Eldre'Thalas was one of the capitals of Queen Azshara's Highborne servitors. Within its walls, the elves lived in peace. Among them was a group of powerful arcanists known as the Shen'dralar.[1] Its ruins are now known as Dire Maul inland of the west coast of Feralas.

During the War of the Ancients, Eldre'Thalas was protected by Goldrinn.[2] Its ancient defender was Tendris Warpwood.[3]



A city populated by highborne Elves lead by the Queen Azshara 10,000 years ago. After the sundering, the city of Eldre'Thalas was affected by the earthquakes of the cataclysm and decimated during the first invasion of the burning legion. The city is now known as the ruins of Dire Maul (Feralas).

From Dungeons & Raids - Dire Maul at the official site:

Built twelve thousand years ago by a covert sect of night elf sorcerers, the ancient city of Eldre'Thalas was used to protect Queen Azshara's most prized arcane secrets. Though it was ravaged by the Great Sundering of the world, much of the wondrous city still stands as the imposing Dire Maul. The ruins' three distinct districts have been overrun by all manner of creatures - especially the spectral highborne, foul satyr and brutish ogres. Only the most daring party of adventurers can enter this broken city and face the ancient evils locked within its ancient vaults.

From Adventure Guide: Built thousands of years ago to house the kaldorei's arcane secrets, the formerly great city of Eldre'Thalas now lies in ruin, writhing with warped, twisted forces. Competing covens once fought for control of Dire Maul's corrupted energy, but they have since settled into uneasy truces, choosing to exploit the power within their own territories rather than continue to battle over the entire complex.
