Important Lore Characters in Battle of Dazar'alor
Battle of Dazar'alor employs a special
, allowing each faction to see the events of the war from the opposite perspective. However, if you've only really played one faction, you may be unfamiliar with the importance and backstories of the characters you are fighting against. Who are the major characters in Battle of Dazar'alor and why should you care about them?
In preparation for Dazar'alor, we have written biographies of important characters you will face off against in the raid. If you're interested in a long read that details the life events of these major characters, these linked articles are for you! You can find even more character summaries in our

High Tinker Mekkatorque
Unrivaled in their ingenuity, Gelbin Mekkatorque's inventions have been instrumental to the Alliance's attack on Dazar'alor. His state-of-the-art armor is outfitted with the latest--and deadliest--ordnance that gnomish engineering can offer.
Gelbin Mekkatorque, the King of the Gnomes, most recently thwarts Gallywix and engages in some Gnomish vs Goblin engineering trash-talking in the
step of the 8.1 Horde War Campaign. His appearance in the raid opens the door to speculation that we may be getting a Gnome-centric cinematic (finally!) and more lore surrounding

The Alliance have special interactions with two characters that later become bosses in the Battle of Dazar'alor.
After volunteering to become a living super weapon, the once-intelligent Grong devolved into a giant rampaging behemoth. But though his mind may have deteriorated, Grong's strength is more immense than it has ever been.
Once willing to sacrifice everything to serve the Alliance, the mighty Grong has been raised from the dead and pitted against his former friends. Fighting on behalf of the Horde would be anathema to this noble soul, whose only hope for release is a clean death.
Alliance players may remember Grong from the
chapter of the 8.1 War Campaign, in which he uses the Embiggifier to convert his intelligence to strength in order to fight the Horde. He is first a Horde encounter in Battle of Dazar'alor, and after his defeat, Bwonsamdi resurrects him which leads to the Alliance version of the encounter.

Alliance players will remember Opulence from the
step of the 8.1 War Campaign, in which Master Mathias Shaw and Flynn Fairwind infiltrated the Zandalari Treasury to take back the Abyssal Scepter. Jaina and Magister Umbric combine the powers of arcane and void to create a portal to the Treasury. Opulence is not happy we have stolen the scepter.
