Tainted Cores drop from Tainted Elementals in Serpentshrine Cavern during the Lady Vashj encounter. They are used to remove the shield granting Lady Vashj invulnerability. Originally, they rooted you in place when you held one, forcing you to pass them from player to player to reach the shield generators.
