In the RPG[]

Icon-RPG This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

Tainted ones are worgen with exceptionally vicious claws and improved combat abilities. They look almost identical to standard worgen, except that they are perhaps a bit taller while standing erect. An opponent typically doesn't know he's facing a tainted one instead of a regular worgen until his foe howls. They stand almost 7 feet high and weigh up to 300 pounds.[1]
