Doctor Theolen Krastinov - Krastinov's Bag of Horrors

Using Krastinov's Bag of Horrors
That's right, The Doctor is in! If there's one thing that I just can't get enough of, it's fun transformation items. My bags are always overflowing with those darn things, but I just can't stop collecting them!

Well for those of you who also have a strange addiction to transformation items - Doctor Theolen Krastinov, a rare spawn in Heroic Scholomance, drops an incredibly fun one called Krastinov's Bag of Horrors.

Doctor Theolen Krastinov <The Butcher>
Doctor Theolen Krastinov has approx. 4k hp and can be found in the room right after Rattlegore. The couple of times that I've fought him he's yelled "Time for a little open-heart surgery!" as our group engaged him in combat. He has no special abilities really worth noting. He could almost be mistaken for a trash mob if you weren't paying attention.

Now unfortunately there is no way that I know of to tell if he is up before Rattlegore has been killed. Silverdragon and NPCScan will only go off practically right before you walk into him, and I'm pretty sure that attempting to target him from the entrance will not work. If you've got your heart set on this item, the best thing to do is queue up for this dungeon specifically - and preferably with friends who don't care if they get the item or not. ;)

Krastinov's Bag of Horros - Resembles the Tier 6 rogue "Slayer's" Armor set
Krastinov's Bag of Horrors is the only item on Doctor Theolen's loot table. I'm pretty sure it's a 100% drop as well. This item is pretty awesome - it transforms you into Doctor Krastinov himself! The buff it puts on you is called Surgical Alterations, and it lasts for 10 minutes. When you first use the item blood will spurt all around and you'll yell "The doctor is in!" in Dr Krastinov's voice (pictured in the very first screenshot).

While performing some quick surgery in your new look you'll still be able to mount. Some classes may notice some other fun tricks as well. ^-^ You'll also occasionally yell out all sorts of bloody things when killing creatures in the Doctor's unique voice such as:

"Always pumping, always pumping!"
"Blood blood blood BLOOD BLOOD!"
"Dripping and pouring and clotting!"
"So warm, so red!"
"Spurts of crimson!"
"The scent of delicious!"
"Yes! More Blood!"

One of the many possible yelled phrases after killing something
When the ten minutes are up you'll make another bloody mess as the effect wears off...

It was a fun 10 minutes...
The only downside to this awesome item is that it's on a 2 hour cooldown. Rabble rabble...


  1. Oh I've been wanting to see this guy in the instance. Congrats on the item.

    1. Thanks Cym. I think I've seen him maybe twice in about ten runs through there.

  2. Grats! Now that is a really fun bag of horrors!
