Shortly after the founding of Durotar, Rexxar and his companions journeyed to Thunder Ridge to obtain  [Shimmerweed] for Drek'Thar, Thrall's Far Seer. Rexxar noticed a change in the lizard's behavior, and informed Drek'Thar upon his return to Orgrimmar. Drek'Thar and Rexxar later discovered a human lumber operation that was deforesting the ridge and driving the lizards mad. They were forced to put down the lizards to prevent disaster.

Thunder lizards gave the place its name, once roaming the landscape in great numbers. Tallstriders were also seen hanging out on the fringes with an eye out for an easy lunch.[1] Before being flooded, the ridge was also a hideout for the Burning Blade, led by the goblin warlock Fizzle Darkstorm.[2]
