Mage hunters are former members of the Kirin Tor that have opted to side with the blue dragonflight in the hopes of retaining power. Transformed and bolstered by Malygos, they are tasked with rooting out and, if necessary, destroying magical artifacts; killing or imprisoning individuals who practice magic without Malygos' permission; and aiding in the redirection of ley lines using massive constructs called surge needles.[1]

The mage hunters seem to not be a race, as Dragonblight Mage Hunters can be dragonspawn, drakonids, humans, or blood elves. There are Fel Hounds in the southern area of Desolace which are too named "Mage Hunter"
