Background

From the official Legion site:

Legend has it that this elven family heirloom—once wielded by an infamous Ranger-General—can turn a mediocre archer into a master marksman… and make a master truly peerless.

From the Legion: Hunter Artifact Reveal

A proud heirloom of the Windrunner family, Thas'dorah was carved from a bough of the mother tree of Eversong Woods shortly after the elven kingdom of Quel'Thalas was founded. Handed down to the eldest of each generation, the bow was last wielded by the high elf Ranger Captain Alleria Windrunner. It disappeared along with its owner following the destruction of the orcs' homeworld, Draenor, and the subsequent formation of Outland.

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.

It is said to have belonged to an infamous Ranger-General. While Sylvanas was an infamous Ranger-General, When their mother Lireesa died, Sylvanas passed the bow to Alleria. Alleria was only ever a Ranger Captain. It is not possible for Thas'dorah to have been wielded by Sylvanas after Alleria, who took it with her through the Dark Portal. It is likely that the infamous Ranger-General mentioned was an earlier Windrunner.
