Splintergraft is a haunted treant featured in the The Witchwood expansion for Hearthstone. No new wood is being cut near Gilneas City, and with Darius Crowley's engineering projects demanding resources, supplies of lumber in the city are dwindling rapidly. Most who venture beyond the gates with axe in hand do not return, and those few brave souls who have tell of roots rippling out of the ground like hungry serpents, and splintered stumps assembling themselves into a jagged, towering monstrosity wielding a woodsman's axe. These reports are doubtlessly referring to Splintergraft, the closest thing to an undead treant that has been encountered. Her rage-fueled strength is immense, but more than her brute strength, her most frightening aspect is her ability to infect other creatures and turn their flesh and blood to wood and sap. The transformation wildly increases the victims' strength but renders them powerless to resist the Witchwood's commands. Yearning for vengeance against those who split her trunks in life, Splintergraft is impatient for the day that the roots of the Witchwood make a tomb for Gilneas.
