Oshu'gun, said to be the largest diamond in the known universe by Gezhe in the original timeline, is located in southwestern Nagrand. Oshu'gun is orcish for "Mountain of Spirits". It is a great, white monolith that dominates the landscape, and instead of being jagged and irregular like other mountains, it is smooth and triangular. Deep within the massive crystal dwells a naaru named K'ure, accompanied by the ancient orc ancestor, the spirits of orcs who have passed on. Oshu'gun is in fact a naaru Dimensional Ship, and was a vessel K'ure used to help the draenei flee Argus thousands of years ago, traversing the Twisting Nether until it crash-landed on Draenor approximately two centuries before the First War.

Oshu'gun is invariably linked to K'ure. Around the time Oshu'gun landed, K'ure fell ill, rendering the ship useless.

In the time following this event, the orcs came to revere the enormous gem. It became a sacred place and every year the orcs would gather there to celebrate the spring and autumn festival. The shaman would commune with their honored ancestors (who, unknown to the shaman, came to dwell within Oshu'gun to commune with K'ure). Recognizing the orcish reverence, the draenei retreated from the mountain. It was the center of orcish culture in Nagrand unless Garrosh has changed something since his return to Draenor, since his clan, the Warsong live there and it is most likely his first place to return.

As in the original timeline, it is presumed K'ure was weakened by Oshu'gun's crash and has been trapped within the ship for centuries. As his holy energies bled away over the centuries, a void slowly grew in his place — devouring the souls of those nearby. K'ure watched helplessly as generations of orc spirits were consumed by this vortex. However, this may not be true in the alternate timeline created by Garrosh and his unknown temporal benefactor.

The novel Rise of the Horde, which was developed prior to the Bc icon expansion, presents a slightly different nuance of K'ure's relation to Oshu'gun. Most likely, though, this story may not apply to new Draenor, as it involves the participation of the Burning Legion that has not yet come to the world in Warlords-Logo-Small Warlords of Draenor.

Unless the story changes again, another naaru, D'ore, was all but killed in the crash of Oshu'gun. His remains should still be laid to rest by Velen and the draenei in the first crypt of what would become the alternate timeline Auchindoun. We don't know how D'ore has affected this version of Auchindoun, yet.


  • Oshu'gun does not appear on preliminary world map of Draenor, but it doesn't appear on the world map of Outland either.
    • It does appear on the Outland zone map for Nagrand, so it may appear on the Draenor zone map for alternate Nagrand when it is released.
