Dextren Ward is a level 26 elite human mini-boss in the Stormwind Stockade. He is particularly dangerous because he can cause fear, very deadly in a small cramped instance like The Stockade. It is recommended you clear all mobs in nearby rooms before attempting him.


Ward was caught selling bodies from the Raven Hill Cemetery to Morbent Fel. Councilman Millstipe wants Dextren's cold, dead hand.

  • This is a reference to The Case of Charles Dexter Ward by H.P. Lovecraft.
  • Apparently Dextren does not appear in every instance of Stockades. If he does appear he will be in one the rooms at the extreme end of the left hall (from the entrance). Leaving and reentering the instance may cause Dextren to disappear.
  • A chest will sometimes appear by Ward. It is especially important to grab this if it appears, as the instance is very sparse on loot.
