Field Photographer Friday is a weekly look at the lore and history behind locations around World of Warcraft. This week, we're taking a look at the Shaper's Terrace!
The Shaper's Terrace refers to two separate titan buildings located in Un'goro Crater, on the Kalimdor continent. The two Terraces were constructed over 25,000 years ago by the Titan Freya as outposts to observe her and the other Titan's experiments in the Crater.
The main Shaper's Terrace, located in northern Un'goro Crater, is where Freya worked for years, creating and experimenting with life on Azeroth. Un'goro Crater was one of three locations chosen for her experiments because of the power from the Well of Eternity that coalesced there. Un'goro Crater would go on to birth some of the Wild Gods and countless species now found across Azeroth. Close to the Terrace is a Waygate that links directly to Sholazar Basin on the Northrend continent, another one of the three locations chosen to birth life on Azeroth.
The second Shaper's Terrace is located in eastern Un'goro Crater, and bears a resemblance to the main Terrace. While it's exact use is unknown, it was likely just another outpost used by Freya and the Titans while they worked on the Kalimdor continent tens of thousands of years ago.
