Taelan's Tower.

The then-unnamed tower prior to Cataclysm.

Taelan's Tower[54.8, 23] is an Argent Crusade guard tower[1][2] along the road to Hearthglen in the Western Plaguelands.

Before the Cataclysm, this tower was unnamed and, like Hearthglen itself, occupied by the Scarlet Crusade. A Holy Coffer containing the  [Mark of the Lightbringer] was situated at the top of the structure. In the quest N [60G] In Dreams, Taelan Fordring was killed at this location by Grand Inquisitor Isillien, who was in turn killed by Taelan's father, Highlord Tirion Fordring.

After the Cataclysm, the tower was claimed by the Argent Crusade and named "Taelan's Tower" in memory of the late Fordring. The Hearthglen priest Daria L'Rayne is responsible for maintaining it.[3] The tower is currently controlled by Redpine gnolls, who have killed the Hearthglen troops who guarded it.
