Wow Uldum

Uldum (pronounced: /uːl'duːm/) (also known as "the Land of the Titans") is an ancient desert located on the southern coast of Kalimdor, surrounded by Un'Goro Crater in the north, the Tanaris Desert in the east, and Silithus in the northwest.

Geography

The landscape of Uldum is predominately desert, with a large river giving life to an oasis in the center of the region. The oasis offers much to the native inhabitants, tol'vir and beast alike. The Ramkahen have populated much of the northern half: their capital city rests here, as does their trade center, training grounds, and several fruit and crop fields. Further down the river, past the Vir'naal Dam, the Neferset have seized control of the Lost City of the Tol'vir, as well as the Gate of Hamatep near the Vir'naal River Delta. Much of the remainder of Uldum is wind-swept desert, dunes swallowing many of the old tombs and ruins. |Al'Akir's air elemental minions, under the direction of Deathwing, have wreaked havoc against those that would stand against him, using their wind powers to bury his detractors in deep sands. The eastern shores contain the vast majority of the tombs, now being plundered by Neferset and cursed gnomes, and further away from the waters lies the Titan complex known as the Halls of Origination. To the southwest lies Schnottz's encampment where his workers scramble to unearth more artifacts. The northwestern part is the location of the Obelisk of the Stars and The Gate of Unending Cycles connecting the region with Tanaris desert. The Cataclysm also brought the Skywall towers into Uldum that serve as an entrance to the Al'Akir's domain, structures floating high in the air off the southern coast of Uldum, supported by nothing but magic and clouds.

How to get to Uldum

Players can enter Uldum by foot through the Gate of Unending Cycles[68.5, 22.5], connected to Tanaris by Thistleshrub Valley[29.9, 65.7]. Most players will reach this area and enter via cutscene during the Easy Money quest.

Mysteries In The Sands

I'm not a prophet; I'm just a gnome who trusts her gut. After the first small tremors started shaking Azeroth, my instincts told me that something even bigger was on its way. Unfortunately, no one else in Gadgetzan shared my healthy paranoia of the coming apocalypse. The old codgers in the just snickered behind my back when I decided to live in the skies over Tanarisaboard my trusty frying machine, only coming down for food and fuel when absolutely necessary. When the "big one" finally hit as I'd predicted, they weren't laughing anymore.

As the dunes around Gadgetzan rose and fell in the waves, all those skeptics were crying like babies while I was safe and sound high in the sky. But I didn't expect what happened next: just over the mountains in southern Tanaris, land appeared out of thin air. Not just land, but some kind of civilization with towering obelisks and pyramids covered in strange symbols. A thought ran through my head that this might be the legendary region of Uldum. I wrote the idea off as harebrained until dozen of would-be adventurers started showing up in Gadgetzan, whispering Uldum's name and babbling on about treasure hoards hidden with the area.

With all these fresh faces around, I've been making a fortune selling aerial tours over the mountains near Uldum. More importantly, those disbelievers who treated me like a nut before the quake hit have begun show me the respect I deserve. If they keep it up, I might just offer them one of my tours...maybe even at a discount!
