Coldridge Valley is the starting area for young dwarven recruits, and contains the base camp of Anvilmar. It is located in the southwestern corner of Dun Morogh, and is linked to the greater area by Coldridge Pass to the northeast. The road through the pass leads through a tunnel which is infested with trogg raiders. It continues east and then north through Kharanos, and further winds up the mountains terminating into the dwarven capital of Ironforge.
Coldridge Valley contains three small camps where dwarves and gnomes receive missions to defend the region from the encroaching troggs, trolls, and wildlife. Other tasks such as collecting gear parts to delivering hot stew are found here as well. When the young recruits are deemed ready to move on, they are sent out through the pass.
This area of Dun Morogh has creatures level 1 to 5.
