Frostfire Ridge is a harsh land of ceaseless winter and volcanic peaks, where travelers encounter molten lava as often as painfully cold snow. Rock-hewn Bladespire Fortress, built to grandiose heights by the ogres who occupy its halls, is one of the few structures able to remain standing amidst this inhospitable wilderness. It’s the perfect target for the survivalist orcs of the Frostwolf clan.[1]
"Like the great wolves that roam here, we survive in this land according to its rules."
Chieftain Durotan[2]
Frostfire Ridge.

Frostfire Ridge is a zone in north-western Draenor. It is home to the Frostwolf clan and the Thunderlord clan. The ogre stronghold-turned Horde capital, Bladespire Citadel is located here. When Draenor shattered and became Outland, Frostfire Ridge and Gorgrond were pressed together to become the Blade's Edge Mountains. Several recognizable landmarks in Blade's Edge Mountains can be found in Frostfire, such as the Circle of Blood and the rock spires jutting from the earth. The Blade's Edge Mountain, the namesake of the future mountain range that Frostfire would become, can be found near Bladespire Citadel.

Frostfire Ridge is the starting zone for Horde characters in Draenor. Its Alliance counterpart is Shadowmoon Valley.

History

Stub.png Please add any available information to this section.

In the past, the Gorian Empire ruled over Frostfire Ridge, Bladespire Citadel serving as far-flung outpost.[3] During those times, when the orcs were still enslaved by the ogres, the legendary Thunderlord hero Brakor wielded the mighty spear  [Gronnsbane].[4]

Getting there

Players will get to Frostfire Ridge after completing the Dark Portal event, landing just west of Frostwall, the location of the Horde Garrison.

Geography

Frostfire Ridge is an area of extremes - snow and ice-covered glaciers in one area, active volcanoes spewing lava in another. The region is defined by the volcanic activity of late, so be wary of gigantic cliffs in otherwise normal plains.

Trivia

Unused concept art for the Frostwind desert.
  • During the initial planning phase, the land was to be an icy desert with purple sand dunes called Frostwind. However, the purple sand in the concept art was frequently mistaken for snow, eventually resulting in the desert idea being abandonded in favor of a frozen wasteland with volcanic activity.
