Telmor was a hidden draenei-populated city that was once located in Talador on Draenor, now Outland's Terokkar Forest. It was built on a mountainside and was the closest draenei settlement to Auchindoun. The city was located in the middle of ogre country and made invisible by a protective spell using Leafshadow, a shard of the Ata'mal crystal.[1]

The city's leadership resided in the magister's seat, a building that also welcomed Velen whenever he visited.[2]

When Restalaan and his draenei party had rescued the young orcs Durotan and Orgrim who were under attack by an ogre, they were escorted to Telmor and Durotan witnessed the incantation that deactivated Leafshadow's concealing spell.[1]

Later, when the orcs started a war against the draenei, Durotan was forced by the new Warchief Blackhand to lead a war party of over a hundred mounted warriors and warlocks to Telmor, among them Frostwolf, Blackrock, Warsong and Shattered Hand orcs. Orgrim Doomhammer and Guthor were the other leaders beyond Durotan. Unfortunately, Durotan had an excellent memory and was able to recall how to remove the invisibility spell from Telmor, leaving the nearly undefended city open to attack.[3] As a result, the city was taken over and completely destroyed, and Restalaan was killed.[2]

After this, the city was offered to Durotan and his clan but he refused, so Blackhand and his Blackrock orcs gained control of the city. This led to the Blackrocks temporarily relocating to the city, with Blackhand appropriating the magister's seat for his family and the clan members starting to use draenei tools and wear draenei clothing for a brief period instead of their own tribal garments.[4]


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

The alternate Draenor depicted the ruins of the Ango'rosh ogres nearby, so it is likely that the Ango'rosh tribe were the ogres originally in control of the area.

Given Telmor's position south of Auchindoun, it was presumably lost when Draenor was destroyed and became Outland.
