|Race||Charred behemoth (Giant)|
|Location||Torghast, Tower of the Damned|
The Tarragrue is a huge, extremely powerful charred behemoth who can spawn in Torghast, Tower of the Damned. If the player or the group reach a certain amount of deaths in a single run, the Tarragrue will appear at the entrance of the current level and begin slowly moving towards its end. If he spots any players, he will hunt them down and kill them. Depending on how far into the current level the third death falls, the exit may still be reached in time. If the Tarragrue reaches the end of the level or kills all players in the level, the run will end and the players will get thrown out of Torghast. While exceedingly powerful, certain anima powers may allow for its defeat.
Notes and trivia
- The Tarragrue's name is a portmanteau of two famous monsters from other fantasy games: the Tarrasque from Dungeons & Dragons and the grue from Zork. See also the Brue.
- Early in the Shadowlands alpha, killing the Tarragrue would cause him to transform into a steak.
- The Tarragrue will appear as a raid boss encounter in the Sanctum of Domination. The death counter will also be removed in 9.1, likely resulting in the removal of the Tarragrue from Torghast.
- Patch 9.0.2 (2020-11-17): Added.
