Welcome to my Night Elf Shrine

Hi, my name is Pomelo and this is my Night Elf shrine, Night elves are my favorite Alliance race in World of Warcraft. My first WoW character was a Night Elf Hunter named Itoshii on the Argent Dawn US server way back in the day. They are so pretty and their lore is so cool. I hope you enjoy learning more about these cheeky elves! Feel free to hit me up if you have any feedback or questions :3

The Kaldorei

The ancient and reclusive night elves have played a pivotal role in shaping Azeroth’s fate throughout its history. More than ten thousand years ago, their heroics during the War of the Ancients helped stave off the demonic Burning Legion’s first invasion. When the scattered remnants of the Legion on Azeroth rallied together with the vile satyrs centuries later, the night elves again rose to meet the threat. The ensuing War of the Satyr exacted a heavy toll from the night elves, but ultimately they vanquished the forces that had set out to wreak havoc on their world.

Night elves (or Kaldorei, for "Children of the Stars" in Darnassian), are a powerful and mystical race whose origins extend back to ancient times. These then-immortal beings were among the first to study magic and let it loose throughout the world nearly ten thousand years before the First War. The founders of a magical and advanced civilization which at its peak spanned the breadth of ancient Kalimdor, the night elves came into a horrific conflict with the Burning Legion but achieved a pyrrhic victory that ended in the Great Sundering, turning Kalimdor's landmass into the continents of the present age. The devastation wrought by the chain of events birthed in conceit caused a wholesale shift in direction. The night elves abandoned the use of arcane magic, fearing its use would draw the Burning Legion back to their world. The main survivors of the Sundering crafted a radically different society centered around druidism, the harmony with the natural world and its denizens.

May the stars guide you.
