Chieftain Nek'rosh Skullcrusher is a level 26 named orc found in the Wetlands [53, 53]. Usually guarded by 5 orcs, he is the target of Alliance 15 [32] Defeat Nek'rosh.

Chieftain Nek'rosh is the leader of a subgroup of the Dragonmaw clan in Azeroth. All Dragonmaw orcs belong to Rend's force, the Dark Horde. Nek'rosh leads one band far to the north, in the Wetlands.[1]


The Dragonmaws on Azeroth are now led by Chieftain Nek'rosh, son of Nekros Skullcrusher,[2] former second-in-command to the chieftain Zuluhed the Whacked of the Dragonmaw clan years ago. Nekros used powerful magic to control the red dragons, but when that magic failed him, Nekros was eaten by the dragonqueen[3][4] and his son has vowed revenge against the dragons who killed his father.[2] The Dragonmaws were fiercely hunted for this; what few remained fled from Grim Batol and into the mountains east of Whelgar's Excavation Site.[2]

Now they've regained strength, and have an encampment northeast of Menethil Harbor. Nek'rosh has built catapults and aims to lay siege to Menethil. And with the fighting in Dun Algaz, they would be effectively blocked from reinforcements.[5]

With the Dragonmaw joining the Horde, it is possible that he survives and still leads the clan. However it is more likely that he is dead ending the hold Nekros and Zuluhed have held over the clan and allowing it to return to the old ways. However this was proven false and Overlord Mor'ghor will be leading the Dragonmaw in Cataclym (until he is succeded by Warlord Zaela
