Jormungand roams the realm of Bronze Dragonflight in search of monsters to slay. Once he has found an appropriate monster, he loiters in the area until the local inhabitants offer a reward, and then ambushes it while it is unaware. In this way he has built up vast fortunes with which he bribes formerly harmless humanoids to go on the rampage so he can rid the townsfolk of them.
The last recorded sighting of Jormungand was somewhere in the Burning Steppes, where he was reportedly investigating the summoning of Ragnaros. However many claim to have seen him since, although most of these witnesses have recently died in mysterious circumstances.
