Making the World of Warcraft more trivial, one post at a time…


Last night, while levelling Ularia from Team Leafy, I came across a chunk of WoW Lore made scenery, by running across Grom Hellscream‘s monument while hunting demons in Demon’s Fall Canyon.

Years ago I levelled Leafy through Ashenvale (I remember spending what seemed like months there), and never saw this once. Now that Forest Song is a genuine quest hub, rather than an annoyingly long run for a single quest hand-in, I’m discovering parts of Ashenvale I never really encountered as Leaf. Nice to know that there are still surprises in parts of Azeroth I thought I’d "done".

What else is there for me to find?

  • Issakhar

    I still remember when I was questing with my brother there a year ago, after a few minutes in that zone we logged off and installed Warcraft 3 again.
    A little bit north from there, taking the road out you can find the blades (arms) of Mannoroth, the pit lord that killed Gromm and died at the hands of Thrall.

    Hmm, let’s see.

    Do you know about the two night elves in Feralas, just west of the Grimtotem village? They give you a short quest chain involving the sprite darters there, which apparently ends up in Darnassus. If you return to them after speaking with Tyrande, there’s a goodie in it for you.

  • The only reason I found that monument was when I was leveling my herbalism and was searching that area for gromsblood. It was good as at the time I had Gorehowl as my weapon (thats Grom’s axe!)

  • I love the new quest zone at Forest Song. The other place I’ve discovered is Dustwallow Marsh – they finally finished out the Shady Rest Inn questline, and added in a bunch of other cool quests there.

    Yeah, Dustwallow is great. Lots of new things to do around Theramore, for Alliance, too.

  • There’s a fairly cool monument on top of the hill to the west of the Crossroads. Not so much lore as a mark of remembrance for someone who had a hand in developing the game.

  • That area is a good place for Herbalists to pick Gromsblood, which coincidentally is named after Grom Hellscream. 🙂
