In Warcraft: Orcs & Humans the term Azeroth refers to the kingdom in most cases,[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9] and in some it isn't mentioned that it is a kingdom, but a land.[10][11] In some cases it is indefinited if it is refering to a kingdom, land or world.[12][13][14][15] It can be implied that it is a world in only one quote.[16]

Warcraft IIEdit

Warcraft IIIEdit

The Frozen ThroneEdit

In Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne is referred as a world.[36]

Warcraft: The Role Playing GameEdit

The term Azeroth is used to refer the world,[37][38][39][40][41][42] the kingdom[43][44] and the continent.[45][46][47][48][49] It is also used as an alternate name of the Eastern Kingdoms.[50][51]

World of WarcraftEdit

In World of Warcraft's manual the term Azeroth is used to refer the world,[52] but also used to refer one of the three continents that comprise the Eastern Kingdoms:[53][54]

Throughout this manual and in the game itself, you will find the name Azeroth used in two different contexts. Azeroth is both the name of the world of Warcraft, and the name of one of the three continents that comprise the Eastern Kingdoms, the landmass opposite of Kalimdor on the world map. The other two continents of the Eastern Kingdoms are Loch Modan in the center and Lordaeron in the north. Sometimes you will see reference to Azeroth the world, and other times you will see reference to Azeroth the continent.[53]

Although it's stated that there are two terms, there appears to be another use of the term Azeroth: an alternate name of the Eastern Kingdoms.[55][56] This use is also used in Lands of Conflict[50][51] and in an in-game quest.[57]

World of Warcraft: The Role Playing GameEdit

It is used to refer the world,[58][59][60][61][62][63][64][65] a continent[66][67][68][69][70] and a country/kingdom.[71] It appears that Azeroth is also used interchangeable with Eastern Kingdoms.[72][73]
