The Bloody Foothills is the first area players encounter outside of Harrogath. They're also the location of Act V's first quest, Siege on Harrogath, where they must defeat Shenk the Overseer. It hosts the first enemies players will encounter in the act, notably Enslaved and Death Maulers with the occasional Demon Imp.
The area is also filled with Barbarians, similar to the ones that are available as Hirelings later in the act, fighting their way through the hordes of demons. They can be helpful, but they are not overwhelmingly strong. They can be useful as meat shields for low level characters, though if you find this area difficult you may wish to level up.
The Bloody Foothills is also home to a dozen or so Catapults. Their destruction is not essential to lifting the siege and completing the quest, but will rid the area of a large nuisance.
