The Deathguard are the bulk of the Forsaken military force. They are mostly deployed to the Tirisfal Glades, Silverpine Forest, and the Hillsbrad Foothills, as well as Northrend with the Hand of Vengeance under the Horde Expedition.
In the RPG
Capable of enduring vastly harsher conditions than living troops, the tireless Deathguard can march for days, even weeks. The Forsaken can disguise themselves as dead or dying soldiers in the colors of intruding forces. Sometimes the Deathguard will dig ambushes, lying still under the earth to erupt forth upon the proper signal.
Equipment and weaponry
Generally, the Deathguard avoids heavy armour as the standard issue, at most using shields, since lighter equipment increases march speed and allows better mobility in the field of battle.
