Warcraft History: Lorekeeper Polkelt!

Zombie_ChowLorekeeper Polkelt was a level 60 elite zombie mini-boss found in the Scholomance and was added to the game June 28, 2006.

Scholomance, former House of Barov, on a rise overlooking the abandoned city of Caer Darrow, it fell into ruin following the Second War.

Originally, Polkelt was one of the six mini-bosses (17 total boss’s total with in the instance) that are required to call forth Darkmaster Gandling. As the wizard Kel’thuzad enlisted followers for his Cult of the Damned, he would often promise immortality in exchange for serving the Lich King. The Barov family fell to Kel’thuzad’s influence and donated the keep and its crypts to the Scourge. The cultists then killed the Barovs and turned the ancient crypts into a school for necromancy.

During Cataclysm, Patch 4.0.1 specifically his level was reduced from 60 to 43. In the early patch’s of Pandaria, 5.0.4 he was removed from the game entirely due to the major Scholomance revamp. The most notable fact about Polkelt was he did not drop a Corruptor’s Scourgestone, a well sought after shirt.

He and a few other boss’s were other removed or changed and honestly, It was so long ago that I do not remember the previous version entirely; however, I find it interesting that he does not have some sort of reference somewhere else. I do have fond memory’s of leveling and running instances.

I at this point am interested in running Scholomance for giggles on a toon or two to see if I can revive old memories of how the instance was in comparison to how it is now.
