Warcraft Orcs and Humans - Humans Mission 11

Minimap of the mission.

In World of Warcraft?

It may be one of the two Lost One outposts, the Harborage or the Fallow Sanctuary.

In World of Warcraft, there are orcish ruins directly south of Nethergarde Keep in the Blasted Lands that may be the remains of Rockard. When the Dark Portal was first opened, the entire area was considered the Black Morass, so it is possible for the remnants of Rockard to exist close to the border of the Swamp of Sorrows, and is still in close proximity to Stonard. Currently, cultists occupy the area, however, players can clearly see orcish ruins in the area (towers, buildings, and a mine).

Other explanation for Warcraft I

Rockard may have been the outpost destroyed by Doomhammer in the mission Blackhand, giving a reason why it was never rebuilt.
