Azshara is located in northeastern Kalimdor, east of Ashenvale, south of Winterspring, and north of Durotar. It is a beautiful coastal area cloaked in eternal autumn. The trees and other flora are tinged in brilliant oranges and reds, and nearer the coast, great cliffs and sandy beaches line the ocean. The region’s inhabitants can make life hard for the nature lover, however. Enraged ghosts, vicious satyr, stalking naga and ferocious wildlife can quickly put an end to those who venture too far from the road.

Even further inland they appear to have befriended the furbolgs at the new Blackmaw Hold, and even taken over what was formerly known as the Thalassian Base Camp, now called the Darnassian Base Camp. Gnomes have also taken the stretch of beach at the Ruined Reaches.

The Blue dragonflight seems to have vanished from the land, abandoning Lake Mennar. Members of the Black dragonflight have taken hold of some northern reaches, including the Bitter Reaches. They are hunting for remnants of the blue dragons, Deathwing believing that the dragonflight has weakened since the death of Malygos.
