Entrance to Frostwall Mines

Frostwall Mines is available to Horde players upon upgrading the garrison to level 2. After completing H [15-40] Things Are Not Goren Our Way, Frostwall Mines will unlock and be given to the player for free. It allows you to gather Draenor Ores and  [Draenic Stone] once a day, which are used for work orders to gain more Draenor ores.

A level 1 mine grants 8 deposits, level 2 grants ~13 deposits, level 3 grants ~18 deposits.

The Alliance equivalent is the Lunarfall Excavation.


The mine was once abandoned, but there are still underground riches ready to be discovered.
