This area begins as a simple grove of trees, a pond and an abandoned mine which overlook the Tanaan Channel to the north. After the Alliance expedition (consisting of the player, Khadgar, Thrall, Maraad, etc.) have finished the Assault on the Dark Portal scenario, their stolen Iron Horde ship is beached on the northern shores of Shadowmoon Valley. They are promptly met by Velen, who knows of their plight and gifts the plateau of Lunarfall to the player to use as a beachhead for their expedition.
Velen chose this particular location as it commands the entrance of the valley.
Conversion into an Alliance Garrison
Khadgar creates a portal and Baros Alexston comes through with workers to start building the garrison. Once an Alliance player has completed the prerequisite quests, they establish a level 1 garrison on the plateau. This small town consists of some palisade walls and a few scattered huts and tents. From this point forward, when the player enters the plateau, they are greeted with text defining the area as "Lunarfall <Player>'s Outpost". When the garrison is upgraded to level 2, a Town Hall is built, the walls are extended outward and strengthened and more building plots are added. It becomes known as "Lunarfall <Player>'s Fort". When upgraded to level 3, the size of the town hall is increased, the outer walls are further fortified, and location is finally defined as "Lunarfall <Player>'s Garrison".
Your town hall will be your main base in the entire garrison. While you're off exploring, Lieutenant Thorn takes care of your Garrison. She finds and reports missions that are in need of your attention. You can access them from your Command Table. Every mission requires you to pick several followers in order to start it. For each mission, certain followers are better than others. Each mission will either result in a success or failure. Should your followers return in glories victory, you will receive either gold, garrison resources or equipment and bounties destined for a commander. Followers also have traits which work better at countering certain enemies. Remember, each mission takes a certain amount of time to complete. So after sending them off, be sure to return later to assign them to new missions.
