastern Kingdoms. Following their Kingdom's near ruin in the Third War, the Kingdom of newly renamed Blood Elves found themselves spurned by their former allies and desperate for aid. The Blood Elves would find a place in the Horde after the impassioned pleas by Queen of the Forsaken, Sylvanas Windrunner, on behalf of her former people. Recent years have tested Blood Elven loyalties, but have proven themselves consistent Horde allies through and through. The Blood Elves are currently led by Regent-Lord Lor'themar Theron in absence of a rightful ruler to their Kingdom.
- Sunfury Army
The Bilgewater Cartel of Goblins existed as a neutral trade entity before a fateful encounter on the primordial Lost Isles created a pact of fellowship between the Goblins of Bilgewater and the Orcs of the Horde. Indebted to their new allies, the Goblins were welcomed into the Horde with open arms, and were given a Homeland to call their own in the newly conquered region of Azshara. The Bilgewater Goblins are currently led by Trade Prince Jastor Gallywix.
- Bilgewater Battalion
The Huojin PandarenEdit
The Pandaren of the Huojin Philosophy primarily originated upon the mysterious Wandering Isle, following the Pandaren Grandmaster of Huojin, Ji Firepaw. Pandaren from the Pandaria mainland would later join the Horde as they journeyed through the continent. The Huojin Pandaren are easily identified by a burning passion that dislikes waiting around for anything to happen. They are led by Ji Firepaw.
The nightborne are a powerful and mystical race of night elves who live in Suramar. Since the city was first separated from the rest of the world over 10,000 years ago, they have evolved by the Nightwell into an arcane-enhanced version of their former selves. After the death of Grand Magistrix Elisande and the end of the Third invasion of the Burning Legion, the shal'dorei wished to rejoin the world. They are led by First Arcanist Thalyssra.
- The Duskwatch
The Highmountain TaurenEdit
The highmountain tauren are found in the region of Highmountain on the Broken Isles. Divided into four tribes, they are the direct descendants of the tauren led by Huln Highmountain who assisted the Kaldorei Resistance during the War of the Ancients. During the War, Huln received a blessing from Cenarius, so that his people would forever have the demigod's favor, granting them the Horns of Eche'ro: moose-like antlers. They are led by Chieftain Mayla Highmountain.
