The Lore Of Hearthstone's Legendaries - Warrior
Garrosh Hellscream was the son of Grom Hellscream and former chieftain of the Warsong clan. With the reopening of the Dark Portal, Garrosh was invited into the Horde by Thrall himself, quickly advancing to the position of personal adviser of the Warchief. Garrosh led the Horde troops into Northrend and was given the position of acting Warchief in Thrall's absence. Garrosh was well known for his fierce hatred of the Alliance and frequently expressed his desire for the Horde to go to war with its rival faction.
The tattoo on his chin is meant to represent his status as chieftain; all other known Warsong clan chiefs have had a similar mark or tattoo to represent their status. Garrosh was killed by Thrall in the Warlords Of Draenor expansion of World Of Warcraft.
Magni Bronzebeard is the King of the dwarven kingdom of Khaz Modan, head of the Bronzebeard Clan, and head of the Senate of Ironforge. The eldest of the three Bronzebeard brothers, Magni was destined to be the king under the mountain. Strong of arm and keen of mind, Magni loved his two brothers above all else in the world. He was one of the heroes during the Second War, often directly leading his people into battle.
In the Norse mythology, Magni is one of Thor's two sons and one of the few gods who will survive the Ragnarok and who will wield (along with his brother, Modi) his father's legendary hammer Mjolnir after Ragnarok.
Varian Wrynn, also called Lo'Gosh the "Ghost Wolf", is the son of the late King Llane Wrynn, is the acting leader of the Alliance, and the current King of Stormwind. Under his leadership, the humans of Stormwind led the Alliance to victory against the Lich King in Northrend and now seek to bolster their strategic holdings against their perennial enemy, "the Horde".
The king has recently returned to the throne following his abduction by the Defias Brotherhood and the black dragon Onyxia, who disguised herself as Lady Katrana Prestor. Robbed of his memories and enslaved by a Horde gladiatorial trainer in Kalimdor, Varian fought his way to freedom, earning the nickname “Lo’Gosh,” or “ghost wolf,” while in battle. With the help of his comrades, he was able to recover his true identity and finally defeat Onyxia.
Varian wields a legendary blade called Shalamayne, which was created from a fusion of Shalla'tor the Shadow Render and Ellemayne the Reaver. He has been voiced by Chris Metzen and Jon St. John.
Grommash "Grom" Hellscream was the chieftain of the Warsong clan, and best friend and chief advisor to Warchief Thrall. He was the first orc who drank the blood of Mannoroth the Destructor, thus binding the Horde to the Burning Legion — and he would eventually pay the ultimate price to free himself and his people from the curse. Grom killed Cenarius during the Invasion of Kalimdor under a demon-enchanted might, bestowed after drinking Mannoroth's Blood.
"Grommash" means "The Giant's Heart" in orcish. Grom was killed by an inferno of flame triggered after he killed Mannoroth with Thrall's aid. His axe, Gorehowl, now belongs to his son Garrosh Hellscream.
Iron Juggernaut is the sixth boss of Siege of Orgrimmar. Created by Siegecrafter Blackfuse, this robotic scorpion guards the gates to the city of Orgrimmar. After it destroys the Darkspear Rebellion's siege weaponry and reserves, the players must destroy the Iron Juggernaut to allow the rebellion into the city.
