Dreadscar Rift is a former Burning Legion portal world which served as the pitlord Jagganoth's Lair, until the warlocks of the Black Harvest conquered it. Not much is known about this realm, except that Jagganoth, lieutenant of the dreadlord Mephistroth, had been its Overlord. The Dreadscar armies were bound to the new Overlord, the First of the Black Harvest.
