The Alghoul is an enemy in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
It is larger than a Ghoul
Alghouls are not found in the prologue but rather you encounter them slightly later when you reach Velen.
Alghouls are more aggressive and stronger versions of Ghouls
- In the Contract: Woodland Beast Alghouls can be found near the site where a transport was attacked.
- Alghouls are slightly more powerful than Ghouls.
- According to the book "Alghouls and Alghouls" written by John of Brugge, you can tell the difference between the two by markings, like unto the panthera tigris that in Zerrikania dwells, and by the sickly paleness of its visage.
