Old Stratholme (Stratholme City in the map) is the setting of the Culling of Stratholme instance, alongside the Road to Stratholme. It is also one of the areas visited in The Deaths of Chromie.
The instance is set four years before the beginning of World of Warcraft around the time of the Warcraft III campaign mission The Culling, during in which Prince Arthas leads the purge of Stratholme.
The forested region outside Stratholme, and some of the city areas like King's Square or the Festival Lane are fully explorable, provided that you have not spoken to Arthas after using the [Arcane Disruptor] to locate the plagued grain.
- For the history of the city, see the History section on Stratholme.
