The area known as the '''Ruins of Silvermoon''' makes up the western half of [[Silvermoon City]], the [[capital city]] of the [[blood elves]] and the former kingdom of [[Quel'Thalas]]. It is split from the reconstructed eastern districts of Silvermoon City (now the capital of the Horde's blood elves) by the [[Dead Scar]], the path taken by [[Arthas Menethil]] and the [[Undead Scourge]] on their way to the [[Sunwell]] to resurrect the dead [[necromancer]] [[Kel'Thuzad]]. As they marched across Quel'Thalas at the bidding of the [[dreadlord]] [[Tichondrius]], Arthas and his warriors corrupted everything in their path. The Scourge smashed through the [[Elfgate]]s defending [[Silvermoon]] from attackers and decimated the Thalassian [[Ranger Corps]], led by [[Sylvanas Windrunner]], before finally reaching the [[Sunwell Plateau]] and placing Kel'Thuzad's rotting corpse into the magical waters of the Sunwell. Kel'Thuzad was resurrected as a powerful [[lich]], whilst the well was forever corrupted.

It is likely, due to the large amount of house buildings in this part of Silvermoon City, and the lack of house buildings in the populated Silvermoon, that this was — before the Scourge came — the residential district of Silvermoon City. This would also explain the huge amount of [[Wretched]] in this concentrated area and the amount of wandering elves in Silvermoon, such as [[Rarthein]].

However, there are not many quests here, and it is probably only good for a level or two before you move on to the quests immediately south of the Ruins of Silvermoon or to [[Fairbreeze Village]].

Silvermoon City map; The Ruins of Silvermoon are on the western side of the Dead Scar.

The area known as the Ruins of Silvermoon makes up the western half of Silvermoon City, the capital city of the blood elves and the former kingdom of Quel'Thalas. It is split from the reconstructed eastern districts of Silvermoon City (now the capital of the Horde's blood elves) by the Dead Scar, the path taken by Arthas Menethil and the Undead Scourge on their way to the Sunwell to resurrect the dead necromancer Kel'Thuzad. As they marched across Quel'Thalas at the bidding of the dreadlord Tichondrius, Arthas and his warriors corrupted everything in their path. The Scourge smashed through the Elfgates defending Silvermoon from attackers and decimated the Thalassian Ranger Corps, led by Sylvanas Windrunner, before finally reaching the Sunwell Plateau and placing Kel'Thuzad's rotting corpse into the magical waters of the Sunwell. Kel'Thuzad was resurrected as a powerful lich, whilst the well was forever corrupted.

Due to the large presence of house-like buildings this may once have been the residential district of Silvermoon City before the coming of the Scourge. It would explain the large population of Wretched that haunt the ruined lanes as well as those blood elves wandering the streets of the blood elven capital, such as Rarthein.

Falconwing Square is the only populated area here and serves as an intermediary point for new blood elf players between Sunstrider Isle and Silvermoon City, much like Brill, Dolanaar, Goldshire, Razor Hill, Kharanos, Bloodhoof Village, and Azure Watch. It has an inn, mailbox, profession and class trainers, and a few quests.

NotesEdit

Brian Morrisroe, one of Blizzard's lead artists, stated in a behind-the-scenes video that the lack of energy from the Sunwell caused the high elf buildings in the Ruins of Silvermoon to fall apart.
