- The city of Stratholme
The city's main entrance is located in the northwestern quadrant of the Eastern Plaguelands.
- The meeting stone
Just across the bridge from the previous shot, you'll run smack-dab into the meeting stone. You can enter the instance proper by going left or right.
- Instance entrance
This doesn't look ominous at all, does it?
- Oops, we're locked in!
The only way out from here is by hearthing, portaling, dying, or fighting your way through.
- An undead welcoming committee
- This place has seen better days...
- Spectral Citizens wander the streets
They won't attack you -- unless you attack first.
- The city's mailboxes are guarded
- Watch out for traps!
These rats are vicious.
- Living Stratholme
This is the entrance to the Scarlet Crusade's bastion within Stratholme, often referred to as "live" or "living" Stratholme due to the (mostly) lack of undead.
- Having flashbacks to Scarlet Monastary yet?
Yeah, me too.
- Grand Crusader Dathrohan
He's not very friendly.
- Uh oh.
Turns out the Grand Crusader has a secret identity...
- Oops. The undead have gotten in...
After killing Balnazzar, you'll find the corridors overrun with undead.
- Barricaded in the armory
This is what happens when you try to see how many undead you can pull at once.
- The side entrance
If you have the key, this gate will let you in to the undead (as opposed to living) side of Stratholme, giving you a straight path to Baron Rivendare.
- A small chapel near the side-entrance
Aurius will help you fight Baron Rivendare if you complete a quest on the living side of Stratholme for him.
- Magistrate Barthilas
If you've come in from the main gate, you'll find him near the chapel at the side entrance. If you come in through the side entrance, he'll retreat and be waiting near the Slaughter House. Either way, he has the Key to the City for you.
- The Slaughter House
Inside, you'll find Baron Rivendare.
- Baron Rivendare
- Ysida Harmon
Baron Rivendare is holding her prisoner -- if you don't make it to the Slaughter House within 45 minutes of entering the Gauntlet area, he'll kill her.
