The Writhing Haunt

The Writhing Haunt after the Cataclysm

The Writhing Haunt is an area located in the central part of the Western Plaguelands, just east of the Ruins of Andorhal. Originally 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.

You can find Mulgris Deepriver, a quest giving NPC, hidden inside a house at the Writhing Haunt.

The Alliance player meets 'Gory' during exploration. After discovering Writhing Haunt, he saw the friendly purple skinned giant farmer walking on the field. He loves to be under the sun, he said.

Also now, there's one Abomination wandering around the area named 'Gory' who surprisingly remains friendly to all. He doesn't seems to get involved to the battle of the contesting Andorhal, instead it looks like he is working as a farmer like any other human farmers in another farms of the Western Plaguelands. According to him, he got his own scythe, he always wanted to be a farmer and help out on this plantation.

However, it is unknown what makes him want to be a farmer and harms anyone who stands near by the area. He said no words about the Scourge.

In Cataclysm

The Haunt now appears empty, devoid of all its former Scourge presence, and largely regrown.[1]
