Hello there! We are conducting a survey to better understand the user experience in making a first edit. If you have ever made an edit on Gamepedia, please fill out the survey. Thank you!
The pictures presented don't really say anything. The settlements may have been there "always" they may be a "recent" thing, they may be located somewhere else, not in the rift, we basically know nothing. --Mordecay (talk) 23:04, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
- I'd say it has always been like that, but lets wait until the beta. Surely the Cataclysm has done something to the island like to Zandalar. We'll see if the shifting tectonic plates will be canon or not. --Ryon21 (talk) 23:29, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
This map isn't the shape of Kul Tiras. The file name of the texture was datamined before the announcement of the expansion and had Kul Tiras in it's file name (as the item's drop location). So it was part of speculation as Kul Tiras before the expansion announcement, but it could be a depiction of any random island so moved it to the talk page.

- It is clearly Kul Tiras, at least a first sketch of the island. You can clearly see Drustvar to the southwest. Some of the islands were not added but it has a very similar shape to the present and past drawings of Kul Tiras. --Ryon21 (talk) 09:25, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
- There's also the sound to the South, and it has the iconic shape of Kul Tiras (pear-shaped).
- Also, that map is related to the expansion, it's on the robes of the tidesage questing gear from Kul Tiras. -- MyMindWontQuiet 13:56, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
While Chronicle III supposedly changed the shape of the island retconning the Cataclysm damage, in the map, it looks somewhat "torn". Testers, is there any damage visible / do NPCs mention the Cataclysm, or is it really just rivers that have such shapes? --Mordecay (talk) 15:21, 26 May 2018 (UTC)
- As far as I know I haven't heard or read anything. The island that mentions damages is Zandalar. We may wait after the release and then we could say they have retconed the Cataclysm tectonic movement. --Ryon21 (talk) 15:54, 26 May 2018 (UTC)
Races in Kul Tiras
So the infobox mention that you can find dwarves, sauroks and hozens in Kul Tiras. Is that true? Because I can't find anything here about hozen or saurok tribes living on the island. There are some on island expeditions like the Un'gol Ruins though, which might be where the confusion came from. As for the dwarves it could be a relic of the RPG, or maybe from the Rexxar campaign with the units that count as dwarves I guess, but are there in BFA any dwarf NPCs on the island who didn't come recently from the continent? --Nith (talk) 12:21, 25 December 2018 (UTC)
- Go to Freehold in Tiragarde Sound (instanced and uninstanced) to find the hozen and saurok (essentially pirates). There is also a cave west of Anglepoint Wharf that I know for sure has saurok there, one being a rare (I do not remember the name). I don't particularly know about the dwarves however, someone else might. — Surafbrov 12:29, 25 December 2018 (UTC)
It sounds close both to Gorak Tul (Drust name) and to Lordaeron names referring to Tyr, as the Tiragarde Sound page mentions: Tiragarde Sound could be named after Tyr similarly to Tirisfal Glades. --KIROCHI) 19:11, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
