'Gorgrond', the "Land of Giants" is a dusty, humid desert-like badlands region located in northern Draenor. It is home to several former Iron Horde bastions including the Iron Docks and the Blackrock Foundry, as well as the homeland of the Gronn, both major centers and important aspects of Iron Horde industry.

Gorgrond is the most conflicted region in all of Draenor, and the combatants are not Orcs or the Iron Horde, but the Landscape itself. In Gorgrond, Ancient creatures of unrestrained creation and uncontrolled destruction battle for supremacy in a shifting line between desert and jungle, each trying to overcome the other and transform the region, and then all of Draenor. The Forces of the Primals, the Plantlike creatures of the Wildlife, and the forces of the Breakers, Rocklike creatures of the Land, constantly struggle in an eternal war as old as Draenor itself. So potent are their forces that unchecked, their power would easily overwhelm all of Draenor. Fortunately for Draenor, they are just as content to fight each other as they are to fight the mortal races.

Curiously, Gorgrond is also home to the largest number of Relics speculated to originate with the Titans, whose presence on Draenor has been vaguely confirmed, albeit to what extent is uncertain.

Gorgrond was home to major conflict during the early stages of the War against the Iron Horde and was the center of both Grand Alliance and New Horde military efforts. The region today is mostly desolate and only houses small alcoves of Iron Horde numbers, many being slain in battle or fleeing to the nearby Tanaan Jungle.
