Balor was a domain of the Kingdom of Azeroth to the west of Stormwind. It was taken by the Old Horde during the First War and held by the Stormreaver clan during the Second War. Its current fate is unknown.
Notes and trivia
- Balor is not currently accessible in World of Warcraft and does not appear on most recent maps, including those of Chronicle because Blizzard didn't want to nail down its definitive location yet. Previously, Balor was originally depicted as being close to both Azeroth and the Tomb of Sargeras, but since Legion the location of the Broken Isles was heavily changed.
- Balor was shown on early concept maps for World of Warcraft, so it was at least in planning at one time.
- The island is possibly named after Balor, the king of a race of giants (the fomorians) from Irish mythology. Upon listening to a prophecy of his grandson killing him, Balor locked his only daughter in a tower to ensure that she may never mate.
