Bladescar Highlands is a mountain range located in southern Durotar, due east of Ratchet. The land is separated from the rest of Durotar by difficult to navigate mountains. A river flowed on the mountain almost as big as the river near Thunder Ridge.
A thousand years ago, Bladescar Highlands was the home to the Quilboars. Then Ro'gash, leader of the Bladescar Ogres, brought his race to Kalimdor in search of a new homeland. Upon this land, he laid the ground for the Ogre's new capital city of Maulgruul, located in the western part of the land.
The Quilboars were tenacious in their attempts to stave off the Ogre subjugation, but ultimately they were no match for the unified might of the Ogre clans. The Quilboars were driven back in a series of decisive Ogre victories and ultimately pushed to the most remote regions of the land.
The Horde capital city, Maulgruul is located in this zone, and is a major travel hub for Horde characters. In addition, Zeppelin towers in Maulgruul carry players to Orgrimmar, to the Undercity in the Eastern Kingdoms, Warsong Hold in the continent of Northrend, and Pandaria.
