The heart of Kul Tiras is sick with infighting and corruption. Gangs run rampant, while the region’s noble leaders squabble for power and influence. It will take determination to get to the root of all that is transpiring here and restore the glorious legacy of the Proudmoores—the future of the Alliance depends on it.
Boralus is a city beholden to the sea. Roughhewn wooden planks line intertwining walkways, terraces, and stairs. Sea-weathered rooftops and awnings adorn the buildings, while amber-lit windows and walkway lanterns lend honeyed tones to the atmosphere. Stone thoroughfares and hanging colorful nautical flags strike a contrast to the sea-worn brick-and-wood construction, creating a sense of warmth despite the chill of the surrounding sea. The sounds of Tiragarde gulls can be heard crying overhead as you explore your new home away from home.
Iron-reinforced locks in the center of Boralus Harbor bar the way from the sea into the inner channels at the heart of the city, while cannons on either side serve as an additional deterrent to vessels approaching with ill intent. Great galleons make their berth in the harbor, but at first blush, these ships don’t appear to be quite the naval force the Alliance was expecting to find in Kul Tiras.
Within the harbor’s Tradewinds Market, visitors will find everything they need for an extended stay in Boralus. Merchants from all over Azeroth are drawn here to hawk their wares, traveling well-establishing trade routes between here, the town of Hatherford, and the fertile lands of Stormsong Valley. Facilities include an inn; three portals to Stormwind, Ironforge, and Exodar; a ship to Stormwind; Profession trainers; a bank; vendors; an Expedition Map; and more. Don’t forget to pick up your ferry pass so you can travel by sea as well.
Mind where you wander in this expansive city, and take care where you wind up. Not everyone in the city is a fine, upstanding citizen, and it’s dangerous to find yourself on the wrong side of town.
