Home of the Furbolgs

The Grizzly Hills are one the the zones in the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King (WotLK) Expansion for the World of Warcraft. The zone is a wild frontier zone with hills and forests covering much of it. The zone is meant for low to mid-level expansion characters in the 72-74 level range. The zone has seen many recent changes from its history as an untamed frontier and as such there is a lot going on there. Join Byron "Messiah" Mudry for an overview of the zone to find out all the details.

The Drakkari Trolls and the Furbolgs both claim to be the first settlers to the region. They have argued and fought over the zone for much of their races history, and no one is really sure if the capital of Grizzlemaw or Drak'Tharon Keep was built first. Regardless of who was there first, the zone is indisputably the Furbolg homeland, and they outnumber everyone else in the zone. Everywhere you go throughout the zone you will see signs of Furbolg habitation, in the form of clan totems marking out territory. There are also rumors that a huge prehistoric bear exists and roams the zone. The bear has apparently been worshiped for many generations by the furbolgs. This could be an outdoor raid boss, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

You can find all the details in our Grizzly Hills Overview.
