Tears of Elune

The Tears of Elune are one of the Pillars of Creation and embody the dream of what Azeroth could be.[1] They were kept safe in the Temple of Elune in Val'sharah until Xavius stole them and used the now Nightmare-tainted relic to corrupt the Aspect Ysera.[2] After defending the Temple of Elune from Ysera, the Tears were purified through what was apparently Elune's direct intervention.[3] They were taken by an order leader to Dalaran along with the other Pillars of Creation.[4]

A stained glass window in the Tomb of Sargeras shows that when the Highborne were in possession of the Pillars of Creation ten thousand years ago, the Tears of Elune were kept on top of a staff.



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.
  • It is possible that this Pillar might represent Eonar based on the fact that the other Pillars were named after a titan of the Pantheon. However, Norgannon doesn't have one either.
  • The Tears of Elune representing "the dream of what Azeroth could be" could refer to the Emerald Dream.
