Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan[1] was an orc of the Blackrock clan[1] unlike many blademasters who are from the Burning Blade clan.[2] He was the evil blademaster of his clan in charge of communications with their demon masters after they re-embraced their Demon-worshipping heritage.[1]


During the Third War the Blackrock clan invaded Strahnbrad and the prince Arthas Menethil proceeded to defend the town, while the paladin Uther the Lightbringer went to attack the Blackrock clan village. During the defense of the town the orcs sent prisoners to the Blackrock clan where the Blademaster of the Blackrock clan was located. After Arthas defeated the Slave Master he moved on to Uther's base,[3] who was waiting for two knights that were sent to parley with the Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan, but the blademaster killed the knights and sent just the horses in return.[1]

The Blademaster then sent orcs and jungle trolls to invade Uther's base. After some time he used the Mirror Image ability and sent his image to speak with Uther, he told him that the warlocks of the Blackrock clan had spoken and that the demons would rain from the sky and that the world would burn. Uther attacked the image but realized that it was an illusion. Meanwhile the real Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan sacraficed the captured prisoners to appease his demon masters.[1]

Arthas was angered by the Blademaster's actions and commanded his troops to slay the blademaster, before he had a chance to communicate with the Burning Legion. After a battle, Arthas killed the Blademaster of the Blackrock Clan, but the orcs hadn't been defeated. In the end, it was a sound victory, with the Blademaster dead, the Alliance went home,[1] leaving many orcs still alive and led by Jubei'Thos.[4]
