Blizzard has published an official preview of Zuldazar, the majestic land of the Zandalari Trolls.
The heart of the troll empire, Zandalar is known as Azeroth’s cradle of life.
There are three main territories in this region: The lush jungle of Zuldazar, the dank marshland of Nazmir and the storm-scorched desert of Vol’dun. Read on this article, mmogah.com will take you on a brief tour of the first of these areas: Zuldazar.
This zone is quite extensive, featuring breathtaking views, many dinosaurs and temples devoted to the loa.
Zuldazar is the massive capital city of the Zandalari Empire and all troll tribes of Azeroth. It is located on Zandalar in the middle of the Great Sea. It is built in a series of giant ziggurats that look like a towering mountain from a distance. Zuldazar is the seat of King Rastakhan and hosts a gathering of all the troll tribes every six years.
Different troll tribes distrust one another and fight each other, but envoys from all the troll tribes arrive at Zuldazar every six years to share information and discuss matters that may affect the entire troll race. It is the oldest city on Azeroth still standing.
Zuldazar includes standard troll architecture: It features a winding, tiered structure of walls and buildings. Thousands of cannibalistic jungle trolls inhabit these ziggurats.
Join us on a brief tour through the oldest city in the world and the majestic land that surrounds it, and get a glimpse of the flora and fauna that dwell in this ancient domain.
High above the jungle canopies, the Golden Throne serves as Zuldazar’s city center, with some of the most breathtaking views in the region. It is from here that Rastakhan, king of the Zandalari, rules.
You can find anything you need for an extended stay in the heart of Dazar’alor at the center of the city. Facilities include an inn, portals to all major Horde cities along with Dalaran, profession trainers, a bank, training dummies, vendors and more. It’s easy to get lost this ancient, multileveled city, but that only emphasizes its vastness and grandeur.
Take a ride on a Caravan Brutosaur! Trained to haul goods throughout Zuldazar, Brutosaurs offer a slow but steady ride around the city’s terraces.
In the southern part of city - its lowest point, you’ll find the expansive Port of Zandalar. It is the Zandalari berth their mighty fleet and traders from around Azeroth sell their wares and services.
For those of sufficient might (level 115) and have completed an introductory quest, Captain Rez’okun will facilitate access to Island Expeditions from the Expedition Map.
The savage surroundings
Zandalar’s rich tapestry of flora and fauna deserve research. The Zandalari has shown it to be able beast masters, having domesticated many creatures that roam the land. Some of these serve as helpful allies to the Zandalari, others prove obstacles to those who would seek to exploit the jungle’s resources.
Tortollan Knowledge is power
You’ll encounter a new race: the tortollan, no matter you are inside the city or beyond its borders. The ancient seekers are constantly in pursuit of knowledge and rare artifacts’ acquisition. They’re always in need of brave souls to help them acquire what they seek.
Where kings lie
If you follow the Golden Road from the city and up into the mountains to the west, you’ll eventually reach Atal’Dazar. These ancient pyramids have served as the resting place for Zandalari kings for millennia. With each passing ruler, new rooms are constructed to house the deceased’s vast wealth.
A vast coastline surrounds Zuldazar to the south, east, and west, offering bountiful opportunities for fishing, boating, swimming and treasure hunting. To the north, the marshland of Nazmir awaits exploration, offering plenty of opportunities to earn your way into the good graces of the Zandalari.
