A lasher is an ambulatory plant and often hostile. They can be found in the Wailing Caverns, Maraudon, Un'Goro Crater, and Dire Maul. Lashers are elementals in-game, but in lore they are just "plants".

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade introduced new lashers in Azuremyst Isle, Bloodmyst Isle, and the Botanica.

The lashers in Un'Goro Crater are known as bloodpetals and grow in several different varieties. They are all neutral except the Bloodpetal Pest which is friendly to Alliance players and hostile to Horde players.

Note that there are a number of mobs with lasher in their name, but are not the plant lashers. Some examples are Scorpid Tail Lashers and the hydras named Vorsha the Lasher and Trigore the Lasher.


"Orchid"-type lashers

An orchid lasher.

Another type of lasher (called "orchid lasher" in the files) is similar to other lashers, but with a particularly large flower. They are prevalent in the Botanica, Azuremyst Isle, Bloodmyst Isle, Sholazar Basin, Wintergrasp, and Emerald Dragonshrine.
