LocationEastern Azeroth

The Eastern Kingdoms (a few times called Azeroth[1][2][3][4][5][6]) are the eastern continents on the world of Azeroth.[7] The Eastern Kingdoms is made up from a group of smaller continents (Azeroth, Khaz Modan and Lordaeron) formed from the original continent of Kalimdor following the Great Sundering. The Eastern Kingdoms lie to the east of the Great Sea and to the west of the Forbidding Sea. The central part of the Eastern Kingdoms is dominated by the Khaz Mountains and the Redridge Mountains. Both cover several zones. The Eastern Kingdom's western counterpart is the continent of Kalimdor.

Eastern Kingdoms after the Cataclysm

The Eastern Kingdoms include the three continents of Lordaeron,[8] Khaz Modan,[9] and Azeroth.[10] The Eastern Kingdoms are the homes of the undead, dwarves, gnomes, blood elves, humans, worgen, and few remaining high elves.

An old map that was on the Blizzard web site and the Warcraft RPG shows that the Eastern Kingdoms are divided into three continents:

Quel'Thalas seems to make up a fourth continent in some maps. Most of the time, it appears that the Eastern Kingdoms are divided into only three continents, as Quel'Thalas is shown as part of northern Lordaeron.

Geography Edit

Eastern Kingdoms is actually considered to be three subcontinents: Lordaeron in the north, Khaz Modan in the middle, and Azeroth (the continent) in the south. It has a variety of climates like Kalimdor, but has more zones that show damage from humanoid intervention. The Alliance dominates the central and southern parts of the continent (with the exception of Stranglethorn Vale). However, the north is the stronghold of the Forsaken and regions scarred by the Scourge.

Unlike Kalimdor, the Eastern Kingdoms have very few desert areas (except maybe the Badlands), but several areas are wastelands (the Blasted Lands, Burning Steppes, Deadwind Pass, and Searing Gorge). It has a few more specifically swampy areas like the Swamp of Sorrows and the Wetlands, but temperate forests and hills proliferate. For some reason the mountainous areas surrounding Ironforge appear to be perpetually snowy, while most of the other regions are temperate or warmer.
