The subject of this article or section was part of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj, a world event that heralded the opening of Ahn'Qiraj. This is no longer available as event is permanently over as of patch 3.2.0.

The Might of Kalimdor was a combined Alliance-Horde army raised in response to the stirring of the Qiraji who were locked behind the Scarab Wall in Silithus. They were gathered at Cenarion Hold — in the center of the silithid hives that dominated the region — during the Ahn'Qiraj War Effort. After Shiromar opened the Scarab Wall and the war ended, the Alliance members of the Might of Kalimdor splintered off to continue their duty in Outland in the form of the 7th Legion. As the 7th Legion, they did battle with the threats present in Outland but are now situated in Northrend as the Alliance's elite vanguard against the legions of Naxxramas. Meanwhile, High Overlord Saurfang became commander of the Kor'kron Guard, the Horde counterpart of the 7th Legion, in Northrend against the forces of the Scourge.

Saurfang's Speech

High Overlord Saurfang stands before the Might of Kalimdor.
High Overlord Saurfang yells: I am Saurfang. Brother of Broxigar. You know me to be the Supreme Commander of the Might of Kalimdor. An orc - a true orc warrior - wishes for one thing: To die in the glory of battle against a hated enemy. Some of you have fought in battles. Peace has been with us for many years. Many years we sat idle but many years we battled. In those years - where strife, the land and Legion and Scourge, sacked our homes, killed our families — these insects dwelled beneath us. Beneath our homes — waiting. Waiting to crush the life from our little ones. To slay all in their path. This they do for their god. And for our gods? We defend. We stand. We show that as one. United. We destroy. Their god will fall. To die today, on this field of battle, is to die an orcish death. To die today is to die for our little ones. Our old ones. Our … loved ones. Would any of you deny yourselves such a death? Such an honor?
