The World of Warcraft Character The Dwarf

by : Hunter Crowell

The stoic dwarves of ironforge are an ancient race of rugged humanoids that live beneath the snow-capped mountains of khaz modan. The dwarves have always been quick allies with the humans, and they revel in the prospects of battle and storytelling alike.

In past ages, the dwarves seldom left the security of their mountain fortresses. Nevertheless, when the call to battle sounded, they rise to defend their friends and allies with unmatched courage and valor. Due to a recent discovery that uncovered fragments of their ancient origins, the dwarves have undergone a remarkable transformation.

The discovery convinced the Dwarves that the mighty titans created them from stone when the world was young. They feel that their destiny is now to search the world over for more signs and proof of their enchanted heritage and to rediscover the titans' hidden legacies. To this end, the dwarves have sent out their prospectors to all ends of the world in the hopes of discovering new insight into their shrouded past. These journeys led to dwarven excavation sites all over the known world, some of which serve as outposts and some of which serve as potential hunting grounds for enemies of the dwarven race.

Following the first war between the orcs and humans, the people of stormwind withdrew to lordaeron. As a second wave of orcs swarmed through the dark portal, the dwarves of ironforge and the wildhammers of aerie peak committed their troops and services to the alliance. Their gryphon riders turned out an invaluable in the ensuing battles.

Enlisting both the ogres and forest trolls into their fold, the orcish horde moved first to conquer the lands of khaz modan and the southern lands of lordaeron. They effortlessly eliminated all opposition. They were only blocked from total conquest by the gates of ironforge. Try as they might, the orcs were ultimately incapable to breach the ancient doors. As things were looking grim for the alliance, the horde began to splinter from within due to the treachery of the warlock gul'dan.

Seeing the weakness, the commanders of the alliance moved in for the kill. At the final battle on the slopes of blackrock mountain, the powerful armies of the savage horde were at last defeated in a dreadful and bloody rout. When the war ended, many of the members of the alliance separated, but the dwarves of ironforge pledged an eternal debt of honor to them for liberating khaz modan from the horde's control.

The dwarves under the faction of the alliance bring into battle their courage and strength with classes you could choose from: warrior, paladin, hunter and priest.
