Xerrath was a world destroyed by the Burning Legion as a show of power during the enslavement of Xoroth.[1]

Mists of Pandaria

Mists of Pandaria This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.

A lost nathrezim codex found in Pandaria contained the instructions for opening a magical gateway to Xerrath. Unfortunately the tome was deemed useless, as the world had already been destroyed and the gateway was too complex for a mortal warlock to open alone.[1]

Trivia

Former systems designer Alexander "Xelnath" Brazie, who spearheaded the green fire quest chain during Mists of Pandaria, revealed that he originally intended for warlock players to open a portal to the ruins of Xerrath, where they would do daily quests with the Council of the Black Harvest to drive away the Legion.[2] An incomplete version of the zone, labeled "WarlockIsland," was datamined during the patch 5.2 PTR. The ruins of Xerrath were depicted as a series of floating, cavernous islands suffused with molten fel energy, causing it to strongly resemble Shadowmoon Valley.[3] This island eventually became Dreadscar Rift in World of Warcraft: Legion.[4]
