- The Wrothgar Mountains have been home to northern Tamriel's Orcs since the beginning of recorded history. Invading armies have marched into these peaks countless times to suppress the fractious Orcs, but the clans always rise again.
|Northeastern High Rock|
Wrothgar is a region situated in northeastern High Rock, north of Stormhaven. It was the first new neutral PvE zone with content for solo players and small groups to be released for Elder Scrolls Online. Orsinium, the ancestral capital of the Orsimer, is located in the eastern mountainous area within this region. King Kurog has declared Wrothgar as a "truce zone"; all adventurers are welcome, but agents of the Alliance War will not be tolerated here. There is animosity in the region between the followers of King Kurog, who are devoted to the ideals of Trinimac, and the chiefs of the Orcish clans, who follow the Code of Malacath.
