'''Northshire Valley''' is a pristine valley in [[Elwynn Forest]] in which both [[Northshire Abbey]]{{coords|37|49|Northshire Valley}}, [[Echo Ridge Mine]]{{coords|32|17|Northshire Valley}},  and the [[Northshire Vineyards]]{{coords|55|76|Northshire Valley}} are located.

This is where the [[human]] starting area is located, though the valley is visited by adventurers from all over the world.

In the valley area outside of Northshire Abbey, there are low-level [[wolf|wolves]] and [[kobold]]s, both of which are {{reputation|neutral}} and will not attack players on sight. It is advisable for players to stay here until they reach a minimum level of five to better prepare for encountering mobs outside the starter area.

Northshire Valley is a pristine valley in Elwynn Forest in which both Northshire Abbey[37, 49]Echo Ridge Mine[32, 17],  and the Northshire Vineyards[55, 76] are located. The Northshire River[55, 35] also flows through it. This is where the human starting area is located, though the valley is visited by adventurers from all over the world.

Northshire Valley is surrounded by impenetrable mountains, with the exception of a pass to the south which is protected by thick stone walls and guarded by Stormwind Guards. A river runs through the valley, which eventually exits Northshire and empties into Crystal Lake.

The guards of Stormwind have trouble maintaining the peace in Northshire Valley due to an increase in activity from various threats. Prior to the 0400Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm, the guards had to contend with wolves inhabiting the woods, kobolds infesting the areas in and around Echo Ridge Mine, and the Defias Brotherhood thugs and pillagers led by Garrick Padfoot attacking the vineyards. Now, though, the Blackrock orcs, under command of Kurtok the Slayer, have invaded the vineyards completely, setting fire to much of the eastern half of the Valley. Echo Ridge Mine has been indefinitely closed, but goblin assassins lurk throughout the area.
