Azshara Crater was a planned Battleground located in Azshara. Originally mentioned in Patch 1.3, the battleground was likely located in the Forlorn Ridge in southern Azshara, and was intended to work in a similar fashion to Alterac Valley. At the time, the entrances were already placed within the zone, with the Alliance entrance on the south side of Forlorn Ridge and the Horde entrance on the north side. They never became active as the battleground was never implemented, though the terrain exists in the game files. These portals were removed in Cataclysm, along with the rest of the Forlorn Ridge.
