Scuttle Coast

The Scuttle Coast [61, 52] is on the east coast of Durotar, looking out to the Great Sea. It is southeast of Razor Hill and north of Tiragarde Keep. The coast was littered with ships from Kul Tiras, smashed upon the rocks as a result of the great battles fought between the orcs and Admiral Daelin Proudmoore's fleet. During the Cataclysm, a large tidal wave swept the region, washing many of the sunken ships ashore. Angry sea elementals brought in by the tide now roam the beach, attacking those that come near.

The orcs are still salvaging bits and pieces of gnome technology from the stores of the ships, while trying to curb the presence of the sea elementals.

During the Fourth War, Alliance forces were sent to salvage the area.[1]


  • Zekhan speculates that all the smashed wood and leaking machines make the ocean sick.[2]
  • The quests H [1-30] Storming the Beaches, H [1-30] Shipwreck Searching, and H [1-30] Loss Reduction take place here.
  • In Tides of War, it is briefly mentioned that Scuttle Coast is "aptly named",[3] but it's not clear if the name is in reference to the large ships that were scuttled just off shore or to the crabs and makrura that scuttle along the shore.
