- The vrykul — giants who preceded the human race — were forged by the keepers, servants of the titans, to safeguard Azeroth's most valuable secrets. But the vrykul's purpose ended a long, long time ago. Many of their descendants traveled to the Broken Isles in hopes of rejoining their creators and passing into a glorious afterlife. Stormheim is the crux of that hope... and it has been betrayed.
Stormheim is a zone in the eastern area of the Broken Isles situated in the shadow of Highmountain to the west, and Suramar to the southwest. It's home to the mighty vrykul who left Northrend many ages ago in search of their holy land. Two titanic watchers here have warred with each other for thousands of years. The Halls of Valor and Helheim, the realms to which the vrykul journey when they die, are located in this zone.
Stormheim is an ancient land. A great number of vrykul monuments here create stunning vistas. Their towns and cities scattered over the rocky formations. Thousands of years of the ocean's brutality has carved the labyrinth like formations Stormheim bears today. The western portion, viridescent and dotted with pines sits on the base of Highmountain Peak; the mountain's waters carving out the Weeping Bluffs and flowing into Stonescar Gorge. The elevation descends drastically as you progress eastward and trees become more dense and fade into an amber shade. The Runewood, blankets Stormheim's eastern landmass. Do not be fooled though, the thicket is plagued by the hostile Bonespeakers, who utilize the wood for nefarious deeds.

- In Old Norse, "heim" means world or home. The name "Stormheim" would thus mean "home of storm." This would correspond to Thor's home of Asgard, the world of the Aesir tribe of gods in Norse mythology.
- The geographic assets for Stormheim are in a folder called "araknashal", hinting that the zone was renamed from the The Frozen Throne location. A statue called Nashal the Watcher exists, which lends its name to a few subzones in the surrounding area of Stormheim.
