    This is most likely Sulfuron Spire in Hyjal. After checking both new maps the layout is similar. That is my prediction.

    It's hard to tell by the maps in my opinion. Alliance got half of Southern Barrens and looks to be the primary force in Stonetalon Mtns. I was looking at the very old "progression" map provided during Blizzcon and couldn't really tell where both sides quest in the same zone. Hopefully Ashenvale will be for both still as the few lonely Alliance questers allowed for some PvP moments that I remember on my Horde chars.

    Also a lot of Eastern Kingdoms hasn't been revealed.

    Re: Old World Changes

    I think the Sludgewerks in Stonetalon are most likely Goblin, not undead. There appears to be an oilrig there, as can also be seen on the maps of Kezan and the Lost Isles. It'd be awesome if they had made oilplatforms for more races, but I doubt it...

    Re: Old World Changes

    I'd love if someone could post new World Maps / Zone Maps, i know there are several on the Front Page, but not all.

    @nakorson im afraid those were the only ones available on Alpha.

    - There's a bridge going from Theramore Isle directly to the west, so there are 2 ways out of Theramore now.

    - Some islands west of Alcaz Island disappeared or made contact to the shore.

    Thanks, will update ASAP altho you are wrong about the smaller islands around Alcaz. I have the old and the new map infront of me. Only 1 small island has somewhat connected to the Mainland but nothing noteworthy.

    Re: Old World Changes

    I didn't see any mention of this released thus far but I have a few queries in need of confirmation:

    -Southshore is taken over by the Forsaken after the Alliance denizens flee during the Cataclysm

    -The Alliance take over Camp Taurajo in addition to reinforcing Bael Modan and Northwatch Hold.

    -The Draenei and the Night Elves complete Forest Song shortly after Ashenvale is destroyed by the Horde.

    -Rebel Camp is STV is destroyed during the Cataclysm. As a result, a wall is built on the STV/Duskwood Boarder to defend against encroaching Naga.

    -Westfall and Redridge get their long-needed backup from Stormwind. Lakeshire and Sentinel Hill are reinforced accordingly.

    -The Dwarves have set up a base camp in Southeastern Wetlands after the Cataclysm blows open Grim Batol.

    -Thrall appears as a Neutral NPC in Desolace alongside Cairne's Ghost/Spirit.

    -The Ebon Blade rebuild New Avalon/Havenshire, using it in tandem with the Argent Dawn as a base camp against the Scarlet Crusade and the lingering Scourge presence.

    -Anduin Wrynn (now a teenager) is now in Theramore on diplomatic relations regarding Stormwind's interests on Kalimdor.

    -Quel'Thalas has begun to heal itself and has now been given a graphical upgrade accordingly.

    -The Deeprun Tram has been expanded to include Gnomeregan after the Gnomes reclaim most of it.


    Remember: These are just what I heard in regards to changes. I need to know which are true and which aren't.


    ...Ok, time to change the ol' Sig ^_^

    This time I'll leave you the Links to 3 of my Wordpress Blogs: 1. Serene Adventure 2. Video Games 3. Anime Please subscribe if you like what you see. As a Bonus, I'll throw in my You Tube channel =D
