在某一时刻, 古加尔控制了暮光之锤氏族, 并显示出了和追随他的那些兽人一样的狂热。
虽然这一事件背后的真相依然是一个迷, 但现在的暮光之锤除了保留了古加尔氏族的破坏性之外，几乎与之前完全不同。 由于某种未知的原因， 上古之神中的一个已设法将这个氏族变成了它的仆从; 而从那时开始，这个氏族的成员和力量都大大增强了。甚至人类和其他的一些联盟成员也蜂拥而至为元素领主效力，以助其将艾泽拉斯世界彻底毁灭。暮光之锤中最大的一群人现在都在他们相信上古之神及其仆从们被封印之地的附近安营扎寨， 他们中的很多人在希利苏斯等待着克苏恩的醒来，而其他人则与黑铁矮人一同在黑石深渊中侍奉着拉格纳罗斯。
在 黑海岸, 暮光之锤被发现于 主宰之剑, 一具死去的上古之神的骨架。 在灰谷，他们祭拜上古野兽 阿库麦尔—上古之神最喜爱的宠物—之地 黑暗深渊 instance，他们的军事力量被认为是最强的。 在此处他们的领导者是暮光领主克尔里斯, 一位在 艾萨拉女王雕像前冥想的兽人铸造者, 在“黑暗深渊中的邪恶”任务中等待着冒险者。 在 铁炉堡, 葛利•硬骨 建立了商店 Bonegrip's Runes and Dooms ，为了暮光之锤以及协助那些想要释放 密斯莱尔公主的人, 被遗忘者看守者贝尔杜加 在幽暗城 秘密的为邪教组织工作. 他们在希利苏斯的活跃行动被认为是由于上古之神克苏恩的存在。 最近, 他们在希利苏斯特别活跃, 利用风石召唤 深渊议会的强大 元素，以领导组织的活动。
World of Warcraft: The Comic
在克苏恩被凡人冒险者杀死之后（在被俘获的红龙、蓝龙和绿龙的帮助之下），臭名昭著的古加尔占据了 安其拉神殿 。 他绑架并把 半兽人迦罗娜洗脑变成了他的刺客， 利用她作为工具在 [联盟]]和 部落之间播下 不信任的种子。古加尔原打算牺牲麦德安， 三个世界的预言之子, 以拯救他的黑暗之主 from his bonds. 但是, 麦德安 和他的同胞们成立了 新提瑞斯法议会. 做为新议会的守护者，麦德安击败了古加尔并挫败了他的计划。
在 天崩地裂：浩劫的前奏小说中，暮光之锤对 灰谷发生的两起大规模屠杀事件负有责任，这起事件是精心策划的，旨在破坏联盟和部落之间仅剩的脆弱平衡。这不仅使得两方的紧张局势加剧，哈缪尔·符文图腾也在第二次屠杀事件中身负重伤。收到哈缪尔的消息， 强大的凯恩·血蹄相信这些兽人是加尔鲁什·地狱咆哮—联盟与部落之间任何条约的坚决反对者—派来的，他与加尔鲁什当面对质。在他们随后的决斗中，玛加萨·野性图腾利用了地狱咆哮自身的鲁莽，使得凯恩失去了他的生命。这样一来，暮光之锤要对凯恩之死间接负责，而且幸运的是他们在灰谷事件中所扮演的角色仍然未被发现。因此屠杀事件的罪犯还没有被找到，也未在游戏当中出现。
暮光之锤在第三次世界扩大（译者注：即大灾变）中成为主角。在 扭曲的死亡之翼力量及毁灭意志的许诺诱惑之下，他们与他一起共同寻求毁灭艾泽拉斯.他们占据了古老的矮人城塞格瑞姆巴托(副本)以及周围的 暮光高地, 在酋长 食人魔法师 古加尔的领导之下，将此地转化为他们的主要战争基地，并破坏所能破坏的一切。他们还征募了危险的 暮光龙军团以扩张他们的军队。他们领导了很多次破坏世界的行动，比如突袭 海加尔山,帮助纳迦在他们的战争中对抗耐普图隆，以及在暗中破坏修复 深岩之洲之中 世界之柱的努力 . 他们在 黑石洞穴中也是一股强大的存在, 他们在这里被提升为龙兽，并向暮光高地来回运输物资。他们与 托维尔一起改造位于奥丹姆的造物者遗迹之中金子塔型设施，使之成为能够破坏艾泽拉斯所有生命的超级武器。值得注意的是，他们在游戏中的角色与巫妖王之怒中的 诅咒神教十分类似，可以被认为是他们的大灾变版。
With the Twilight Cult in disarray following the demise of its leader, Cho'gall, an enigmatic figure known as the "Twilight Father" had taken on a more active role in the cult's affairs. 阿瑞苟斯 delivered his sister, Kirygosa, to the cult. The Twilight father sent a group of Twilight dragons to the reunion of the four dragonflights. The assault had to destroy Ysera and did a diversion to corrupt the eggs of all dragonflights. Thanks to the sacrifice of 考雷斯特拉兹, the sanctum was destroyed and the eggs too. The loss was heavy for the dragonflights especially for Alexstrasza. The dragons were chased away from the Wyrmrest Temple and it became the cult's base. They sent a infinite assassin to kill 萨尔 wherever he goes. Arygos, wanting to become the aspect of magic, wanted to deliver the whole blue dragonflight to the cult. Kalecgos, however, became the new aspect and the Twilight Father betrayed the blue dragon. Aedelas Blackmoore killed him in the 永恒之眼. His blood activated the Focusing Iris and the flux of arcane magic gave the life to Chromatus. Kirygosa had to breed with Chromatus in order to create a new chromatic dragonflight, stronger and more stable. The cult spent his time to hunt the Elk in Dragonblight feeding the five-headed dragon and to keep an eye on Kyrigosa. Thrall ended up killing Aedelas. Kyri killed some cultist and escaped. On the back of Chromatus, the Twilight Father assited the final assault on the aspects. However, thanks to Thrall, for a little time, the aspects were once again five and ended the chromatus' life. The Twilight Father fled and in spite of his failure wasn't killed by Deathwing but took his role as Archbishop Benedictus back on. He rejected the title 'Twilight Father' from here on out and assumed the mantle of Twilight Prophet exclusively.[请求来源]
The Druids of the Flame are members of the cult under the leadership of 范达尔·鹿盔. Fandral with his servants arrived during the Earthen Ring and the Cenarion Circle union to jail 萨尔s soul in the elemental plane.
During the opening of the portal on Nordune Ridge, Leyara led a assault of fire minions to lay waste to the invaders. The flame druids resurect Alysra into Alysrazor. A long time after that, she attempted to kill Hamuul during a rendezvous at Leyara's Sorrow. Alongside the fire elementals, the flame druids didn't stop the attack on the Molten Front. The Druids of the Flame attempted to perform a ritual here, but were stopped by the Shadow Wardens. Later, Leyara was spotted in the Igneous Depths and killed by four Shadow Wardens.
During the final assault, the druids defended their master. The blazing talon assisted Alysrazor during his fight while Majordomo Staghelm and his men were defending the Sulfuron Keep. However, the Avengers of Hyjal won the war and the Druids of the Flame were annihilated.
萨尔, with the aid of adventurers, faced off with the Twilight Prophet during the Hour of Twilight once and for all. The Twilight Prophet is defeated, however the Twilight's Hammer continued to lay siege to Wyrmrest. The cultists fled once Morchok was defeated. Some members lead by Hagara the Stormbinder guarded the Focusing Iris within the 永恒之眼, but Hagara and her group were also slain by heroes. The Twilight's Hammer then makes one final attempt to stop the Dragon Aspects, and a war party of Twilight Dragons accompanied by their Vrykul riders damaged the engines of 天火号 in an attempt to stop them from catching up to Deathwing as he fled back to Deepholm. Once the Dragons and the Vrykul were slain, however, Warmaster Blackhorn accompanied by Goriona boarded the ship and attempted to dispose of the heroes, but were ultimately slain, allowing the Skyfire to catch up to Deathwing and finally destroy him with the power of the Dragon Soul.
With the death of Deathwing and leadership of the cult the status of the cult is unknown but it can be presumed that the cultist who survived still worship the Old Gods and will remain a threat, however diminished they may be.
While the cult has fallen, some remaining members infiltrated the Ragefire Chasm and founded the Dark Shaman. The legacy of the Hammer is still pursued by several groups such as Council of the Black Harvest, bent on unlocking the mysteries of the cult's dark arts.

What the Twilight's Hammer lacks in military training, it more than makes up for in fervor. Every member would willingly die for the cult, fully believing the Old Gods would reward them for their sacrifice.
Members of lower echelons of the Twilight Hammer (which is most of them) are predominately of the non-magical classes, mostly barbarians, rogues, and warriors. Other non-magical classes are known, but less common. As one ascends through the ranks of the organization, spellcasters become more common. The twilight overlords are almost exclusively spellcasters. Most of the spellcasters are arcanists, specifically elementalists.
This hierarchical pyramid is also indicative of how the Twilight's Hammer cult approaches defense. The first cultists the heroes encounter are likely to be low-level initiates. Only if that fails to deter them do the heroes face higher-ranking members, increasing in rank and power as they plunge into the depths of the temple. To catch sight of the inner circle, the heroes must breach the inner sanctum. The twilight lord deigns to fight only if the sect as a whole is threatened (in other words, to preserve his own life or goals). By that point, of course, the heroes are depleted from fighting the cultists, in theory making them easy prey for the twilight lord (which makes him look even more impressive to his followers).
Should a Twilight's Hammer sect be incited to attack another group, their offensive tactics differ little from their defense. Low-level members act as scouts, while the main force attacks in waves of incrementally increasing power, until they subdue their foe, and the twilight lord — or one of his representatives — can swoop in and claim victory. The Twilight's Hammer rarely uses such overt measures, however, preferring instead to scare off those who stand in its way. Accompanying each act of sabotage, kidnapping, or assassination is always an unambiguous — and gruesome — sign that the Twilight's Hammer is responsible.
The Twilight's Hammer is obsessed with bringing the 时光之末s or other scenarios of reckoning in the name of the Old Gods upon the world. This may have been already started on Draenor, as archaeology revealed a set of Doomsday Prophecies marked with the iconography of a flaming hammer. With this apocalyptic mindset, new recruits are often sent on difficult or impossible tasks, such as obtaining a black dragon scale or phoenix feather, and sorted out with deadly trials. Their fanatical views can also be seen in their newspaper in 希利苏斯, the True Believer, which is gathered from Encrypted Twilight Texts. Other texts, like Yagyin's Digest, the Lorgalis Manuscript or the Book: The Powers Below, speak of their worship and sacrifices to the Old Gods.
- The cultists of the Twilight's Hammer use their powers to draw elementium metal from deep beneath the earth. They coax it out into twisted spikes to form their buildings, rooted right into the defiled ground.
Since the eary stages of Cataclysm's development, the Twilight's Hammer Cult was intented to be a face of the Cataclysm, with entire dungeons and zones devoted to them. What was once Cho'Gall and his clan became an enormous, world-hating cult that involved all races of Azeroth. The developers felt that they could use existing art of all races and add it to the pre-existing art of the Cult. However, the only art direction the developers came up with was the banner found in the Cult's camps, so they didn't have much to give the Cult their own unique look. One angle that was explored was the Old God connection: statues of Faceless Ones and lamps with the same motif worked into them were designed. The final art direction for the Cult's environment were dragon's heads, scales, and horns, purple flames, and Elementium blades. Elementium was chosen to be the Cult's "key-mineral," like Saronite was the Scourge's in Wrath of the Lich King. Since the Twilight's Hammer was summoning Elementium up from the ground, the developers decided to give unforged Elementium the organic, spiny look found within the 暮光堡垒 and the Twilight Highlands.
