Classic WoW Wiki

The Wetlands is a large, wet zone below Stonewrought Dam and north of Loch Modan, covered with small rivers, lakes, and ponds. Bordered on three sides by mountains, the Wetlands are open to the ocean to the west. Adventurers seeking route to Wetlands must either come through Dun Algaz from Loch Modan or cross the Thandol Span from Arathi Highlands.

Getting there


From Hammerfall in the Arathi Highlands, run south/southwest to the bottom of the zone. Cross the ruined bridge.


From Ironforge run east towards Loch Modan take the road in the Loch north through Dun Algaz pass and into the Wetlands. Or, take the boat from Theramore (for night elves).


There are no instanced dungeons in the area. No battlegrounds exist in this area.
