- The following article is about a character's depiction in the alternate version of Draenor that serves as setting for the expansion Warlords of Draenor. In the normal course of events, Ga'nar was already dead before World of Warcraft and by the time of Mists of Pandaria.
Ga'nar is first encountered by the Horde expedition in the slave pits of the Iron Horde in Tanaan Jungle, where he and Drek'thar are held captive. After the destruction of the Dark Portal, he and Drek'thar lead the Horde adventurers and Thrall to Frostfire Ridge to meet up with the rest of the Frostwolf Clan. After arriving in Frostfire Ridge, he tries to encourage his clan to make a move on the Bladespire clan.
This section concerns content exclusive to Warlords of Draenor.
What happens to Ga'nar before adventurers go through the newly redirected Dark Portal to help stem the Iron Tide is not known, but many of the events and exchanges between him and Durotan before his ultimate demise are witnessed by Horde adventurers after he is freed from the Iron Horde in Tanaan Jungle.
