Refuge Pointe before Battle for Azeroth.

Refuge Pointe is a base of the kingdom of Stromgarde. It's rather an outpost than a town since it has only tents and no mailbox. The inn is the southernmost tent, and there is also an Alliance entrance to the Arathi Basin.

Prior to the Cataclysm, the road between Stromgarde Keep and Refuge Pointe was patrolled by Stromgarde Cavalrymen led by Lieutenant Valorcall, the cavalry leader of Stromgarde.[1]


When the Stromgarde capital fell in ruins following the Third War, most of the populace fled south, while the proud remnants of the Stromgarde army stayed behind, determined to fight on to reclaim their land.[2] The Alliance's military operations were conducted from here, and most concerned with aiding the kingdom forces in retaking their former capital, but also to secure resources for the Alliance in the Highlands.

World of Warcraft

At some point, Archmage Malin sent Apprentice Kryten and Skuerto to Refuge Point, in order to collect reagents for him.[3]

When the League of Arathor and the Alliance intended on expanding their hold from Refuge Pointe to retake Arathi, Deathstalker Mortis tasked Horde adventurers to stop them by taking their supplies.[4]

After Thandol Span and its dwarven troops suffered heavy damage due to a Dark Iron attack,[5] Rhag Garmason sent the Alliance adventurer to ask Captain Nials if Refuge Point could spare some soldiers to help them reclaim Dun Modr and the Thandol Span. However, Nials had no choice but to refuse since Stromgarde had fallen, which forced them to mobilize all of their forces and resources to regain control of Stromgarde Keep. She explained that honor and duty required them not to leave the Highlands until then, and that Longbraid the Grim would be on his own.[2]

Following the Cataclysm, by order of King Varian Wrynn, Alliance adventurers had to report to Captain Nials at Refuge Pointe, in order to fight the ogres and Syndicate criminals that sullied Stromgarde Keep' streets, and to help redeem the honor of the ancient kingdom.[6]

After the battle of Thandol Span, Thargas Anvilmar tasked the Alliance adventurer to warn Captain Nials about what happened at Dun Modr and to keep an eye on the actions of the Twilight's Hammer.[7]

Battle for Azeroth
