"Khaz Modan" in WoW Lore Edit

Khaz Modan is the mountainous kingdom of the Ironforge Clan, ruled by the Bronzebeard Clan, founded after the awakened dwarves ventured out from the ancient city of Uldaman. Named the "Mountain or Mountains of Khaz" after the Titan shaper Khaz'goroth, thought to be the creator of the dwarven race. The kingdom is ruled from the great underground city of Ironforge. Khaz Modan is also the name of the continent in which the kingdom is located, comprised of Dun Morogh, Loch Modan, the Wetlands, and the Badlands. The mountains here are also called the Khaz Mountains.

Sites for Tracking KM Raid Progression Edit


Pre-TBC Raid History Edit

A small number of guilds transfered to Khaz Modan when the realm went live, including Sunder, Vision, Prestige, DarkSin, Skunk Canyon Brigade, and the founders of the guilds Scoundrels and Minions Inc. Before the expansion The Burning Crusade was released in January, 2007, these guilds led Khaz Modan raid progression.

Having already cleared Blackwing Lair, the Alliance guild Sunder stood as the furthest progressing guild in Player vs Environment content, getting many "server firsts" by default. They continue to be the top guild on Khaz Modan, having been the first to down many bosses in content released since their transfer.

Sunder continued to lead the pack in instance progression, having downed C'thun in AQ40 on December 3, 2006, and cleared the Spider Wing of Naxxramas. A significant number of other Alliance guilds have also completed the content of MC, BWL, and Onyxia.

Scoundrels lead the Horde in PvE content and were working on downing C'Thun and progressing in Naxxramas. Retribution followed close behind, with Onyxia, MC, and BWL completed.

Player vs. Player Edit

Player vs. Player combat did not exist at all during the first month of the realm's existence - a player would be lucky to have at least one battleground match a day. Out of frustration the Alliance would lay siege to Orgrimmar or the Crossroads in a attempt to get their PvP fix.

Over time PvP became more frequent in the Khaz Modan community.

Patch 1.12 and PvP Edit

Patch 1.12 introduced cross realm battlegrounds. This allowed players from several different realms to come together for battlegrounds and reduced queue times tremendously. Before patch 1.12 it was common to wait for hours to get into a BG, but now queue times are often non-existent or a matter of minutes. Khaz Modan is a member of Battlegroup Vengeance.

Patch 2.0 and PvP Edit

On December 5th 2006, server patch 2.0.1 was released and introduced the new honor reward system. This new reward system allows players to accumulate honor points that can be spent like currency to purchase weapons, armor, and various other items beneficial for player-vs-player progression. The rankings no longer exist with this new system. The last players on Khaz Modan to reach Rank 14 were Ixnay (Alliance) and Wanagetdrunc (Horde).

The following players achieved Rank 14 (Grand Marshal) for the Alliance on the Khaz Modan server:

Sdotkilla, Devildwarf (aka Dorfalicious, Kleevage, Shådøwmøürnè, now Dd), Saidas, Lunchlady, Barea, Bru, Nitrowarrior, Nitezstalka, Bowlduster, Lykann, Jomamma (transferred to Blackhand), Aedan, Lightstar (transferred to Illidan), Wickedwonda,


The following players achieved Rank 14 (High Warlord) for the Horde on the Khaz Modan server:

Server History Edit

Khaz Modan was the name given to Realm Number 86. This realm was created to help alleviate the growing populations of other servers which were becoming increasingly over crowded with log in queue times up to 30 minutes. Blizzard blamed this on the growing population from the 2005 Holiday shopping season. On January 3, 2006, Khaz Modan went live.

Khaz Modan was specifically set up to allow transfers from four well-established realms:

During the first weeks after Khaz Modan went live there was not a lot of community activity. Cities were empty, battles between the Horde and the Alliance in the battlegrounds did not exist. Some were afraid that after they transfered they made a mistake due to the emptiness players felt when exploring Azeroth. However many players also enjoyed the wide open space and lag free major cities.

The population grew slowly but steadily, reaching a record high of nearly 20,000 active characters above level ten by July, 2007.

Server Hardware Retrofit Edit

On Tuesday, September 19th, 2006, the server was taken down along with a group of servers for new hardware upgrades. The server was down for 36 hours, and noted results have been lag improvements and smoother game play.

The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj: Patch 1.9 UnleashedEdit

Coincidently this Patch went live the same day that the Khaz Modan server went live. During the Opening of the Ahn`Qiraj Gate, the Alliance guild Sunder led both sides in the war effort to get these gates open as soon as possible and was also the guild that rang the gong to open the gates.

On February 28th, 2006, the Gates were opened by Elmiser of Sunder, and Ahn'Qiraj became available to the people of Khaz Modan. Khaz Modan was the 83rd realm to complete the War Effort.

C'Thun, the final boss of AQ40, was first killed by the Alliance guild Sunder on December 3, 2006.
