The chat channel in the Barrens has become internet famous for its tendency to degenerate into Chuck Norris jokes, mom jokes, and other recycled memes.
Most of the aptly-named Barrens is made up of open savanna.
However, the settlements peppered throughout the zone either reflect the architecture of the Native American-inspired Tauren
or war-happy orcs.
There are a few oases throughout the zone to break it up.
The seaside village of Ratchet is home to some lovable Goblins.
But the environmentally unfriendly Venture Company is here, polluting and strip-mining.
Deathwing made his mark in this zone also, burning a gigantic hole right through the middle of it.
