In the RPG
These free-swimming mollusks are fairly aggressive. They are more feared than sharks in some locales. A squid can emit a cloud of jet-black ink ten feet high by ten feet wide by ten feet long once per minute. The cloud provides total concealment, which the squid normally uses to escape a losing fight. All vision within the cloud is obscured. A squid can jet backward at great speed in a straight line.
Northrend and the Eye of the Maelstrom are home to giant squid. These voracious creatures can have bodies more than 20 feet long and attack almost anything they meet. An opponent can attack a giant squid’s tentacles with a sunder attempt as if they were weapons. If a giant squid is currently grappling a target with the tentacle that is being attacked, it usually uses another limb to make its attack of opportunity against the opponent making the sunder attempt. Severing one of a giant squid’s tentacles deals damage to the creature. A giant squid usually withdraws from combat if it loses five tentacles. The creature can regrow severed limbs within several days. They in turn are hunted by cachalot whales.
Due to their similar appearances, squids may be related to merciless ones.
