- It is named after the Empire of Arathor.
- Due to its out-of-the-way location, seemingly unfitting name, and lack of features, it is likely the remnant of a planned larger subzone that was cut during development.
In early builds, the subzone was spread on larger chunks around other areas of Drustvar (especially on the northern side), but was always located on the mountains. Considering this, it is possible Arathor's Embrace was a concept name for the mountain range that bisects Drustvar in two.
- Patch 8.0.1 (2018-07-17): Added.
- Windward Ascent, a similar unused subzone.
