Azsuna was once a gem of the night elf empire. Now much of it lies in ruins, a home for vengeful elven spirits and hidden enclaves of blue dragons. What remains of this haunted land has come under threat from conflict among Azeroth's defenders, an army of serpentine naga, and the Burning Legion.[1]

Azsuna is an island[2] and zone in the southwestern part of the Broken Isles. It holds the ruins of the night elf civlization that existed before the Great Sundering.[3] The ghosts of ancient night elves roam this area, along with remnants of the blue dragonflight. The Nightfallen maintain a presence here. Azsuna was not destroyed in the Great Sundering, but was actually devastated several years before that by Queen Azshara herself.[4]

This is where one of the Pillars of Creation, the  [Tidestone of Golganneth], was contested by the heroes of Azeroth and the minions of Azshara.[5]


Azsuna was originally populated by more than ten thousand elves.[6]

Queen Azshara's pact with the demon lord Sargeras went mostly uncontested by her subjects. One of the few that dared to defy her was Prince Farondis.

As one of the queen's trusted advisors, Farondis was in regular contact with the Highborne of Zin-Azshari, but his palace in Azsuna was several leagues away from the elven capital. As such, he was able to witness Sargeras' influence on the Highborne court without falling sway to the Legion lord's temptation.

Farondis' plan was bold, but simple: destroy the Well of Eternity in Zin-Azshari. Doing so would close the portal to Sargeras' realm and stem the tide of evil before it even started. In order to accomplish this task, he would use the power of an artifact stored deep within Nar'thalas Academy: the  [Tidestone of Golganneth].

Unfortunately, the queen's influence in Farondis' palace was already deep-seated. Vandros, a young noble in Farondis' court, caught word of Farondis' plans to defy the Queen, and reported the insurrection to Queen Azshara herself.

Azshara wasted no time in punishing Farondis and his people. In a frightening display of arcane power, she destroyed the Tidestone of Golganneth, and in doing so, released a wave of dark energy over all of Azsuna and its inhabitants.

Since that day, the elves of Azsuna have been unable to experience the release of death, and their spirits wander the land indefinitely.[7]

At some point during the invasion, the Order of the Silver Hand sent their troops in the region after discovering a small demon force in the east, and hearing rumors that they report directly to Balnazzar. However, they were lead by Pitlord Argamemm who was killed by the paladins.[8]
