Captain Galvangar will give all the Horde forces within Alterac Valley a buff which gives them a size increase and a 20% health increase for the duration.

Casting Fury of the Frostwolf
Now is the time to attack! For the Horde!
Die! Your kind has no place in Alterac Valley!
I'll never fall for that, fool! If you want a battle it will be on my terms and in my lair!

Notes and trivia

  • Galvangar 'resets' his health back to 100% if you run him out of Iceblood Garrison. (wise to Tank him at the back of the building so to avoid his fears running you out or have a warrior tank him and use [Berserker Rage] or have a shaman plant a [Tremor Totem]).
  • Galvangar appears as a legendary Warrior minion in the Fractured in Alterac Valley expansion for Hearthstone. His flavor text reads: "It wasn't the ravages of war that took Galvangar, it was hypothermia."
