Ramstein the Gorger is a level 51 elite abomination living in the burning city of Stratholme under the command of the Scourge.

Like all abominations he is not particularly intelligent, and relying on his sense of tactics is an exceptionally poor idea. He is fearless, tenacious, and resilient, capable of pressing his advantage in combat for hours without growing weary or weak. He is responsible for the death of thousands, including ranger lord Nathanos Marris. Marris, now undead and working for the Forsaken under the name Nathanos Blightcaller, wants Ramstein killed.

History

After Sylvanas freed Nathanos, he hunted Ramstein across the Plaguelands for months. The abomination eventually fled to the safety of Stratholme.[1]

Dungeon Journal

Ramstein is one of the Scourge's most infamous abominations, a horror stitched together from numerous corpses and empowered by a ceaseless hunger. This monster committed unspeakable atrocities on countless innocent souls when Scourge forces overran Stratholme.

Abilities

  • Inv gauntlets 05.png  Knockout — Ramstein the Gorger inflicts Physical damage to his current target, knocking them back and stunning them for 4 sec.

Strategy

Ramstein hits like a truck but moves exceptionally slowly. From time to time he will stun the tank and go for a random target. Because of this, it's best to fight him in an open area. He moves so slowly that it's easy to stay out of the way until the tank recovers and regains aggro. In an enclosed space, someone will most likely die.
