Coldridge Valley is located in the southwestern corner of Dun Morogh, and is linked to the greater area by Coldridge Pass to the northeast. It is the starting area for dwarven players. The road through the pass leads through a tunnel which is infested with trogg raiders. It continues east and then north through Kharanos, and further winds up the mountains terminating into the dwarven capital of Ironforge.

Coldridge Valley contains three small camps where dwarves and gnomes receive missions to defend the region from the encroaching troggs, trolls, and wildlife. Other tasks such as collecting gear parts to delivering hot stew are found here as well. When the young recruits are deemed ready to move on, they are sent out through the pass.

In Cataclysm, the Gnomeregan Exiles gnomes were given their own unique starting area at the Train Depot in Gnomeregan.
