Useful Info

Wargs are the largest natural canines in the game and are closely tied to orcish culture. They serve as guards in and around the Orcish Mines, quickly chasing down their victims and attacking in melee. Fortunately they aren't very dangerous, but they can certainly distract you while a well-armed orc attacks you.

Tips & Tricks

  • They are resistant to poison, making them the only things in the Orcish Mines that can't be incapacitated with Mephitic Cloud. Casters relying on it should find a different way to kill them.
  • Wargs are the most powerful result from the spell Call Canine Familiar.
