Warp stalkers are reptilian predators native to Draenor, now Outland. They can also be found in Eredath on Argus, having evolved completely independently from one another.[1]


Zixor, a warp stalker in Hearthstone.

Originally called stalkers or forest stalkers,[2] these predatory animals used skin with natural camouflage ability to strike,[3] as well as to sneak in and steal the eggs of their prey.[4] They were native to many areas of Draenor, and following the planet's destruction they became corrupted by the Burning Legion into warp stalkers and gained the ability to teleport by phasing in and out of the physical and astral dimensions at will.[5][6][7] This ability disturbs magical energy flows and causes spells to fizzle out wherever the creatures blink into existence, making them an annoyance to magic-users.[8][9] There are reports that Legion officers use warp stalkers as mounts.[5] After hatching, these twisted reptiles devour the weaker members of their clutches as an act of dominance.[10]

Warp stalkers are mainly found in the Blade's Edge Mountains, Terokkar Forest, and Netherstorm in Outland, as well as in Eredath on Argus. There also seems to be a breed in Vashj'ir on Azeroth, though whether these are true warp stalkers or not is unknown.

Warp stalkers that have been corrupted by the Void are known as voidstalkers.

  • There exist assets for a ridable Black Warp Stalker mount in the files for The Burning Crusade, but it was never added to the game. No NPCs—Legion officers or otherwise—are seen riding warp stalkers in-game, but warp stalker mounts were ultimately made available to players with the release of Burning Crusade Classic.
  • When lizard critters were added throughout Azeroth during World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, they used the only currently available small lizard-like model, the warp stalker. These lizard critters have no relation to actual warp stalkers.
