Description of the fields


Creature's unique id.


name entry difficulty_entry_1 difficulty_entry_2 difficulty_entry_3
Anomalus 26763 30529 0 0
Sindragosa 36853 38265 38266 38267

Anomalus is a 5 man boss located in The Nexus. You can fight him on two types of difficulties (normal dungeon and heroic dungeon). Depending on the type of difficulty, bosses have different statistics like health and damage. In case of Anomalus information from entry 26763 is used when you fight him at normal difficulty and entry 30529 is used when you fight him at heroic difficulty.

Sindragosa, a raid boss encounter located in the Icecrown Citadel can be fought on 4 different difficulties due to the introduction of heroic raid modes in Patch 3.2 (10man normal/heroic, 25man normal/heroic). Depending on the type of difficulty, she must have different statistics. So if you see her in 10man normal raid she will use information from entry 36853, in a 25man normal raid entry 38265 will be used and so on. This is in stark contrast to raid bosses such as Patchwerk and XT-002 Deconstructor, located in Naxxramas and Ulduar respectively, who only have two different raid modes (10-man 'normal'/25-man 'normal'). Hardmodes within the Ulduar raid do not have their own template, due to game mechanics engaging the harder difficulty during the encounter itself.

Here is a special case with the Alterac Valley battleground. There are 4 level brackets where the NPCs are made easier or harder, depending on your level bracket (Added in WoW patch 3.2.2 when level 80 characters received their own bracket for this battleground and all brackets below level 80 received their own level of difficulty). The same concept applies to the Isle of Conquest battleground, with only two brackets.

If you look at the database you will notice a very characteristic pattern which is summarized in table below:

name entry difficulty_entry_1 difficulty_entry_2 difficulty_entry_3
Normal Creature Different than 0 0 0 0
Dungeon Creature Normal Dungeon Heroic Dungeon 0 0
Raid Creature 10man Normal Raid 25man Normal Raid 10man Heroic Raid 25man Heroic Raid
Battleground 51- 59 60-69 70-79 80


If this is a kill credit template -- one that is a dummy template that is used when more than one creature can count as a kill in a quest, then this is a link to the first entry of the creature that could be killed to give quest credit.


If this is a kill credit template -- one that is a dummy template that is used when more than one creature can count as a kill in a quest, then this is a link to the second entry of the creature that could be killed to give quest credit. If more than two creatures can be killed and count toward a single objective, an smart or C++ script will be required.

Note: This field also controls the creature family assistance mechanic. Only creatures with the same faction will assist each other.


A bitmask that represents what NPC flags the creature has. Each bit controls a different flag and to combine flags, you can add each flag that you want, in effect activating the respective bits.

Flag Name Comment
1 0x00000001 Gossip If creature has more gossip options, add this flag to bring up a menu.
2 0x00000002 Quest Giver Any creature giving or taking quests needs to have this flag.

So if you want a NPC that is a quest giver(2), a vendor(128) and can repair(4096) you just add specific flags together: 2+128+4096=4226                                                                              


Controls how fast the creature can walk. For vehicles: increases fly speed.


Controls how fast the creature can run. For vehicles: increases ground movement speed.


If non-zero, this field defines the size of how the model of the creature appears ingame. If zero, it will use default model size taken from the DBC.


The rank of the creature:

Rank Name Default Respawn Time Creature.spawntimesecs Corpse Decay Time Worldserver.conf (Corpse.Decay) Total Default Respawn spawntimesecs + Corpse.Decay
0 Normal 5 min 60 sec 6 min
1 Elite 5 min 5 min 10 min
2 Rare Elite 5 min 5 min 10 min
3 Boss 5 min 1 hour 1 hour, 5 min
4 Rare 5 min 5 min 10 min

Note 1: An NPC's rank is mostly visual (which also requires your Cache to be cleared to see changes). Changing this value will not change its health, damage, or loot. However, it will change the respawn time of the creature.

Note 2: Respawn times can be modified in two other places: Creature.spawntimesecs (only for that single GUID of the creature) and in the worldserver.conf file under the "Corpse.Decay" settings (for ALL creatures of the same rank). The default `spawntimesecs` for all spawned creatures is 300 seconds (5 minutes). For example, using the ".npc add" command to spawn a "Normal" NPC will give it a default respawn time of 6 minutes (spawntimesecs + Corpse.Decay time). Also, the creature must decay first before it can respawn. For this reason, the Corpse Decay Time of the creature is also it's minimum respawn time, since setting the creature's Creature.spawntimesecs = 0 will remove the Default Respawn Time. In the example above, setting our Normal NPC's spawntimesecs = 0 will mean the creature's respawn time decreases from 6 minutes to 60 seconds.

Note 3: If you want the creature to show a skull or "??" in the portrait (often with Bosses), set the type_flags to 4.

This field was used to determine whether a template has been verified from WDB files.

If value is 0 then it has not been parsed yet.

If value is above 0 then it has been parsed with WDB files from that specific client build.

If value is -1 then it is just a place holder until proper data are found on WDBs.

If value is -Client Build then it was parsed with WDB files from that specific client build and manually edited later for some special necessity.
