Prior to the Cataclysm and the Invasion of Gilneas, Light's Dawn Cathedral was the site of a last stand by uncorrupted Gilneans, led by Lord Darius Crowley, against a horde of feral worgen, as part of a diversion set up by King Genn Greymane to allow Gilnean citizens to evacuate safely to Duskhaven. The Gilnean defenders (which include the player character) are overwhelmed, and eventually become worgen themselves.
During the Forsaken occupation of Gilneas, the Cathedral Quarter is held by the 7th Legion. Master Sergeant Pietro Zaren, commander of the Legion's forces in the Ruins of Gilneas, stands at the doorway of the cathedral.
- This area was planned to be available in the original concept for the Battle for Gilneas, taking place in Gilneas City itself.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Added.
