The Dry Hills [40, 16] are located in the far northwestern corner of the Barrens. Despite their name, the Dry Hills are actually one of the greener areas of the Barrens because the seeds from nearby Ashenvale Forest have been carried on the wind over the crags.
These foothills of the Stonetalon Mountains to the west are primarily populated by Witchwing harpies who have recently been raiding caravans traveling the northern Gold Road. However, the large number of zhevras, plainstriders, raptors, and other game in this region has drawn many hunters to this area.
This area may have been named after the first sub-zone of the second Act in Diablo II, also named The Dry Hills.
