The ghosts of Dun Garok.

Dun Garok was a dwarven keep nestled into the southeastern hills of Hillsbrad Foothills. Led by Captain Ironhill, the dwarves helped protect the humans of Hillsbrad as well as the Azurelode Mine. The Forsaken loathed the presence of these dwarves and once offered several quests for Horde adventurers to infiltrate Dun Garok and kill the dwarves within.

The Forsaken, outnumbering the dwarves ten-to-one, assaulted them with all their might. The dwarves fought until the bitter end, but every last one of them died in defense of Dun Garok.[1]

The dwarves who fell in battle rose again as Dun Garok Spirits and now haunt the land, refusing to yield it even in death. The Forsaken eventually gave up on trying to inhabit the fortress and let the dead spirits keep their land.[2]

The ghost of Captain Ironhill has remained in Dun Garok, not for vengeance, but out of sadness for his people that have remained. He tasks Horde adventurers to release their spirits from the place. Additionally, the ghost of Tamra Stormpike can occasionally be found in the main quarters, seething with hatred.

Some time later, the Forsaken finally took over Dun Garok by controlling the ghosts. Meanwhile, troops from Ironforge marched to purge the Forsaken and the ghosts, and to retake the fortress. Jezelle Pruitt and Brandur Ironhammer‎ were encountered here, by the Alliance and Horde respectively.[3]
