The Gate of Unending Cycles

Thistleshrub Valley is an area thick with giant cacti (which are very unusually alive for Tanaris) and was also thick with desert-dwelling thistleshrubs until recently. Desert Blooms can now be found here, but only sparsely.

Budd's gang can be found in Thistleshrub Valley getting ready to lead the caravan into Uldum. Adarrah offers a quest, with a minimum level of 84.

During the Burning Legion's invasion, the area falls under the Legion's control.

In the RPG[]

Icon-RPG This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

One of the lowest spots in Tanaris, this area lies on the southwestern edge of the region, near the only easy access to Un'Goro. Massive cacti and other desert plants dominate the area, a possible indication of water under the surface. Sadly, the location's proximity to the Dunemaul ogres makes it unsuitable for Waterworks wells. Furthermore, elementals protect the area — these are creatures of living vines, attacking anything that comes near. Only the huge tortoises of the desert are immune to their ire.[1]

Patch changes[]

  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Mobs removed from area, and now a staging ground to get to the new zone Uldum
