There is a lot to discover in World of Warcraft, after all the popular MMO has one of the largest game worlds ever. In recent years we have explored small islands and large continents in WoW, and even solved the mystery of the creation of the cosmos in Shadowlands. However, Azeroth still holds many mysteries just waiting to be revealed.
In order to bring the history of WoW closer to the players, Blizzard has been publishing books and novels with great regularity for years. With the book series “Streifzug durch Azeroth” the developers present the continents of Azeroth individually. In the first part of World of Warcraft: Rambling Azeroth: The Eastern Kingdoms Master Spy Mathias Shaw and Captain Finn Fairwind embark on a journey through the Eastern Kingdoms to chronicle stories and uncover all sorts of treasures. A few months later followed World of Warcraft: Rambling Azeroth: Kalimdor the second part of the series, in which we readers accompany the legendary Horde hero Rexxar and the Darkspear troll Zekhan on their foray through the dangerous wilderness of Kalimdor.
On to Northrend!
The third part of “Foray through Azeroth” is not long in coming! After the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor, Exploring Azeroth: Northrend takes you to the frozen north of Azeroth. The northern continent was the main focus of the story in Wrath of the Lich King, but also – for a brief moment – in WoW: Shadowlands. In the book, the dwarves of the Bronzebeard clan dare a journey across the northernmost continent of Azeroth to explore its secrets and mysteries. Frostwyrm Dragons and Icecrown Citadel grace the cover and the official description reads:
