Bladefist Bay is a portion of the Great Sea off the eastern coast of central Kalimdor. It is on the northeastern coast of Durotar around Skull Rock, and the southern coast of Azshara can be seen to the north. The bay can be easily reached from Orgrimmar by taking the road east out of the front gate, past the Dranosh'ar Blockade.
It is named after Kargath Bladefist, the former chieftain of the Shattered Hand clan. Ships coming from the Great Sea dock at this place, and the port is built up with wood and steel. Bladefist Bay has been called "the Great Sea's midden heap", since rubble from the sea frequently washes in on the tide.
After the War against the Lich King, a small port was built to serve as a quick means for ships to travel to Orgrimmar. A goblin yacht, used to escape the Lost Isles, can be found docked here. This is also where the mercenary vessel traveling to Vashj'ir comes into port, during . Several Dranosh'ar Fishermen cast their lines off the pier.
To prepare for a potential naval invasion, Garrosh Hellscream and his forces Kor'kron and Dragonmaw fortified the bay. During the Siege of Orgrimmar, Alliance and Horde fleets led by Varian Wrynn and Lor'themar Theron seized the bay and fought their way to the gates of the city.
The fleet to attack the Broken Shore sailed from here.
