The Redridge pack[1] is a tribe or clan[2] of gnolls found in almost every spot of the Redridge Mountains.

75 years prior to the First War the Redridge pack was led by Garfang. Garfang had spent years conquering the other gnoll packs in the surrounding regions until he had an entire army of vicious raiders at his command. The gnolls now began launching vicious attacks on Stormwind City itself, but only as a distraction — while the city soldiers were busy holding off the gnoll attacks, farmsteads in Westfall would burn. The numbers of raiders attacking the capital were so great that the kingdom could not afford to send troops to protect the outer agricultural areas, and these events would come to be referred to as the Gnoll War.

In order to stop the Redridge packlord King Barathen Wrynn and a small party of elite knights rode east to the Redridge Mountains, where Garfang's camp was located. The camp had been left exposed and undefended; the packlord had sent nearly all of his raiders to attack the capital, but had not accompanied them himself; like other gnolls, Garfang preferred to let others to his hard work for him. The battle between the king's knights and Garfang and his personal guards lasted for a full day and night until King Barathen himself sank his blade into the packlord's neck. With Garfang's death, the gnolls fell to infighting. Though several new self-proclaimed packlords arose, none had Garfang's cunning, and before long the gnolls had decimated their own numbers, allowing King Barathen, known thereafter as the Adamant, further decimate what remained of the gnoll packs. Though pockets of gnolls would remain in the distant corners of the kingdom, they would never again rise to become a major threat to Stormwind.[1]

At some point after the Cataclysm, when Makasa Flintwill and her friends were looking for a crystal shard of the Diamond Blade northeast of Lakeshire, they arrived near the area of gnolls. Reigol Valdread stopped them and asked Hackle to sniff the enemy gnolls out to confirm their presence. When Hackle returned, Makasa's group quickly passed the gnolls when they were moving east to hunt boars and entered a cave containing the crystal.[2]
