Weekend Extras: Wandering Elites of Doom

March 4, 2009

My little mage made it to Outland this week. As I headed out of Thrallmar on my turquoise raptor to collect salvaged wood and metal, I reminded myself to keep my eye out for a roaming elite that has murdered every single one of my characters except the death knight (because I had learned to watch out for him by then!). Tagar Spinebreaker has taken his big, shiny axe to four of my characters and come out ahead. I had no hope for the squishy mage.

Thankfully, a bored friend hopped on his newly minted death knight and helped me through the beginning quests. When Tagar came around the corner suddenly and tried to add another couple characters to his kill list, we got him instead! After our sweet, sweet victory, my friend told me about what happened the first time he came up against Tagar. He knocked my friend over a cliff to kill him.

I have to admit, I don’t recall any spectacular deaths like that, but my characters have eaten dirt plenty of times in the years I’ve been running around Azeroth and Outland. Thinking about some of my most hated foes, I began to wonder how many I had forgotten or blocked out, so I did some searching over at Wowhead and came up with a hit list.

I tried to find all the elites that would be most likely to surprise and kill you while questing, whether Horde or Alliance. I’ve doubtlessly missed some, but I think I’ve managed to track down the majority. Take a look at the hit list and share some of your tales of death, destruction, and revenge!
