- This article is about the Blackwater Raiders (organization), see also Blackwater Raiders (US RP server).
Headed by Baron Revilgaz, the Blackwater Raiders are a loose affiliation of pirates, privateers, and traders that operate out of Booty Bay. They are closely tied to the Goblin Steamwheedle Cartel and handle most of their trade. The Blackwater Raiders are arch-rivals of the Bloodsail Buccaneers, another pirate group that vies for control of Stranglethorn Vale. They have sometimes been known to attack villages, which have been forced to defend themselves to protect the settlement.Faldir's Cove, as it is called, is a small area also held by the Blackwater Raiders. Though little more than a docked ship and a tent, this small port is home to a few crew members of the pirate organization. They also control Edj on Kezan.
Members of the Blackwater Raiders should also have the title <Blackwater Raiders>.
- They are possibly a reference to the real-life private military organisation Blackwater Worldwide.
