It's possible you might find some blight there. Just a guess.
The Blighted Isle. The name reeks of desolation, of ruin, of a land defiled. It would be accurate as this was where the devastating civil war remembered as "The Sundering" took place in the story of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. This is where the Dark Elves have landed and are starting their conquest of Ulthuan from. Read about the starting zone for the Dark Elves and find out what you might have stepped into when you took up the cause of Malekith the Witch King. One thing is for certain. Elven blood will be spilled on the homeland in the name of Khaine.
Under cover of darkness, House Uthorin's mighty Black Ark, Nemesis, approaches the northern coast of Ulthuan. A towering fortress of obsidian atop an island of rock, the Ark is laden with soldiers, beasts and war machines of the powerful noble house. From the depths of the Ark, legions of Dark Elf warriors charge forth onto the high bluffs, eager to spill the blood of their mortal enemies.
