The branded are the corrupted minions that serve the Elder Crystal Dragon Kralkatorrik. They are twisted, crystalline corruptions of their past selves with varying degrees of mutations and diminishment. In large, their innards have seem to be changed to glowing, purple, crystal and their skin grayed and torn open; those that once had fur have now lost it, and dark stone has grown atop of the skin, some becoming more stone-like than others.

They are named after the Dragonbrand, a swath of land corrupted by Kralkatorrik. Though they are almost exclusively found in the Dragonbrand, some have wandered out, assaulting nearby structures, wildlife, and travelers they come across. While most were corrupted at the same time as the Dragonbrand, the Sentinel forces combating the Branded as well as the invading ogres from the Blazeridge Mountains have been slowly adding to their numbers.

The Branded have been migrating south ever since Kralkatorrik flew towards the Crystal Desert, mostly along the Dragonbrand but due to its swerve just north of Stronghold of Ebonhawke, some find their way into the Sniper's Woods. They are also drawn by the energies which the chaotic storms of the Dragonbrand, dubbed Brandstorms, exude.

In the Crystal Desert, Kralkatorrik had forced out many local ogre kraals and blockaded northern trade routes through the Desert Highlands with his branded.
