Netherstorm is what remains of Farahlon in Outland. It was once a region of beautiful fields before Ner'zhul's portals ripped the planet apart. The landscape is now fractured and warped by the chaotic energies of the Twisting Nether. When Kael'thas and his blood elves traveled to Outland to seek a cure for their addiction, they constructed a set of manaforges built strategically across the region to siphon the Nether's energy for themselves. The harvest of energy escalated the region's deterioration, inviting the concern of Outland's denizens. One faction in particular, the Protectorate, sought to preserve the region's environment by constructing eco-domes. These eco-domes are the only habitable zones left in the region, containing varying species of flora and fauna.
