|Ramstein the Gorger|
Like all abominations he is not particularly intelligent, and relying on his sense of tactics is an exceptionally poor idea. He is fearless, tenacious, and resilient, capable of pressing his advantage in combat for hours without growing weary or weak. He is responsible for the death of thousands, including ranger lord Nathanos Marris. Marris, now undead and working for the Forsaken under the name Nathanos Blightcaller, wants Ramstein killed.
His name may be a reference to the real world German band Rammstein, or to Ramstein-Miesenbach, a small town in Germany. It may also be a reference to the air show disaster at the town of Ramstein, particularly considering the Lightning Bolts drop. Also Ramstein with two m's means Battering Ram or Ramming Stone.
The name Rammstein is not a reference to a band or an air show tragedy (you seriously you think Blizzard would celebrate a tragedy where aircraft colided over a crowd resulting in the death of 67 spectators and 3 pilots with almost 400 people seriously injured?)., Rammen Stein is a literal translation for ramming stone. Rammstein means battering ram, and guess what? Rammstein is a gear check boss that hits like a truck.
The Lightning Bolt is not a reference to the German air show tragedy... the drop is a reference to Frankenstein's Monster, you may recall early hollywood depictions had him with a large square forhead with protruding Bolts for conducting the electricity that had animated him.
Ramstein hits like a truck but moves exceptionally slowly. From time to time he will stun the tank and go for a random target. Because of this, it's best to fight him in an open area. He moves so slowly that it's easy to stay out of the way until the tank recovers and regains aggro. In an enclosed space, someone will most likely die.
