The new world PvP zone Tol Barad
became ready for testing in the latest Cataclysm
beta (build 12759), and we got to take a look at it more than a few times today. The zone is actually two islands consisting of a northern peninsula that serves as the quest hub -- although none of the quest NPCs are implemented in this patch -- and a Southern part that serves as the main stage for combat. The zone has a bleak forest landscape that evokes Duskwood and the Isle of Conquest, with the main combat area roughly about the size of Wintergrasp. Take a sneak peek into Tol Barad in our gallery below.
