    Smile Difference between Wolves and Worgs?

    What's the real difference between wolves and worgs? What do orcs ride, wolves or worgs? Mean some sources say they ride Dire Wolves, while other sources say they ride Worgs?

    First, Orcas don't ride either, they live in the ocean

    From Wowwiki: Worgs are cunning predators closely related to wolves, but larger and with greater intelligence. They grow 10 feet long and weigh over 1000 pounds. It goes on to state that they are used as mounts by some tribes.
    In DnD Worgs are magically infused wolves.

    Also from wowwiki: Dire wolves look like normal wolves, but these creatures are nearly twice the size. These powerful beasts, 8-9 feet long and weighing 600-800 pounds, are the most well-known orc mounts.

    I would take this to mean that some tribes ride Worgs and some tribes ride Dire Wolves.

    Sorry, I corrected it, it's my stupid spell correct. I meant to say orcs.

    Funny, I corrected it. I meant orcs not orcas.

    Theyre just like regular wolves, only really dire which is basically the same thing as worg. It's kinda like some like to call fire breathing giant lizards dragons and some like to call them worms(they aren't even pink and slimy most of the time).

    While they look alike, Wolves are generally the dog sized variety while Worgs are giant mount sized wolves.

    This is extremely informative.

    Worgs are larger, much smarter and meaner, making them ideal war beasts. They tend to feature more pronounced lower canines than regular wolves (The Northrend variety feature larger upper canines, much like a sabertooth cat)

    Dire Wolves are like regular wolves, only larger and more dire. They also seem to only be native to Outland-- they're what the Frostwolves tamed/befriended.
    New Signature in development. Legion Windwalker is a garbage class that I no longer wish to play.
    Blackrock Foundry was probably the best part of WOD, but that's really just a blackhanded compliment.

    Wyrms you mean but yeah wyrms (depending on source) are just really old dragons though some are portrayed as wingless, snake-like dragons.

    Generally speaking, Worgs are magic intelligent creatures.
