Of course this might be possible seeing how the change from Vanilla-Wotlk from Wotlk-cata's northeron coast line changed,possibly a new quel/lord zone?

"Northeron is the name of a location where some of the Wildhammer dwarves lived.[1] Some of the dwarves in the Second War came from Northeron. Northeron was known for its mysterious ironwood tree forests, the torrential storms from its frozen mountains, ominous and foreboding peaks,[2] and jagged ice cliffs.[1] It is said that a gryphon aviary was hewn from solid rock by the dwarves of Northeron.[3] The feral dwarves of the Northeron wildlands offered the service of their Gryphon Riders to assist in the decimation of the foul orcs who had desecrated their homeland and slain the leader of the Alliance forces, Lothar, in Blackrock Spire assault. Chief Thane Kurdran Wildhammer of Northeron was the most famous of these Gryphon Riders.

It appears to be a separate realm from that of the Aerie Peaks region as both locations are mentioned in Day of the Dragon. It also appears to have nothing to do with Northrend which is mentioned separately in the book.[4] " So I would think this is a wildhammer alliance zone housing Cailia Menethil and the survivor's of lorderon :)

It's already been stated that Northeron is located in the Twilight Highlands.

A fine example of how WoW Wiki isn't updated, but Wowpedia is:
Northeron is the name of a location where some of the Wildhammer dwarves lived. Some of the dwarves in the Second War came from Northeron. Northeron was known for its mysterious ironwood tree forests, the torrential storms from its frozen mountains, ominous and foreboding peaks,[1] and jagged ice cliffs.[2] It is said that a gryphon aviary was hewn from solid rock by the dwarves of Northeron.[3] The feral dwarves of the Northeron wildlands offered the service of their Gryphon Riders to assist in the decimation of the foul orcs who had desecrated their homeland and slain the leader of the Alliance forces, Lothar, in the assault on Blackrock Spire. Chief Thane Kurdran Wildhammer of Northeron was the most famous of these Gryphon Riders.

However, as of the Cataclysm, the Northeron's famed icy cliffs rapidly melted, and most of the independent dwarves who lived there were killed by the Twilight's Hammer forces and Iso'rath. Some of the wreckage is still visible along the northern coast. Hence, the region formerly known as Northeron is now considered the northernmost part of the Twilight Highlands. However, the nearby spiritual center of Kirthaven remains intact.[4]

Doesn't make sense because the zone above Plague lands is grayed out that is Northaeron, the twilight highlands is no where near that place.

Basically blizzard messed up again, gj blizzard, like how they said The Eredar corrupted Sargeras but changed the lore in BC.

THE RPG says Northaeron is where some high elves fleed after the blood elves took over most of quel'thalas which would make more sense since.

1. Blizzard moved Northeron into twilight high lands
2. it is right next to ghostlands.
3. Easy high elf starting zone that can phase into ghostlands for duo questing.

Their you can see how blizzard moved it into the twilight highlands thinking us the community just forget about things.

It is called Northern Lordaeron what you are talking about, their is no info about the zone just that it has night elf structures residing in it last time we saw it.

"According to the roleplaying guide, a number of high elves who did not become blood elves took refuge on some lands in the north of Lordaeron and adjacent to Quel'Thalas.[2] This could be that location. In fact, Quel'Lithien Lodge is a town of high elves that is located adjacent to Northern Lordaeron in the Eastern Plaguelands and into the closed area, there are some elven ruins, indicating the presence of high elves in this zone." -RPG This is non-canon but would be an easy way for blizzard to use phasing to add high elves as a playable race.

That zone was never called Northeron by Blizzard, the fans just assumed it.

That zone was never said to be Northeron by anyone except fans who made assumptions based on the fact that, until the most recent Ask CDev, there was nothing that indicated where Northeron was.

THE RPG says Northaeron is where some high elves fleed after the blood elves took over most of quel'thalas which would make more sense since.
The RPG doesn't say anything about Northeron; its only appearances in lore are the Warcraft 2 manual and a single sentence in Day of the Dragon. Even if it did, though, it would be a moot point because the RPG isn't canon.

During development of the Burning Crusade, Pandaria was where Azuremyst is now. Does that mean Blizzard thinks their community doesn't care? Or does it mean that things simply changed in the course of the game's development, because nothing is set in stone until it's officially released?

HINT: A fuzzy photo of a pre-pre-pre-alpha map on a whiteboard doesn't count as lore.

Northeron is like the Atlantis or El Dorado of WoW. People talk about it, and yet no one can confirm its existence.

I heard it's going to be the new High Elf capitol and after they land Dalaran there it will be the staging point to take Lordaeron back.

I think they should open it up as a non-instanced stratholm, like they did with AQ

Is this before or after Shen-Zin Su drags Zandalar out of the ocean and over to the Echo Isles?

Northeron is just another name for the Hinterlands, I think.

The gryphon riders were native to Northeron in Warcraft II and Aerie Peak in Warcraft III, but that area was called the Hinterlands in WoW.

Q: Does the Wildhammer area that was called Northeron appear in WoW?

A: Prior to the Cataclysm, the northernmost part of the Twilight Highlands was called Northeron. The rapid melting of its famed icy cliffs due to the catastrophic climate shift from the Cataclysm, the incursion of Twilight's Hammer forces, and the appearance of the creature known as Iso'rath all served to put an end to Northeron and many of the independent dwarves who lived there. Some of the wreckage is still visible along the northern coast. Fortunately, the nearby spiritual center of Kirthaven remains intact.

when they open up the rest of Quel'thalas to the greater world they will have to put stratholme in the world map.

Stratholme is just a bunch of facades, and overlaps with Deatholme, but it is already built in the non-instanced overworld. Silvermoon is a bunch of facades too.

Northeron is Twilight Highlands and in the game.
"Northern Lordaeron" is not Northeron.
"Northern Lordaeron" is blocked off by invisible walls and just has a couple of night/high elf ruins.

It's been in the game since Vanilla and was originally labeled as Quel'Thalas when you zoned in. The walls were only added in Cata.
