The name "Aerie Peaks" itself is referenced multiple times through older sources:
- Day of the Dragon said that Wildhammer dwarves lived and rode wild gryphons there. The Aerie Peaks were described as a mountainous region beyond the elven realm of Quel'Thalas and being central to their culture.
- Warcraft III indicated in its manual that the Wildhammer gryphon riders had responded once again to the call and brought the mighty gryphons of the Aerie Peaks to aid the Alliance in its time of need.
- The non-canonical Alliance & Horde Compendium marked it as a distant region of Lordaeron, mountainous and cold.
This early concept map for World of Warcraft depicts the Aerie Peaks north of Thoradin's Wall.
