This is no chibi giggle funtasy quest. You will likely be destroyed within minutes of passing through the Gnar Wall, into Maiestos–the feral frontier–where man is hunted, killed and/or eaten by many creatures lurking along the road. They will be faster and stronger than you, but you will grow in time, if you live long enough to reach there. There is no hand-holding. You will need to brutally fight, bribe and run your way along a dark and dangerous path to complete this fantastic journey and story. They don't call it Carrion Road for nothing. Good luck to you, Warriorlock. You're gonna need it.
There's only one way in, and one way out. Can you survive Carrion Road?
