Being the place where Galakrond last dropped from the sky, it is near here where the Great Aspects were born.
Hour of Twilight
This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.
This massive boneyard, formerly used by the Scourge in order to bring the proto wyrm Galakrond to undeath, and abandoned since the Wyrmrest Accord's efforts to halt the operation, now serves as a rendezvous point with red drakes from Wyrmrest. Twilight agents have also appeared, trying to stop Thrall and his companions from reaching the temple. The ambushers are led by Asira Dawnslayer.
Dawn of the Aspects
After a rather pointless meeting between the former Dragon Aspects, Kalecgos found himself drawn to Galakrond's Rest. He found an artifact of octagon shape, which was made of a metal he didn't recognize and surrounded by a lavender aura. Afraid that Galakrond would suddenly spring to life, Kalecgos returned to the Nexus with the artifact.
Later he would return to get rid of the item, as it had tormented him with visions of prehistoric Azeroth and Galakrond. Kalecgos met a taunka woman named Buniq, who said that some things should not remain buried. As she left, Kalecgos found a severed hand in the snow beneath Galakrond. It was grey and too large to be a humans, covered in the remains of a glove. An object which looked to be glass was held in the palm of the hand, and it fit into the artifact Kalecgos had found earlier perfectly.
