Mount Neverest is located in Kun-Lai Summit on the Pandaria continent, and is the highest mountain in all of Azeroth. The exact height is unknown, but flying in from the ocean gives a great sense of just how high above sea level it is. To access the Neverest Pinnacle (the summit of the mountain), you can follow a path marked with flags and rope starting on the north-eastern side of the mountain. The path takes you past snowy boulders and icy vortices before opening up to a small base camp called Seeker’s Point.

The Twin Colossals are massive mountain spires located in north-western Feralas on the Kalimdor continent. Unfortunately, not much is known about the spires themselves or where they came from. At the base of the western spire, a night elf named Marli Wishrunner suggests the spires have existed since ancient times. She also used to be the only way to gain access to the top of the eastern spire in classic World of Warcraft, before flying was introduced to the world.

The Valley of Kings is situated in Loch Modan on the Eastern Kingdoms continent, along the path to Searing Gorge. Hundreds of years ago, during the War of the Three Hammers, the Valley was the location which the Dark Iron dwarf clan marched through in an attempt to take control of Ironforge from Madoran Bronzebeard and the Bronzebeard clan. The specifics aren’t known, but the Dark Iron dwarves never took Ironforge and were forced to retreat back through the Valley. They had also launched a parallel attack against Khardros Wildhammer and the Wildhammer clan in Grim Batol, and while it was marginally more successful than their attack on Ironforge, it was ultimately thwarted as well.
