Entrance to Timbermaw Hold as it's seen from Moonglade.

Timbermaw Hold is the capital of the Timbermaw tribe of furbolgs. It is located in north east Felwood and includes the tunnel that connects Felwood with Moonglade and Winterspring.


When the corruption of the Burning Legion crept into the sacred forests of Kalimdor, the furbolgs fell under the corruptive influence of the Burning Legion. However, amidst the chaos and the madness, the Timbermaw tribe escaped the darkness that had fallen on Kalimdor. In the safety of Timbermaw Hold, the furbolgs of the Timbermaw tribe weathered the storm, yet they were forced to watch helplessly as the forest they had loved so much was slowly turned into a twisted, festering perversion of its former self. The corruption had sunk in deep, so that even long after Illidan had consumed the source of the corruption, a powerful warlock artifact called the Skull of Gul'dan, and vanquished the demons' leader Tichondrius, the taint on the woods still remained.

The furbolgs wary of all strangers, fearing that they may mistake them for their corrupted brethren and attack. However, the Timbermaw tribe are painfully aware that they will not last on their own; adventurers who seek out Timbermaw Hold in northern Felwood and prove themselves as friends of the Timbermaw tribe will learn that the furbolgs value their friends above all else. Though they possess no fine jewels or any worldly riches, the Timbermaw's shamanistic tradition is still strong. They know much about the art of crafting armors from animal hides, and they are more than happy to share their healing/resurrection knowledge with friends of their tribe. The Timbermaw's main concerns are putting an end to their corrupted brethren's suffering and finding a cure to heal the wounds the corruption of Felwood has inflicted upon the land, so that one day, the ancient forests will once again resound with the peaceful chants and the soft laughter of the children of the forest.[1]

Since the Cataclysm, the Azshara entrance to the Hold has been replaced with the Blackmaw Hold area, with the Blackmaw tribe having a schism with the Timbermaws.[2]

In the RPG[]

Icon-RPG This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

This ancient furbolg fortress is located near Felwood's eastern border. It is a vast and rambling place, rumored to run deep into the slopes of Mount Hyjal. No one knows for sure how big it is, since the furbolgs abandoned it in ages past. Undead and satyrs may now wander the shadowed corridors... along with whatever cursed furbolgs still roam the depths. Wise travelers would bypass the site entirely if it were not the only passage through to Winterspring and Hyjal Summit.[3]

Timbermaw Hold is impressive, almost exclusively underground in a system of tunnels, it also contains simple wooden homes inside. Well-sculpted paths lead from Felwood to Moonglade and Winterspring; it contains tunnels to Azshara and Mount Hyjal as well, but those aren't available to everyone. The furbolgs here work with the druids of Moonglade frequently, and are some of the staunchest allies of the night elves and the Alliance. If the Scourge ever reappears here, the furbolgs will be some of the most valuable additions against them.[4]



This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Before the Cataclysm, the entrance to Timbermaw Hold in the northern mountain range of Azshara, now redesigned as Blackmaw Hold, was merely filled in with dirt and guarded by Gatekeeper Rageroar, a Timbermaw Shaman furbolg, and two Timbermaw Den Watchers. However, the gate is extremely unlike any other furbolg construction. The gate's history is unknown.

There is a side tunnel in the Timbermaw Hold, currently blocked by a door headed south, that may connect it with another area. This round, wooden door is a separate object from the cave walls, but has no functionality.

There is also the possibility that the Timbermaw Hold may be connected with the Hyjal Barrow Deeps since they are known to host at least one uncorrupted furbolg clan, and these connecting tunnels could also be the route used by Tyrande and Malfurion to reach the summit of Mount Hyjal before the Legion after freeing Illidan during the Third War.
