|The Abominable Greench|
The Abominable Greench is an elite yeti that resides in the snowy region of the western peak of the Alterac Mountains (now part of Hillsbrad Foothills) within Growless Cave[43, 40]. He only appears during the height of winter and probably lives on a seasonal hibernation cycle. When he does appear, however, he must satiate a savage hunger and constantly scrounges for food. He is known to attack travelers passing through the mountains, taking their entire food supply. Since the employees of Smokywood Pastures make use of the mountain routes to transport their goods, they are often hindered by the Greench's annual awakening and lose some amount of their rations to his voracious appetite. Interestingly, he seldom lasts long on PvE realms due to masses of players of both factions swarming him each time he spawns.
