The Gruul the Dragonkiller wiki last edited by universalize on 09/22/14 06:37PM View full history

Gruul the Dragonkiller is a massive gronn who resides in Blade's Edge Mountains in Outland. He rules the ogres that inhabit Outland, who worship him like a diety. Gruul is the main boss encounter in Gruul's Lair, a 25-player, level 70 raid instance in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade.


During the events of Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, the black dragon Deathwing traveled to Draenor (now Outland) to hide many unhatched dragon eggs. He left the eggs to be guarded by only a small number of dragons, believing they would not encounter much resistance from the planet's natives. However, the gronn and their ogre servants, led by Grull, destroyed the eggs and killed the black dragons defending them, impaling their corpses on the large natural spikes that fill Blade's Edge Mountains. During the events of The Burning Crusade, the Alliance and Horde find him to be a dangerous threat that must be stopped.


  • Growth: Every 30 seconds, Gruul's damage will increase by 15%, as well as his size. This can stack up to 30 times.
  • Hurtful Strike: Strikes the target with the second highest threat towards Gruul every eight seconds.
  • Reverberation: Silences all raid members for four seconds.
  • Cave-in: Randomly targets a circular area of the room; targets caught in the area-of-effect take damage every three seconds.
  • Ground Slam: Knocks back all enemy targets in random directions.
  • Gronn Lord's Grasp: Gradually reduces all raid members' movement speed over time. After five seconds, every character will turn to stone.
  • Shatter: After being turned to stone, every player will eventually shatter, causing damage to all allies within range. The damage is increased for players closer together.
