An outpost of the 450 strong dwarven expedition based at Bael Modan, the Bael'dun Digsite is a large quarry dug into the mountainside in the western edge of Mulgore[33, 47]. This incursion has provoked the local Tauren tribes, who see the excavations as an affront to the Earthmother, and as diplomatic solutions failed, the Bloodhoof Tauren have resolved to drive the invaders out by force.
Lands of Mystery
According to Lands of Mystery, after Brann Bronzebeard visited the dwarves of the digsite he knew he needed to act before his friends were put in greater danger. While he visited Thunder Bluff he suggested to Cairne Bloodhoof that he send a group of his own people to work with the dwarves in exchange for making sure that the land was properly cared for. Cairne agreed to bring up his offer to his council of elders for discussion. Apparently it worked, as Baine Bloodhoof asked a group of young tauren to act as emissaries to the dwarven excavation of Bael’dun to convince the dwarves to cease their careless digging. Given enough effort, the tauren apparently convinced the dwarves to allow a shaman to oversee their site to make sure that the land is properly cared for during the excavation, and that the dwarves return to the land as much as they take.
Cataclysm however paints a different picture of the events leading up to now. In Cataclysm, it is revealed that the dwarves refused to heed their taurens warnings and their reckless digging infuriated the spirits of the land who killed them. Ahmo Thunderhorn now sends tauren to calm the Earth spirits in the ruined dig site with a magic drum.
Where to start? Well, somebody would say all the way back to Warcraft I (aka Warcraft: Orcs & Humans or the First War), or maybe Warcraft II (aka Tides of Darkness or the Second War up to and including Wrath of the Lich King, Warcraft III is the best place to start. Also, this game then elicits more interesting questions. For instance, how Illidan Stormrage became so hated or where the Scourge started.
