How to get to Waking Shores – WoW Dragonflight

Dragon Isles Zones

Four of them are leveling zones, while the fifth, the Forbidden Reach, is the starting zone for dracthyr evokers. Players have to go through the zones in order, starting in the Reach/Shores, and ending in Thaldraszus. The progression is vertical, with the Shores being located at the base of the Isles, while Thaldraszus is located at its apex. The expansion’s storyline runs through each of the zones sequentially. Exploration within the zones themselves, however, is comparatively non-linear.

The Waking Shores are a zone on the Dragon Isles and the ancestral home of the red and black dragonflights. A wild, untamed land rife with elemental magic, the Waking Shores are the first zone that players see when they arrive to the Isles with a joint Explorers’ League-Reliquary expedition. In the zone there are gorlocs and trolls.

The zone storyline sees Alexstrasza summoning the Alliance and Horde to aid the red flight against the native Djaradin, while Wrathion seeks to reclaim the Obsidian Citadel of the black flight from enemy hands and come to terms with the state of his ruined flight.

The Waking Shores fell dormant after the dragonflights left their homeland ten thousand years ago. Now, with Azeroth’s world-soul revitalized, the awesome primal might of the Shores stirs anew, rousing the dragons’ ancient allies and age-old enemies from their long millennia of slumber. This land is stirring with the reawakening of elemental energies. Long ago, the elements were present in their most primal, unfettered form; however, the resurgence of magic in the Dragon Isles has caused that energy to reawaken.

Geysers and hot springs are commonplace, and powerful streams and rivers carve grottoes into the colorful rocks and sediment. Waterways feed into the land’s heart and the Life Pools of the red dragonflight. While millennia ago this area was populated with dragon architecture like the rest of the Broodlands, most of those structures have long since fallen into decay and become overgrown.

Volcanic areas are alive with molten earth and fire. As the elevation rises, the land becomes harsher. In these imposing mountains, Neltharus, the Obsidian Citadel was built by the black dragonflight so that the Earth-Warder could defend the Broodlands. Abandoned long ago, the imposing fortress has now been claimed by the djaradin.
