Draenor, later often referred to as "Outland" after its corruption, is a world outside of Azeroth somewhere in the Great Dark Beyond. Draenor was the original home of the orcs of the Horde before most of them stormed Azeroth, where many now dwell.

About 200 years before the year 0, the draenei traveled to this land, attempting to escape the grasp of Sargeras and the Burning Legion.
