Hippogryphs are ancient, magical beasts whose bodies resemble both stags and ravens. They patrol the skies above Kalimdor and viciously attack any enemies of the wilds that they encounter. The intelligent Hippogryphs have given their allegiance to the Night Elves in honor of Cenarius, the Night Elves' god, who stands as the protector of nature and all its creatures.

Flying melee attack beast. Can learn the Hippogryph Taming ability. Attacks air units.

Although the Hippogryphs have the unarmored armor type, they do in fact have armor.

Hippogryphs can only attack other air units so you should only build them if you need them for scouting, to attack other air units, or plan on using them to create Hippogryph Riders.

Hippogryphs are great to use when someone builds Orc Wind Riders, Night Elf Hippogryph Riders, Human Gryphons, or Undead Frost Wyrms. After you are done using them, convert them to Hippogryph Riders.
