Lordamere Lake is one of the largest lakes in the Eastern Kingdoms, rivaled only by Darrowmere Lake to the east. Along with Darromwere, Lordamere has been marked by many events that took place around it. Here, many human Kingdoms, at the age of the Alliance of Lordaeron, that were prosperous, have been found around the lake's shores and nearby mountains, including Lordaeron, Dalaran and Alterac. Lordamere Lake was given its name from the nearby Capital City (or vice versa) of the Kingdom of Lordaeron which was built on its northern shores.
The lake, today, acts as a natural barrier between the Forsaken lands of Tirisfal Glades and Silverpine Forest and the contested lands of the Alterac Mountains. At its center is Fenris Isle, was taken over by agents of the Scourge, until they were removed by the Forsaken. Fenris Isle was later taken by human refugees as a safe haven from the Forsaken. East of Fenris Isle is a small group of islands called the Dawning Isles where the Vile Fin murlocs have made their claim and now overrun the islands.
