History[edit | edit source]

400 years ago, precious ores were found in the Stinging Winds and the town of Alcarnus was quickly established as the centre of all mining in the area, with several other smaller settlements springing up in its wake.

Background[edit | edit source]

Alcarnus was part of the BlizzCon 2009/GamesCom 2009 demo, in which the player was sent on a quest by Asheara to find out about the troubles of the city. On the way, there was also a bounty to be had from Husam.
