Gorgonnash was a high-ranking member of the Burning Legion who served under Gul'dan during the Battle on the Broken Shore. He was defeated by the combined efforts of Alliance and Horde adventurers during a late stage in the siege, during which he was summoned personally by Gul'dan to reinforce the demon ranks.
Despite his earlier defeat, Gorgonnash was re-summoned by elements of the Legion in order to aid their forces in retaining the Broken Shore. The Pit Lord was again slain by adventurers, however.
