Great Dark Outer Space Planets

The Great Dark

WorldMap-Cosmic

The "cosmic map" from World of Warcraft.

WorldMap-CosmicWithOutlandOnly

Cosmic map before alternate timeline Draenor.

The term planet (sometimes referred to as world) is a geographical category. Planets exist in the Great Dark Beyond, which is apparently the term for what we would call "outer space".

The term "world" generally refers to Azeroth itself, other worlds are generally referred to by their names in context to Azeroth.

In geographical hierarchy, worlds contain continents.

Unknown worlds Edit

Questionmark-medium This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials.*

Some worlds exist in the Warcraft universe that have not yet been named. Most often we know of their existence because of creatures coming from those worlds.

Countless other unnamed worlds have been visited by the titans, the naaru, and taken over or obliterated by the Burning Legion.

The draenei passed dozens of worlds and mapped much of the cosmos after they left Argus.

In-game worlds Edit

At least seven planets were said to be featured in future patches and/or expansions for World of Warcraft, courtesy of Outland's Dimensional Gateways.[12] In the end however, it appears this idea had been abandoned by the time The Burning Crusade expansion was released. Regardless, there are still a number of different worlds which can be reached in-game, some of which are reached via the same kind of dimensional gateways discussed several years ago.

Remains of worlds Edit

Placement Edit

In the novel The Last Guardian, the orcs are said to come from a planet (Draenor) on the far side of the Dark Beyond. The sky looked rusty due to the red sun there.[13] (LG 144) However, there is also evidence that Azeroth and Draenor may be in the same star system, as Azeroth can be seen from the courtyard of the Black Temple. It may be a portal or the like since Draenor may be completely in the Twisting Nether (which can be used to pass between points in the universe easily).[citation needed] In the World of Warcraft The Burning Crusade Official Strategy Guide, Azeroth is said to be the "closest habitable world" to Draenor.

Travel between worlds Edit

The only known means of traveling between worlds is through the use of magic, advanced technology, or through the Twisting Nether. These include:

See Teleportation.
