Swampwalkers are timberlings that can be found in the Swamp of Sorrows.
In the RPG
This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.
Swampwalkers are similar to most timberlings, but are darker green in color. They dwell almost exclusively in swamps, defending their territory from any intruders. A swampwalker is naturally stealthy and usually lurks just under the surface of the water, lashing out at any creature that comes near. Swampwalkers stand 7 feet high and weigh 300 pounds. They can flatten themselves down to as short as 2 feet, usually to hide in brambles or underwater. Swampwalkers attack indiscriminately, lurching toward any opponent within range. They particularly loathe fire and go after anyone holding or wielding a flame, no matter how small or inoffensive the flame may seem.
- Swampwalkers are classified as elementals in World of Warcraft, but this is due to gameplay reasons. They are actually plants according to lore.
