The Deathguard are the bulk of the Forsaken military force. They are mostly stationed in the Tirisfal Glades, Silverpine Forest, and the Hillsbrad Foothills, as well as Forsaken outposts in Northrend.

Capable of enduring conditions under which any living creature would die, the tireless Deathguard can march for days, even weeks, at a time and never grow tired. The Forsaken will often disguise themselves as dead or dying soldiers in the colors of intruding forces. Sometimes, the Deathguard dig ambushes, lying still under the earth to erupt forth upon the proper signal.[1]

The Deathguard's numbers are vast and reported to be in the hundred thousands, since the majority of risen undead serve in the Deathguard.[citation needed]
