Darkshore has undergone a lot of changes since I first levelled in the zone with my NE priest. Since the Shattering, the area has been invaded by trolls, Twilight Cultist infiltrations in the south, and the destruction of Auberdine. I’m told that Alliance players can help rescue and comfort dying NPCs, aid the refugees of Auberdine, and assist Malfurion Stormrage in driving back the threat of the cultists.
One of the most interesting things I found when revisiting the area was the huge whirlpool in the centre of Darkshore. I found it on the way to buy Withers off Apothecary Furrows who’s located in a cave southeast of the Darkshore Alliance quest-hub Lor’Danel.
