The Steamspur Mountains mark a natural barrier between Ascalon (to the east) and Orr (to the south, across the sea). The high elevations of Timberline Falls and Mount Maelstrom soon give way to the swamps of Bloodtide Coast and Sparkfly Fen. These mountains may offer salvation: they provide a natural barrier against the Risen making their way inland, through the marshes. Steamspur Bay is the body of water east of this area.
- Over the past 250 years, a volcano became active in the Southern Shiverpeaks and thawed the mountains.
- This is a meta-region for zones within the Shiverpeak Mountains and Maguuma Jungle regions for the purposes of Explorer and other mechanics.
