While you are exploring the vast, desolate continent of Northrend, you might hear a bellow, more like a howl, that will bring chills to your bones that not even the cold wind of Northrend can. These howls are actually from creatures that only few have seen, creatures that are told in hushed tones for fear of arousing their wrath. These creatures are called Wendigos. If you happen to see one and get out of the experience unscathed, then consider yourself lucky. A Wendigo is known to attack a friendly traveler as much as it will attack an enemy. If you want to know about these mysterious and ferocious beats, then read on. Below are some information regarding them that might prove useful in the future.
A Wendigo is actually a humanoid. The difference is that they resemble ogres more than humans. They have large bodies and can stand up to ten feet. Their bodies are covered in white, thick, and furry hair. On its head, a pair of big, sharp horns protrudes and curls, like a ram's. Two tusk-like teeth also stick out of their mouths. The feet and hands of these creatures have claws, and these are their primary weapons. Wendigos move in a slouched manner, using their hands as walking appendages as well. Their appearance would automatically inspire fear, especially with that grin on their face caused by the protruding tusks.
Wendigos are a bit of a conundrum. They're definitely fierce and territorial. They would attack anyone or anything that wanders into their turf and overstays their welcome. However, they will wait and not IMMEDIATELY attack, seeming to give travelers a chance to get away. They love human and orc flesh. However, there have been some reports that they've protected human villages from threats. In general, a Wendigo would rather avoid battle, than tax himself with it and possibly end up hurt. But when this creature is angered, or when his family is threatened, the only way to stop the creature would be to kill it.
How To Fight Them:
Although there's not a lot of information known about these creatures, one can assume that they're likely going to be slow. This is an advantage since you can use constant movement to avoid a Wendigo attack. Also, these creatures are solitary by nature, meaning you won't have to deal with a lot of them at one time. That's another advantage for you and your team. The last advantage comes with the fact that Wendigos are dumb, almost to the level of Ogres, but not too dumb that they would still fight when they know they're in a disadvantage. If you and your team are smart enough, defeating these creatures would be easy work. Happy hunting!
