Loremaster of Kalimdor is a meta-achievement required as part of the Loremaster meta-achievement. It requires the player to complete quests in most of the zones within Kalimdor, but the requirements are different based on the faction.
As originally conceived both the continents of Azeroth, Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor, were a single unit for questing purposes. One example would be the no longer available Fallen Hero of the Horde quest line that originally required multiple trips between Swamp of Sorrows and Azshara. In many cases quest givers in Eastern Kingdoms provided quests that would count for Kalimdor and vice versa. This achievement initially required completion of 730 Alliance and 700 Horde quests across all the zones of Kalimdor. In Patch 3.0.8 those amounts were reduced to 700 and 685 quests respectively. Effective with Cataclysm and Patch 4.0.3a each zone conformed to the paradigm in effect since The Burning Crusade with a specific number of quests being required for each zone and all of those quests being completable within that individual zone.
