Dun Baldar (or Dun'Baldar) is the stronghold of Alliance General Vanndar Stormpike, located in the northern part of Alterac Valley. Vanndar himself is in the keep on which the stronghold is built around.
Dun Baldar is the primary staging ground for the Stormpike clan of dwarves, arriving in Alterac Valley in search of archaeological artifacts and resources. Encountering heavy resistance from the Frostwolf Clan, the Stormpike have received military aid from all members of the Alliance, seeking to drive out the Frostwolf and make the valley their own.
Dun Baldar is close to the Alliance battleground entrance, allowing it to receive easy reinforcements from Alliance soldiers entering the battlefield. Dun Baldar is the nexus of most Alliance quests, and also the location for all quest turn-ins. It is in Dun Baldar that all vendors for the alliance are located, and sell all manner of food, drinks, reagents, and offer equipment repairs.
The primary entrance into Dun Baldar is via a bridge connecting Stormpike Graveyard to the main Dun Baldar base. This bridge is guarded by both Dun Baldar North and South bunkers.
