After arriving at Stranglethorn Vale, the expedition established Kurzen's Compound as their new base of operations. Not long after that, an ogre mage named Mai'Zoth possessed the mind of Kurzen to control his men for his own purposes. When the humans noticed Kurzen's sudden change, a small group rebelled and left to the west where they formed the Rebel Camp while the rest remained loyal to Kurzen.

Mai'Zoth corrupted Kurzen through an artifact known as the  [Mind's Eye],[2] and his medicine men distributed an elixir made of basilisk blood and  [Whispering Blue Stone] as medicine to prevent insubordination.[3][4]
