Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Before match

Rexxar (present)
I was banished from my only home. Unable to convince my clan to act, I would have to confront the Horde by myself.
Should they listen, my loss would not be in vain.

Introduction

Rexxar
Warchief Blackhand! May I have a word?
Warchief Blackhand
Words are weak. You must fight to be heard.
Rexxar
Then we fight.

Emote Response

Warchief Blackhand
More words, boy?

Hero Power

Warchief Blackhand
Do not test my patience.
For the Horde!
Tremble before me!

Idle

Warchief Blackhand
My clan was born for greatness... to conquer all. That is our legacy.
Power is the only law that all must obey.
The Horde was forged through blood and fear.

Turn 1

Warchief Blackhand
You are one of the mok'nathal, aren't you?
Rexxar
Yes. It is on their behalf I come to you.

Turn 2

Warchief Blackhand
I could destroy your clan in a heartbeat.
Rexxar
You must spare them!

Turn 3

Warchief Blackhand
HAH! All's fair in war, boy. The orcs have sacrificed much...
Rexxar
I know you have. But my people could not endure that.
Warchief Blackhand
Defeat me, and I'll consider your request.

Turn 6

Warchief Blackhand
You fight well for your kind. I have need of champions like you.

Death

Warchief Blackhand
Cease this! You've persuaded me. But in return, you must serve the Horde.
Rexxar
I swear it!
Rexxar becomes Warsong Rexxar

Defeat

Warchief Blackhand
You are only a half-orc, unworthy of my attention.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Blackhand was the chieftain of the mighty Blackrock clan and the first Warchief of the Old Horde until he was killed by Orgrim Doomhammer near the end of the First War. He was known throughout Draenor and Azeroth alike as a brutal tyrant.
