Bladescar Highlands is a mountain range 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 Centaurs. Then Ro'gash, leader of the 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 Centaurs were tenacious in their attempts to stave off the Ogre incursion, but ultimately they were no match for the unified might of the Ogre clans. The centaurs were driven back in a series of decisive Ogre victories and ultimately pushed to the most remote regions of the land.
Just prior when N'Zoth is awakened, the land was discovered by a Horde expedition. The expedition was nearly attacked by members from the Grimtotem tribe, forcing the group to retreat. Varok Saurfang sent an army to investigate and eliminate the Grimtotem tribe. However, the Orc forces encountered a whole army of Ogres and their capital city, Maulgruul.
The Ogres and Orcs were about to attack until an army of Centaurs. Both armies united and fought against the centaurs, driving many back to their remote territories, preventing them from reaching the capital city. After driving them away, Ro'gash and his people were welcomed to the Horde.
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.
