The Great Divide in-game

The Great Divide is a huge lava-filled chasm created by the Cataclysm. Created as a result of Deathwing's return, it sundered the Barrens in two and now serves as the dividing line between the Northern and Southern Barrens.

During the Blood War, the Horde installed goblin Azerite cannons on the northern shore of the Great Divide in order to counter the firepower of Northwatch Hold.[1]

Crossing

During the Cataclysm beta, the Great Divide was a no-fly zone and flying over it resulted in death. There was also no apparent way out of it.[2] This changed by the time Patch 4.0.3a went live, but the fate of those who venture into it without a flying mount remains the same. Those wishing to cross the Great Divide can travel to the border between the Northern Barrens, Southern Barrens and Stonetalon Mountains. Separate paths lead to the Alliance-controlled Honor's Stand and (via the High Road) Horde-controlled Hunter's Hill.

In Battle for Azeroth, additional means of crossing was added.

Trivia

  • Its name is a possible reference to the Great Divide, another large canyon and episode of the same name from the television show Avatar: The Last Airbender.
