is a bastion of the Alliance in the northwest corner of the Jade Forest. The Horde zeppelin, Hellscream's Fist, lands before it after being hit by Alliance gunfire. Though the troops within the Hold are eventually overrun by the Horde forces, they succeed in destroying the zeppelin, leaving the Horde stranded in the forest and cut off from reinforcements.
The Horde encounter the dangerous sha here, as well as make first contact with the pandaren. The sha claim the Hold, forcing the Horde to turn to the unknown dangers in the jungle.
