Stitches, the Terror of Darkshire, is a melee warrior hero from the Warcraft universe.[1] Take care when traversing the shadowed trails of Duskwood... Ever since Abercrombie the Embalmer unleashed his abomination upon Darkshire, Stitches has wandered the road aimlessly, hungering for the flesh of low level Alliance players.

Stitches is a heavy front-line fighter that can use Hook to drag enemies to him. Emits a gas cloud when he takes damage.[2]

Background[edit | edit source]
