Scarlet Raven Tavern

Scarlet Raven Tavern.

Scarlet Raven Tavern (or the Scarlet Raven) is located in the town of Darkshire in Duskwood. Although the hearth has been kept warm, it now holds a more morose crowd while the darkness presses in on the tavern outside, which is downright bad for business.[1] The inn features several quest givers, as well as a few vendors, and a Hero's Call Board at the entrance.


Before he retired from active duty, Marshal Haggard and the Stormwind Guard used to get drinks at the Scarlet Raven Tavern in Darkshire.[2]

While the tavern no longer saw the business it used to do because of the corruption of Duskwood, they still do get travelers passing through. At some point, Jitters rented a room here for a few days, and spent his nights at the bar, writing, until he left the town in a hurry as he was hunted by the Dark Riders.[3] After beings stuck hiding at Raven Hill for weeks, Jitters sent the adventurer at the tavern to bring him Dusky Crab Cakes in exchange for information.[4][5]

Following the Cataclysm, Abercrombie sent the adventurer to the tavern to bring him a bottle of Zombie Juice prepared by Tavernkeep Smitts,[6] a liquor that is strong enough to raise the dead.[7]

During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, all the occupants of the tavern were murdered by the fanatical members of the Night Watch, with the exception of Chef Grual who joined the ranks of the Veiled Hand after he became obsessed with the Burning Legion. The Shadow of the Uncrowned later infiltrated the inn and managed to stole the Skull of the Innocent, which was to be used for a demonic invasion in Stormwind City, in order to slow down the cult's plans and gain more time.[8]
