Red Cloud Mesa is the name for the rolling plains atop the high cliffs in southern Mulgore. Here, young tauren adventurers cut their teeth on the nearly harmless wildlife. While they aren't out training on the grasslands, they return to Camp Narache in the northwest portion of the Mesa.
Red Cloud Mesa is known for being a place of peaceful, serene beauty without the threats found in the rest of the world. Only in the extreme northeast is any danger present. Brambleblade Ravine, so named for its enormous twisting, thorned vines, is inhabited by the Bristleback quilboar.
Here, Tauren can find Greatmother Hawkwind for the quest .

Once known for being a place of peaceful, serene beauty, Red Cloud Mesa has suffered visibly after coming under siege by the Bristleback quilboars. The quilboar spread out from their home of Brambleblade Ravine in the northeast, growing twisting, thorned vines on every piece of new territory they snatched. Burned out tauren huts line the warzone in which they fight against the tauren braves, and the water well formerly used in the area has been destroyed.
At the southwest corner, the former pass out of the mesa has been destroyed by a landslide and taken over by the leader of the quilboars, who created it into an area now known as Thornmantle's Hideout. A new exit leading down from the mesa was carved out of the hillside just north of Camp Narache. There is also a path leading up from the graveyard west of Camp Narache, to the top of Fargaze Mesa.
