Dwarven siege machines guard the entrance to this mighty fortress

Dun Garok is a dwarven fortress nestled into the southeastern hills of Hillsbrad Foothills. Captain Ironhill currently leads the fortress's garrison. The dwarves help protect the humans of Hillsbrad as well as the Azurelode Mine.

Alliance players will find little of interest within the fortress besides the friendly Dwarf NPCs.

The Forsaken loathe the presence of the dwarves and have several quests for Horde players that require them to infiltrate Dun Garok.

Ghosts of Dun Garok after the Cataclysm

Something terrible has happened to Dun Garok during the Cataclysm. The dwarves are all dead and the area is now haunted by Dun Garok Spirits. The ghost of Captain Ironhill has remained in Dun Garok, not for vengeance like the others, but out of sadness for his people that have remained. He would task Horde adventurers to release their spirits from the place. Also, the ghost of Tamra Stormpike can occasionally be found in the main quarters seething with hatred.
