Ethel Rethor is a night elven ruin in the far northwest of Desolace. Most of the ruins are located under-water with the exception of a lone tower with a small bridge leading to a closed entrance. Prior to the cataclysm, the Argent Dawn representative Azore Aldamorthas could be found here. As with many other coastal elven ruins this one is also inhabited by naga.
From Lands of Mystery:
- "These night elf ruins in northern Sar'theris Strand have been overtaken by the naga, who dwell in the ruins both above and below the water. A human mage named Azore Aldamorthas manages to keep the naga away from a massive, sealed tower that was probably created by the Highborne. While he is interested in the tower, he is more concerned with a missing artifact - The Scepter of Light. According to Azore, legends say that the scepter is powerful enough to sink entire cities. He believes the warlocks at Thunder Axe fortress have it, and if he's right about how powerful this thing is, that worries me.
