|Theater of operations|
The Deathguard is the bulk of the Forsaken military force. Its members are simply called as deathguards. They are mostly deployed to the Tirisfal Glades, Silverpine Forest, and the Hillsbrad Foothills, as well as Northrend with the Hand of Vengeance under the Horde Expedition.
During the Legion Invasions, some of them could spawn at the Northern Barrens, Hillsbrad Foothills, and at Tanaris to help their allies defend against the Legion. They also accompanied Warchief Windrunner to Stormheim.

Capable of enduring vastly harsher conditions than living troops, the tireless Deathguard can march for days, even weeks. The Forsaken can disguise themselves as dead or dying soldiers in the colors of intruding forces. Sometimes the Deathguard will dig ambushes, lying still under the earth to erupt forth upon the proper signal.
Equipment and weaponry
Generally, the Deathguard avoids heavy armor as the standard issue, at most using shields, since lighter equipment increases march speed and allows better mobility in the field of battle.
- Executors could be the commanders of the Deathguard.
- The old Seekers and the Dreadguards may be members of the Deathguard.
