Shaladrassil as seen from Azsuna.

Shaladrassil is a World Tree situated in Val'sharah and corrupted by the Emerald Nightmare.[1] The green dragon Nythendra was charged with protecting it.[2] After the War of the Ancients, many surviving satyrs were rounded up. Thaon Moonclaw argued to execute them all but was overruled, and they were placed in an eternal sleep deep beneath the roots of Shaladrassil instead.[3]

The ruined town of Shala'nir was built around it. Darkheart Thicket is underneath it, while the Emerald Nightmare can be entered through it.

Speculation

Questionmark-medium.png
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.
  • Shaladrassil may be the first world tree outside of the Emerald Dream, as it predates The Sundering and thus Nordrassil.[4] This would contradict Nordrassil being the original world tree, which has been previously stated.
  • With Shal'dorei meaning nightborne, it is possible that Shaladrassil means Crown of the Night.
