Frostfire Ridge storyline
The Frostfire Ridge storyline is the Horde starting experience in Frostfire Ridge after getting through Warlords of Draenor intro experience. Here, players quickly set up their Garrison at Frostwall in the south-center portion of the zone, then work to help shore up the Frostwolf clan's defenses.
In addition to the overarching zone storyline, a huge number of vignettes can also be found all over Frostfire Ridge. These vignettes are one-time events: killing rare or rare-elite mobs, finding out-of-the-way treasure chests, or small events like fending off waves of attackers.
