For ages the Titans moved and shaped the earth, until at last there remained one perfect continent. At the continent's center, they crafted a lake of scintillating energies. The lake, which they named the Well of Eternity, was to be the fount of life for the world.
Its potent energies would nurture the bones of the world and empower life to take root in the land's rich soil. Over time, plants, trees, monsters, and creatures of every kind began to thrive on the primordial continent. As twilight fell on the final day of their labors, the Titans named the continent Kalimdor: "Land of Eternal Starlight" in their language.
With time, that landmass became home to a number of disparate races and creatures, all vying for survival amongst the savage elements of the waking world.
10,000 years ago, while the War of the Ancients was raging on, Sargeras' failed entrance through the Well of Eternity caused the unstable vortex within the Well's depths to explode and ignite a catastrophic chain of events known as the Great Sundering. The massive explosion sent massive quakes ripping through the tortured earth and the surging Well of Eternity buckled in upon itself and collapsed. The resultant catastrophic explosion shattered the earth and blotted out the skies. As the aftershocks from the implosion rattled the bones of the world, the seas rushed in to fill the gaping wounds left in the earth. Nearly eighty percent of Kalimdor's landmass had been blasted apart, leaving only a new, raging sea surrounding a handful of major continents and scattered islands: the Eastern Kingdoms, Kezan, Pandaria, Northrend, and the remnant still referred to as Kalimdor.
Currently, the ancient landmass known as Kalimdor would be called a supercontinent since all known lands on Azeroth were once a part of it.
Note: Blizzard Entertainment has yet to describe or comment the look of Kalimdor, the works presented here are fan fictions based on lore.
There's two theories regarding the original shape of Kalimdor. The first of them speculates the current continents were located at the same positions they are now, and the second one speculates the Great Sundering triggered a heavy continental drift that pushed the continents away from the Well of Eternity, the epicenter of the explosion.
RPGEditThis section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft RPG, and thus unlikely to be canon.
World of Warcraft: The Roleplaying Game states that the war between the Titans and the Old Gods "ripped Azeroth into new shapes". This would imply that Azeroth's surface would have been reshaped and not created.
