Usage notes 
- In modern English, wrought is usually not interchangeable with worked, the more common contemporary past and past participle of work.
- Wrought often lends a more archaic flavor. It is rarely used with intransitive senses of work.
- Because the phrase "work havoc" has become uncommon in modern English, its past tense "wrought havoc" is sometimes misinterpreted as being a past tense of "wreak havoc".
