Seriously, apart from Karazhan what is there in this zone? Nada.

And don't even think of the time before burning crusade..

I just kind of love the architecture and creepiness of this place. I don't mind the questlessness.

Best part about this place? It's easy to get the 'Explore Deadwind Pass' achievement. :D

Deadwind Pass is another region of the continent of Azeroth dominated by evil magic. It sits in the very middle of Azeroth and connects Duskwood and the Swamp of Sorrows. The Ivory Spire of Karazhan, the seat of Medivh once upon a time, still stands here. It leaks corrupting magic, destroying the region’s flora. A foul wind constantly blows across the decimated canyon, giving it the name Deadwind. Although Deadwind does have a handful of inhabitants, few run across them.

The fates of many people in Azeroth and the surrounding continents were forged here. Medivh made his home here and planned the Dark Portal's creation and opening. His evil is felt in this region more strongly than anywhere else, the land corrupted with the foul taint of his magic. Currently, the pass has little significance. People move through quickly, wishing to avoid ogres, undead and demons. It is rumored that the attacking monsters do not kill those they capture, but take them back to the tower.

The tower's builders have been lost to time, but surely they were great and terrible people to have built such a foreboding and yet magnificent structure. Medivh was sought out and killed during the First War, and the tower has since been apparently abandoned, though unknown dangers yet lurk within.

It is unclear who murdered all the villagers in the southern part of the chasm. It may have been Medivh, or some force he summoned. Another theory states that it was the Black Riders, who have a hunger for death and seek to obtain the dangerous Scythe of Elune for their own purposes.

Probably the creepiest zone in the game and yet Blizz did almost nothing with it.
