Strahnbrad is a Syndicate-controlled ghost town located east of Alterac and south of Andorhal in the former human kingdom of Lordaeron. Strahnbrad is situated in a strategic position of the northern foothills of the Alterac Mountains. The town has an abandoned town hall and blacksmith.

There is a Horde flightmaster, Phillip Harding, located nearby. Gol'dir, formerly a prisoner, stands next to him.

History

Strahnbrad in Warcraft III.

First War

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

Strahnbrad was part of the Kingdom of Alterac prior to the First War.[1]

Third War

Ravaging Blackrock orcs raided Strahnbrad shortly prior to the Third War, in order to capture slaves to sacrifice in the name of the Burning Legion.[2] The settlement was almost completely defenseless (only a handful of footmen were stationed in the town), but they were able to send a request for help before the attack started. In response, the Knights of the Silver Hand moved quickly to prevent the orcs' aggression, dispatching the legendary paladin Uther the Lightbringer and Prince Arthas to the scene. Uther advanced to the orc encampment to try and stop the orcs from attacking, and Arthas was sent to defend Strahnbrad, in case Uther was too late.

On his way to Strahnbrad, Arthas rescued Little Timmy from gnolls and killed Menag, Benedict, and their band, the Bloodhill Bandits, who were notorious in the region. Arthas and his footmen arrived later at Strahnbrad, but the attack had already begun. Dean, Joe, Mike, Scott, and many more villagers died. Some defenders of Strahnbrad reunited with Arthas and his men and together they were able to rout the orcs easily. The attack was directed by the Slave Master of the Blackrock orcs, but Arthas and his men defeated his grunts and raiders, finally killing him. The Alliance won the battle, but much of Strahnbrad's population was devastated by the Blackrock raid.[3]

World of Warcraft

Strahnbrad was one of the few settlements of Lordaeron to survive the coming of the Plague of Undeath, but fell years later to the Syndicate without the protection of Lordaeron's army. Now inhabited by Syndicate personnel, Strahnbrad is a base of operations for that organization as it conducts efforts throughout the Hillsbrad Foothills and Arathi Highlands aimed at weakening the Alliance.

Cataclysm

All of these quests in Strahnbrad were removed from the game. This area no longer serves any purpose, other than killing Syndicate members for reputation.

The Forsaken dark rangers have taken control over the abandoned Strahnbrad and were using it to launch guerrilla tactics against Alliance forces.[4] The Horde also attacked an Alliance army here coming from the Plaguelands.[5]

Strombrad was once a thriving city,[6] but now it has become the main base of operations for the Syndicate.[7] The group has renovated the jail, and digging teams are constantly breaking into old cellars and sealed vaults in order to find treasures that the Scourge overlooked.[6]

Notes

  • Stores called "Bob's Guns" and "Tracey's Armory" could be seen in Strahnbrad during the Third War.
