Orgrimmar is the orc capital city and the main hub of the Horde. Located in Durotar on the continent of Kalimdor, it will be the jumping off point for most of your adventures if you’re playing a Horde character. In a sense, all roads lead to Orgrimmar: there are dozens of ways to get to and from the city, making travel between zones, continents, and even worlds a lot easier once you know where to go.

For this guide, we will focus on the three main transit centers in Orgrimmar. We’ll cover where to find them and where they go. These areas are:

  • The Orgrimmar Portal Room
  • The Orgrimmar zeppelins
  • The Cataclysm portals

The Orgrimmar Portal Room is also called the Pathfinder’s Den. It’s located inside the main gate to the city.

To find it, pass through the main gate and look for a doorway on the left. Descend the stairs and you will see the main portal room. A stairway on the left leads down to a second room with three more portals.
