HistoryEditOriginally the area was a life-sustaining farm, but it has since been overrun by the vile Scourge. In their quest to destroy the living, they have placed a large cauldron in the middle of the field which constantly spews disease-filled vapors into the air. The cauldron itself is protected by Cauldron Lord Razarch, Rotting Ghouls, Freezing Ghouls, and Fetid Zombies.
CataclysmEditThis section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.
The Haunt now appears empty, devoid of all its former Scourge presence, and largely regrown. During the Alliance quest-line, Alliance farmers ventured here to farm for food, only to be attacked by Forsaken attackers and raised as undead. Those that survived joined the Alliance to fight the Forsaken for Andorhal. Thus, abomination Gory is the last remaining one on the farm.
After the battle, the remaining renegade troops were forced to retreat and travel to the Writhing Haunt. Lieutenant Myner led a group of soldiers from the Argent Crusade to fight against the remaining attackers. With the help of an adventurer, they were able to kill every last one and burn their corpses to the ground.
