What to expect from Zul'Aman

Located in the Eastern Kingdoms, just south of the elven kingdom of Quel'Thalas, the Ghostlands dare Azeroth's heroes to enter the Amani stronghold of Zul'Aman.

As the one-time capital of the Amani tribe, it's filled with trolls that swear all their loyalty to their leader, Zul'jin who has spent several years plotting behind Zul'Aman's walls in order to get revenge on the Horde for allowing his most hated enemies, the blood elves, to join its ranks.

THREATENING: Zul'Aman is not for the weak

Per Blizzard's official post, "Zul’jin and his lieutenants are holding several hostages in Zul’Aman. When you enter the instance, the Amani will begin preparations to terminate them. If you defeat one of Zul’jin’s lieutenants and reach a hostage before time runs out, you’ll be rewarded with an additional piece of loot and a timer extension—a brief stay of execution. Rescue all hostages, and your raid will be rewarded with one Amani War Bear epic mount."
