Warder Stilgiss is a level 56 elite rare mob dwarf mini-boss found in the Black Vault in Blackrock Depths, with his pet darkhound, Verek. He appears on the threshold of the Coffer Room. If he is not there, there will be three dwarf guards instead.
Unlike most of the other demon dogs in BRD, Verek is *not* particularly sensitive to stealthed characters. On stealth runs, this duo is easy to distract and sneak by. Once past, you can pull them into the coffer room and kill them. The dog is stunnable, Stilgiss is not. The icon is still rare, even though it isn't any more.
After years of dedication to Emperor Thaurissan, the cunning mage Stilgiss was entrusted with protecting his clan's coffers in the Black Vault. The loyal dwarf's close friend Houndmaster Grebmar celebrated the occasion by gifting one of his vicious dogs--Verek--to Stilgiss. The mage has put the beast to good use, keeping it at his side to scare off the vault's would-be thieves.
