The Bazaar is a subzone of western Silvermoon City. It contains one of the capital city's two Auction Houses, Sorim Lightsong the Cloth Quartermaster, and the Wayfarer's Rest Tavern among other things.

There is a gathering of blood elves in the south-west corner of the Bazaar, being addressed by two speakers. The sequence that plays out gives an insight to political manipulation in Silvermoon.

After the Scourge invasion in the Third War, the Bazaar became a safe place for the high elven survivors led by Lor'themar Theron. It was also here that the fallen king Anasterian Sunstrider was cremated, and where his son Prince Kael'thas renamed the high elf survivors as sin'dorei - the blood elves following the Sunwell destruction.[1]

Trivia

  • The word "bazaar" derives from the Persian word bāzār, which is a permanent covered marketplace where goods are sold or traded.
