Valstann Staghelm was the son of future Archdruid Fandral Staghelm.[3] His mother died in his childbirth, and Fandral formed a very strong relationship with him,[3] and the son always wanted to please his father.

Valstann fought alongside his father in the War of the Shifting Sands against the Silithid and their Qiraji masters. When news arrived that Southwind Village was under attack, Valstann volunteered to lead a detachment to defend the village, and Fandral reluctantly agreed. Three days later, the Qiraji General Rajaxx brought an injured Valstann to the front of the Qiraji lines and held him up for all to see. Realising that Southwind had fallen and his son's detachment wiped out, Fandral and his forces could only watch in horror as Rajaxx proceeded to rip Valstann in two with his claws.[4] The ambush plan was devised by the Twin Emperors.[5]

His remains were apparently retrieved, and buried outside of Astranaar in Ashenvale.[6]

Hamuul Runetotem, Broll, Naralex and Malfurion discovered that Fandral Staghelm was a pawn of the Emerald Nightmare's lord, Xavius, who sent a hallucination of Valstann to lead the archdruid astray and tricked him into believing his dead son Valstann was alive again. Malfurion destroyed that shadow masquerading as Valstann, causing Fandral to become terribly traumatized. After the Nightmare's defeat, the druids brought Staghelm to the Moonglade in the hope that he would recover, though many suspected that his mind was permanently broken from losing Valstann a second time.[7]
