This, like everything related to old gods, is likely Lovecraft related. Insanity was a central theme to his stories. BobNamataki (talk) 00:47, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Saronite#The side effects of Saronite mining
Often, mortals who mine Saronite for prolonged periods of time appear to be driven insane. Indeed, many of the people who have been rescued from the Saronite Mines tell of hearing strange whispers of unknown origins, attempting to shape their perceptions of those around them. Others became enraged and simply attacked their would-be rescuers at the very suggestion of being taken away from the "Master", while still others yell madly about their mysterious "Master", and attempt to offer their lives to it by hurling themselves down into the deep recesses of the mines. If a living mortal wears Saronite, the process of insanity would be considerably increased, driving the wearer insane within minutes.

The quest N [76] Pure Evil shows how strong and resistant the evil metal is. The Saronite ore collected was completely unscratched by the attacks from Crusade Commander Korfax's [Arcanite Reaper]. The ore was also completely resistant to the nature magic used against it by Rayne and Rimblat Earthshatter. Finally the ore was struck by the powers of the Holy Light by Avenger Metz, and the ore reacted but seemed to reflect the spell back at everyone in the area. The metal itself is very strong, while being 1/4 the weight of steel.

The bolded sections. Now the first one doesn't make any sense (it is contradictory to the lower Uses section and saronite was used to make most of the plate/mail armor in use in WotLK, not to mention rings, guns, etc). The second I'm not so sure on, both by the same user, two separate (consecutive) edits in November 2011.

I'm going to go ahead and remove the first one, if no one can find a source for the second one it should probably be removed as well.

Saronite or saronite?--Adûnâi (talk) 15:55, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Good question. Gotta take a look at all quests mentioning it... Xporc (talk) 16:19, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Pretty sure it's lower-case. -- DarkTZeratul (talk) 16:41, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

It's lower case in B [80 Daily] Slaves to Saronite, N [87] Profit Mastery, and Chronicle V1. --Aquamonkeyeg (talk) 16:56, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
