The continent of Azeroth[1] is one of the three continents[2][3][4] that form the Eastern Kingdoms,[5] it lies to the south of Khaz Modan.[6]

Though Azeroth was held for some time by the Horde during the Second War, it has mostly been freed by the Alliance.[7] It contains both the region of Stormwind and Stormwind City[8] (capital of the region[9]), as well as the several surrounding territories.

Notes

  • The continents of Azeroth, Khaz Modan, and Lordaeron — as part of the larger Eastern Kingdoms continent — would technically be referred to as subcontinents in real world geographical/geological terminology. But the term isn't used in any published Warcraft source.
  • The Stormreaver clan section in the Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness manual says: "Domain: Stormwind, Azeroth and Balor, Azeroth".[10] This may get a bit confusing, but it tells that the Stormreaver have control over the domain of Stormwind from the continent of Azeroth and Balor of the continent of Azeroth.
  • It is also called "continent of Stormwind" in the Warcraft RPG.[13]
