The Cape of Stranglethorn is the southern part of Stranglethorn Vale, now split from the Shattering. It traces the escalating conflict between the goblin pirates of Booty Bay and their rivals, the Bloodsail Buccaneers. Booty Bay is a major city run by goblin pirates - many profession trainers are located here, as well as a neutral Auction House, bank, Inn, boat to Ratchet, and unique recipe/item vendors. The weekly Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza event happens every Sunday from 2-4pm. The rest of the zone is dotted with troll ruins and sandy beaches.
