Classic WoW Wiki

The Eastern Plaguelands were once a series of farmlands, and villages on the road to the bustling city of Stratholme. During the Third War however, the region suffered catastrophic blows, first with Arthas' slaughter of the citizens of Stratholme, and then with the arrival of the Scourge. The Scourge killed nearly all the inhabitants who had not already fled, culminating at the terrible Battle of Darrowshire. Now the region is roamed only by mutant creatures, the soldiers of the Scourge, and members of the Scarlet Crusade. Only a small camp maintained by the Argent Dawn remains.
