The original City of the Orcs was built and razed at least three times before King Kurog decided to rebuild in a new location. At Old Orsinium most of the surface city has been obliterated, but there are still extensive ruins underground.
Old Orsinium

Old Orsinium is an Orcish ruin in western Wrothgar, located north of Bedlam Veil.

It consists of the ravaged and sieged remnants of one of the previous Orsinium. Now, only wildlife and Winterborn Reachmen inhabit it.

On the eastern side of the forges is a door leading to Old Orsinium Shrine, which you need to visit when doing Flames of Forge and Fallen. A southern exit from the shrine will lead you back to the central hub room.

Mobs have a chance to drop Anvil of Old Orsinium antiquity lead for the furnishing of the same name.

Bosses have a chance to drop Malacath's Brutal Might Loop antiquity lead for the Malacath's Band of Brutality.

The overland sets Briarheart, Mark of the Pariah, and Trinimac's Valor can drop here.[verification needed — see talk page]
