Grellkin can be found at the abandoned furbolg camps and throughout the forest in Shadowglen on Teldrassil. After being corrupted by  [Fel Moss], the grell and grellkin moved into Shadowglen and infested the area, posing a threat to its residents.[1] They also took a liking to the mushrooms in Shadowglen.[2]

Despite the blessing of Teldrassil by two of the Dragon Aspects shortly before the Cataclysm, the grellkin continued to be tainted by the Fel Moss.[3] It was later discovered that there was one last source of corruption on Teldrassil: the Bough of Corruption.[4] With its destruction, the grellkin may finally have been freed from the moss's influence.
