The Shadowmoon Exiles are a splinter group of the Shadowmoon Clan, who opposed Grand Shaman Ner'zhul's decision to join the Iron Horde and invoke the (traditionally taboo) power of the Dark Star. Though Ner'zhul had forsaken this tradition -- forsaken even his ancestors -- solely to save their people from Grommash Hellscream's wrath, the Shadowmoon Exile orcs nonetheless chose to leave. They assist the draenei and the Alliance in undoing Ner'zhul's work, hoping to end his madness before it's too late.
The Shadowmoon Exiles are led by Rulkan, Ner'zhul's ex-mate.
