The Alterac Mountains have traditionally been a home for the humans of Dalaran and Alterac, members of the Alliance. Once the smallest nation in the Lordaeron Alliance, Alterac’s ruler, Lord Perenolde, betrayed the Alliance in the Second War. Alterac's honor has been blemished ever since. The rogue faction known as the Syndicate struggles to regain control of a wild land, while ruins dot the mountainsides and ogres patrol their territory.

The three settlements were all bases of peaceful activity, and were in the beginning at peace with each other. Then, during the second war, Alterac betrayed the Alliance and sided with the Horde. Enraged, the Alliance exiled the lord of Alterac and destroyed his capital, sending its people fleeing in all directions. Some of these people grew a hatred for the Alliance, and formed a new band of rogues and assassins dedicated to overthrowing the other human nations and reclaiming their home. They call themselves the Syndicate.

The ruins of the city of Alterac has since been claimed by a tribe of ogres, and the majestic city of Dalaran was annihilated by the demon lord Archimonde during the third war, and is currently warring against the Forsaken. What little Alliance activity is left in the region is centered around Dalaran and the entrances to Alterac Valley, where the Stormpike and Frostwolf factions vie for supremacy.

this is a zone? sneeze and you miss it. don't get me wrong it's got a couple endearing qualities, but it's so small heck the BG that's supposed to be based w/in this zone seems like it's twice it's size. it seems incomplete.

Most underdeveloped zone in the game after Azshara.
