The Great HealerEditThis section concerns content exclusive to the World of Warcraft: The Comic.
Moving to the Barrow Deeps under Mount Hyjal, Roth Barkskin suffered a grievous wound from a giant poison spider and was near death. Tyrande Whisperwind who aided him before, was down in the Barrow Deeps, searching for the Druids of the Claw. When she found the Furbolgs, and the sad state they were in, she offered her assistance to heal Roth, in which he gladly accepted. After she gathered water from the nearby fountain of life and used it to heal the Shaman, Roth thanked her for everything and promised to remember her as a good friend to the Furbolgs.
With the waters from the fountain of life, now coursing through his blood, Roth had the power to heal Furbolgs from the corruption. After healing many Furbolgs around the area, Roth believed that the Barrow Deeps was no longer safe for him and his people, he decided to lead the Barkskin tribe out of the Barrow Deeps and find a location where they could remain hidden from the Burning Legion. Roth led his people through a tunnel and stumbled through a blocked door, which leads to an unknown location. This door was magically sealed, and the Furbolgs couldn't find a way to unlock it. One thing that Roth did notice was that the seal was very slowly shrinking. The waters of life gave him adavnced sight. He could tell that the seal, judging how slowly it was shrinking, would disappear within a few years. They would return during that time and discover what was behind this door.
While Roth Barkskin led his people and healed other Furbolgs from corruption throughout the Barrow Deeps and added them in his tribe, he eventually found a secret entrance which led them to Felwood. Roth Barkskin and his people moved north through the land and discovered a neutral Furbolg clan, known as the Timbermaw Furbolgs. The Timbermaw offered Roth and the Barkskin tribe sanctuary in order to hide them from the Burning Legion that have already invaded Felwood. Roth saw that he and his people wouldn't remain hidden for long, since the Deadwood Furbolgs were corrupted. However, he still had courage that he could still save his people and free other Furbolgs tribes that have remained corruptive.
As the Barkskin tribe remained hidden in the mountains of Felwood, Roth discovered a secret entrance which was not discovered. The path was open, and he called all the Furbolg to follow him. The Barkskin tribe followed their leader through the tunnel which led them to a hidden land called Barrow Forest. Seeing how peaceful this land was, Roth brought his people to safety and planned reorganize their civilization in their new home. However, Roth discovered that he and his people were not the only ones in this land. He decided to travel with a group of Furbolgs and investigate the land before they could start their civilization. There, they stumble across a huge city named Brownwood, which was inhabited by a vast colony of uncorrupted Furbolgs.
The Furbolgs of Brownwood welcomed Roth and his group to the capital and introduced them to Queen Hela. After offering Roth and the tribe sanctuary, Roth accepted her offer and his tribe were welcomed to live in the land.
Rise of the ZandalariEditThis section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.
After Roth and Hela got married, becoming the rulers of both tribes, their land was invaded by Dark trolls, servants of the Zandalari Empire. Roth and Hela ordered their people to fight and defend the land. When a group of Night elf scouts entered the land by a hidden entrance from Darkshore, they discovered a war between the Furbolgs and the Dark elves. They sent a message to Tyrande Whisperwind about the news, and the High priestess sent many Night elves to aid the Furbolgs in defeating their enemies. With the Night elves support, Roth and the Furbolgs were welcomed to the Alliance. After celebrating, Roth would begin healing more corrupted Furbolgs from several tribes and add them into the Alliance as well.
Invaders of ZandalarEdit
During the War against the Zandalari, Roth and his wife led many Furbolg warriors that were freed from the corruption, to the island of Zandalar where they would confront the Zandalari. Stationed at Taylor Hold, Roth stood beside his friend Tyrande Whisperwind and Malfurion Stormrage to prepare their ultimate stand against the enemy.
