The Tree of Life is a mighty enchanted sapling of the World Tree, Nordrassil, from which the night elves draw their life energies. This mysterious ancient is the key to the night elves' immortality and harmonious coexistence with nature. Nordrassil's energy, channeled through the tree of life, allows the night elves to benefit from its powers regardless of the vast distances that might separate them.

Trees of life are the most important ancients in night elf society. They are the wisest and most insightful of the ancients, and gently guide night elf leaders toward the skills they need to effectively lead their people. Trees of life rarely enter combat alone; their importance means that they are usually surrounded by ancients, dryads, keepers and night elf allies. A tree of life fights defensively, remaining near its companions, but willingly smashes opponents with its great branches.
This enormous ancient's eyes burn blue in its blunt face. Golden sparkles dance in its boughs.
