Like most Horde outposts, Splintertree is mainly populated by orcs and tauren, all of whom are primarily scouts and guards. There are several quest givers, a heavy armor vendor for repairs, an inn, mailbox, stable master, and a flight path maintained by flight master Vhulgra. There is also quite a big cave dug by horde peons in the back of Splintertree Post. It is referred to as Splintertree Mine. Like the Crossroads to the south, Splintertree Post is often raided by Alliance parties on PvP servers.
Due to its location near the Warsong Lumber Camp, it is possible that Splintertree was once established and occupied by Grom Hellscream's Warsong troops during the Third War when the orcs first ventured into Ashenvale. The night elves, still on uneven ground with the past actions of the Warsong leader and with the strain on the Horde/Alliance Peace agreements from the last war, subject Splintertree to a high amount of retaliation, especially since raids on Astranaar are frequent.This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.
Splintertree is under attack by Alliance forces. Many of the guards located just outside the fortifications appear to have fled or been killed. Feran Strongwind is the most notable among the deceased. A Splintertree Demolisher helps to hold the Alliance at bay.
