The Eastern Kingdoms (a few times called Azeroth) is the eastern continent of Azeroth. The Eastern Kingdoms is made up from a group of smaller continents (AzerothKhaz Modan, and Lordaeron) formed from the original continent of Kalimdor following the Great Sundering. The Eastern Kingdoms lies to the east of the Great Sea and to the west of the Forbidding Sea. The central part of Eastern Kingdoms is dominated by the Khaz Mountains and the Redridge Mountains. Both cover several zones. The Eastern Kingdom's western counterpart is the continent of Kalimdor.

The Eastern Kingdoms include the three continents of LordaeronKhaz Modan, and Azeroth. The Eastern Kingdoms is the home to the each of these races'. UndeadDwarfBlood ElvesHumansWorgen, and a few remaining High Elves.

Quel'thalas seems to make up a fourth continent in some maps. Most of the time, it appears that the Eastern Kingdoms are divided into only three continents, as Quel'thalas is shown as part of northern Lordaeron.

Geography.Edit

Eastern Kingdoms is actually considered to be the three subcontinentsLordaeron in the north, Khaz Modan in the middle, and Azeroth (the continent) in the south. It has a variety of climates like Kalimdor, but has more zones that show damage from humanoid intervention. The Alliance dominates the central and southern parts of the continent (With the exception of Stranglethorn Vale). However, the north is the stronghold of the Forsaken and regions scarred by the Scourge.

Unlike Kalimdor, the Eastern Kingdoms have very few desert areas (Except maybe the Badlands), but several areas are wastelands (The Blasted LandsBurning SteppesDeadwind Pass, and Searing Gorge). It has a few more specifically swampy areas like the Swamp of Sorrows and the Wetlands, but temperate forests and hills proliferate. For some reason the mountainous areas surrounding Ironforge appear to be perpetually snowy, while most other regions are temperate warmer.
