Wildhammer dwarves are a race of dwarves similar to the wild dwarves although they are clan-based.
The wildhammer dwarves descended from the earthen like most other dwarves. Just prior to the War of the Three Hammers, Thane Khardros Wildhammer inhabited the foothills and crags around Ironforge. The wildhammer dwarves were unsuccesful during the war and moved beyond the gates of Dun Algaz. They found a city in the highlands of Khaz Modan called Grim Batol. They then thrived to restore their treasures.
Thaurissan vowed vengeance agianst Ironforge. Both Dark Iron dwarf leaders lead a two group assault on ironforge and Grim Batol. Kahrdros Wildhammer killed the commander named Modgud. Due to all the deaths on the mountain of Grim Batol the wildhammer dwarves went up to Northeron, aerie Peaks and the Hinterlands, which was a lush forest. They then built Aerie Peak, a city. In the Hinterlands the wildhammer dwarves began have close ties with nature and even taming the local gryphons.
