Afraid of the Dark

Like Webster, I’m rather obsessed with death. I love the dark and all that crawls in it, am drawn to Halloween and overly fond of skeletons. Thus is probably comes as no surprise that all my Alliance characters level through Duskwood, the closest the Alliance comes to a properly creepy zone.

Not only does Duskwood have some of the best rare spawns, it also has some of the most engaging and interesting quest chains.

Whenever I’m passing through, I pop up to Beggar’s Haunt to see if the Unknown Soldier is meditating on his own tomb. Despite the eyes gleaming from the undergrowth, I can find peace in amongst the trees and shadowy nooks.

Over all though, it’s the flow of the quests and the little details which draw me back time and time again. From everyone’s favourite sneaky Undead pausing by his own tombstone to the way in which the quest chains play out, Duskwood has it all. Sadness, spookiness, Worgen quest givers in a setting which makes sense, revenge and murder… who could ask for more.

If I had to live anywhere in WoW, taking rooms at the Scarlet Raven would be a distinct possibility. After all, I doubt it would ever be boring.

  1. My first few characters found that place so scary that they abandoned the Eastern Kingdoms for Kalimdor to level, although now it has grown on me, lol.

    • My first trip to Duskwood involved crossing that little bridge from Westfall and coming from that bright, vibrant zone into the dark and dismal Duskwood had a massive impact. Then of course running into Stitches and dying… :p

  2. I love Duskwood. I always level there too.

    • Definitely one of the better Alliance zones I think, Although I did prefer it pre Cataclysm to post (mostly because of the whole Stitches rampage).
