The Blackwald[62.7, 68.5] is a forest in Gilneas, located south of Greymane City and north of the village of Stormglen. The Blackwald is the home of the Druids of the Scythe, who eventually became the first worgen. Tal'doren is in the forest's center, and is identical to the tree where the original worgen were imprisoned in the Emerald Dream.
- Excludes named areas above; Worgen starting experience only.
"Blackwald" is a combination of the word "black" and the German word "wald", meaning forest - hence, "black forest". Thus, it is likely a reference to the Black Forest (Schwarzwald in German) in southern Germany.
