Map of Warsong GulchWarsong Gulch is a contested area located deep in the Nightsong Woods in Ashenvale. Both the orcish Warsong Clan and the night-elven Silverwing Sentinels seek to claim the area for settling. Each has established a fortress at one end of the gulch. Each team is seeking to raid their opponents' fortress, capture their banner, and return it to their own base. At the same time, they must avoid having their own banner stolen that way. Stealthing, mounting, or shielding (or dying) all cause the flag-bearer to drop the banner. It can be picked up by another member of the same faction and carried further or picked up by a member of the owning team and replaced back in the fortress.

The instance entrances (and faction vendors) for the Gulch are located at the border of Ashenvale and the Barrens. The Alliance entry point is along the mountains east of Silverwing Refuge and the Horde point in the Barrens, west of the Gold Road and southwest of the Mor'shan Rampart.

396 bonus honor is given for each flag capture. Winners receive an additional 198 bonus honor (1386 total for a win). During the Warsong Battlegrounds weekend, winners gain an additional 990 honor (2376 total), losers gain 594 honor just for trying. Note that if you enter a Battleground late (when one or more captures have already happened), you do not earn the bonus for the captures before your entrance.
