Purgation Isle is an island south of the shores of Hillsbrad Foothills, in a shape of a towering spiral. It contains a cemetery and a ruined scout tower. It was also a renowned place to farm money, before patch 2.0, due to the fact that the mobs may drop up to 30 silver each.

The island has a mysterious, unknown history. It is haunted by ghosts of renegade paladins, monks, mages, and priests that for some reason are condemned and cannot find peace in death. It seems that Kormok is the cause of the isles ghosts as it is said that he delighted in summoning forth the souls of the banished dead. Before patch 1.10, the mobs on the Isle were only level 20-30. After that, the mobs were replaced with 57+ elites, and became part of the Tier 0.5 armor quest.
Since the Cataclysm, the ghosts of the Isle appear to have disappeared and the land has been claimed by members of the Stormpike clan working together with the Bloodfang pack. It should be noted that, though the mobs are Alliance-friendly, no quests or resources exist here for that faction.
During the quests and , the island is attacked by Kingslayer Orkus and a Horde adventurer on the frost wyrm Kasha, here to steal Alliance battle plans from Ivar Bloodfang, Balinda Stonehearth and Vanndar Stormpike present to discuss strategies to re-taking Hillsbrad from the Horde. They managed to steal the plans but at the cost of the life of Kingslayer Orkus, fatally injured during the battle.
