Grunts are the first and last line of the Horde's defense. These powerful fighters arm themselves with mighty battle-axes and display all of the savagery and cunning of their race. In past generations, Grunts were characterized by their depravity and brutality. But now, under the visionary leadership of Thrall, the Grunts more closely resemble their savage, yet noble ancestors.

Information

The orc grunts are the most expensive in terms of gold and food than the basic melee infantry of the other factions. They are also the toughest, however, having a higher attack, and significantly more hit points which leads to higher survivability.[citation needed]
