Noteworth Trash Mobs
The Shadowfang Moonwalker is a Worgen-like mob located primarily in the courtyard of Shadowfang Keep. They have one notable ability, Anti-Magic Shield, which makes them immune to all magical spells for 10 seconds.
Strategy: The Strategy to deal with the Moonwalkers is less about gameplay and more about group composition. Make sure to bring at least one additional melee class aside from the tank to this dungeon. Two extra melees would be even better to burn down the moonwalkers faster during their magic immunity phase.
Wailing Guardsman is a ghostly humanoid mob that can be found on the upper levels of Shadowfang Keep. They have one primary ability, Screams of the Past, which silences all players within 5 yards for 5 seconds.
Strategy: Make sure your spellcasting classes remain at least 5 yards away from the guardsmen, especially your healer so that they do not get silenced.
Rethilgore is a level 20 elite Worgen located in the first room of Shadowfang Keep.
Rethilgore is a tank and spank in the truest sense of the word. His only ability, Soul Drain, is negligable. He also has a moderately low health pool and a Loot table comparable to his difficulty. The only thing you should be aware of are the mobs surrounding him, 2 of which should be pulled prior to engaging the boss. The one mob that will remain, a Bleak Worg, should be polymorphed or burned down first prior to switching dps to Rethilgore.
Fel Steeds/Shadow Charger
The Fel Steed and Shadow Charger are level 20-21 horses that are located in the stable of the courtyard of Shadowfang Keep. They are non-aggressive mobs.
These horses deal an incredibly high amount of damage and pulling one of them will pull all three, regardless of how carefully you pull the first mob. Make sure to polymorph at least one of the horses and have a hunter or warlock pet tank the second while your main tank and DPS is focused on the third before cycling to the next mob. Your healer should be aware of the massive amount of damage that will be incoming during this encounter.

Baron Silverlaine is a level 24 elite human located in the mess hall of Shadowfang Keep.
Veil of Shadow
What makes Baron Silverlaine challenging is his higher level (24) and his primary ability, Veil of Shadow. This ability reduces healing effects on a target by 75%, effectively serving as a beefed up mortal strike. Make sure your hybrid classes are assisting the healer here with tank healing as the tank will go down quickly otherwise.

Archmage Arugal is a level 26 elite mage located in the final room of SFK. He is the last boss of the dungeon.
Arugal”s CurseShadow PortThundershockVoid Bolt
Arugal is by far the hardest boss in the dungeon. His Void bolts hit for a MASSIVE amount of damage, and his teleport makes him difficult to lock down. To make this as easy as possible, have your ranged DPS stand on the platform as soon as you enter his room. They should be able to DPS Arugal down from that point no matter where he teleports. Have your melee DPS stand there as well and wait for Argual”s teleport to their location, so they don”t end up LOSing the healer while trying to chase him down. This is a tough fight, but if you stand in the proper location at the start of the room, you will be fine.
