Felwood is a corrupted forest filled with tainted creatures of the woods, demonic satyrs and infernals, rotting treants and ancients. It’s also home to one of two pure tribes of furbolgs left in the world — the Timbermaw. Recent events have introduced new Worgen/Goblin settlements and quests dealing with the deforestation of the Irontree Woods.
Olm is the only rare I had to put myself “At War” with before I could tame.
Desolace used to be a barren zone, filled with the skulls of ancient kodo bones, feuding centaur tribes and naga. Post-Shattering, fresh water has been able to flow into the area where the Cenarion Circle have begun to heal the land, starting with a lush central regrowth to the zone.
Azshara was taken over by the goblins post-Shattering. It used to be the night elves’ greatest centre before the Sundering, but was destroyed due to the reckless magic of the Highborne. Known for being a beautiful and tranquil autumnal zone pre-Shattering, the Goblins have marred the landscape with their pollution and quarries, carving the land into the shape of a Horde symbol.
Ashenvale is a beautiful forest and ancestral home of the Night Elves that has recently come under attack by the Horde. The capital city of Astranaar is under attack, as well as the forest from the Warsong Lumber Camp.
Eversong Woods is the starter zone for the Blood Elf race. It is a golden forest with typical high elf buildings. In the center of the map is a blighted strip known as the Dead Scar, a remnant from Arthas’ battle against the High Elves. Quests involve learning about the blood elves’ rich history, decadent lifestyle, and their struggles to keep the Dead Scar from growing.
Eversong Woods is also home to the capital city of the Blood Elves, Silvermoon City.
Ghostlands is a low-level zone focusing on the alliance between the Blood Elves and Forsaken in pushing back the Scourge’s presence. It is dark and shadowy with corruption throughout the land, culminating in Deathholme. It’s also the site of the ancient Amani troll empire, Zul’Aman and the low-level reputation hub of Tranquillien.
Azuremyst Isle is the zone the Draenei spaceship crashed into, leading to the formation of the Exodar as their capital city. Quests focus on the draenei acquainting themselves with the land and trying to strengthen their struggling settlements. Since this island was so far out, there was very little other civilization before the crash.
There are no rares in the zone but the closest thing would be the Blood Elf Bandit who has a chance to drop the Blood Elf Bandit Mask. To find out more, check out the post from Euphyely.
Bloodmyst Isle is a low-level zone covering the struggles of the Draenei to rebuild their civilization. It gets its distinctive red look from the corrupting red crystals found on the Exodar, the Draenei’s spaceship that crashed.
There is a special draenei-only questline on Bloodmyst Isle, which culminates in The Unwritten Prophecy and Tabard of the Hand.
