Echo Isles
The troll starting area map

回音群岛[64, 85]300px are a small cluster of tropical landmasses located off the southeastern coast of 杜隆塔尔. In addition to being the home of the 暗矛巨魔, the archipelago teems with 迅猛龙, 老虎, and other dangerous predators.


After the Third War

After being saved by 大酋长萨尔, the Darkspear Trolls pledged their support to the Horde and with the Darkspear Islands sinking they joined the orcs in Kalimdor. Much like the orcs created Orgrimmar after the Third War, it's possible that the Darkspear colonized their home on the nearby Echo Isles after the war as well. The Isles were home to sea giants led by Sea King and a deathlord with skeletons.

However sometime after Kul Tiras forces under the command of Admiral Daelin Proudmoore attacked their new home, forcing them to flee (a task helped by the Mok'Nathal Rexxar and his companions) to Orgrimmar and to establish a new base on the mainland of Kalimdor.[1][2][3]

After the defeat of Admiral Proudmoore during the Third War, Thrall made these islands available once again to the Darkspears. The trolls, however, only had a few moments to settle down on the Isles before one of their own, Zalazane, betrayed them. The witch doctor, somehow learning the secrets of undeath, took his people by surprise using his zombies and other minions. This once again forced Vol'jin and the other survivors to retreat back to the shores of Durotar. It was on that shore, now known as Darkspear Strand, Vol'jin founded Sen'jin Village.[4][5]

It is from Sen'jin Village that numerous attempts have been made to oust Zalazane and reclaim the islands, but Zalazane continously managed to fool adventurers into believing that they had slain him.

After rallying troll citizens and adventurers of the Horde, along with the help of Bwonsamdi, the Darkspear tribe finally killed Zalazane and retook the isles.

The Retaking of the Echo Isles.

Ritual Dancers could be briefly found on the isles near the ruins of their homes before Cataclysm but after the retake. Some could also be found dancing around the remains of Zalazane, on the isle that would soon to be known as Zalazane's Fall.

Description from the official site

After years in exile, the Darkspear trolls are preparing to invade the Echo Isles and reclaim the land once bestowed to them by Thrall. Led by Vol'jin, a wise and highly regarded Darkspear, the tribe's bravest warriors will set out from Orgrimmar and Sen'jin Village, seeking to bring about Zalazane's fall and begin the process of rebuilding their homes and villages on the Echo Isles. In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, new troll adventurers will begin their journey on these tiny islands off the coast of Durotar, where they'll be able to experience this time of trial and transition firsthand.

Though the Darkspears may once again have their land, the tribe's turmoil is far from over. The impending cataclysm will spark rivalry among the Horde leadership, and after years of running from a seemingly endless string of conflicts to preserve the Darkspear nation, Vol'jin is done fleeing. The Darkspears have reclaimed their islands and have no intention of settling elsewhere. Of course, as an untested member of the tribe, you'll have some training to do before tackling the Darkspears' larger matters.

Every great hero starts somewhere. As a troll of the Echo Isles, the journey begins with safeguarding your people's well-being. Early in your adventures, you'll be charged with protecting the local Bloodtalon raptors and hatchlings from the sorcery of a nearby sea witch, slaying the beasts that feast upon the Darkspears' primary food sources, and assaulting the naga who've overrun the northern isle. But it won't be long before Vol'jin trusts you with vital—and potentially dangerous—information about the political struggles plaguing the Horde and, ultimately, the fellow members of your tribe.

In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, you'll face these trials and more in the trolls' new and enhanced introductory questing experience (level 1 to 5). Be steadfast and honorable, and your actions will help usher in a new era of Darkspear perseverance in a time of ultimate peril.

During the Pandaren Campaign in Pandaria, an attempt was made to kill Vol'jin by Garrosh Hellscream and at the same time he also sent the Kor'kron to these isle and declare martial law chaining up the trolls to prevent an uprising.

Starting Area

New troll here!

Since World of Warcraft: Cataclysm the Echo Isles have become fully reclaimed and are a starting zone for new trolls. They begin by their training and are helped along the way by Zuni, but not everything is well. The raptors are acting strangely, and the trolls will soon find their homeland threatened again, this time by the Spitescale Naga led by Zar'jira the Sea Witch. As players quest throughout the zone they develop a friendship with Zuni and eventually fight side by side with Vol'jin against Zar'jira in order put an end to the invading Naga. After a fierce battle, Zar'jira is slain but not before she is able to kill Zuni.

Warcraft III

There are two maps of the Echo Isles in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne:

  • A multiplayer melee map for two players.
  • A map played as a part of "To Tame a Land" mission of the orc campaign. It was much bigger than its portrayal in World of Warcraft and housed a population of wildkin, murlocs, and hydras. There were also more troll statues and ruins. With Cataclysm, Echo Isles now resemble its portrayal in The Frozen Throne.
    • The southern isle was called Pyre Island.
