A massive tree off the north western coast of Kalimdor is home to the Night Elves and their capital city, Darnassus.After the defeat of Archimonde at the battle of Mount Hyjal,the Night Elves began to fear the future having lost their cherished immortality. Many Night Elves choose not to wait for the original World Tree, Nordrassil, to heal itself and hope their immortality returned and stood behind a projectspearheaded by Frandral Staghelm to plant a new World Tree.
The Night Elven leader, Malfurion Stormrage warned that nature would never bless such an arrogant act. But when the great druid was lost inside the Emerald Dream, Staghelm went forward with his idea and planted the great tree Teldrassil. However, Malfurion was correct and nature did not bless the greattree and it is slowly becoming corrupted much to Staghelm's displeasure.
