Felguard elites have proven themselves in combat, and are given additional power and authority by the Burning Legion; they serve as sergeants and squad leaders. Much larger than normal felguard, the elites stand out among their kin. They carry a particularly nasty type of halberd they refer to as a "netheraxe" (a large unholy halberd); this weapon is both a symbol of rank and a useful tool against the virtuous. Felguard elite are about fourteen feet tall and weigh roughly 2,600 pounds. Felguard elite fight like their lesser counterparts, but are better at both giving and following orders.
