Netherstorm Zone in World of Warcraft, copyright Blizard Ent.

Netherstorm is a zone on the continent of Outlands in the World of Warcraft game. The zone has a wasteland environmental feel to it. . Netherstorm has quests for players leveled 67-70. The area is not controlled by either faction and has quests for both factions. There are 4 dungeons and raids located in this zone.

Netherstorm is the north easterly most zone on the Outlands continent. The zone is a collection of rocks that are connected by bridges. It is a dark and gloomy zone with no vegetation except in a few biospheres littered around the zone.

The main town is Area 52 which is populated primarily by goblins and gnomes. The name is a play on Area 51 which is the not-so-secret United States military research station in Nevada where U.F.O.s and aliens are said to be stored. The centrepiece of the city is a giant rocket which is being worked on but one that never takes off.

In addition to the biospheres, there are a number of Manaforges which Blood Elves controlling the area. The Blood Elves are hostile to even the Horde so its best to be careful there.

To the east is Tempest Keep, it is the spaceship that the Naaru used to bring the Draenei from their home world of Argus to Draenor. It is no longer flyable and is under the control of Kael'thas Sunstrider, a Blood Elf. Although it is a low level dungeon (70), it is still run by many players as the Ashes of Al'ar mount, a bright yellow bird drops.

In addition to the raid, there are three small spacecrafts which are dungeons. When the game first came out, it was only possible to get up to the dungeons if you had obtained the flight skill. You would have to be summoned by a Warlock if you didn't have it.

How to get to Netherstorm

There is no direct or easy way to the get to the zone, you would need to get to Shattrath City via a portal from a higher level city or a mage. From there, you would need to travel north, using either flight paths if you have them, run or fly with a mount yourself. It is a long way to run but you go north from the city.

In addition to travelling from Shattrath, you can go from the Dark Portal in Hellfire Peninsula. As you come out of the portal, you can use your own flight to fly directly north, ignoring the fatigue warning when you get it. If you don't have flight or the flight points, you will need to run and its a long way. Using your own flight will be the easiest as you can cut across the void, flight points will take you round the other zones.
