As a hunter pet
- Main article: Dog
Mastiffs are tameable by hunters as part of the dog family, which was first added in Cataclysm. Players that start as a worgen hunter will receive a mastiff as their first pet. They come in shades of black, grey, and brown.
- Concept art for a mastiff-like breed of hounds employed by the vrykul already existed before the release of Wrath of the Lich King as the "jag hund".
- Several mobs that once used the hyena model were updated to use the new mastiff model in Cataclysm, such as the various hounds employed by the Scarlet Crusade.
- Others, like the Black Ravager Mastiff using a black wolf model, were instead removed from the game.
