    What unspeakable horror did the Bael Modan excavators find?

    Turn away, <class>.
    Before the cataclysm hit, we found something.
    We dug something up that should've stayed buried.
    Pray to whatever you believe in that the landslide was enough to keep it down...
    This is the dialogue that is offered to the player when you speak to Bael'dun Excavator near the collapsed cavern in the excavation site. Speculation is that it is referring to an Old God... As you have been able to since Vanilla, and still are able to find, blood shards - which are supposedly solidified blood of an Old God, equivalent to Yogg Saron's Saronite.

    What do you think it refers to? Is there credence in the Old God speculation, or is it something else?

    They Found More References to Lord of the Rings.

    Ehr, this was a long time ago, but when I redid the loremaster after cataclysm launch for the zone achievements I'm pretty sure I did a quest there where I had to kill some dwarf or trogg or smth who went absolutely bonkers because he found a certain crystal?

    Ah, I remember. There was a pre-Cata quest where you had to get the Tear of the Moons for a Dwarf... Apparently it made the curse of the flesh qualities worse. Definitely related to an Old God.

    Dwarfs, digging too far.

    They obviously found a Balrog.

    +1 because the title from my thread during cata beta became the title of this subsection on wowpedia.

    My guess:
    Some Troll god since Bael Modan shows some Troll Pillars / Snake Statues.
    Something got revived by Agamaggan's blood, since this cavern seems to directly lead below Razorfen Kraul.

    Things to speculate:
    You could mine Blood shards from mineral veins, rumored to be blood of Agamaggan, but could be something different as well.
    The temple where Loken overpowered Thorim had Thorns all over the place, Freya's temple had thorns as well, maybe thorns are some kind Old God sign as well.
