The Shatterspear trolls are friendly to the Horde and were originally neutral to the Alliance until the escalation of hostilities following Garrosh Hellscream's takeover as the new Warchief of the Horde. These once peaceful villagers of Shatterspear Vale have since then come under siege by the forces of the nearby night elves of Darkshore, after they joined the Horde by invitation of the new warchief who sent a battalion of horde enforcers helping the trolls to construct several fortifications the nearby area outside the vale, including the Shatterspear War Camp, all in preparation for an assault on Lor'danel. The ground around the Vale is covered with numerous troll corpses, as Lor'danel Sentinels combat the Shatterspear trolls from both the air (Sentinels mounted on Hippogryphs) and the ground with their Ancient allies wreaking havoc on the ground.
Shatterspear Vale serves as a night elf quest hub in Darkshore, connected to the Ruins of Mathystra and Lor'danel via a Nightsaber Rider. The Vale is reached by foot from the Ruins of Mathystra through a fortified passage that leads up to a tunnel at the end section of the Shatterspear Pass.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Shatterspear Vale comes under attack, and is now accessible from the Ruins of Mathystra through Shatterspear Pass.
