Mastiffs are a breed of dogs found primarily in Lordaeron. They appear to be common pets and companions of human societies, including vrykul.[1] While mostly found domesticated, wild mastiffs can also be found in Gilneas.[2][3]

A mastiff bred for rescue, the Alterac brewhound's bloodline is famous for having found and resuscitated many mountain travelers trapped beneath the snow... and then slobbering all over them.[4]

Main article: Dog

Mastiffs are tameable by hunters as part of the dog family, which was first added in Cataclysm. Players that start as a worgen hunter will receive a mastiff as their first pet. They come in shades of black, grey, and brown.

Trivia

  • Concept art for a mastiff-like breed of hounds employed by the vrykul already existed before the release of Wrath of the Lich King as the "jag hund".
  • Several mobs that once used the hyena model were updated to use the new mastiff model in Cataclysm, such as the various hounds employed by the Scarlet Crusade.
