The Hanging Tower of Naz'Zuraq


High above the blighted marshlands of the Spidermire is the imposing Hanging Tower of Naz'Zuraq, a triumph of nerubian architecture. The tower itself is not actually founded on the swampy ground of the Spidermire, but hangs down from the cavern ceiling, an immense salactice that has been hollowed, carved, and embellished by nerubian artisans. Hanging spires and exterior balconies surround the mighty central spire of the tower, overlooking the boglands far below. An intricate walkway spun from crystalized webbing allows entry to the tip of the tower from the surface.

The Tower of Naz'Zuraq was an ancient center of learning for nerubian mystics, who traveled from all over the Spider Kingdom to meet with the elder sages there. The tower was ravaged by the Scourge and its necromancers, and in the years since the fall of Azjol-Nerub has been occupied by the arach'layn. Their mighty mage-lord, Prince Luth'rahn of the Darkholt, holds court here - he is a powerful spell-caster who has walked the world since the War of the Ancients, over 10,000 years ago.


The Hanging Tower lies at the heart of Shadow Web Forest, in south-western Shadow Web Caverns.
