The continent of Azeroth[1] (also called continent of Stormwind[2]) is one of the three continents[3][4][5] (technically a subcontinent) that form the Eastern Kingdoms,[6] it lies to the south of Khaz Modan.[7]

Though Azeroth was held for some time by the Horde during the Second War, it has mostly been freed by the Alliance.[8] It contains both the region of Stormwind and Stormwind City[9] (capital of the region[10]), as well as the several surrounding territories. The entire continent is under the jurisdiction of the Stormwind (kingdom), it is unknown however if Stranglethorn Vale is part of the kingdom.

Azeroth's regions (WoW)

Other regions & domains (lore)

Azeroth at the time of the Second War.

As compiled in The Last Guardian, Lands of Conflict, World of Warcraft: The Roleplaying Game, Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, and Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. In Warcraft II, these areas were called domains while other sources called them regions.


Azeroth is in the southeast of the world of Azeroth.

  • The continents of Azeroth, Khaz Modan, and Lordaeron — as part of the larger Eastern Kingdoms continent — would technically be referred to as subcontinents in real world geographical/geological terminology. But the term isn't used in any published Warcraft source.
  • The Stormreaver clan section in the Warcraft II: Edition manual says: "Domain: Stormwind, Azeroth and Balor, Azeroth".[12] This may get a bit confusing, but it tells that the Stormreaver have control over the domain of Stormwind from the continent of Azeroth and Balor of the continent of Azeroth.
