The Burning Blade was one of the most savage and untrustworthy of the Orc clans. Being anarchists, they've never had a leader. Instead the members of the clan rule themselves.

Cenarion Circle

The Cenarion Circle is a group of druids dedicated to the keeping of the balance within the world. Like the Argent Dawn, they are not concerned with mundane politics, but rather seek to unite and protect nature. The Circle's membership includes druids from both the Horde and the Alliance, and the organization itself is based in Moonglade. They offer a variety of quests, mostly to do with the training of druids. Moonglade is accessible to any character, but the route to the entrance involves either killing or allying with the Timbermaw Furbolgs. In World of Warcraft, Druids are given the "Teleport: Moonglade" spell at level 10.


The Cenarion Circle has recently established a major outpost, Cenarion Hold, in the desert of Silithus. There they contend with the insectoid Silithid and the sinister Twilight's Hammer cultists, and lead the preparation for conflict with the deadly inhabitants of long-sealed Ahn'Qiraj.


Also, with the introduction of The Burning Crusade, the Cenarion Circle has seen fit to establish an expedition to Outland. There are various locations they have set up in, most notably Cenarion Outpost in Eastern Zangarmarsh, and Cenarion Thicket, in Northern Terrokar Forest. The latter has been attacked, leaving few survivors.


Along with this, the area of Outland known as Nagrand has been recently changed from a barren area, much like other areas, to a lusciously grown plain, much like Mulgore, due to the druids' intervention.

Furthermore the Cult of the Damned was responsible for the initial infection of many citizens of Lordaeron by infecting the granaries at Andorhal and Brill with the Plague that eventually lead to the uprising of the Scourge and the destruction of major parts of the region known thereafter as the Plaguelands.Religious Leader:Kel'Thuzad.
