Why are there Alliance NPCs riding around in the Barrens?

I noticed them too one day. It's not like they're part of any quest chain that I'm aware of, it's just some patrol that roams through. <shrug>

Actually, if you kill them you get a drop that starts a quest. It's not unheard of from the opposite site either, as near Loch Modan there are Horde outrunners.

I assume you mean the pack of rare elite Alliance outriders? If you killed them they drop "A runed scroll" which starts a quest. The story is soething along the lines of someone in Darnassus is sending spys out into the barrens and the outriders were delivering a message back to them, you have to go and kill one of their officials to send a warning to stay out of horde territory.

I saw them the other day too, on my way to put out fires. They are rare elites, but were friendly to me. I'm guessing they drop something good for young hordies though!
