Westfall is a zone featured in World of Warcraft. It is located in the southern portion of the Eastern Kingdoms, and is adjacent to both Elwynn Forest and Duskwood.

Layout and Geography[edit | edit source]

Westfall is noted for it's vast openness and the location of several different farms. Sentinel Hill is the main hub.

Classic to Wrath of the Lich King[edit | edit source]

Initially, Westfall was designated as a zone for levels 10-20. The Defias Brotherhood, led by Edwin VanCleef, took up residence in Moonbrook and garnered control of the Deadmines and the surrounding areas.

Cataclysm[edit | edit source]

The Sundering affected Westfall significantly - a large chasm ripped open the ground in the western area of the zone. Westfall has also become an "outcast" zone for Stormwind residents who are homeless, jobless, and otherwise have no place else to go. Their misfortune has caused them much aggravation and distress, and many believe Varian Wrynn is to blame for the current state of affairs. Meanwhile, mysterious murders have been happening on the farmsteads, with the investigation being led by Horatio Lane and his team of investigators. As the player progresses through the storyline, there are instances where a "shadowy woman" contacts various agents, recruiting them for an uprising, which takes place in Moonbrook. The player eventually discovers that the woman is Vanessa VanCleef, daughter of Edwin VanCleef; her and the Defias shadowguards attempt to burn Sentinel Hill to the ground.

Legion[edit | edit source]

During the Legion pre-patch, Westfall was one of the Legion's invasion points.
