Azeroth: "The Size of Newcastle"

The excellent James Wallis has been doing some clever maths on his blog, and has used the raw power of infinite science to tell us some geographic and astrological facts about the World Of Warcraft.

Taken together, the two main continents have a combined area of approximately 113 square kilometres. In terrestrial terms that’s about the same size as the city of Newcastle, or the London Borough of Hillingdon. And if we assume that the world-maps produced by Blizzard Entertainment show approximately the entire surface area of Azeroth then we can wrap it around an imaginary sphere and calculate the diameter of the hypothetical ‘planetoid’ of Azeroth at 12 kilometres.

Of course, as Wallis explains, Azeroth is actually flat. More incredible revelations about the extreme density of things in Azeroth can be found here.
