ZoneThe Barrens
The Crossroads, often referred to as "XR", is the largest Horde city located in The Barrens at the intersection of the Gold Road running North/South and the road to Ratchet which runs East/West. Because of its close proximity to Ashenvale to the North and Ratchet to the East, the Alliance tend to prey on Crossroads occasionally. Quests available here are between levels 10 and 30. There are also many vendors and trainers who call the Crossroads home.

Crossroads is a simple town, meaning it lacks special services such as a bank, auction house, or class trainers. Crossroads does boast an inn, mailbox, and flightmaster, however. Other facilities include a grave yard, a butcher, equipment repair, forge and anvil, and stables.
