Postcards from Azeroth – Thunder Bluff

Heyo, everyone!

This time I am in Thunder Bluff, located in the far north of Mulgore, among the sprawling flatlands of the Golden Plains.

It comprises four towering buttes. The only access from the plains below is via elevators leading to the large central butte, which is connected to the others by large wooden bridges.

Thunder Bluff’s central hub is divided into three rises, and is surrounded by three additional buttes with distinct names. Right in the middle is a huge hollow pole, which holds a spiralling ramp giving access to each rise, as well as the flight master and quartermaster at the top.
