Defeated in the Second War, remnants united and are mostly apart of the New Horde, the Dark Horde, or the Fel Horde

The Orcish Horde (also known as the Old Horde) was the concerted effort of the orcs under Blackhand and later Orgrim Doomhammer to conquer the world of Azeroth, beginning with the Kingdom of Stormwind in the First War. Although they ultimately failed in conquering all of Azeroth, they completely razed the Kingdom of Stormwind and severely damaged the human, dwarven and high elven kingdoms in Khaz Modan and Lordaeron.

The Orcish Horde's remains would eventually make up the basis for the New Horde, in which many seek revenge upon the descendants of the Alliance of Lordaeron for their mistreatment of the orcish prisoners of war.
