Horde Don't Feel Left out!


After reading through the Operation Gnomeregan propogation about the Alliance(-only) planning to retake the Gnome home city in the upcoming expansion, I felt rather miffed, left-out, sad. Why do the Alliance get this cool new project to work on??..  I want the fun of reclaiming some lands for the brothers of my horde clan.

Then, I got over it and moved on. Blizzard doesn't play that game. They try their very hardest to balance the experience for both sides of the fence.
  • Alliance get Gnomeregan
  • Horde get Echo Isles
Now, if you don't play an Orc or Troll, you probably never saw the Echo Isles area. It consists series of islands at the very southern tip of Durotar (map). This was that group of quests that lead to the killing of Zalzane (Note: soon to be feat of strength), the evil witch doctor who took over this land.

Vol'jin's Darkspears settled in nearby Sen'jin Village, which they have since used as a staging point to attack Zalazane. Over the years, members of the Horde looking to test their worth have braved the Echo Isles to confront Zalazane, and many of them even returned victorious with his severed head. These victories, however, proved to be nothing more than an illusion created by the twisted witch doctor's dark magic. Days after these trophies were taken to Sen'jin Village, they reverted to their true forms: painted rocks and coconuts adorned with wooden tusks, or even the heads of Zalazane's enslaved trolls.

Trolls, unite! We, the horde shall help you retake your promised land.
