The The Heart of Evil was a battle between the Horde of Draenor and the Alliance Expedition. The Alliance Expedition attacked the very capital of the Shadowmoon Clan in order to obtain the Book of Medivh. During the battle, Teron Gorefiend and a cadre of Death Knights under his command were killed and their unholy altar destroyed.


The towering spires of Shadowmoon reach upwards as obsidian blades to cleave the hostile amber skies above. The corrupt heart of the mighty Shaman's power is within reach. Press your attack and the bane of Ner'zhul and his Order of Death Knights will be wiped from the face of Draenor, forever. By destroying this dark fortress and claiming the Book of Medivh, Khadgar will be able to close the rift and Azeroth will be rid of the Orcish Hordes once and for all!
