Shaladrassil as seen from Azsuna.

Shaladrassil is the first World Tree,[1] situated in Val'sharah and corrupted by the Emerald Nightmare.[2] The green dragon Nythendra was charged with protecting it.[3] After the War of the Ancients, many surviving satyrs were rounded up. Thaon Moonclaw argued to execute them all but was overruled, and they were placed in an eternal sleep deep beneath the roots of Shaladrassil instead.[4]

The ruined town of Shala'nir was built around it. Darkheart Thicket is underneath it, while the Emerald Nightmare can be entered through it.

Notes

  • Shaladrassil being the first world tree contradicts Nordrassil being the original world tree, which has been previously stated.

Speculation

Questionmark-medium.png
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.
  • With the term "shal'dorei" possibly meaning "Children of Shadow" since Shalla'tor means "Shadow Render", or "Children of the Night" since shal'dorei are also called "Nightborne", it is possible that Shaladrassil means "Crown of Shadow" or "Crown of the Night".
