Direhorns are three-horned dinosaurs making their first appearance during the Mists of Pandaria, on the Isle of Giants. These saurian titans populate many islands in the south seas including the Isle of Giants. The Zandalari have armored their tamed Direhorn and other dinosaurs for use as living war engines to aid them in defending the Throne of Thunder and their allies, the Mogu, on the Isle of Thunder.
