The entrance of the valley.

The Valley of Spirits is a long narrow valley that leads from the Valley of Strength to the Talon Gate in Orgrimmar. It is the long-standing seat of the Darkspear trolls.[1]

The valley contained troll and orc buildings. It also served as a gathering place for representatives of the Ahn'Qiraj war effort.

Many parts of this valley sunk due to the Cataclysm and caused the large pool of water at the southern end to flow into the rest of the valley flooding a majority of it. The two huts in that pool were destroyed and the area was given to the goblins of the Bilgewater Cartel, which called the Goblin Slums until the Orgrimmar Embassy replaced it.

Most of the orcish buildings survived here and continue to be used by their previous residents. The Darkspear trolls have since been allowed to use this valley to build and expand upon. A tunnel to bypass the Goblin Slums was also dug through the mountain to the Valley of Wisdom.

During the events of Battlefield: Barrens, the district was put under martial law by the Kor'kron under orders from Garrosh himself due to the heavy troll population. This was due to the rebellion against Garrosh's rule. Curfews are put in order, and Kor'kron guards actively patrol the district and arrest all suspicious individuals.

Once Garrosh was dethroned, the trolls returned to their daily routines.

Following the end of the Argus Campaign, the Orgrimmar parade led by Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner passed through here.[2]

After the Fourth War when the Horde Council was established, Thrall chose the valley as his home, living in a small residence.[3]
