The colossal Kodo Beasts of the Kalimdor plains proved to be valued allies of the Orcish Horde. The mighty beasts were charged with carrying the Orcs’ pounding war drums into battle. The huge kodos, serving as symbols of Orcish might and valor, also use their enormous size and strength to aid the Orcs in battle.
While their damage output is low and their unarmored armor type means that they quickly take damage, Kodo Beasts are a useful addition to Horde armies thanks to their War Drums aura. Their Devour ability also helps even the odds in battle by temporarily removing enemy units from play, even killing them if given enough time.
