Gahrron's Withering is an abandoned farmstead located at the eastern end of the Western Plaguelands.
Formerly known as Gahrron's Quickening, the farm has been taken over by the Scourge. They have placed a large cauldron in the middle of the field which constantly spews disease-filled vapors into the air. The cauldron is guarded by Cauldron Lord Soulwrath and other Scourge officers. Haunting Visions and many Wailing Deaths and Hungering Wraiths. Gahrron's Withering is a popular place for grinding Argent Dawn reputation, as the quest involving the Plague Cauldron located here provides the best reputation of the four Cauldron Quests.
Gahrron's Withering is the only farm of the four Target: Plague Cauldron quests given by High Priestess MacDonnell at Chillwind Camp that does not have additional quest givers in the area. It is presumed to have been owned by Del Gahrron at some point.

Unlike the other three farmsteads, Gahrron's Withering is still very much in Scourge control with Cauldron Lord Soulwrath still being located here.
After the Scourge was swept away, farmers from the Argent Crusade reclaimed the withering and planned to have the place rebuilt. This was when a group of Gnolls invaded the area and several farmers were killed during the skirmish. Nathaniel Dumah sent adventurers to deal with the threat.
