Mammoths are shaggy beasts that resemble elephants (or even elekks), such as having a trunk, and ear flaps. They live in Northrend and can be found in the Borean Tundra, the Dragonblight, Sholazar Basin and in Zul'Drak. With each passing day however, the numbers of those mighty beasts diminish as hunters slay the beasts for sport and riches. Combat Kaw the Mammoth Destroyer as a member of Hemet Nesingwary's hunting party is one of those hunters. After the ancient mammoth Neutral Khu'nok the Behemoth orders you to kill Kaw the mammoth of the Borean Tundra will no longer be hostile towards you.

They are used as mounts by the ice giants of the Sons of Hodir.


Mammoths were once used by giants to carry heavily armored warriors and can easily carry more than one rider of less-than-giant stature.[1] Rarely, a war mammoth is born stronger and more tractable than its peers. These mammoths are dubbed "grand" and carry more than one rider to the front lines.[2]

Ancient manuscripts depict merchants traveling across the frozen tundra with these colossal beasts, leading scholars to believe mammoths are the first domesticated mounts.[3] Riders and merchants alike trust only the strong and steadfast mammoth to carry them safely across the frigid tundra.[4]

At home on the narrow, icy trails of the Storm Peaks, the Grand Ice Mammoths are the only mounts the ice giants trust to carry large loads and multiple riders.[5]



Mammoths as Mounts

Main article: Mammoth mounts

Mammoth mounts are Epic vanity mounts that were added in Wrath of the Lich King. Some can accommodate passengers, and they all (currently) have subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) shadings for each faction. You can also try out a mammoth mount for free during a D.E.H.T.A quest and deploy its devastating charge, trample, and bellow attacks.[6]

A Mammoth in Warcraft III

The Mammoths in Warcraft III differ from those encounters in World of Warcraft. However they also live in Northrend and were capable of dealing frightening damage. In addition to their long tusks, a horny protrusion of bone juts from their foreheads and another protrudes from their backs.
