Deadman's Crossing is the eastern crossroads leading west to Duskwood, east towards Swamp of Sorrows, and south to Karazhan in Deadwind Pass. It is marked with a hangman's tree still bearing a pair of corpses, as well as a signpost reading 'Turn Back!' and 'Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.'
Despite the forbidding warnings and the high level of monsters in other areas in Deadwind Pass, Deadman's Crossing is perfectly safe for low level adventurers to run through on their way to the Swamp of Sorrows, provided that they don't stray off the road.
- 'Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.' is a famous line from the Inferno by Dante Alighieri, the first part of the Divine Comedy, found inscribed upon the Gate of Hell.
