Wamasu are dangerous reptiles native to Black Marsh. They are predominantly found in Shadowfen, Blackwood, and Murkmire, but some have been sighted in Upper Craglorn as well as Grahtwood. A single spectral wamasu is summoned during combat by The Storm King in Skyreach Catacombs.

Wamasu lay eggs to reproduce. These eggs emit lightning as the embryo fertilizes and grows. Once the lightning is gone, the egg is ready to hatch.
