|Theater of operations|
The Blackwood tribe is a tribe of furbolgs who dwell in the misty forests in the southern area of Darkshore in Kalimdor. Hailing from a series of villages between the Ruins of Mathystra and Ameth'Aran, the Blackwood tribe has been corrupted by satyr interlopers led by Xabraxxis a few years before the Cataclysm hit Azeroth. However, they have been cured, and serve as a small questing hub to aid Malfurion Stormrage in his quest to save Darkshore.
According to Malfurion, the furbolgs were driven into a frenzy by the ruin wrought by the Horde in Darkshore, and began attacking not only the Horde but also the Alliance. According to Sylvanas Windrunner they were driven into hysteria. The Horde took their home Blackwood Den, but the Alliance later set their leaders Elder Brolg, Elder Brownpaw, and Gren Tornfur free.
By the time of the Battle for Darkshore, most of the tribe at the Blackwood Camp was dead and Gren Tornfur had been corrupted by dark magic. The Blackwood Den had been renamed Kor'gar by the Horde. The furbolgs attempted to retake their home but the Horde fought them off and killed Elders Brolg and Brownpaw.
Adventurers had to slay the satyrs involved and purify the Blackwood tribe with an offering of blessed fruit, nuts, and grains. In Cataclysm, the Furbolg Elder needs help in killing the Fire Elementals that attack his village, and in exchange, he will assist Malfurion in saving Darkshore.
