This relatively backwater area was once overrun by spiders, buzzards and the occasional stray orc. Most folks passed through on the way to Stonewatch Keep. It has since been taken over by Blackrock clan of orcs who have a very large worg kennel here. Overseen by Homurk and Murdunk, this is where the captured human Messner was held.
At the conclusion of the Redridge Mountains storyline the area is cleared of all enemy NPCs.
- Alliance rogues were once required to visit the mill to get their thieving certificate, and there were footlockers around the area to practice lockpicking on. Patch 4.0.1 changed lockpicking to no longer require practice to raise the skill, and the chests for lockpicking were removed.
