A few months ago I was flying through Mulgore and found this little spot in the mountains above Red Rocks.
From the top of the plateau, you can see both a cave and some staggered painted rocks. Following these illustrations, you’ll come across a tauren camp, which as far as I know has always been abandoned, even though there’s a raging fire.
Looking past buffalo rock, you can see one path leads to a blockade but with flying or via the zeppelin, this otherwise unknown area is now easily accessible.
The cave below looks like any other cave but venturing inside you quickly find that it’s empty. Whether this area was originally designed for something other than RP, it’s still a nice spot to visit.
Icecrown is composed of solid ice and home to the Frozen Throne and Icecrown Citadel. Due to the heavy Scourge presence in Icecrown, both the Horde and the Alliance use flying gunships as their base of operations instead of the traditional ground base. There are also quest chains covering the Scarlet Onslaught’s final outpost, as well as the presence of the corrupted Vrykul. Players normally return to the zone at max level for the Argent Tournament – a daily quest hub that has many vanity rewards, pets and mounts.
High Thane Jorfus – a death knight found patrolling The Fleshwerks, Sindragosa’s Fall or the courtyard by Icecrown Citadel.
Hildana Deathstealer – a val’kyr who floats around Ymirheim and Jotenheim.
Putridus the Ancient – a huge Scourge giant that patrols around the Bombardment and Icecrown Citadel. His hitbox is so big, you can target him from Dalaran and other zones.
One of my favourite rares and one who surprised Cool and I while were were doing the mini ring of blood in the area. We were mid fight 2P’ing one of the mini bosses and she floated into the ring. Luckily no one else was around but I quickly tagged her while we finished off the mini boss and then added her to the tally.
