Three Corners is a crossroads just inside Redridge Mountains. The crossroads splits three ways and leads to the "Three Shires": Goldshire in Elwynn Forest to the west, Lakeshire in Redridge to the east, and Darkshire in Duskwood. In its middle stands Tower Watch, a scout tower that by the time of the Fourth War has the reputation of being one of the Alliance's more well-defended towers.
Though once a relatively quiet spot patrolled by a lone Stormwind guard, Guard Parker, Three Corners has been built up significantly since the Cataclysm. In addition to the watchtower where the newly promoted Watch Captain Parker studies the encroaching gnolls, barricades with Redridge Garrison Watchmen attempt to keep the riffraff out. In case there was any doubt as to the purpose of the barricades, the accompanying signs, like those of Westfall, read "ABSOLUTELY NO TRANSIENTS! NO EXCEPTIONS!"
During the Fourth War, Mathias Shaw of the SI:7 arrived here and gave the guards a night off, apparently to allow Varok Saurfang to easily pass through the area. Dark Ranger Lyana and the Horde champion disguised themselves as humans and questioned its guards and Darcy Parker for anything suspicious that could help them locate Varok.
During Death Rising, troops of the Argent Crusade were mobilized under the orders of Guard Captain Josephine, in order to protect the area attacked by the Scourge. The situation was quite chaotic with Bloodthirsty Ghouls who come from and were attacking the defenses of Guard Captain Fairbanks, while a Frostwyrm who occasionally strafed the area.
Guard Captain Josephine announced to the adventurers who came to help them that the Scourge's presence continued to grow, and that without proper reinforcements, Stormwind may soon be under siege. She also transmitted a report to Commander Gregor in Stormwind City to brief them on the situation that is more dire than they anticipated.
