Grohk ▶️ is a Support Champion in Paladins, added on November 17th, 2015.

Lore[ | ]

This is Grohk's official bio currently found in his champion page in-game.


Being struck by lightning once is usually more than enough to kill someone, but after dozens of strikes, Grohk was still standing. Though it took him a while to realize it, he had been imbued with the power to control the lightning itself, and he put it to good use defending his tribe from a goblin attack that would have otherwise destroyed them.

Seeing his newfound power as a sign from the weather-spirits, the rest of the Red River orcs immediately appointed him their chieftain. When the clash of the Magistrate and Resistance escalated, he sensed a new storm of a different sort brewing and joined the battle on behalf of his tribe. As the dust settles into an uncertain future, all he seeks is a Realm where his people are safe.

This is an unofficial version of Grohk's bio intended to more clearly present all currently known information regarding him. Sources can be found here.


Following being struck several times by lighting, Grohk eventually realized he'd been imbued with electrical powers; which he used to defend his tribe, the Red River Orcs, from a goblin attack. This prompted his tribe to appoint him as chieftain, believing his powers were a sign from the weather spirits. But with the growing Crystal War, Grohk decided to join the battle between the Magistrate and Resistance himself.

This was Grohk's in-game bio prior to the The Damned Frontier update. It's no longer considered canon.

When the Realm erupted into civil war, he sensed another storm brewing and joined the battle on behalf of his tribe.

This was Grohk's bio on the official Paladins website in the extremely early days of Paladins.[2] Naturally, it's no longer considered canon


Grohk was always a bit... off. He never fit in with the other orcs. In fact, the Fire Tribe cheered when Grohk left. They laughed when he returned, proclaiming himself prophet to Vex, the Lightning God. The tribe stopped laughing when Grohk electrocuted them all. Now, Shaman to the new Lightning Orcs of the Red River, Grohk ventures into Crosswind Hold to interpret the will of Vex.

Summary[ | ]

Grohk is a support champion with a high damage output. Ghost Walk will let him become untargetable. As his primary weapon he wields his Lightning Staff that creates a channeled beam of lightning that can go up to medium range. In addition his Shock Pulse will bounce between enemy players. These abilities combined give him a great damage output. To support his team he can plant two Healing Totems at long range, which will create a healing area with no vertical limit. He takes flight with his ultimate Tempest, which will slow and strike nearby enemies all the while healing nearby allies.

Trivia[ | ]


Lore

  • Grohk is from a river located in Greenwood.[3]
  • Grohk is notable for being the only character that's completely absent from the game's lore, as while most characters receive a cinematic trailer or eventually make cameos in other champion teasers or cards, Grohk has never received either, leaving him with absolutely zero appearances beyond minor cameos in the occasional avatar or incredibly old trailer.
  • Based on a dev statement revealing Viktor to be around 5'9 or 175cm tall and comparing it to model sizes in-game and out of game, it was discovered that Grohk would be around 5'5 or 165cm tall.


Cameos

Grohk appears in the following content:


References


Concepts

  • Grohk had several design alterations during development, some minor, others vastly different, with an early piece of concept art depicting him as a human character. Eventually, they settled for his current blue orc appearance.[4][5]
  • Grohk had several icon concepts prior to the final choice being settled on.[6]


Other

  • Grohk was one of the first playable characters in Paladins.
  • Grohk's name used to be "Wog" in early alpha builds of the game.[7]
  • Grohk's Default Skin was reworked in Open Beta 62. His original appearance can be seen here.
    • Grohk's old appearance is one of the few old versions of a champion that wasn't later made available as a skin; he shares this trait with Pip and Viktor.
  • In older versions of Paladins, there used to be a number of additional recolors of default champions. For Grohk, these recolors included the Deathcap, Lichen, and Toadstool skins. Versions for Grohk's modern design were also once available.
  • Having been present in the mobile game 'Paladins Strike', Grohk received unique skins exclusive to Strike. These skins include Poseidon Grohk and Summoner Grohk.


Champion Skins

  • Grohk Collection Render Beast Icon Beast
    • This skin is likely based on more stereotypical depictions of orcs, which depict them with green skin.


  • Grohk Collection Render Tribesman Icon Tribesman
    • A tribesman is one who belongs to a group or tribe.


  • Grohk Collection Render Grohk Lobster Icon Grohk Lobster
    • This skin's name may be a reference to the song Rock Lobster by The B-52's


  • Grohk Collection Render Brimstone Icon Brimstone
    • This skin is named after the expression Fire and brimstone, which would later inspire many fictional works to adopt brimstone as the material hell is constructed from.
    • This skin's splash art appears as a spray.



  • Grohk Collection Render Chieftain Icon Chieftain
    • The line "My people need me." (▶️) may be a reference to a popular phrase that originated from an episode of the Simpsons.
    • The line "Everyone has a plan... until they get an axe in their skull." (▶️) is a reference to a quote from Mike Tyson, "Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth."
    • This skin appears in the Blue Warrior avatar.
    • This skin was originally listed as 'Exclusive', but was changed to 'Limited' when Season 3 began.[9]
