Ramstein the Gorger is a level 61 elite abomination living in the burning city of Stratholme under the command of the Scourge.

Like all abominations he is not particularly intelligent, and relying on his sense of tactics is an exceptionally poor idea. He is fearless, tenacious, and resilient, capable of pressing his advantage in combat for hours without growing weary or weak. He is responsible for the death of thousands, including ranger lord Nathanos Marris. Marris, now undead and working for the Forsaken under the name Nathanos Blightcaller, wants Ramstein killed.

Rammen Stein is a literal translation for ramming stone. Rammstein means battering ram and is a gear check boss that hits notably hard.

The Lightning Bolt is a reference to Frankenstein's Monster, one may recall early hollywood depictions had him with a large square forhead with protruding Bolts for conducting the electricity that had animated him.


Ramstein hits like a truck but moves exceptionally slowly. From time to time he will stun the tank and go for a random target. Because of this, it's best to fight him in an open area. He moves so slowly that it's easy to stay out of the way until the tank recovers and regains aggro. In an enclosed space, someone will most likely die.
