Warlords of Draenor EditThis section concerns content exclusive to Warlords of Draenor.
Drek'Thar was captured by the Iron Horde and was tied above the fire together with Exarch Maladaar, but they were rescued by adventurers. Drek'Thar sensed the presence of Durotan's brother Ga'nar and asked the adventurers to free him as well. When the Dark Portal collapsed, they started running toward the ships when they noticed Grommash Hellscream. Ga'nar wanted to kill Grommash, but Drek'Thar prevented him from doing so. When they reached the ships, they sailed to Frostfire Ridge.
In Frostfire, Drek'Thar reunited with Durotan. Soon after, Durotan and Ga'nar killed Fenris Wolfbrother, the chieftain of the Thunderlord clan. The Iron Horde wanted to avenge their fallen ally, they reached the Frostfire through the Thunder Pass. Thrall, Draka, Durotan, Ga'nar and Drek'Thar wanted to stop the Iron Horde from annihilating the Frostwolves. Drek'Thar tried to summon lightning and collapsed the cliff on the Iron Horde, but he needed more time. Ga'nar offered his life for the time Drek'Thar needed.
