Saber cats (or sabercats and sabers) are a special type of large fanged cat, similar to the (extinct) sabertooth cats of real world. They come in a variety of colors and have either spotted or striped coats, the striped type being the more common. Night elves carry a special affinity for sabers and use them as mounts, which are available for purchase in Darnassus.
- Corrupted Saber is the result of felines that drink waters of the corrupted moonwell in the Ruins of Constellas.
- Ghost sabers are occasionally summoned by looting relics found in Darkshore.

In the RPG
Saber cats are proud magnificent felines that have helped the night elves against foes of all sorts since Kalimdor was first settled. The great cat moves with fluid grace along the mountainsides of Kalimdor, its golden eyes gleaming with intelligence. They are intelligent and loyal when domesticated, but are feral and quite aggressive when left in their natural environments.
