Lord Baurles K. Wishock is a minor functionary in the royal court of Stormwind. He is a frequent patron of the Slaughtered Lamb tavern in the Mage Quarter of Stormwind City — and it is alleged that he does not keep his tab current.
Lord Baurles has discovered that warlock trainers and others have set up shop in the basement below the Slaughtered Lamb, and intends to petition the king to shut down the establishment — something Zardeth of the Black Claw would prefer he didn't. A quest line given by Zardeth requires that the player outright murders Lord Baurles with a deadly poison administered to a drink.
Baurles K. Wishock is also an anagram of Charles Bukowski.
