Location Eastern Azeroth

The Eastern Kingdoms (occasionally called Azeroth[1][2][3][4][5][6][7] or the Old World[8]) are the eastern continents on the world of Azeroth.[9] The Eastern Kingdoms is made up from a group of smaller continents (Azeroth, Khaz Modan and Lordaeron) formed from the original continent of Kalimdor following the Great Sundering. The Eastern Kingdoms lie to the east of the Great Sea and to the west of the Forbidding Sea. The central part of the Eastern Kingdoms is dominated by the mountains of Khaz Modan and the Redridge Mountains. Both cover several zones. The Eastern Kingdom's western counterpart is the continent of Kalimdor.

The Eastern Kingdoms include the three continents of Lordaeron,[10] Khaz Modan,[11] and Azeroth.[12] After the Shattering, a large expanse of the underwater 'continent' was discovered, known as Vashj'ir. The Eastern Kingdoms are the homes of the undead, dwarves, gnomes, blood elves, humans, worgen, and the few remaining high elves.


In-game map of the Eastern Kingdoms.



The Eastern Kingdoms is divided into three and sometimes four continents:

A map on the Blizzard web site and the Warcraft RPG shows that the Eastern Kingdoms are divided into three continents. Quel'Thalas seems to make up a fourth continent in some maps but most of the time it appears that the Eastern Kingdoms are divided into only three continents as Quel'Thalas is shown as part of northern Lordaeron.


The Eastern Kingdoms is further divided into the following regions:
