Humans (aka mankind or humanity) are a resilient species native to the world of Azeroth. Many live in the Eastern Kingdoms, once known as the Azotha. They founded three kingdoms that banded together in the Second War.
Humans native to Northrend were often forced into slave labor in the magnataur kingdoms of ancient history. Since the Third War, the kingdom of Stormwind has led humanity and is a powerful stronghold of the Grand Alliance.
