As Warcraft players assaulted the Dark Portal and quelled the initial advance of the Iron Horde we all caught a glimpse of Tanaan Jungle in the opening part of Warlords of Draenor. Now we get to go back. But it’s a different place now. “Deep within Tanaan Jungle, the manipulations of the warlock Gul’dan have twisted what remains of the Iron Horde into a sinister new form—an army of fel orcs brimming with demonic strength and insatiable bloodlust,” Blizzard said in their preview. “Now Gul’dan continues his machinations from inside the seemingly impenetrable Hellfire Citadel, plotting to open a portal for a massive invasion force.”
After building a shipyard players will be able to enter Tanaan and visit key locations throughout the zone like Ironhold Harbor where they will have to stop the Iron Horde’s reinforcements from making landfall. In the Ruins of Kra’nak they must stop Gul’dan’s Shadow Council from recruiting the arakkoa. The Temple of Sha’naar is home to the demon-summoning Sargerei and The Felforge is the heart of of production for Gul’dan’s Iron Horde, manufacturing of fel machinery. The Iron Front in the west is a massive battlefield and the Throne of Kil’jaeden is where you and your party will face elite creatures and attempt to stem the demonic tide. Zeth’gol is where you will take your assault into the capital of the Bleeding Hollow.
Well go into Hellfire Citadel in another article so stay tuned for more information on Warcraft patch 6.2 as it breaks, but for now take a fly by tour of Tanaan Jungle courtesy of this preview video.
