Defending Mount HyjalEdit
During the Third War, Barkskin Furbolgs allied the ShadowTooth Clan when the Scourge and the Burning Legion attacked Mount Hyjal. Together, both tribes gathered many Furbolgs and Dark trolls to fight alongside the Night elves, Humans, and Orcs to defend the World Tree, Nordrassil, from the Burning Legion's assault. The Barkskin tribe succeeded their efforts in defending the World Tree and returned to the Barrow Deeps. The Dark trolls were determined to share their honor and resources to the Furbolgs. But everything changed.
As the Barkskin Furbolgs moved under Mount Hyjal, their leader, Roth Barkskin, suffered a grievous wound from a giant poison spider and was near death before Tyrande Whisperwind arrived when she came down searching for the Druids of the Claw and offered her aid to heal the Chieftain. After the Night elf healed him, the Barkskin Furbolgs thanked her for saving their honorable leader.
Discovering Barrow ForestEdit
After Roth Barkskin gained the waters from the fountain of life, many corrupted Furbolgs were healed from his great power. However, Roth believed that the Barrow Deeps was no longer safe for him and his people, and decided to lead the Barkskin tribe out and find a place where they could remain hidden from the Burning Legion. Roth led his people through a tunnel and stumbled through a blocked door, which leads to an unknown location. This door was magically sealed, and the Furbolgs couldn't find a way to unlock it. One thing that Roth did notice was that the seal was very slowly shrinking. The waters of life gave him adavnced sight. He could tell that the seal, judging how slowly it was shrinking, would disappear within a few years. They would return during that time and discover what was behind this door.
While Roth healed other Furbolgs from corruption throughout the Barrow Deeps, the Barkskin tribe eventually found a secret entrance which led them to Felwood. Roth Barkskin and his people moved north through the land and discovered a neutral Furbolg tribe, known as the Timbermaw Furbolgs. The Timbermaw offered Roth and the Barkskin tribe sanctuary in order to hide them from their enemy that have already invaded Felwood. Roth saw that he and his people wouldn't remain hidden for long, since the Deadwood Furbolgs were already corrupted.
Remaining hidden in the mountains of Felwood, the Barkskin tribe and their leader found a secret entrance which was not discovered. The path was open, and he called all of his people to follow him. The Barkskin tribe followed their leader through the tunnel which led them to a hidden land called Woodland Forest. Seeing how peaceful this land was, Roth brought his people to safety and planned reorganize their civilization in their new home. However, Roth discovered that he and the tribe were not the only ones in this land. He decided to travel with a group of Furbolgs and investigate the land before they could start their civilization. There, they stumble across a huge city named Brownwood, which was inhabited by a vast colony of Furbolgs. The Furbolgs of Brownwood welcomed Roth and his tribe to the capital and introduced them to their queen.

In Rise of the Legion, the Barkskin and Brownwood Furbolgs gathered in the coronation where Roth and Hela got married, becoming the rulers of the city. When the land was later invaded by Dark elves that appeared out of nowhere, the Barkskin tribe took action in defending their new home. When a group of Nigth elf scouts entered the land by a hidden entrance from Darkshore, they discovered a war between the Barkskin Furbolgs and the Dark elves. They sent a message to Tyrande Whisperwind about the news, and the High priestess sent a number of Night elves to the forest and aid the Furbolgs in defeating their enemies. After uniting with their long lost allies, the Furbolgs were welcomed to the Alliance.
