Activity on Azeroth
Manipulated by the Black Scourge, Deathwing the Destroyer, the Dragonmaw found an artifact of immense power known as the 恶魔之魂 - created by Deathwing himself ten thousand years earlier, but forever forbidden from his grasp as the result of the spellwork of the other Aspects. Zuluhed entrusted the Demon Soul to a warrior/warlock named 碎颅者耐克鲁斯, who used it to capture the Dragonqueen Alexstrasza - much to his surprise, and certainly to Alexstrasza's. The Dragonmaw used Alexstrasza's young to fight for the 部落 - and fight they did, through much of the Second War. Operating out of the abandoned Wildhammer capital of 格瑞姆巴托(副本), the Dragonmaw maintained their control over Alexstrasza and her flight after the Horde was defeated, using them to raid Alliance ports in the surrounding Wetlands. Yet the Dragonmaw also had forces away from Grim Batol (notably in the Black Morass defending the 黑暗之门(地理)) and many were captured by the Alliance at the time of the Horde's defeat.
The 肯瑞托 high councillor Krasus - the humanoid form of the red dragon 考雷斯特拉兹, one of Alexstrasza's consorts - sent the mage 罗宁 to free Alexstrasza from the Dragonmaw in Grim Batol by somehow destroying the Demon Soul - which, using one of Deathwing's scales, he did. In her fury, Alexstrasza then tore Grim Batol apart and ate Nekros whole. However, some elements remained both alive and free, and to this day live in the Wetlands and Twilight Highlands. The Wetlands Dragonmaw are led by Nekros' son, Nek'rosh, who serves the self-styled Warchief of the Dark Horde, Rend Blackhand.
Activity in Outland
At some point during the Second War, Zuluhed and much of his clan returned to Draenor and survived the destruction that led to the creation of Outland. Now they are in the service of the Lord of Outland, 伊利丹·怒风. Their attempts to subjugate dragons have continued — only this time, they are targeting a brood of nether drakes called the Netherwing. In what appears to be a repeat of their capture of Alexstrasza, the Dragonmaws have captured the matriarch of the Netherwing, the nether dragon Karynaku, and hold her prisoner in their fortress. Karynaku is held with a magical ball and chain, and only Zuluhed himself has the key.
In World of Warcraft
The Burning Crusade
Dragonmaw Fortress, where Zuluhed and much of the Dragonmaw clan resides, is located south of the Black Temple and east of the Netherwing Fields in Shadowmoon Valley. For some reason, certain members of the clan in this area can turn into Drakonids, this includes Zuluhed.
After the player has completed the entire questline associated with the Netherwing, their current situation is as follows: The leader of the Dragonmaw (Zuluhed) lies dead, along with masses of peons and other soldiers. Illidan is outraged because the Dragonmaw revered a person that was attempting to destroy the entire clan from within and failed to seize this betrayer despite the fact that he was at their very doorstep, chained in a powerful spell. Thus far we can only assume that Illidan has attempted to fully destroy the clan. As stated by the Netherwing "The Dragonmaw empire has come to an end."
- This wayward orc clan was once empowered by Deathwing himself to enslave red dragons, including Alexstrasza. Currently less numerous and powerful, the Dragonmaw make their home in the Twilight Highlands.
In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm it is revealed that Mor'ghor was able to survive Illidan's wrath and flee to Azeroth. Mor'ghor now styles himself as the Warchief of the Dragonmaw Clan; using his fel orcs to keep the regular orcs in control. When Horde forces arrived in the Twilight Highlands to negotiate with the clan, Mor'ghor killed the negotiator and decided to keep the player as a bargaining chip. However, thanks to Zaela the player was able to escape and inform Horde command of the tensions between the regular orcs and the fel orcs with in the clan. Using this information, the Horde forces lay siege to Dragonmaw Port from the shore and the Dragonmaw themselves take up arms against the fel orcs with supplies sent by the Horde fleet. The fight is eventually taken directly to Mor'ghor, and with the help of the Horde, he is disposed of. Zaela announces that a new Dragonmaw dawns with his death. After the Horde and Dragonmaw route out the remaining fel orcs, Garrosh Hellscream arrives and meets with the new leader of the Dragonmaw Clan: Zaela, and welcomes the clan into the Horde. Following the Cataclysm, Azeroth's situation has become increasingly dire, and the soldiers of the new Horde are now presented with an opportunity to redeem their old allies. Despite their past crimes, it is the will of the warchief that the once-maligned Dragonmaw join the Horde in battle once again.
Those members of the Horde who endorse the Dragonmaw clan will find themselves rewarded with masterfully crafted pieces of armor and mystic trinkets that reflect the clan's history of domination.
The Dragonmaw with the aid of the Demon Chain (an item that once carried the Demon Soul and still carries a portion of its power) have been able to create powerful Black Dragon air support for the clan and the Horde. Though it seems that the demon chain must be kept close by or the dragon could regain their will as seen with Torth. Following the end of Cataclysm and Deathwing's death it is revealed that 拉希奥 is the last known black dragon alive on Azeroth. As such it seems as if the rest of the black dragons under the command of the Dragonmaw perished either in the fighting between the Horde, Alliance, and Twilight Hammer within the Twilight Hammers. Alternatively the rest of the black dragons could have regained their own will like Torth did, which would force the Dragonmaw to put them down. Which ever scenario (perhaps even a combination) occurred it is known by the time of the 暗矛之乱 that Dragonmaw no longer use or have black dragons under their command.
Zaela, the chieftan of the Dragonmaw, was summoned by Garrosh to help put down the burgeoning 暗矛之乱. She can be found at the Dranosh'ar Blockade projecting her will via the Demon Chain onto an enslaved proto drake. During The Secrets of Ragefire scenario, the Gob Squad finds a large amount of Proto-drake eggs in the cave, suggesting that the Dragonmaw now use proto-dragons as flying mounts instead of black dragons and that they use their powerful air forces to support Garrosh.
Siege of Orgrimmar
Zaela and some of her finest soldiers were tasked by Garrosh to defend Bladefist Bay against the fleets of both the Alliance and the Rebels during the 决战奥格瑞玛. Zaela leads her forces from the back of her proto-drake, Galakras, into the battle.
Zaela and other Dragonmaw orcs still loyal to Garrosh fled to 格瑞姆巴托(副本) following the Siege of Orgrimmar, where they successfully hid from scouts sent by Vol'jin to look for them in the Twilight Highlands. Kairozdormu contacted Zaela and tasked her with gathering Shokia, Thalen Songweaver, and Harrowmeiser.
Warlords of Draenor
Zaela has traveled to Draenor with Garrosh and became a member of the Iron Horde, along with the Dragonmaw who chose to follow her, effectively making her one of the leading warlords of the orcish union. Later, she also led the Ironmarch along with Ironmarch Commander Tharbek to 黑石塔上层, where they have set up a base of operations.
In World of Warcraft, Dragonmaw clan members originally all had the same chartreuse yellow skin color already accessible to orc player characters, giving them a distinct look as a group. This skin color can still be seen on Garneg Charskull and Ma'ruk Wyrmscale. Nek'rosh Skullcrusher was another example before his death and 疲惫的祖鲁希德, despite being in 外域, has not been corrupted into a fel orc.

Original Dragonmaw skin color
Origin of the name
- One of the realms in World of Warcraft is named after the Dragonmaw clan.
- The Dragonmaw clan is the only known clan to serve in every incarnation of the Horde: Old Horde, Dark Horde, Fel Horde, and the most recent for them to join, New Horde (aka, 萨尔's Horde) as well as True Horde and Iron Horde.
- The exact details of the Dragonmaw orc skin color are not known. It's possible their grey skin tone is a full body tattoo, or that (like the 黑石氏族) years of dwelling underground without light has altered them. It could also be natural pallor already present to a degree before the Blood Curse.
- After Overlord Mor'ghor returned from Outland, he seemed to have brought some other fel orcs with him, reuniting the clan, but after the clan joined the New Horde the fel orcs are nowhere to be seen, presumably all killed by Garrosh's forces.
- Dragonmaw clan had legends about dragons in Draenor.
- The dark skin color of the clan members on Azeroth can be explained by the years they spend in Grim Batol; they might have been "fundamentally altered".
- The clan is the only member of the Iron Horde to not have an alternate Draenor equivalent.
- As there were no dragons on Draenor, their clan identity could not have existed, causing some issues for the developers.
It is unknown if the Dragonmaw clan ever reconciled with the red dragonflight during their time in the Horde.
Furthermore, since the Dragonmaw threw their lot in with the True Horde and the Iron Horde, it is unknown if any Dragonmaw clan orcs are still in the Horde. However there were several Dragonmaw NPCs such as Herzegor Flametusk, Artesh, and Gregor that seemed to be loyal to the Horde, and friendly to its members. The former NPC is still in Orgrimmar. Koak is also loyal to the Horde.
Origin of the name
The idea of a dragon may have derived from rylaks, large mammals native to Draenor with wide wings and many dragon-like features (the rylaks later mutated into 外域's chimaeras). It may also have come from the fey dragons of Shadowmoon Valley or the wind serpents of Spires of Arak.
On the alternate Draenor
There are several orcs using the new Dragonmaw model (with gray skin and glowing golden eyes) in the Ring of Trials on the alternate Draenor. Lieutenant O'rok also uses that model. Security Guards in the Blackrock Foundry also use them. It is unknown whether they represent the clan, or if it is just a developer mistake. Hefty Metal's objective is a Blackrock scout named Iron Flameseer, who uses the Dragonmaw model.
