Howling in the Hills
Level [21], found in Redridge Mountains

This is a follow up to A Baying of Gnolls which you must complete in order to begin this one. Speak to Verner Osgood outside the Lakeshire smithy, he will say:

{name}, the gnolls are still out there. I can hear their baying as they hunt in the hills above Lakeshire. And one cry is louder than the rest - Yowler, their leader.

Kill Yowler and send his pack scattering! Bring me his paw as proof.

And be careful, this gnoll is their leader for a reason. He is no Mongrel...

To reach Yowler you must venture into the valleys north of Lakeshire and fight your way through large numbers of Redridge Brutes (level 17-18), Redridge Mystics (level 18-19) and Redridge Bashers (level 19-20). Continue til you reach the second valley from the road. Here you wilol see a camp guarded by Redridge Alphas (level 21-22) and amidst them is Yowler (level 22). This can be a tough fight, but with a small group it's not that terrible. Kill him and loot the corpse for his paw, then return to Verner Osgood who will say:

Again, thank you for your help. The Stormwind Army is so busy dealing with the orcs, they don't have troops to protect Redridge from local threats like the gnolls.

And this ends the quest line here with some nice rewards to choose from.

Yowler has been nerfed since this guide was written! His level should be more equal to the quest level.
