A flesh giant in Northrend.
Another flesh giant in art.
The term flesh giant refers to two different, yet possibly related, creations of the Scourge. Both are, as the name states, giants made out of flesh. Either type would appear to be the next step up from the more common abomination.
Flesh giant (Northrend)
From The Wrath of the Lich King Bestiary:
- The same dark sorcery used to command the Scourge's powerful abominations is utilized to even greater effect in the harsh and distant realm of Northrend. Here the Lich King has focused his malefic powers on flesh giants: nightmarish creatures that make abominations look tame by comparison. Scourge minions assemble flesh giants and abominations in a similar manner, piecing them together out of body parts from numerous corpses. Unlike abominations, though, the "spare parts" used to create flesh giants are harvested from multiple types of fearsome Northrend giants.
- These living battering rams employ tremendous brute strength in carrying out the inexorable will of their loathsome master. Those who oppose the flesh giants take their lives into their own hands... and risk a fate even worse than death.
Named flesh giants
- Their model was changed in China due to not being allowed to show bones. Interestingly, they use the model of a storm giant, true to their background.
Flesh giant (Naxxramas)
Some flesh giants appear to be equipped with syringes, tubes, and other technology. A horrific combination of flesh and machine, they appeared for the first time in the halls of Naxxramas.
The prototype flesh giant, Grobbulus, is encountered in Naxxramas and two others can be encountered elsewhere.
