A Shadow over Akeroth
Tower of High Sorcery
The Towers of High Sorcery are the physical representation of the Order of High Sorcery. The Towers are where the Order assembles and where the Test of High Sorcery is administered, non-members are only permitted in the Courtyard of the Tower, and attempting to breach the Towers walls has resulted in many a death.
The Towers of High Sorcery act as schools, and each tower specializes in one School of Magic (save for Wavereath which adopted Abjuration after the Cataclysm), from here students will go on in their desired School until they have completed the Rights of the Arcane in their specified School.

This 5th Tower was built by Boccob and served as his final achievement before his Death and ascension to divinity (see Deities).
