Atal'Dazar (pronounced "AH-tahl-DUH-zawr")[1] is a series of royal and ancient pyramids[2] secluded high atop Mount Mugamba. It is named after King Dazar, first king of the trolls. For millennia, the Zandalari kings and queens were laid to rest within the tombs of Atal'Dazar. These pyramids grew more elaborate with each passing ruler, as new rooms were constructed to house the deceased's vast wealth. Now, these once pristine halls have been corrupted by the Prophet Zul and his trusted lieutenant, Yazma, who seek to twist the power of these ancient kings for their own dark machinations.[3]

It is the location of two dungeons in World of Warcraft, the Atal'Dazar and the Kings' Rest instances.

Notes

  • A quest refers to Atal'Dazar as the City of Gold,[4] which is likely an oversight as this name is supposed to refer to Zuldazar.

Atal'Dazar in Zandali would likely mean "devoted to Dazar".
