Sentinell Hill

Sentinel Hill has been recently reinforced with the return of Gryan Stoutmantle and the Westfall Brigade from the war in Northrend. The King has sent supplies, troops, and siege engines in hopes of rebuilding the former breadbasket of the kingdom and to house the citizens of Stormwind whose homes were destroyed. From Sentinel Hill, the Westfall Brigade has been able to reclaim much of the lands, such as Moonbrook, the Furlbrow's Pumpkin Farm, and The Jansen Stead. The town isn't finished yet, and cannot let the homeless that surround the town in yet.

Most human characters visit during their adventures sometime after level 10. Sentinel Hill is located southwest of Stormwind and has only a few vendors.

It has a flight path (gryphon roost), barracks-like inn, mailbox, forge,anvil, multiple cottages, and lumber mill down the hill from Sentinel Tower.

The Sentinel Hill graveyard is considered the default graveyard for Alliance players, much like the Crossroads graveyard for Horde players.

Sentinel Hill after the quest A [15] Rise of the Brotherhood

When the player first arrives, the area appears to be under construction and is under constant attack from the Riverpaw gnolls. Low-level players should be mindful of this and not wander off should gnolls spawn on top of you. At the gate, assorted refugees are held in check by guards and will occasionally throw garbage at them and say things like, "This is poop!"

After the quest A [15] Rise of the Brotherhood, Hope Saldean is revealed to be Vanessa VanCleef, daughter of Edwin VanCleef and leader of the reformed Defias Brotherhood. She leads a sneak attack against Sentinel Hill. From there on, the town burns and is constantly attacked by the Defias instead of the gnolls, leaving only one building usable, Sentinel Tower. The various trainers and vendors are crammed inside the tower and the guard NPCs stand alert near the flight master.

Notes

  • This could possibly be a reference to the Sentinel Hill in H.P. Lovecraft's story "The Dunwich Horror".
