Rethilgore, having already been killed in the past, has a chance to be summoned as a ghost worgen by Baron Silverlaine when his health is brought to ~25%. He does not drop any loot nor does he say anything during the fight.

Main article: Baron Silverlaine


Rethilgore was a level 20 elite worgen found in Shadowfang Keep.

Rethilgore was the first mini-boss that players encountered in Shadowfang Keep. He guarded the cells of both Horde 15 Deathstalker Adamant and Alliance 15 Sorcerer Ashcrombe which players needed to progress further into the keep.


One of the most vicious worgen, Rethilgore was entrusted by Archmage Arugal to guard the prisoners who were caught breaking into Shadowfang Keep. These included Deathstalker Adamant, Sorcerer Ashcrombe, and Landen Stilwell.

Rethilgore was not very hard to kill. He did 54-62 physical damage in melee, mitigated by armor. He would cast Soul Drain, which immobilized a player for 10 seconds and drained 35 health, healing himself with it. The easiest way to beat him was to just bring him down with attacks and spells. Players had to look out for worgs and wolves around him. They were weak, so could be killed quickly.
