Astranaar in the TCG
|Sources: World of Warcraft|
Astranaar is a night elven town situated on the east-west road that divides Ashenvale in two. Like the Redridge Mountains and Duskwood regions in the Eastern Kingdoms, Ashenvale is often attacked by Horde as it is one of the first-tier contested zones for the Alliance. However, the danger is two-fold since Ashenvale houses two Horde towns, one in the Zoram Strand and the other to the east at Splintertree Post. Exercise extreme caution around Astranaar. When questing, set your hearthstone to the inn whenever feasible in order to avoid having to dodge groups of Horde who like to gather a short distance away from the town in preparation to raid it.

During the early stages of the War of the Thorns, the night elves' outposts all fell one by one to the Horde, as explained by Captain Delaryn Summermoon. They then marched onto Astranaar, and the buildings were burned, the forces were decimated, the guards were poisoned by assassins and even the civilians were killed. The Horde took control of the town but eventually left for the Zoram'gar Outpost. The fallen soldiers were later honored by the Darnassian City Guard and their wisps released.
Later, Horde forces infiltrated Astranaar to take down Sentinel Thenysil who commanded the remaining Sentinels in Ashenvale. The Alliance also launched a counterattack, slaying the commander that marched on the village.
