Brown marmots



In World of Warcraft, the most common type of marmot, the Neutral 15 Brown Marmot, is only seen in the Blade's Edge Mountains area.

You can control another type of marmot besides the Brown Marmot, simply called a Horde 15 Marmot, when you are on the quest Horde 15 [67] The Smallest Creatures by using the [Kodohide Drum] by a cave near Bloodmaul Camp. Note that the "Brown Marmot" become the "Marmot" when controlled by a player.

The Neutral 15 Borean Marmot can be found around the Borean Tundra.

In Ulduar, Brann Bronzebeard yells to Archmage Rhydian, "Sneak?! What do you think we are, marmots?"


Brown Marmots respawn instantly when killed to prevent the quest from becoming impossible.
