Terokkar Forest after Talador became corrupted.

Terokkar Forest is a zone in Outland located east of Nagrand, west of Shadowmoon Valley, southeast of Zangarmarsh, and southwest of Hellfire Peninsula. This forest was most likely named after Terokk, the greatest king in arakkoa history. Formerly it was known as Talador.

Terokkar was seen as the Bone Wastes in previous maps and lore sources, but the Bone Wastes themselves are now a sub-region within the Terokkar Forest zone (in fact probably not the same Bone Wastes, as the current one was created only two years ago, according to ingame lore).

History

Once known as Talador, the region was a forest of red and orange leaved trees that bathed the entire area in a perpetual autumn hue. These beautiful olemba trees, and the draenei's equally impressive gardens surrounded the draenei's greatest city on Draenor; Shattrath. A splendorous monument to the skills of the draenei artificers, even in exile, the city's greatness was matched by that of the holy mausoleum Auchindoun; the place where all draenei souls prepared for their journey into the afterlife and where many of their bodies were laid to rest. The smaller city, Tuurem, was just as noteworthy as its more magnificent neighbours as it sat at a crossroads in the area and one seeking to travel from Shattrath to Karabor would likely pass through the city.

When the Orcish Horde rampaged across Draenor, Talador was rendered the draenei's final stronghold. The Orcish Horde were repelled from Talador for a time, but when they imbibed the Blood of Mannoroth the demonic fury they were granted gave them the power they needed to cut through to the city of Shattrath itself. Their fel magic corrupted the region, turning the red and orange trees a pale, dusky green that transformed the forest into a dark, eerie woodland. The siege of Shattrath ultimately left the city in ruins and the draenei scattered, and presumed extinct by the orcs and their Burning Legion masters.

Once the majority of the Orcish Horde departed for Azeroth, Talador came under the dominion of the Arakkoa Outcasts and was renamed Terokkar in honour of their lost king. At a later point the orcs who had conquered Auchindoun performed a ritual that destroyed the building and much of the surrounding area, creating the Bone Wastes (though there's inconsistency as to when and/or how many rituals created this area).

Geography

The flora consists of mostly dark green forest vegetation of crystal pines known as olemba trees. Shattrath City lies in the northwestern portion of zone. Alliance and Horde each have a town.

The multi-winged instance Auchindoun can be found in this zone, containing four separate 5-man dungeons. There are no raid dungeons, micro dungeons, battlegrounds, or arenas in this zone. The spirit towers of the Bone Wastes provide a world PvP opportunity.

Every so often you can hear a roar while near Auchindoun - this is Teribus the Cursed, flying in circles around Auchindoun.
