Just who and what is the Hand of Vengeance?
The Hand of Vengeance is the group of Forsaken forces that have been sent to Northrend by Sylvanas Windrunner to bring Undercity's vengeance upon the Lich King. Their method is the delivery of the latest strain of their deadly Plague. They have allied with The Taunka and the Warsong Offensive, under the leadership of the Horde Expedition, in order to oppose the Lich King. Due to the events that took place in Northrend, they are under constant watch by the Kor'Kron Legion as you can see during NPC conversations (especially in Undercity).
The HoV guild has branched off from Northrend, and offers their apothecary and guardian services to the Eastern Kingdoms to help against the current war taking place. Though their technology and advances have been put on hold by the Horde, they continue to do their research privately. The guild itself expands from Northrend and Eastern Kingdoms, holding most of the guild only events in the familiar places such as Venomspite and Vengeance Landing.
