Frost wolves (or frostwolves) are a species of arctic wolves native to Draenor and especially the cold heights of Frostfire. Wild frostwolves usually hunt anything they can catch, with the fastest among them eating well,[1] but some of wolves also established a deeper bond with the so-called Frostwolf clan. These wolves hunt with their orcish partners, keeping them warm when their clothes are not enough, alerting them about strangers. And in return, the clan makes sure the wolves are well fed, that their injuries are healed, and their cubs need not fear predators scouring the mountains during the birthing times.[2] The clan's wolves eventually followed their partners in Azeroth following their exile to Alterac Valley.[3]

A first-fang is the first of many shed by an adolescent frost wolf pup when their adult teeth begin growing. The Frostwolf Orcs often keep the first-fang of their animal companion as good luck charms.

Notes and trivia

  • Members of the Alliance managed to capture and domesticate some of the frost wolves of the Alterac Valley.[5]
  • The Lord of the Clans novel originally told that the frost wolves were native to the mountains of Alterac and only befriended the Frostwolf clan after their arrival.[6]
  • In the Warcraft III alpha, far seers rode wyverns. Flying heroes were later removed from the game, and the far seers were instead given frost wolves.
