Lore

Warcraft Wiki icon.pngThis section uses content from the Warcraft Wiki.
Velarok is a drake of the black dragonflight. His humanoid form is a human male named Velarok Windblade. Despite being described as "an ancient black dragon", Velarok uses a drake model.
As Velarok Windblade, Velarok is a level 55 quest giver located southeast of Thorium Point in the Searing Gorge. Next to him are several Mutilated Dark Iron Remains. He told a (fabricated) tale of his father's slaughter at the hands of the Dark Iron dwarves and urged adventurers who crossed his path to help him avenge his father's death. When his quests were completed, he assumed his true form of Velarok the Deceiver before flying off to Blackrock Mountain. As a reward to the adventurers, he did not kill them, instead commanding his servant to give them "trinkets".
Following Nyxondra's escape from captivity, she called for help from the rest of the Black dragonflight to help hunt down  Rheastrasza and the Purified Black Dragon Egg. Velarok responded to the call, leading a vanguard of black whelps and Darkflight Soldiers. He arrives in the Badlands in his drake form, this time going by the name of Velarok the Annihilator. He was eventually killed on Rhea's orders by Horde and Alliance mercenaries.
