Windrunner Spire is the former home of the Windrunner dynasty in a village named after them on the west coast of the Ghostlands. It was the location of the final stand made by cadre of rangers lead by Sylvanas Windrunner during the Third War.[1] Here, they fell to the death knight Arthas and the undead Scourge. The Cult of the Damned transformed many of the elven rangers into banshees, including the ranger-general herself. [14, 54] It is now overrun by banshees and cultists of the Scourge, operating from Deatholme in the south. Remnants of artifacts are scattered throughout Windrunner Spire from the Windrunners for adventurers.

War Crimes

During the trial of Garrosh Hellscream on Pandaria, Vereesa Windrunner summoned Sylvanas to Windrunner Spire in secrecy to discuss her plans to assassinate the former Warchief. Vereesa, motivated by the death of her husband Rhonin, sought the help of her undead sister to poison Hellscream and Sylvanas, ultimately, agreed to aid her. The spire is still inhabited by hostile banshees and the remnants of the Deatholme cultists as of the novel, which takes place four years after the blood elves join the Horde.[1]
