Northwestern Lordaeron

Tirisfal Glades at night.

On the northern coast of Lordaeron lies the eerie Tirisfal Glades. The unofficial kingdom to the Forsaken,[1] servants of the Banshee Queen Sylvanas Windrunner, the wooded hills are seeped through with the curse of the Lich King's plague. The sky over Tirisfal is eternally gloomy and tinted a blighted green, and the trees and other flora desperately cling to their last shreds of life.

Although tainted and melancholy, Tirisfal still very much has its own unique, haunting beauty, particularly in such areas as the stony North Coast, the village of Brill, and the deep atmosphere of the ruined Agamand Mills.

Tirisfal Glades is home not only to the Forsaken, but to their enemies as well. The Scarlet Crusade has several outposts here, including the seat of their religious faith, the Scarlet Monastery. The minions of the Scourge are also ever present, tainting the derelict farmsteads and dilapidated mills with their foul presence.

Geography

The instanced, winged dungeon the Scarlet Monastery can be found in the Tirisfal Glades. There are no other dungeons or battlegrounds in the area.

The western end of Tirisfal contains a large inaccessible area. There is a path leading to the area accessed via small lake in the northwest by the coast, past the Solliden Farmstead. The path is currently blocked by large rocks. It is possible to venture into this area by some minimal climbing on the north end; however the mass is barren with few hill and cliff-like features.

Places to stay

  • Undercity
    • As a racial capital, the Undercity offers a full range of amenities for travelers.
  • Brill
    • This quaint little town offers the recent dead a place of rest and respite from the horrors of Tirsifal. Be sure to check out the Gallows' End Tavern while in town.
  • Bulwark
    • Though possessing limited supplies, the Argent Dawn and Forsaken forces at the Bulwark do offer members of the Horde a place to repair armor.
