Crafted long ago under unknown circumstances on the orc homeworld of Draenor, the Doomhammer is a namesake relic passed down from father to son.[1] It was given to Thrall as a testament of faith and honor during the salvation of the orcs.[2] Although the hilt of the hammer has been replaced, the actual hammerhead itself has endured as a testament of the crafter's skill.

Background Edit

Despite its name, Doomhammer is a weapon of good, bringing doom to enemies and upholding the family's honor. The weapon can be traced to Telkar Doomhammer, father of Orgrim.[1]

Young Orgrim came to admire the hammer, knowing one day it would be his own.[1] In a meeting between Orgrim, Durotan, and prophet Velen, Orgrim told of a prophecy about the Doomhammer saying that "The last of the Doomhammer line will use it to bring first salvation and then doom to the orc people. Then it will pass into the hands of one who is not of the Blackrock clan, all will change again, and it will once again be used in the cause of justice."[1]

As is the nature of such prophecies, the orcs did indeed fall, all due to the manipulations of Gul'dan and Kil'jaeden. Orgrim, last of the Doomhammer line, passed the weapon on to his protégé Thrall, the one who redeemed the orcish race and completed the prophecy.

This greathammer is composed of solid granite on an oak handle. The granite is wrapped twice around with gold-studded leather.[3]

Appearance Edit

WCRTS logos 48x48
This article or section contains lore taken from the Warcraft RTS games (Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, and Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos) or their expansions, but also possibly including lore from their manuals and official bonus maps.

The appearance of Doomhammer has changed over time. When it was first depicted in the Warcraft II manual, it bore a jagged blade at the end and two spikes on each side. By the time it was passed onto Thrall in Lord of the Clans, these blades and spikes had been removed.

After the weapon was passed to Thrall, the wolf's-head symbol of the Frostwolf clan was added to the hammer's formerly plain head. This symbol can be seen in the cinematic where Thrall and Grom Hellscream battle Mannoroth (it most visible just before Thrall throws it at Mannoroth, when it glows brightly).

You may also see this version on the Thrall Series 2 action figure

The Doomhammer has a unique black metal appearance that resembles a Stormhammer. Within the game files there is an unused Doomhammer model, which resembles the hammer shown in the Warcraft III cinematic.

During the PTR for patch 3.3.3, Thrall used the Doomhammer model instead of the previous look-alike hammer. When the patch went live however, the hammer was replaced not with the cinematic model, but with yet another plain hammer. This new hammer has a longer handle but lacks any Frostwolf decoration.
