''Monstrous. Cyclopean. Terror incarnate. Words cannot begin to describe the terrible gronn of Outland, the immortal demigods of the ogre race. Some say the gronn gave rise to the lesser ogres, yet if so, they show but little love for their children, as the savage brutes lord over the ogre clans with an iron fist. There are said to be only seven gronn in all of existence, and they are not famed for their intelligence. Nonetheless, such rumors are cold comfort in light of the undeniable fact that the gronn wield devastating power.''

Prior to the orcish invasion of [[Azeroth (world)|Azeroth]], the [[ogre]]s told the orcs that they were beaten and whipped by the gronn (many ogres bore whip scars on their backs). The ogres rebelled against the gronn with the assistance of [[Blackhand]] and the [[Horde (pre-Thrall)|Orcish Horde]]. The gronn later came under attack by the black dragonflight when they attempted to settle the [[Blade's Edge Mountains]]. With some unexpected help from the heroes of the [[Alliance Expedition]] the Gronn and their ogre slaves sent the black dragons flying. Since then gronn seem to have become rather fond of [[dragon]] hunting there are several fully grown adult [[black dragon]]s found impaled on spikes within the [[Blade's Edge Mountains]], whilst some gronn take related titles such as "[[Gruul the Dragonkiller]]" and "[[Gorgrom the Dragon-Eater]]". [[Baron Sablemane]], a black dragon in disguise at the [[Circle of Blood]] in the Blade's Edge Mountains has this to say: "My loathing of interruptions is overshadowed only by my hatred of Gruul the Dragonkiller and his seven sons!".

*At The Circle of Blood in Blade's Edge Mountains there is a NPC, Baron Sablemane that has this to say: "My loathing of interruptions is overshadowed only by my hatred of Gruul the Dragonkiller and his seven sons!" This complicates matters further, implying that the 7 are the sons of Gruul, and that any other "Gronn" are not counted among the seven. At the very least, this seems to invalidate the "only seven in existence" statement.
 
 
 
==Speculation==
 
{{speculation}}
 
Given that both Durn and Maggoc are described as Gruul's sons, Gruul may be the first Gronn, or else the being who created them (if this is the case, then Gruul might not count towards the total of seven). Given the use of the term "demigod," it's logical to assume that Gronn are comparable in power to the Azerothian variety, such as [[Malorne]], [[Cenarius]], or [[Aviana]].
 
   
But, among the demigods of Azeroth, there are huge differences in power. There are the mightiest demigods, such as Malorne, Cenarius, Aviana, [[Agamaggan]], [[Ursol and Ursoc]], but then there are the lesser ones, such as the little guy with the sickle, the six-legged wolverine, the tiny fox among others.

It is most probably so, that the seven gronn are demigods, but that there are differences in power amongst them, just as with their Azerothian counterparts. Gruul the Dragonkiller is the mightiest one; as mighty as Cenarius, Malorne or Aviana, albeit in a different way, while the other gronn, Durn, Maggoc, Nath, and the patrolling ones are lesser demigods, akin to the lesser Azerothian demigods.

Slaag

Slaag, a gronn.

Native to Outland, some say the Gronn gave rise to the lesser ogres. Yet they show little love for their children, ruling the ogre clans with a brutal iron fist. Gronn wield fearsome power; however, they are not famed for their intelligence.[1]

Prior to the orcish invasion of Azeroth, the ogres told the orcs that they were beaten and whipped by the gronn (many ogres bore whip scars on their backs). The ogres rebelled against the gronn with the assistance of Blackhand and the Orcish Horde. The gronn later came under attack by the black dragonflight when they attempted to settle the Blade's Edge Mountains. With some unexpected help from the heroes of the Alliance Expedition the Gronn and their ogre slaves sent the black dragons flying. Since then gronn seem to have become rather fond of dragon hunting — there are several fully grown adult black dragons found impaled on spikes within the Blade's Edge Mountains, whilst some gronn take related titles such as "Gruul the Dragonkiller" and "Gorgrom the Dragon-Eater". Baron Sablemane, a black dragon in disguise at the Circle of Blood in the Blade's Edge Mountains has this to say: "My loathing of interruptions is overshadowed only by my hatred of Gruul the Dragonkiller and his seven sons!".

Known GronnEdit

  • A few Mountain Gronn exist in Nagrand, near Warmaul Hill, and fight with ogres there.
  • Perhaps Nath, the ogre war god, is a gronn or an even greater demigod.
  • There is also a Gronn, albeit a lesser one, shown in a screenshot from Grim Batol But as Ettin where using the gronn model as a placeholder during Beta, it could be an ettin instead.

Warlords of DraenorEdit

Gronn

Gronn in Warlords of Draenor

In the upcoming expansion, players see an earlier, larger version of the gronn on Draenor. These gronn are subjugated by the Iron Horde to serve in their armies.

SpeculationEdit

Questionmark-medium
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Given that most of the named Gronn are described as Gruul's sons, Gruul may be the first gronn, or else the being who created them.

Also, according to information regarding the temples of the damned built during the Second War, it is said that they were built using the remains of the "Giants of Draenor," which may or may not be the Gronn.

TriviaEdit

  • On the Burning Crusade teaser site Gronn were once described as immortal demi-gods. It was also stated that only seven were thought to be in existence.[2]
  • Goc and Maggoc may be references to the ogres Gog and Maggog.
