Eastern Kingdoms


it name implies, it is on the eastern hemisphere of the planet. It is two land masses joined by a concrete bridge between Arathi Highlands and Wetlands which is known as the Thandol Span. It houses the homes of the Dwarfs, Humans, Blood Elves and the Undead. The Alliance cities (Stormwind, Ironforge) are in the southern half of the continent with the north housing the Horde Cities of Undercity and Silvermoon. To the North of the main continent is Isle of Quel'Danas. There are a number of lands which can not be visited hence the reason why flying mounts are not usable in Eastern Kingdom or Kalimdor. At the base of the island is Booty Bay, a neutral area which is controlled by the non-aligned race of Goblins. At the very northern tip is the destroyed and rebuilt areas of Silvermoon, the Blood Elves capital.
