Probably 6 months to a year go, I was doing Warsong Gulch as happily as can be (WSG is my favorite battleground, after all), when I saw a dwarf player on the battleground standing completely still. I decided to move toward him to see if he was running from anything. As soon as I took a few steps, I realized he was inside of a stump.
Confused, I looked at my map and realized that there were no players there–this was something built into the battleground. I asked about it on Twitter, but no one had definitive answer. I ended up forgetting about it sometime later.
Fool Me Twice
Then, this afternoon, I’m rolling my level 11 baby shaman through Warsong, and I’m headed down the field when I see a dwarf again and, having forgotten my previous experience, I once again assumed it was a player. I moused over him to see his health, and realized there was no mouseover–what?
When I took a step forward and saw the stump again, I realized what I was seeing, and this time I took a picture:

Then, I took a few steps closer and took another screenshot of the stump:
Who are you, mysterious dwarf? Why are you here, standing motionless in the middle of Warsong Gulch? Why are you hidden by a stump?
I want to know your story!
Update: Apparently this is like seeing Bigfoot for me.
In a later WSG, we were killing Horde at their GY (sorry, guys! sort of. >.>) when I turned around and caught this glimpse of the Mysterious Dwarf’s back!
