As Grond fought the Sporemounds , pieces of his body fell off and came to life as the colossals due to the life essence that stirred within. Even though Grond was killed by Botaan , the final Sporemound, hope swelled within Aggramar at the sight of the colossals.
They were not as mighty as Grond, but they were many and their shadows still loomed over the land. Aggramar crafted great discs inscribed with titan runes from the body of Grond and fused them to the colossals, creating armor that granted them strength and resilience. In the meantime, the Evergrowth had begun to retake lands Grond had taken from it. As Aggramar unleashed the colossals against Botaan and the genesaur - creatures that were pieces of the Sporemounds just as colossals were pieces of Grond - he felt a constellar dying somewhere in the Great Dark Beyond and left to investigate with the promise he would return one day.
He never did. They were determined to bring balance to Draenor before that happened, but it was an enormous task for the Evergrowth had enveloped much of the world and Botaan now eclipsed Grond in size. Botaan rallied the genesaur and they stormed toward the colossals, which retreated into barren ravines and hills that would give them the advantage.
Botaan followed them as it saw the colossals as only pale imitations of Grond, and when it left the borders of the Evergrowth the colossals attacked with their full might. The ensuing war shook Draenor for thousands of years, with control of the world constantly moving back and forth between the two forces. Just as they had broken off from Grond, pieces of their bodies that broke off came to life as the magnaron.
The colossals called on the magnaron to fight the Evergrowth but they did not obey. Some did indeed battle the forces of Botaan, but not out of loyalty to the colossals, and others simply left the battlefield to seek out areas of volcanic activity. The titan discs that made their armor contained immense power, and that power would stop the Evergrowth. The colossals piled onto Botaan and unleashed the energy in unison, creating a massive explosion.
It shattered the bodies of Botaan and the colossals and sent the pieces all across Draenor. Over time, the scattered pieces of their bodies would sink into the ground and become veins of blackrock ore.
It affected some magnaron, turning a number of them into gronn , but legends say that a few surviving colossals were affected as well. As millennia passed, their bodies diminished and became flesh. When mortal civilizations came to power on Draenor, the colossals were long dead and only their skeletons remained. Creatures such as the orcs would discover their bones and fashion trinkets, dwellings, and weapons from them. The massive skeletons of several colossals can be found in various locations throughout the alternate Draenor.
The skull of another looms over Deadgrin. Another skull can be found far to the east off the coast of Gorgrond, submerged near two small islands that are not marked on the map. It has fungi growing out of its eye and mouth. Notes and trivia A colossal skeleton was present on the alpha version of the Ashran island.

It should not be taken as representing official lore. Upon observing Hellfire Citadel , Maiev Shadowsong described it as being built of red rock and "the bones of creatures that must have been as large as mountains".
