Pilt:Warchief victory W1.JPG

The Warchief, or War Chief, is the military leader of the Orcish Horde, similar to a king or Supreme Allied Commander among humans. The post is an ancient tradition, but was forgotten during the civil wars that plagued Draenor following the defeat of the Draenei. After the Horde crossed into Azeroth, Gul'dan revived the office to gain control of the orcs. On Draenor, Ner'zhul took the title in the event Gul'dan should ever return. The Warchief is now the title of the Horde's supreme leader, though his duties no longer include simply war.

In Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, it is a rank the player can achieve.

It was revealed in the March 2012 Mists of Pandaria Press Event that Garrosh will be the final boss for the Mists of Pandaria Mists of Pandaria expansion, as both factions recognize his growing instability and lust for power.[2] This means a new Warchief will be appointed and most assume Thrall will return, but Blizzard Entertainment Zarhym has hinted that the new Warchief may not be who everyone expects.[3]

Other Warchiefs Edit

Other organizations have warchiefs as well. At present, there are two individuals who use the title in World of Warcraft — one in Azeroth, the other in Outland. Both are enslaved by a power greater than themselves.

    I know what was said during the press tour, but don't be so sure yet that you know who the next warchief will be. The information provided during the press tour was... not entirely accurate.
