Deep within the desert canyons of Gorgrond, an arsenal of massive siege weapons built by the Blackrock clan is about to be unleashed upon the whole of Draenor.
- Warlords of Draenor: Journey into Draenor
Gorgrond is a new zone introduced with Warlords of Draenor located in north central Draenor. It is the home zone of Blackhand and his Blackrock clan of orcs who serve as the smiths of the Iron Horde. Giant steam vents dot the landscape, and the Blackrock cap these to use for the Iron Horde. The Blackrock Foundry raid will be located here.
Blizzard Official Intro
The industrial development of the Blackrock clan has left the once-glistening oasis of Gorgrond a desolate, rocky badland, its only remaining natural produce the steam that boils up from massive vents beneath the earth. Gorgrond has become the source of the Iron Horde’s arsenal—its foundries churn out weapons, armor, and torrents of smoke great enough to be seen from neighboring lands.
