The Overgrowth is a lush jungle located southeast of Hunter's Hill in the Southern Barrens and is home to several creatures, including plant life, that have been changed or mutated by the Emerald Nightmare.
The Overgrowth was regrown thanks to the efforts of the night elven druid Naralex. However it was invaded by the Emerald Nightmare through the Nightmare Scar at the center of the forest. Naralex and his tauren disciple Muyoh, found in the Overgrown Camp, asked Adventurers to help them seal off the Nightmare corruption.
Once the rift into the Nightmare was sealed, Naralex believed the balance of nature would take hold here once again.
