One of the first elite NPCs that can be fought when starting a new character is Hogger, a gnoll in Elwynn Forest wanted by Stormwind’s guards. It has been the subject of raids by level 1 characters with some difficulty.
Last week, Blizzard’s Eyonix posted a comment on the “Anti Hogger-Nerf Movement” thread in the forums:
Hogger is becoming a level 73 outdoor raid boss. His loot will remain the same, I’m afraid.
I look forward to seeing level 70’s going “LFG Hogger” on General chat.
