Feralas is a rainforest surrounded by arid zones in southern Kalimdor. It’s known for many things, including the mystery surrounding Dire Maul – a former city of the Highborne that drew upon demonic energy to stay immortal. There’s also a strong Night Elf presence – both in Feathermoon Stronghold, the base of operations for the Sentinels, and in numerous ruins scattered around the zones.
One point of interest is the Twin Colossals – two large mountains where players can be teleported up to one of the plateaus. Once up there you can purchase a parachute (of short duration) for the descent, so don’t use it too soon :P Before you were able to fly in the zone, this proved quite detrimental to peoples health. Reminds me of a certain warrior back then who had died up in the cliffs somewhere and then asked me to rez his body… wherever it was. :P
Feralas is also the location of one of the four Great Trees leading to the Emerald Dream and previously guarded by the four Emerald Dragons. The three others could be found in Ashenvale, Duskwood, and the Hinterlands.
Another popular spot would have to be the Steam Pool Resort to the southeast of the zone, although technically it isn’t part of Feralas; having its own Local Defence and General channel. It has a large lake at its base and smaller steaming hot pools found further up along the mountain side. This is the location of the phased Dormus summon, the result of picking up the right mysterious camel figurine for those after the Camel mount and achievement.
Interestingly enough, for those of you who were around in vanilla, three of these rares used to be one of three combatants in the Dire Maul Arena.
Last but not least is Prince Lakma. Notice that’s he’s level 87 with over 4M health so don’t go in thinking he’s an easy kill. He has 20 stacks of Lightning Shield too.
Those who completed the Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest line will remember the 62 elite, Lord Lakmaeran located on the Isle of Dread in Feralas. Back then you needed a group to kill him.
