The Wretch Legion is an army of Wretched that failed to control their magical addiction and served the Burning Legion. Since Wretched currently lack any general leadership, the Dark titan Sargeras used his dark power to make them organize a faction and launch raids.
Rise of the LegionEditThis section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.
Rising from the shadow, the Wretch Legion was sent by Sargeras to attack Northern Lordaeron. Their first assault was Northeron. However, Jaina Proudmoore led the Kirin Tor and the Silver Covenant knew of this and aided the High elves of Quel'Dor to face the enemy. Before the Legion prepared to attack, a group of Archmages casted a powerful spell which put the entire legion to sleep. Jaina believed that all these Wretched can be saved from their twisted state. After several days, the Kirin Tor developed a magical cure which turned nearly all the Wretched into original high elves.
In World of Warcraft: The Dark Below, playable high elves will start as Wretched chained in silvery cages, along with the rest that are been transformed into high elves. After a High elf healer approaches to the cage, the player is finally free and turned back into a high elf.
