Worgs are cunning predators closely related to wolves, but larger and with greater intelligence.

Orcs use a larger variety of worgs as their mount. The Scarshield Legion utilizes worgs as powerful attack dogs, and also possess a pair of enormous worgs, Gizrul and Halycon.

In the RPG

They grow 10 feet long and weigh over 1000 pounds. Like normal wolves, their pelts range in color from pitch black to gray, brown, and even snowy white. Worgs live for the hunt, both for the sheer joy of it and because their larger bodies require large amounts of meat. Some humanoid races value worgs as steeds due to their increased intellect, but a worg's foul disposition turns away many trainers. Instinctive pack hunters, worgs prefer to attack in tandem. They enjoy surrounding an opponent, tripping him up, and then attacking relentlessly as he tries to rise. A badly wounded worg usually flees.[1]

A new type of worg has been seen in Northrend, a more fierce-looking predator. They are also known as saber worgs. These can mostly be found in Howling Fjord, Grizzly Hills, Borean Tundra, and the Storm Peaks.

  • Garwal, a worgen wolfcultist in Howling Fjord, uses worg form.
  • The Wargs, or Wild Wolves, are a race of fictional wolf creatures in J. R. R. Tolkien's books about Middle-earth. They are usually in league with the Orcs, whom they permit to ride on their backs into battle. (More generally, "warg" is also an Old English word for "large wolf".) The word was also used to describe Fenrir and his sons Sköll and Hati in Norse Mythology.
