In the continent of Northrend, the setting of World of Warcraft's newest expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, there is an area that is so desolate and so forbidding that no one really considers it an important part of Northrend. I'm talking about the Borean Tundra, one of the two entry points to Northrend in the new expansion. If before, the Borean Tundra was one of Northrend's most neglected areas, it now plays a more useful role, as it will be the site which players with levels of 68 to 72 will first see as they enter Northrend. Preparing yourself for any event in the Wrath of the Lich King Borean Tundra zone will surely put you a step above other players.
Below are some important facts about the Borean Tundra that you should know.
The Borean Tundra is a frozen wasteland located at Northrend's western tip. The area is dominated by a proud race of Walrus-men known as Tuskarrs. However, you can expect to meet a lot of other creatures in the Wrath of the Lich King Borean Tundra zone, such as Nagas, trolls, and even blue dragons.
In its far reaches, there are also Undead Scourge. Thus, it is best to be cautious once you arrive at the Borean Tundra. There's no telling if you might meet an enemy or a foe. Also, there are no cities in the Borean Tundra, only a scattering of Tuskarr villages, and Drakkari dwellings. You would have to explore this land of ice to find things that you might need.
The Borean Tundra's Past and Present:
The first dwellers of this frozen land were the nerubians.
There are some ruins in the land that show Nerubian markings. The Tuskarrs then inhabited the Wrath of the Lich King Borean Tundra zone, and they have remained there ever since. The Drakkari then followed and then the Undead, but most of these creatures do not really “reside" in the Borean Tundra.
Drakkari, for example, are few and travel mostly alone or in small groups, with their main agenda, that to attack the Tuskarr holdings. Thus, we cannot say that Drakkari are true races in the Borean Tundra.
In the new expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, a new settlement has been made in the Borean Tundra named Warsong Hold. The Horde claims the settlement as their own.
If you ally yourself with the Horde in the Borean Tundra, you might find yourself embroiled in quests related to the Tuskarr race. This is because the Horde has formed a pact with the Tuskarr to help them fight against the Naga. A lost creature has also been rumored to be found in the Wrath of the Lich King Borean Tundra.
Known as the Taunka, they come from the powerful Tauren race.
Once you get to the Borean Tundra, don't expect things to be as peaceful as the somewhat calming environment of the land of ice. There will be a lot of quests and opportunities for gaining experience in the land. So keep an eye out for trouble and choose your fights wisely while you are in the Wrath of the Lich King Borean Tundra!
Do you want to always be one step ahead of everyone else in Wrath of the Lich King, and not be left behind?
