New starting areas Edit

The new races generally have more elaborate and better rendered starting zones than the original races, but with Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm, gnomes have gotten an upgraded starting area, New Tinkertown, separate from dwarves in Dun Morogh and likewise trolls now can use the Echo Isles in Durotar as a starting area.

New for Bc icon Burning Crusade Edit

Bc icon This section concerns content exclusive to The Burning Crusade.

As the first new playable races introduced in an expansion, the blood elves (Official horde mini-icon) and draenei (Official alliance mini-icon) got extensive new areas to start in and return to with associated new capital cities.

For IconSmall Blood Elf Male blood elves Edit

Starting zones
  • Eversong Woods - surrounding the capital city and dressed in golden-hued fall colors. Contains the starting subzone of Sunstrider Isle of the northwest coast where new characters start.
  • The Ghostlands - a shrouded and corrupted extension of the woods to the south.
Capital

For IconSmall Draenei Male draenei Edit

Starting zones
  • Azuremyst Isle - surrounds the capital on its west coast with the small island of Ammen Vale starting subzone off the southern side of its east coast where new characters start.
  • Bloodmyst Isle - strangely altered, but similarly sized island north of Azuremyst Isle dominated by mostly orange and reddish hues. The coloration may be related to the unexpectedly strong presence of blood elves.
Capital
  • The Exodar is actually a very large crashed and disabled starship that serves as a city and haven to all draenei. The Prophet Velen ponders the future of his people down in the Exodar.
