The Tainted Scar after the Cataclysm

The Tainted Scar is the large southwestern expanse of the Blasted Lands that serves as domain to many of the remaining forces of the Burning Legion that remained on Azeroth after the Third War. Another such group of demons remains in the similarly scorched and twisted Darkwhisper Gorge in Winterspring. With their leaders gone and their forces diminished, they had no choice but to stand fast and wait for the Dark Portal to open once again.
