    West? The highborne sailed east to Tirisfal, but it was creepy and posessed so they moved north to Quelthalas.

    What's "enough" to me are these armchair critics holding it against Blizzard for not establishing every single aspect of the lore in this game from the beginning in stone, as if it's cheating to make something up as you go along with it. Oh no, Blizz didn't have every expansion planned out 18 years in advance!? /sarcasm

    This is not a global society as we know it. The world has not been fully explored and mapped. Only in the last decade was open contact established between the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor.

    It's not as if gnomes on gyrocopter's have made a Google Earth map of Azeroth. We travel mostly based on necessity, or as freebooting mercenaries, pirates, and explorers, and there is still plenty to be explored on Azeroth.

    People just love to point out perceived faults, but in this context you just come as a missing the point. A game like WOW is something you "play along with" in this context. There are certain rules you don't break if you don't want to insult the intelligence of the fans, like blatantly changing what was well known and established, but detailing new places on the planet we haven't been to isn't breaking that silent contract. We nerds do love our details, but in this case people are just wrong and making assumptions about the level of globalization this society has achieved in WOW.

    Not showing these places on a globe of the planet years before they came up with the idea is not the crime you guys make it out to be. It's just pedantry. Lighten up and play along.

    Hmmm....Veiled Sea..that's interesting. If the two seas have opposing currents their meeting point must be made up of whirlpools, unstab waves and waves slamming into each other constantly, which may explain why is dangerous to travel at this route.

    Now before you all gather up, take me to the town square and burn me alive, some proof...


    Unless you are all talking about some mass of undiscovered land somewhere on that "globe", wich seems doubtfull.
    Neither is there Pandaria if you haven't noticed already. Which by the way, wasn't hidden when that globe would have been created.

    How can Azeroth have lands on the other side when it only had one landmass. That one landmass spilt up into the four continents today (Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Northrend and Pandaria) as well as all the small islands and isle in between.
    Even if there is another side of Azeroth, which really is no surprise considering it's a planet, there is nothing there but ocean.

    And more underwater zones would be great.
    Vashj'ir was great!
    No, no more water zones. Fuck that idea, the whole zone of Vashj'ir was terrible. I leveled all 12 toons of mine in hyjal because of my hatred of being "underwater."

    I like how you criticise my opinion and tell everyone to accept yours. Sorry, Overlord Yig

    Pandaria is not represented on this globe simply cause it would spoil the players ...

    I have an explanation.
    It's a video game.

    Not being able to jump while questing goes against everything World of Warcraft is about.

    DO we even know that azeroth is a sphere-like planet?
    It might be flat, or just have one side. Yeah i know hard to envision, but well magic and stuff made it fly.

    I am not much into lore, so my question might come off stupid.

    I would prefer to see whats under Azeroth, including a return to the Spider Kingdom and Undermine (which I picture as a giant underground, goblin version of New York City).

    Another side to Azeroth is plausible because no one has ever returned and also why can't the world be so big that it needs two maps?

    In the wow WIKI the lore states that no one knows what's over there, but it's dangerous. I really think it's a blank slate with plenty of potential to create new lore/races/continents. I think they should start out leaving clues in archeology fragments and have an exploration go out from both horde and alliance to race to discover the new land.

    Guarantee that's to come. Usually with each expansion we get a bunch of hints on the next expansion, but since we're balls deep in legion alarms, it may not be for a while.
    Also: a reason to do Archaeology!

    Maybe they've got one guy working on it in the Blizzard HQ basement and he's spent those 5 years making more swirly green grass and floating trees.
    Then it's released and all 9 million subscribers stumble around in a green fog for two years.
    I'd buy that.
