The Kor'kron Guard is an organization within the Horde. For the most part, they are seen as the elite fighting force of the Horde, serving as the personal bodyguards of Warchief Garrosh Hellscream at his fortress of Grommash Hold in Orgrimmar. A detachment of Kor'kron have also been dispatched to Outland where they serve as the defenders of Shadowmoon Village in Shadowmoon Valley, the closest Horde outpost to the Black Temple. From there, they wage war against the Burning Legion as well as the legions of Illidan Stormrage.

More recently the Kor'kron have been deployed in Northrend in full force[1] as part of the Horde Expedition.

The fortress at the base of Angrathar the Wrathgate is called Kor'kron Vanguard and is commanded by Dranosh Saurfang.

In many ways they seem to be the Horde counterpart of the 7th Legion. Both groups consist of their faction's elite forces, and both are heavily involved in their faction's campaign in Northrend.

During the war against the Lich King, Thrall sent a legion of Kor'kron to the Undercity to replace the Forsaken forces deployed to the front lines in Northrend; after the events of the Wrathgate, they were tasked to keep an eye on the Royal Apothecary Society to ensure that they discontinued work on the New Plague.

As of the Darkspear Rebellion, the Kor'kron Guard has transformed from a small, elite group, into a large-scale military police force, imprisoning, torturing, extorting, and otherwise assaulting the people of Orgimmar, physically and mentally. This radical change reflects the erratic behavior of Garrosh Hellscream, the Warchief. It is unknown what the status of the Kor'kron is after the downfall of Garrosh, but it is likely that the Guard will be reorganized and reformed, with the worst offenders being made to stand trial for their crimes.

Trivia Edit

  • The change from the original elite bodyguard under Thrall to the oppressive organization under Garrosh is very similar to the development of Adolf Hitler's Schutzstaffel, or more commonly known as the SS.
