— Ivar Bloodfang

Packleader Ivar Bloodfang is a worgen and leader of the Bloodfang worgen of Silverpine Forest. Although clever and willing to form alliances with others, he doesn't hesitate to use violence, brutality, and desperate measures to get what he wants. When he witnessed Darius Crowley's decision to retreat from Silverpine, he was no longer impressed with him, but he still assisted the Alliance. He considers the Forsaken his blood enemies.[2]

During the battles in Silverpine Forest, a Horde adventurer witnessed Ivar make an alliance with Lord Darius Crowley.[3] After this, he and Crowley launched a mass of sneak attacks and ambushes on the forces of Sylvanas Windrunner, at one point even killing part of her elite guard and almost killing the Horde character along with them.[4] He also came with Darius to Fenris Isle to convert the Refugee Leadership to worgen.[5] When Sylvanas captured Lorna Crowley and used her as a bargaining chip with Darius, Ivar was shocked at his immediate retreat and surrender, going so far as to call him a miserable bastard[6] before leading his pack back into the contested Gilneas. Following the retreat, he was very close to being a feral worgen.[2]

He was later seen working with the Stormpike forces on Purgation Isle. Following the Stormpike Apocalypse Ivar was also encountered in Shadowfang Keep where he directed his Bloodfang pack and the Alliance adventurers in hunting the traitorous Lord Godfrey.

After Alliance champions defeated Deathstalker Hayward,[7] the pack led by Ivar claimed Fenris Isle. The Horde proceeded to distract the Bloodfang forces, encountering Ivar, so that evacuations from Tirisfal Glades could continue across the Lake.[8]

After this, he traveled to Darkshore with some of his pack, aiding Gilneas once again as they fight the Forsaken alongside the kaldorei.

Exploring Azeroth

When Mathias Shaw and Flynn Fairwind embarked on their journey to explore Azeroth as well as catalogue the locations of various artifacts, they visited Silverpine Forest.

Shaw noted his main contact in the area as Ivar Bloodfang, stating that the packleader was his contact within Shadowfang Keep. The pack has apparently claimed it, alongside Fenris Isle, and has taken most of the artifacts within the Shadowfang to Fenris Keep to be guarded closely.[9]

Objective of


In Shadowfang Keep

  • Attack, my brothers! Make him feel the fury of the pack!
  • The Bloodfang come for you, worgen hunters!
  • Your time has finally come, Godfrey!
  • Control yourselves! We're here for Godfrey's head above all else. Relish in the spoils of war later!
  • Crowley is a disgrace to our kind for giving in to the Forsaken. My pack will show them the true face of the worgen and the relentless fury that comes with our presence!
  • I don't know why the door is closed, heroes. My pack should have already taken care of Godfrey by now...
  • I'll make sure nothing interferes. Go now heroes! Kill Godfrey!
  • I've picked up Walden's foul scent. Fill the air with his blood!
  • Keep moving forward. My men will dispose of this sorry bag of bones.
  • Pathetic.
  • We have to push forward if we're to put an end to him. Follow me, I'll open the courtyard so that you can spearhead our assault.
  • We will stand idle no longer! The time to act is now!
  • What a pathetic lock! Godfrey is going to have to try harder than this if he wants to defeat us.
  • You'd best hurry if you want any of the spoils.
  • The Bloodfang will prevail.

In Darkshore


The Bloodfang will hunt the Forsaken to extinction.

Notes and trivia

Ivar in the beta of Cataclysm.

  • H [5-30] Seek and Destroy refers to him as Ivus Bloodfang, likely a mistake.
  • In the beta, he used a more generic-looking feral worgen model. This was changed, giving him different fur, face selection, and a unique unobtainable set of armor to differentiate him from the rest of the Bloodfang.
