In the RPG[]

Icon-RPG This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

This ghost town once took pride in its honor for the dead. It held a mortuary school that graduated the finest embalmers in Azeroth. Then the undead rose up and murdered most of the inhabitants. After struggling to combat what had once been their loved ones, most townspeople gave up and fled east to Darkshire. The Defias Brotherhood tried to set up camp in the town in the aftermath of the exodus, but even they could not take the constant attacks by the undead. Some citizens remained, including a master embalmer known as Abercrombie, who lived near Raven Hill cemetery until recently. A serious man, he worked both to stay alive and to stop the undead - or so he claimed. Raven Hill is possibly the origin of the massive Black Riders, huge beings that suddenly appear with hellhounds at their feet to run down frantic travelers. Some nights they skirt the perimeter of Darkshire, howling loudly.[3]


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

In Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, there was a town named Sunnyglade which was situated where Raven Hill is located in World of Warcraft. They might be one and the same, as is the case with Darkshire having once been Grand Hamlet.[4]
