However, during the Cataclysm, the area became flooded. The surviving centaur founded a new village, Splithoof Heights, on the cliffs looking over the Shimmering Deep. After the Cataclysm struck, a few goblins did a survey of the area and found some gold-looking ore had emerged from underground.
The crag is now littered with debris and underwater life, along the mountain side, in the center of the village, is a cavern known as Splithoof Hold. This is where the Cloven Hoof, an ancient artifact, was heavily guarded and protected by the Ancient Brazier and its Sacred Flame.
