Mulgore is temperate with hills, plains (grassland), and some rugged mountains.[2]

Mulgore is a sheltered and pastoral valley surrounded by mountains on all sides, and accessible only through a pass to the southeast. Resembling a huge pasture, the area is covered with verdant green grass and few trees. An oddity of the landscape, the tall cliffs of Thunder Bluff tower over the fields in the center of the zone.

It is possible for non-tauren to explore Red Cloud Mesa without actually running all the way up. By hugging the cliff below, the area will appear on the map.

Mulgore contains no dungeons of any type and no battlegrounds.

The quilboar activity has increased at Red Cloud Mesa, so much that great portions of the normally fertile area has now been transformed into giant mazes of brambles. In addition, the usual pass between the Mesa and the remainder of Mulgore has collapsed. A new entry has been laid directly from Camp Narache north to the rolling grasses nearBloodhoof Village.

A path stretches down now from the hills that border Stonetalon Mountains. The Grimtotem are attempting to strike from this camp, but Baine Bloodhoof has other ideas. A new Tauren encampment has also been erected northeast of this embattled path, Camp Sungraze.

Despite the loss of their beloved chief, it seems the remainder of Mulgore has escaped the wrath of the Cataclysm.
