The Zoram Strand

The Zoram Strand is a stretch of beach in the northwest corner of Ashenvale. While the Horde have set up a minor outpost (Zoram'gar Outpost) in the Zoram Strand, the area has fallen to the naga. The dark creatures have taken up residence, evident in their numbers and in the shipwrecks and beached sea creatures along the shore.

Near the area there was originally a night elven town called Zoram but is long destroyed and submerged beneath the seas.[1]

The Zoram Strand is also the site of the Blackfathom Deeps instance. The Deeps was once a great night elf temple, but now lies in ruins from the sundering. The naga have also made their home in the Deeps, as well as the Twilight's Hammer cult who are seeking the power of the chaotic Old Gods.

During the Midsummer Fire Festival, two quests take place in the Zoram Strand involving the Twilight Cult's plan to summon Lord Ahune into the world to battle Ragnaros. Two camps of Cultists spawn, one due south of the Blackfathom entrance, the other on the beach northwest of there.

During War of the Thorns, the coast was taken by the Horde and fought against the Alliance here.[2]

Prior to the Battle for Darkshore.

Later when Tyrande Whisperwind arrived here to reclaim Darkshore, she killed the naga and beasts inhabiting the northern part of the coast, along with a small Horde camp containing grunts and a demolisher. Veiled Deathstalkers remained in the area in case Tyrande returned. Alliance adventurers were sent here by Shandris Feathermoon and Maiev Shadowsong to kill the Forsaken and reclaim Tyrande's belongings.
