How to get the Orc Heritage Armor in WoW: Dragonflight


The Orc Heritage Amor will send you back to the past to a time where Orc’s were Grunts and Peons, and only wore red and spikes!

In Patch 10.0.7 of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, two brand-new Heritage armors were added for Orcs and Humans. Inspired by the classic Orc Grunt unit from Warcraft III, the new Orc Heritage Armor allows you to relive the glory days of the Horde of old as a level 50 character. Here’s how to obtain the Orc Heritage Armor in WoW: Dragonflight

With its giant skull paldron, plenty of straps of leather, and horned shield, this is a classic Orc armor. But before you can start repping the Hoard in your Heritage Armor, there’s a few requirements you need to make sure you’ve completed:

  • Be an Orc (Obviously)
  • Be Level 50 or above
  • Reach Exalted reputation with Orgrimmar

Next head to Eitrigg in Orgrimmar, in the Throne Room, and pick up the quest A People in Need of Healing. This quest is the first in a quest line to retrieve your new armor set.

Complete the questline, which has a few nice bits of Orc lore. These include throwbacks to past expansions and games, and you’ll receive the Heritage Armor.

You’ll receive three different types of Heritage Armor that can be transmogged to all your Orc characters. These work with every class, so don’t worry about not being able to don this skull-covered classic armor set with your favorite character!

About the Orc Heritage Armor

The official name of the armor set is the Wolf’s Heritage. It comes in three different colors, the red Wolf's Heritage Warsong Armor Set, the blue Wolf's Heritage Frostwolf Armor Set, and the black Wolf's Heritage Blackrock Armor Set. This gives you the flexibility to make your new transmog look exactly how you want it!
