Top 5 Scariest (Non-Boss) Mobs in World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft is dark and full of terrifying mobs, but these five stand out above the rest.

With thousands of mobs roaming around
the World of Warcraft universe, it is difficult to keep track of them
all. Big, small, animal, human, mechanical, and many more, these guys
wait around to do battle against players. Many of them seem pretty
harmless, some might even be considered beautiful, but a certain few
manage to strike fear into every heart.

These mobs are big, bad, and totally
unforgettable. The mobs I am talking about are the things that WoW
player's nightmares of made of and can even define whole zones inside
the game. However, they tend to be forgotten in the face of the bosses in
the game. It is well past time that we take a second to honor these
big baddies for what they do, because the game would be far less
interesting. So let's take a look at the top 5 scariest non-boss mobs in
of Warcraft. Enjoy!

Core Hounds

Core Hounds, servants of the imposing
Ragnaros, are giant two-headed dogs. These guys prowl around the
Molten Core, striking fear into the hearts of any raid group who
stumbled across them. These big boys did some major damage, breathing
fire, and even picking up unsuspecting raiders, rendering them
absolutely immobile. They are also terrifying in appearance, even
compared to the Molten Giants also found in this zone. With two huge
heads, both sporting large teeth, and tendrils of yellow/orange drool
dripping, these dastardly dogs are not something one can easily

Widow Greenpaw

Sometimes you don't have to look scary
to be scary. Widow Greenpaw is the perfect example of this. Nothing
good can come from a lonely old woman living in the middle of the
woods. Ever. Combine this with the super creepy statues in her
backyard and you have something straight out of a horror novel.

Perhaps the worst part is that she
actually thinks turning people into Jade is doing her late husband a
service. While the Widow is not exactly the same as the other mobs on
this list, I am making an exception because she is so darn scary and
sad, all at the same time. This is one family that I would never want
to join.


Devilsaurs are the bane of the Un'goro
Crater. These giant dinosaur-like creatures wander randomly through
the zone and prey upon unsuspecting players. These guys are big and
sport some terrifying teeth. Those features aren't what puts these
guys on the list though.

What makes the Devilsaur stand out
above all other scary mobs is their ability to sneak up on a player. It
doesn't make sense that something so big can be so quiet, but they
are and they will scare the bejeesus out of you, right before they
attack. Their fierce looks, size, and ninja-like stealth, all combine
to easily rank the Devilsaur as one of the scariest mobs in World of

The Fel Reaver

Taking up this spot on our list is one
mob that will make you wet your pants, no matter how many times you
have encountered him. This guy is so awful that almost every player
will have a similar story of how they met him. Your first trip to
Hellfire Peninsula. You are questing, killing mobs, and enjoying the
scenery when out of no where the ground begins to shake. You brush it
off, until you hear the inhuman scream. You turn and there it is; the
nefarious Fel Reaver.

Standing taller than most buildings,
the Fel Reaver is a frightening sight. He will also wipe any low
level player out with little more than one hit of his gigantic arms.
Even today, the Fel Reaver of Hellfire Peninsula still makes players
quake in their boots, even if they are max level. This mob has the
scare factor down and will be continuing his reign of terror for a
long time to come.


These small critters wander throughout
the World of Warcraft universe and are perhaps the scariest mob of
them all. With their soft fur and unassuming appearance, most players
will write these off as harmless creatures, but nothing could be
further from the truth. Take a closer look at the Rabbit. Peer into
its beady little eyes and see the evil within. It won't be long
before you realize, as I already have, that these cute and cuddly
critters are nothing but pure poison.

While players have been off saving the
world from other nefarious creatures, these beings have remained in
the background, eating grass and plotting our demise. They have also
been reproducing, at an alarming rate. Rabbits can be found
cluttering up just about every corner of the world. Spread the word
of this villainous creature, before it is to late.
