Related to Reign of Azshara Expansion Concept

Nazjatar is a zone located to in central Zin-Azshari, on the north edge of the Maelstrom. It is the greatest city of the naga, the heart of their empire. Queen Azshara rules from her palace here.

The zone is small compared to the others of Zin-Azshari, and is taken up completely by naga buildings. The largest is the Palace of Azshara itself, which overlooks the broken cliffs surrounding the ever-swirling Maelstrom.


Nazjatar was built after Azshara and her night elf highborne were transformed into the naga by the power of the Old Gods. It is a dark reflection of the former night elf capitol city - its layout and architectural style twisted mirrors of its fallen counterpart. For 10,000 years, Azshara has brooded within the mirrored halls of her palace, her hatred and lust for power growing.

During the Cataclysm, driven by the whispers of the Old God N'Zoth, Azshara sent her legions forth to capture Neptulon and his great elementium trident Nergalis, and in doing so seize control over the oceans of the world. With this power Azshara has crafted Zin-Azshari, her glory and dominion, and now he rules the naga from her palace. She waits for the whispers of her Old God master to guide her next, for the rising of Zin-Azshari was but the prelude to the rise of greater horror still...


The entirety of the region is covered in the sprawling spires and great cyclopean masonry of Nazjatar.Hideous monuments to Azshara and her Old Gods masters dominate every street and causeway, still dark with the mud of the ocean floor. From every structure swarm the naga and their war-beasts - snap dragons and coatl, dragon-turtles and war-hydra, serpent giants and mantaspawn and more.


After breaking through the naga's defenses in Darkcoil Chasm, the final battle of the war against Azshara begins. Horde and Alliance forces lay siege to the Palace of Azshara, fighting her naga legions in the causeways of Nazjatar. The city that was once underwater now drowns in a sea of blood.
