Wendigos are a family of huge bipedal ape-like creatures that make their lairs in mountains. They have a thick brow ridge and a flat nose akin to the primates of Kehjistan. Large but agile, these creatures are most often found in the wilderness, but are also reported to occupy the caves and dungeons of the Western Kingdoms. They are hunted for their pelts, which are highly prized by the wealthy.
Previously, Wendigos and their sub-species existed peacefully with humans, avoiding contact whenever possible. Chaos' ill effects changed them, and they entered a state of perpetual frenzy. Now, they are quick to anger and attack with huge, sweeping blows of their massive claws. Once provoked, they do not relent until their opponent is slain or they themselves have fallen. Few live to tell the tale of an angered Wendigo, but those that have exclaim how nothing is more terrifying than the sound of these angry creatures bearing down on the attack.
Wendigo can be fairly deadly in large groups though individually, they are generally weak since they wear little to no armor and players can dispatch them normally in 2-4 blows.

- Sources differ on when the Wendigos became corrupted. To Hell and Back and The Awakening state that in the aftermath of the Darkening of Tristram, Fallen and Corrupt Rogues drove these creatures into warmer and more populated regions. Moon of the Spider claims that by this time, the Wendigos had been corrupted by the Prime Evils generations ago.
