Darkshire is a small town within the Kingdom of Stormwind. It is located in eastern Duskwood.


Darkshire was once known as Grand Hamlet, and was destroyed in the First War by the invading orc army, but was later rebuilt following the Second War.

It is believed that the dark times began with the slaughter of many of the town's nobles at a party in Karazhan, which is not far away from Darkshire. Whatever caused the darkness in Karazhan, however, reached out to the southern parts of the Elwynn Forest, corrupting it into what is now known as Duskwood.

The TownEdit

The town has four roads leaving it, each patrolled by the local Night Watch Militia. The northern-most road leaves towards the river, up to the Three Corners Garrison and eventually the town of Lakeshire, deep in the Redridge Mountains. The path to the west leads to the Brightwood Grove, a once sunny glade where Worgen now roam. The eastern road leads to the Deadwind Pass, where Karazhan is located. The southern-most road leads to the crossroads to the Stranglethorn Vale, and to the ghost town of Raven Hill.

Unlike Goldshire, Darkshire doesn't benefit from Stormwind's protection, and instead have created the Night Watch Militia. The town's inhabitants are comprised mostly of farmers and traders, the nearby mine (Now known as Roland's Doom) having been overrun by Worgen of the Nightbane Pack.

Scarlet Raven TavernEdit

Even in these dark times, travelers, adventurers and the local militia make stops at the inn, and Barkeep Hann is well-known for his delicious moonshine! It was once a more cheerful and friendly place, but even in these dark days the inn is hospitable and still renowned, although the atmosphere has grown to be more morose, more silent than before.

Darkshire ArmoryEdit

Owned by the Gnarltree family of blacksmiths, you can find a variety of armor and weapons in stock here, and some of the smiths enjoy teaching the finer aspects of blacksmithing to both old and new.
