The Horde crest includes symbolic elements representing the races making up the Horde, though the links are less clearcut than for the Alliance crest:
- Orcs - heraldric symbols
- Tauren - horns, hanging cloth and feathers
- Forsaken - chained bones
- Trolls - face masks (purple, wooden)
It remains to be seen if blood elven, goblin, or any of the minor Horde races' symbology will somehow be incorporated into the crest.
