Crystal Lake is a lake located directly east of Goldshire in Elwynn Forest. It is crawling with murlocs and may be quite dangerous for the inexperienced adventurer. William Pestle sends adventurers here to gather kelp from the murlocs in order to make an invisibility potion. A human homestead is located on the southern shore.
- The homestead was added to the lake in patch 9.0.5. On the PTR, the building was a separate subzone named Volo's Homestead, but in the live game it is unnamed and simply considered part of the Crystal Lake subzone. It's not known who "Volo" is or what the building's intended purpose is or was.
- It may be named after the infamous Crystal Lake from the Friday the 13th movies. An NPC named Jason Mathers resides nearby. There are many references to the Friday the 13th movies around the lake, including the guards of Stormwind mentioning a strange mask being fished up in the lake.
- Patch 9.0.5 (2021-03-09): Unnamed homestead added.
