Lumber (War3) Azeroth World Map

While you guys wait on the rest of the SoL content, I thought I would show you this map I created for the site.



Edit: ZOMG it's updated!

Cool; though I'm not sure why you labled Ashenvale, the Barrens, Un'goro and Sithilus but none of the other zones.

I couldn't name everything otherwise it would have been too cluttered. They will all be named on the map section (after you click a continent you will get a bigger map of that continent). I just picked some of the more significant areas.

I'd suggest instead of doing that; just list all the major settlements and outposts. (Like Nighthaven or places like Razorfen Downs)

Yeah, that'd be the best way to do it.

When I say updating, I mean a lot. Most of the Islands are mislabeled (this is their fault, they labeled them wrong in other maps )

While not as global as Warlock's map, another one to look at that's a bit more detailed is: http://www.kaldorei.com/worldmap/

Some quick corrections for you until I do them:

Kazan becomes Tel Abim
Undermine becomes Kezan (yes!)
Hiji becomes Plunder Isle
Balor becomes Zandalar

And westfall isn't an island. that's a river.

I was wondering where the Zandalar came from originally. But seeing that they're so close to the Maelstrom, it wouldn't surprise me if they are currently at war with the Naga, or other unholy entities that have spawned from there.

I also find it surprising that the island itself remained afloat after the sundering (seeing as how it's so close to the focal point of the catclysmic event), and even more surprising that the Zandalar were able to hold that piece of land (and its surrounding areas, pre-sundering) against the Night Elves, who also spawned their civilization near the Old well of Eternity/Maelstrom.

Of course, by then the Night elves likely had to contend with the other tribes/species that had splintered off from the grandfather tribe.

Man, I can't wait to learn more Troll lore. I hope they make a novel series about their history. And more stuff on the Tauren too.

I was watching my sister play and she was turning in things from a ZG run and she got some item and the troll said this was a remenant from the old empire when the Zandalar lived on the island that Undermine is on he also said that they had a war with the goblins for it. I may have read it wrong but I think thats what he said.

Im all for the Tauren lore, but are there any offshoots of them? Like the trolls have X amount of races, the NE's ave HE/BE Satyrs and NAga. And apparnetly Tauren are one of the most ancient races....

While they are one of the most ancient of races, they are one of the newest "Race groups" to be added to the system. In fact going by the major races or race groups, Tauren are the most recently added.

Humans: WC1
Dwarven racial family (may include Gnomes...): WC2, expanded in WoW
Elven racial family: WC2, expanded in WC3 and WC3x
Orcs: WC1
Troll racial family: WC2, expanded in WC3 and WoW
Ogres: WC1
Goblins: WC2
Tauren: WC3

So honestly, it doesn't seem too surprising to me that Tauren don't have any offshoots, since they are one of the newest races designed, and are still, to a degree, being fleshed out.

Kaziel raises a good point. It also must be noted that the Troll and Night elf offshoots are basically minor varations of their respective original forms (One of the main differences being skin colours, either brought on by evolutionary or magical means). The only exception are the Satyr and Naga, who were both magiically warped by their dark masters (Sargeras and the Old Gods, respectively).

As for the Tauren, we could eventually stumble across an offshoot of their kind, but it would have to be a change on par with that of the Naga and/or Satyr. Simply put, while a tan/brown troll is a Desert troll, and green one is a Forest troll, a Tauren of a different skin tone is still Tauren.

Hope that last part made sense.
