The Mag’har of World of Warcraft is known to be the “uncorrupted” Orcs or the “brown” Orcs of Draenor. Their history and their involvement in the story of Azeroth are quite complex. It is known that the corruption of the Orcs started through the consumption of the Blood of Mannoroth, with Grommash Hellscream as the first Orc to consume this blood. This marked the fall of Draenor as the Orcs were controlled by the will of the Burning Legion and were directed to turn against the Draenei—then eventually controlled by Gul’dan into a Horde to invade Azeroth. Despite these events happening in the first Warcraft game, some untold events happened and were later on introduced in detail through World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth.
In this guide, we’ll get to know about the Mag’har Orcs, their origins, and their recruitment to the Horde of Azeroth. Readers will be guided to a list of our Top WOW Male and Female Mag’har Orc Name.

The Alternate Draenor
We mentioned before that the involvement of the Mag’har in the wars of Azeroth is complex. To start, let’s define the Mag’har Orcs. The Mag’har Orcs are the “uncorrupted” or the “brown” Orcs who didn’t accede to the fel magics of the Legion. When Gul’dan and the Legion attempted to corrupt the Orcs with fel magics, not all Orcs became affected by it. Many years before the arrival of the Legion, the native Orcs and Ogres in Draenor are at constant war. The ogres, seeking a way to defeat the Orcs, created a contagion called the Red Pox. The Red Pox was used to sicken the Orcs and stop them from invading further ogre lands. Despite such efforts, the ogre empire still fell. The Red Pox remained, however. 400 years past to the construction of the Dark Portal, the Red Pox reemerged and afflicted many Orcs. Geyah, the mate of the Frostwolf clan chieftain Garad and the mother of Durotan, established a quarantined village in Nagrand. This village was later renamed Garadar, in honor of her deceased husband who also succumbed to the disease. Due to the fear of the Red Pox, the village of Garadar (Nagrand) and its inhabitants were isolated from the rest of the Orc tribes to contain the disease within their village. Orcs outside Garadar then participated in the Blood Pact with Mannoroth. The Orcs in Garadar were left untouched, while the war of the Orcs against the Draenei natives started. Later on, after the construction of the Dark Portal and the invasion of Azeroth, the natives of Garadar were referred to as the Mag’har, meaning “uncorrupted”.
One of the famous Mag’har in the stories of Warcraft is Garrosh Hellscream, son of the first Orc of the Blood Pact Grommash Hellscream. Garrosh was isolated from his father at a young age when he contracted the disease and was sent to Garadar for isolation. He recovered from the disease and became a military chief in Garadar. During the Third War, the combined forces of the Alliance and the Horde assaulted the Outlands (formerly Draenor) in an attempt to stop further Legion’s invasion. It was by this time where Warchief Thrall of the Horde met Garrosh Hellscream.
Garrosh and the Mag’har became a valuable asset for the Horde in their numerous campaigns in Outlands. Garrosh returned with the Horde to Azeroth and was the first Mag’har to step in Orgrimmar. He was personally chosen by Thrall to succeed him as the Horde Warchief. However, Garrosh became too obsessed with power. He seeks to bring the supremacy of the Orcs in Azeroth and conquer many lands as its sole ruler. His corruption has led to many atrocities that placed the Horde into unfavorable situations. Garrosh was then defeated by the combined forces of the Alliance and the Horde and was transferred to the Temple of the White Tiger in Pandaria for a fair trial. During his trial, a mysterious bronze dragon named Kairoz helped Garrosh escaped the trial by tinkering with the Vision of Time, creating a portal that allowed him and Garrosh to teleport to an alternate Draenor set 35 years in the past before the Blood Pact. With his knowledge of what will happen to the Orcs in the Blood Pact, he dissuaded most of the Orcs in that timeline from taking Mannoroth’s blood, including his father Grom Hellscream.
Unlocking the Mag’har in World of Warcraft
Unlocking the Mag’har Orcs as a playable character requires two conditions: A player must achieve the Exalted status with The Honorbound and complete the Horde War Campaign to achieve the Ready for War achievement. After completion and gaining this achievement, players must go back to Orgrimmar Embassy to pick up the Vision of Time shard from Eitrigg and start the recruitment quest for the Mag’har.
Allied Races: Mag’har Orc
The timeline of the alternate Draenor also changed with the failure of the Burning Legion’s corruption due to the intervention of Garrosh Hellscream. With this, the Orcs remained as Mag’har and started to become peaceful once again with the Draenei. However, the relationship of the Mag’har with the Draenei changed when a Draenei faction, known as the Lightbound, started to blame the Mag’har for the sudden decay of Draenor. War erupted between the Mag’har and the Lightbound Draenei. In the present-time Azeroth, the Horde commander Eitrigg together with the Horde champion (player) seeks to recruit the Mag’har orc clans from the alternate Draenor. They used the shard of the Vision of Time to travel to the present-day alternate Draenor where they found to be war-stricken between the Mag’har and the Lightbound. Together, they helped fight the Lightborn. The Mag’har, however, are in unfavorable positions in winning the war against the Lightbound. With the arrival of a huge Lightbound reinforcement, Grommash Hellscream and a few Mag’har warriors stayed behind to give way for the escape of Eitrigg, the Horde Champion, and the majority of the Mag’har to Azeroth. This unlocks the Mag’har race as a playable character in-game.
Mag’har Orcs share the same characteristics and features as a normal Draenor Orc. The only difference is their pure and original brownish or grayish skin tone as opposed to the greenish color of the corrupted Orcs.
Mag’har Traits and Classes
There are eight available classes for the Mag’har race as summarized in the table below:
Tank or Melee Plate DPS
Healer, Melee or Ranged Mail DPS
Melee or Ranged Mail DPS
Ranged Cloth DPS
Melee Leather DPS
Tank, Healer, or Melee Leather DPS
Healer or Ranged Cloth DPS
Tank or Melee Plate DPS
(Available with the Shadowlands pre-order)
The Mag’har Racial Traits are summarized below:
The Mag’har can call upon the spirits of their ancestors to grant them temporary power.
Upon activation, increases a random secondary stat by 102 for 12 seconds.
The Mag’har has an increased mounted speed of 10% when outdoors.
Mag’har’s savage nature allows them to fight further even when receiving debilitating statuses.
Reduces the duration of Poisons, Diseases, and Curses by 10%.
Mag’har Orcs are skilled with animal husbandry.
Increases any pet health by an additional 10%.
Game Suggestions: Mag’har’s skillset and passives are quite uncommon yet interesting. The Mag’har is one of the few who benefit well from mounting and they have tougher pet allies due to the Sympathetic Vigor passive trait. A basic and ideal class would be the Mag’har Warrior and the Mag’har Death Knight; if a player wishes to do a tanking role while at the same time providing damage with pets and closing the gaps on enemies. The Savage Blood passive trait and the Ancestral Call skill makes the Mag’har character durable and versatile in a variety of situation. But of course, it is still up to the players on which class they wish to take that fits their playstyle.
Mag’har names share the same idea and composition as with a common Orc name. The name is still guttural and has a harsh and quick tone. It is not clearly stated in the World of Warcraft if the Mag’har developed a different language, so it is safe to assume that both Mag’har and Orc names are still based on the same Orcish language.

Top Mag’har Orc Names Suggestions
As a concluding part of this guide, we’ll guide you to the list of our Top 10 Mag’har Name suggestions. In this list, we ranked the earlier suggested names based on their relevance in terms of being Orcish and how good are their background stories. We also have some personal favorites that we want to include in this list.
Check out our rankings below.
We like the name itself and gives us a nice impression that the character bearing this name is someone associated with magic. What we like the most is him being called the Storm Mage—we find this really cool.
First off, the name is powerful and brawny for a female Mag’har. Her backstory as someone who is vindictive is also a plus. On why she hates trolls is open for further lore enrichment and discussion.
Starting with her name, Uhzka sounds really nice for a Mag’har character. We depict her as a huntress skilled with throwing weapons. Way back Warcraft I and II, axe throwers are a real thing!
We sometimes wonder what the Mag’har has been doing since the Dark Portal. We are well aware that the corrupted Orcs of Draenor at constant war against the Draenei, aside from they are being grouped into a Horde. With this, we came up with an idea about a possibility that some Mag’har, since they aren’t corrupted, probably helped the Draenei survive the wars against their own kin.
This name is one of our favorites. We derived this name from the word Juggernaut, as we remember the blademaster from Warcraft III. Making a female Mag’har as a blademaster is also awesome.
With this name, we are also opening possibilities that there might be Mag’har who became much obsessed with nature magic. A shaman turned into a Mage is also an interesting back story.
Orcs are well known for their loyalty to their leaders. We describe Ka’gar as one of the many Mag’har who faithfully followed Garrosh Hellscream and his Iron Horde. We see him as the Mag’har version of Grommash Hellscream for he is the first to join the Iron Horde.
There are some unnamed Iron Horde soldiers that were sent to Azeroth as a scouting regiment prior to their invasion. We created the name Makdor for this purpose. He is the first Mag’har Iron Horde to step on the soils of Azeroth.
This name is also one of our favorites. We initially intend to use this as a funny name, but we came up with nice background lore. Her real name is Shraga and she changed her name to “Gudax” because she often hears her fellow Horde soldiers saying how nice her pair of axes is. Funny and clever, right?
Ever seen a mighty and powerful Mag’har who hates conflict? Hagrusk is an example. His name sounds intimidating and scary, yet we placed contrasting lore for he is someone who hates conflict. We find this name interesting in all aspects that is why we are including him on this list.
