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 who can use his hook to drag enemies to him. He emits a gas cloud when he takes damage.[2]

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

Stitches is an abomination found in Duskwood. Abominations are twisted, mutilated undead creatures comprised of multiple dead limbs and body parts from many different corpses. They are enormous warriors, scarred by loose stitchings and putrid, open sores. They love to carve flesh and tear their enemies apart. The slow-moving and dull-witted abominations constantly drip blood and smell like disease-ridden slaughterhouses. They carry large cleavers into combat and wield various sickle-bladed hooks on their disproportionate limbs.

Almost all abominations lack any real intelligence, having an I.Q. closest to that of an ogre on average. Abominations outwardly appear strangely joyful due to their absent-minded expressions and mannerisms, though this is most likely due to their low level of mental capacity. Like their undead cousins, abominations lust for flesh and are known to eat not only the living but the dead as well.

Abercrombie the Embalmer created Stitches as a "gift" for Lord Ello Ebonlocke, the mayor of Darkshire. Setting out from a shack near the Raven Hill Cemetery, Stiches marched through Duskwood and killed all the Night Watch guards he encountered on his way to Darkshire.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Stitches is a low-mobility Tank, capable of pulling distant Heroes to him with Hook. Stitches has a lot of Health, and a powerful self-sustain with Devour. He works best with Heroes who can follow up Hook with strong crowd control, which will help to secure picks throughout the game.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Massive Health
  • Hook can pull enemy Heroes completely out of position, allowing your team to kill them easily.
  • Hook can pull allied Heroes out of danger, or into otherwise advantageous positions.
  • Strong self-sustain with Devour
