The Caverns of Time is an expansive cave system located in Tanaris and is home to the bronze dragonflight. The dragonflight was blessed by the titan Aman’thul with the powers of time travel and a mastery of temporal magic. They use these powers to guard time against meddling from the infinite dragonflight and others wishing to change past events. The Caverns also house the Hourglass of Time, a powerful artifact created by Nozdormu, the leader of the bronze dragonflight, to hold the sands of time. Inside the Caverns, you can see streams of energy flowing to and from the Hourglass, with some of the energies flowing from what appears to be space itself open in the sides of the Caverns.

The Stormspire is a neutral town located in Netherstorm on the Outland continent and was introduced during the Burning Crusade expansion. The town is controlled by the Consortium, a band of ethereal smugglers led by Nexus-Prince Haramad. The town is surrounded by lush vegetation and protected from the constant magical storms by two Eco-Dome Generators called Sutheron and Skyperch. This gives it a unique appearance that stands in stark contrast to the rest of Netherstorm which has been stripped bare by the magical energies. The town was built on top of a high plateau and is only accessible by flight or by elevator. This height, combined with the vegetation and the eco-domes gives it a secluded feel and could be why the Consortium settled here. Several dialogues and quests in the area tell stories about the Consortium’s enemies, including the Ethereum, a rogue faction of ethereals seeking to “become void,” as well as Prince Kael’thas Sunstrider and his followers, who were former customers of the Consortium. Also present is Advisor Rahim, a member of the Protectorate, a faction of ethereals working to stamp out the Ethereum and those who seek to harm the other ethereals. Their presence here suggests the Consortium is a sanctioned ethereal faction and not a rogue black market operation as their name and activities suggest, at least in the eyes of the other ethereals.

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 Throne of the Elements is located in northern Nagrand on Outland, with an alternate version also present on alternate-Draenor. In present-Azeroth, the Throne is the last home of the powerful elemental furies, which have seen their numbers fall drastically since the destruction of Draenor. The remaining furies work to keep the elements balanced and often act as ambassadors to the shaman who commune with them.
