Darkshire is a once-quaint little woodland village located in Duskwood, but it has fallen on literally dark times. The surrounding forests have been filled with an evil malaise that cloaks the land in constant darkness. The walking dead choke the graveyards, and foul creatures known as worgen have overrun many of the outlying farmsteads. Even worse, Stormwind has all but abandoned the village and the surrounding area, as most of the Stormwind army is currently off fighting on the Horde/Alliance front. This has left the stubborn people of Duskwood little choice but to defend themselves. Besides its town hall, the village also has a blacksmith.

The small town now numbers a scant 3,500 people a great deal of them refugees from Raven Hill. Lord Ello Ebonlocke is the elected mayor of this town.[请求来源] His daughter, Commander Althea Ebonlocke, is the commander of the Night Watch, a local militia that works to keep the roads free and the creeping darkness back for as long as possible. They strike against the undead and worgen that plague the land. The people of Duskwood are a jumpy and suspicious lot, but they are desperate for any aid they can get against the evil that now surrounds their homes.

Darkshire did not always have that name.[1] The town was formerly known as Grand Hamlet,[2] which was destroyed in the First War by invading orcs,[3] but later rebuilt.[1]

It is possible that the dark times began with a slaughter of the Nobles of Darkshire at the party in Medivh's tower Karazhan, not far from Darkshire. Several notable names can be met as enslaved ghosts within the tower, including possible brother or father of current mayor, Ebonlocke, and relatives of all councilmen in current Town Hall.

Whatever the cause of Karazhan's darkening, it corrupted the town of Grand Hamlet and the surrounding area, eventually changing southern Elwynn Forest into Duskwood, and Grand Hamlet into Darkshire.[2]

During the Burning Legion's third invasion, the town was caught in chaos. The ruling Council and the Night Watchers joined the fanatical Veiled Blade cult and had the town under strict eye, even murdering several inhabitants. The situation was discovered by the rogues of the Uncrowned who tried to confront the Commander. While Althea escaped to Stormwind City and was killed there, the councilmen seemingly escaped.[4] If the town was liberated from the hands of the Night Watchers is unclear.

Player versus Player

Due to Darkshire's focal location on the roads of Duskwood, Horde players are forced to travel through and around the town in order to reach the Swamp of Sorrows to the east for their next questing zone after Stranglethorn Vale. On PvP servers, level 18-30 Alliance players questing in the area often avoid running through Duskwood all together by traveling to Sentinel Hill in Westfall and then flying back and forth to Darkshire since it's not only shorter, but because there are also level 35+ Horde players that traffic Duskwood's roads. Questing in Duskwood can be an inconvenience to Alliance players who are constantly under assault by the Horde at the Ravenhill Cemetery; however, Horde must go through Alliance's city, Darkshire, which now spawns level 65 Darkshire Guards, in order to reach their own respective questing zones.

Although Duskwood is classified as Contested Territory, it contains no Horde flight point and only one source of Horde quests, the tower of Beggar's Haunt, northeast of Darkshire along the road to Deadwind Pass.

The Forsaken are gone, they either returned to the Undercity or they where killed by the mad hermit.

Set to the south of 模板:Fu, Grand Hamlet is the hometown of Queen Taria Wrynn and her brother 模板:Fu, a place as quiet and quaint as 模板:Fu.[5] Prior to the arrival of the 模板:Fu, it had a garrison of thirty men, loyal to Stormwind.[5]

After falling mysteriously silent, soldiers in Elwynn Forest spotted Grand Hamlet burning in the distance, heralding the Horde's arrival in Elwynn.[6]
