The Throne of Kil’jaeden is located in north-eastern Hellfire Peninsula on the Outland continent. The location was named by Gul’dan decades before Draenor had become Outland, during the time when the orc clans met on the mountain in what was then Tanaan Jungle to drink the blood of Mannoroth, turning them into the Legion’s slaves. The location is named after the Legion’s second in command at the time, Kil’jaeden, and the weakened fabric of time in the area served as a direct connection to his lair on the Legion home planet of Argus.

Uther’s Tomb is located in southern Western Plaguelands on the Eastern Kingdoms continent. It was constructed following Uther’s death during his fight against his former pupil Arthas Menethil at Andorhal. The battle took place following the Second War during the fall of the Lordaeron kingdom when Arthas returned to Andorhal as the Lich King to reclaim Kel’Thuzad’s remains. Uther’s body was retrieved by the few remaining paladins and buried in the southern ruins of Andorhal. This is how the Tomb would remain for several decades before first appearing in World of Warcraft upon its release.

Ravenholdt Manor is located in the mountains between Hillsbrad Foothills and The Hinterlands on the Eastern Kingdoms continent. Not much is known about the early days of the Manor, but the building’s architecture along with its location means it was probably part of the Alterac Kingdom around the time of the Second War. This human kingdom came to an end following the Second War, when it’s leader, Aliden Perenolde, was thrown out by the other human kingdoms. Aliden went on to form The Syndicate, a criminal faction of humans who see the Alliance as their mortal enemies and the Horde as nothing more than brutes to be used as slaves.

The Scarab Dais is located in southern Silithus on the Kalimdor continent, just outside of Ahn’Qiraj. The Dais, and the Scarab Gong it holds are relics of the Qiraji empire that were reconstituted by Fandral Staghelm and Anachronos following the War of the Shifting Sands nearly 1,000 years before World of Warcraft’s time. Following the War, the duo and their armies created a magical barrier around the walls of Ahn’qiraj and set the Scarab Gong atop the Dais to be used as the mechanism to open the Scarab Gate, should the need ever arise. The Gong has seemingly been guarded by Jonathan the Revelator, a Watcher from the Bronze dragonflight, since it was put in place.
