Through an unfortunate twist of heritage, Orto Copperhammer shared ownership of these mines with a cousin, Brag, a Stone Summit warlord. When Brag learned that Ortho had trade agreements with the human settlements in the foothills, he led a raid on the mines to punish his cousin. Today this area serves as an outpost for adventurers on their way to the Frozen Forest.
Located in the Southern Shiverpeaks, this small outpost serves as a pit-stop and launchpad for travelers looking to journey to the Granite Citadel, capture skills, or do the quest The Hero's Challenge. If you are doing that quest, Sanyi will be standing outside the exit to the Frozen Forest.
