The Undead Caravan was a small Scourge force tasked with infecting the villages near Hearthglen and sending the newly raised undead from each village to strike at the town. The caravan's ultimate goal was to infect the largest village and construct a new undead stronghold to the north of Hearthglen. The plagued grain was distribued on meat wagons which were accompanied by ghouls, necromancers, and abominations, as well as the newly turned zombies.[1]


  • While destroying the caravan is a side quest, it is recommended for players to do so unless they wish to defend Hearthglen from three undead strongholds.
