Sun Rock Retreat
Central Stonetalon Mountains
|Sources: World of Warcraft|
Sun Rock Retreat is a Horde settlement centrally-located in the Stonetalon Mountains, hidden amid the peaks south of Mirkfallon Lake. It was once the area's primary hub of activity and trade, hosting a contingent of predominantly orcish and tauren forces devoted to repairing the damage done to the mountains by the Venture Co. and other malignant forces. In the wake of the Cataclysm and the establishment of other Horde settlements at Krom'gar Fortress and Cliffwalker Post, however, the village has become little more than a geographical footnote, offering few services and even fewer reasons to visit.
In the RPG
The retreat is a tauren-controlled outpost run by a druid named Maggran Earthbinder. A mean-spirited blood elf named Braelyn Firehand also once resided here, she enticed travelers to carry out acts of violence against the night elves. She harbors a special hatred for the night elf Ordanus in Ashenvale, and actively speaks of hiring a stranger to carry out Ordanus's assassination. The other inhabitants of the retreat were concerned with discovering why elementals sprang from beneath the earth in Charred Vale.
