Sun Rock Retreat is a Horde settlement in middle of the Stonetalon Mountains, south of Mirkfallon Lake. Though predominantly populated by a large number of both orcish and tauren shamans and warriors, devoted to repairing the damage done to the mountains by the Venture Co. and other malignant forces. The village, since the Cataclysm, has become mostly abandoned with only a few vendors and grunts still hanging around.

History

The RPG Icon 16x36.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft RPG and is considered non-canon.

The retreat is a tauren-controlled outpost run by a druid named Maggran Earthbinder. A mean-spirited blood elf named Braelyn Firehand also once resided here, she enticed travelers to carry out acts of violence against the night elves. She harbors a special hatred for the night elf Ordanus in Ashenvale, and actively speaks of hiring a stranger to carry out Ordanus's assassination. The other inhabitants of the retreat were concerned with discovering why elementals sprang from beneath the earth in Charred Vale.[1]

The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm

Some time prior to the Shattering, the village got under attack by the Grimtotem but were able to repel their attack. Its warriors then aided Baine in retaking Thunder Bluff.[2]
