There was once a place on Azeroth where nature was in perfect balance, a place so peaceful it might have been mistaken for the Emerald Dream. Druids sought enlightenment among the vibrant forests of Val'sharah for millennia, but now the region has fallen under the gaze of evil. A nightmare is spreading unchecked, and none are immune to its corruption.
The Art of World of Warcraft: Legion, pg. 67

Val'sharah (sometimes spelled as Val'Sharah[1][2] and pronounced "VAHL-shaw-raw") is a region in the northwestern area of the Broken Isles. The zone is currently contested by Xavius and his satyrs attempting to spread the corruption of the Emerald Nightmare.[3]


Ages ago, the first druids molded Val'sharah to be a mirror of the Emerald Dream. While merely an echo, it is as close to the Dream as Azeroth can come.[4]

It was here where Malfurion Stormrage first learned druidism under the tutelage of Cenarius.
