  • The Tempest's Roar was only accessible by using a level 100 boost on an Horde character. It serves as a tutorial zone, and the scenario teaches the adventurer about his main combat skills, such as area-of-effect attacks, stunning opponents, battling several foes at the same time, etc. Once the combat training is over, the player is then being sent to the B [10-45] The Battle for Broken Shore scenario.
  • While being on the Tempest's Roar, the zone name is actually shown as the Great Sea. A way to know the name of the gunship is to talk on the General Chat, which will display its name, or to have a friend on it, and then the name of the gunship will be shown as the location in the UI.
  • Dalaran and Acherus: The Ebon Hold can be seen in the distance, however, the cities were not at the Broken Isles at that point.
  • Compared to its Alliance equivalent, the Sword of Dawn, this gunship also transported experimented soldiers.
