Alterac City was the former capital city of the kingdom of Alterac. During the Second War, it was ruled by Lord Aiden Perenolde. The Syndicate controlled the capital city for a time, but the Crushridge clan of ogres drove them away. Now, the Ruins of Alterac serve as the ogres' base camp and largest settlement. Mug'thol, a ferocious and crafty warlord, rules the clan. The Ruins of Alterac are what remains of Alterac City.
