Newman’s Landing

Newmanslanding1

Newman’s Landing is a small area on the west coast of Dun Morogh which can be reached by flying or swimming.

The area has a house and a dock. There are several items around like an alcohol still, boxes of grain, bone piles, a sign reading “Newman’s Landing” and a sunken boat in the water. A white object which looks like a cup can be seen on a table. It has two letters, an F and one that might be a T, and it has the logo of a hammer which has some resemblance to the Ironforge logo, but without the shield.

A goblin named High Admiral “Shelly” Jorrik stands at the dock with two Booty Bay Bruisers. He sells blacksmithing supplies and can repair your gear.

Newman’s Landing is very old, so most of you might have heard of it before or even been there. I remember when I first discovered it back in the Burning Crusade when I was swimming around the continent looking for places like this. Here is a screenshot from one of the first times I went there in the Burning Crusade.

Some people say that Newman’s Landing is where new Alliance characters appear for a brief moment before being moved to their starting zones. Others think the name is a pun for “No Man’s Land”.

What do you think?

  1. That Goblin used to sell a rare Blacksmithing pattern. I’m drawing a blank on it at the moment, and am not even certain he sells it anymore.

    I do believe it’s a No Man’s Land pun.
