Giant frost wolf
- For the Warcraft III unit, see Giant Wolf (Warcraft III).
Giant frost wolves are a type of frost wolf. The tauren believe that giant frost wolves are touched by the spirits of winter, and are granted some of their power. Whatever the case, these gigantic blue-gray furred creatures are most common in the far north. They are unafraid of humans or other races and hunt them as much as any other prey. Giant frost wolves are much like larger versions of dire frost wolves, though they are notably less timid. They do hunt in packs but rely on simple tactics -- two halves of the pack converge on a victim with great speed. They are also found in Northrend, where they are hunted by ice trolls.
