Things Less Seen: Alcaz Island

I’m pretty sure plenty of people have seen this little island off the coast of Theramore, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting! But, for those who haven’t been there before, it sure is something fun to explore! It used to be a human settlement before it was taken over by naga and used by Doctor Weavil for a base. It features a lighthouse, dock, broken tower, a jail, and a little camp. For such an ominous place

it has beautiful scenery. The rain foresty jungle is far from what the mainland looks like. There are level 60 elite dragons, hydras, and mobs everywhere, so higher level would make it easier exploring here. And I would not recommend fighting with Doctor Weavil unless you can stealth or have a ton of stuns. After about 10-15 seconds of fighting him, he stuns you and turns you into one of his minions for two minutes. There’s no way to get out of it that I’m aware of, and after the two minutes is up, he fights you and does it again, potentially leaving you stuck there until you get help. Fortunately for me, I had the King of the Jungle talent and could stealth during combat. If it wasn’t for that, I may have still been there.

The tower and jail are pretty spooky places. An Alliance banner hangs in tatters on the front of the half-toppled tower, and the jail down below is filled with skeletons and naga.

The jail here on the island is where King Varian Wrynn was brought after he was captured by the Defias. Most of the jail has since then flooded and naga wander the halls. Down in the lowest parts of the jail is where Varian cell is thought to be, and it’s protected by Tidelord Rrurgaz. Now there are nothing but bones left in the cell. It looks like a lot of them were sitting and talking before they died. Even some in the main halls look like that.

If you like places associated with lore, this is a nice place to come and look around. I’m sure I didn’t see everything there, so go and take a look and see what you can find! Just be careful not to wake the Doctor!
