Belloc Brightblade is the Horde's archaeology trainer based at Grommash Hold[48.6, 72.8] within the Valley of Strength in Orgrimmar. He also serves as a neutral quest giver for both factions at Schnottz's Landing[24.4, 64.6] in Uldum.
His name and dress sense are likely a reference to René Belloq, the main antagonist from Raiders of the Lost Ark. This also fits with the Alliance Archaeology trainer, Harrison Jones, who himself is a reference to Harrison Ford's role as Indiana Jones.
Because of this, lots of parodies have been featured by players and fans of Indiana Jones franchise. For example, the well-known dialogue between Jones and Belloq at the beginning of the Lost Ark, in which the word hovitos have been replaced by a more WoW-like reference:
- Harrison Jones: They don't know you like I do, Belloc.
- Belloc Brightblade: True, you could warn them, if only you spoke trollish!
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Added.
