World of Warcraft: Kilrogg Deadeye’s Story is a Tale of Sacrifice

By   /   Sep 19, 2014

Blizzard has released the fourth video in a series which introduces the new Warlords of Draenor, the latest one featuring Kilrogg Deadeye.

The one-eyed chieftain is of the Bleeding Hollow clan which according to the lore was suffering and declining before Kilrogg decided to see what destiny had in store for him. Seeing no way out, Kilrogg was commanded by his dying father to perform the clan’s sacred ritual.

Offering one of his own eyes as tribute, Kilrogg was able to see visions of his clan’s rise to power and of his death. The visions focused on how brutal the clan had become with power. Even in the face of death Kilrogg was laughing and showed no fear.

With that as motivation, Kilrogg takes over the clan as its new chief and sets out to ensure the rise of their clan. He is convinced that the Iron Horde will lead him to his glorious end.

You can watch his tale in the video above.

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor is the fifth expansion pack in Blizzard’s highly successful MMO. It is set after the events of Mists of Pandaria and takes place on Draenor, the original home world of the orcs. Legendary heroes from the the game’s past lore such as Grom Hellscream, Ner’zhul and Blackhand will return.

In Warlords of Draenor, Garrosh escapes captivity to go back in time prior to the rise of the Horde. He creates an alternate timeline where he prevents the Orcs from drinking the blood of the demon lord Mannoroth, which had led to their corruption. Unified under a new banner of the “Iron Horde” Garrosh begins a war of conquest on Draenor with a Dark Portal that allows them to travel back and forth through time.
