Ruins of Eldarath

Ruins of Eldarath is an ancient night elven city located in central Azshara.

Pandaren once gifted a chest to the Highborne who kept it in Eldarath. 10,000 years later, it was found by Li Li Stormstout.[1] Some of the most powerful mages of the Highborne created runes and tablets citing rules of the arcane and insights into their findings. They would leave these for all to ponder in public places.[2] During the War of the Ancients, a battle was fought here between the Kaldorei Resistance and Burning Legion. Tichondrius was fought by Jarod Shadowsong and Huln Highmountain.[3] The Great Sundering caused most of the city to crumble to the Bay of Storms below.

A cluster of ruins clings to the eastern cliffs, long shunned by night elves. Ferocious bands of naga appear to have claimed Eldarath for their own. The powerful warlord Krellian controls the remaining ruins from the Temple of Zin-Malor. The Explorer's League became interested in Eldarath and adventurers of the Alliance were sent here to discover rubbings of the ancient runes.

Before the Sundering, Eldarath was one of the most beautiful cities of the night elves. Now in ruins, the naga have reclaimed it, and the powerful warlord Krellian controls the ruins from the shattered remains of Elune's temple. About half of the ruins of the city are deep underwater.[4]
