Duskwood Rares

Duskwood is even creepier than I remember, especially where the spiders are. I had to go back since there have been a few new rares in the area, although one has been transformed into a rare – Eliza. Boy was that an annoying chain while levelling. The zone has been warped and cursed due to the Scythe of Elune. Alliance aid the Night Watch, who protect the  town of Darkshire.

Badlands Rares

Badlands is the scorched zone, home of the Earthen, Dark Iron Dwarves and Goblins in Fuselight-by-the-Sea; as well as the instance Uldaman.

The area has two notable chains: The Day Deathwing Died, and the sad tale of the dragon Rhea, Don’t...
