Dire orcs are a race of orcs that are large and brute in strength. They appear in the "World of Warcraft" series.
It appears the dire orcs are experimented subjects that have somehow been heavily mutated. How they are created exactly is unclear, but the Twilight's Hammer cult seems to know how. Most of these kind of orcs are with the Horde, but a few are evil.
When the Burning Legion had control over Draenor's remnants known as the Outland, a dire fel orc is present, he is a fel-sworn of some sort.
After the fall of the Twilight's Hammer, an orc shaman by the name of Gordoth transformed into a dire orc via an elemental ascension replication error that was performed by the Dark Shaman organization.
