Three Corners

Three Corners is a crossroads just inside Redridge Mountains. The crossroads splits three ways and leads to the "Three Shires": Goldshire in Elwynn Forest to the west, Lakeshire in Redridge to the east, and Darkshire in Duskwood. In its middle stands Tower Watch, a scout tower that by the time of the Blood War has the reputation of being one of the Alliance's more well-defended towers.[1]

Though once a relatively quiet spot patrolled by a lone Stormwind guard, Guard Parker, Three Corners has been built up significantly since the Cataclysm. In addition to the watchtower where the newly promoted Watch Captain Parker studies the encroaching gnolls, barricades with Redridge Garrison Watchmen attempt to keep the riffraff out. In case there was any doubt as to the purpose of the barricades, the accompanying signs, like those of Westfall, read "ABSOLUTELY NO TRANSIENTS! NO EXCEPTIONS!"

Alliance adventurers venturing here from Elwynn are asked to assist in keeping the gnolls in check and further examining the situation in Redridge.

During the Blood War, Mathias Shaw of the SI:7 arrived here and gave the guards a night off, apparently to allow Varok Saurfang to easily pass through the area. Dark Ranger Lyana and the Horde champion disguised themselves as humans and questioned its guards and Darcy Parker for anything suspicious that could help them locate Varok.[2]
