Battle of Pesh

Located in the Barrens, Pesh was the site of an epic battle which took place during the War of Wrath.

During the battle, the Elder-Elves allied themselves with a powerful race of elemental beings called the Vaati, led by Prince Icosiol. The Dark-Elves were aided by a horde of undead, led by a mysterious figure named Kyuss.

The Elves and their Vaati were victorious, but the victory was bittersweet—Icosiol and thousands of his warriors were slain. After the battle, the fallen Vaati were buried in a series of tombs in the region known today as the Cairn Hills.

One of these tombs held a fallen Vaati champion named Zosiel and is known today as the "Whispering Cairn."
