Silvermoon City is the capital of the blood elves, located in the northeastern part of the Eversong Woods within the kingdom of Quel'Thalas. The breathtaking capital city of the blood elves may rival the dwarven capital of Ironforge as the world's oldest, still standing, capital. Recently rebuilt from the devastating blow dealt by the evil Prince Arthas, the city houses the largest population of blood elves left on Azeroth.
Silvermoon today is only the eastern half of the original city; the western half was almost completely destroyed by the Scourge during the Third War. Falconwing Square, the second blood elf town, is the only part of western Silvermoon remaining in blood elf control. The Dead Scar (the path taken by Arthas Menethil and his undead army on the quest to resurrect Kel'Thuzad, which carves through all of Eversong Woods) separates the rebuilt Silvermoon from the ruins of the western half. Interestingly, the Ruins of Silvermoon house no undead, instead they contain Wretched and malfunctioning Arcane Patrollers. As it stands, what remains of Silvermoon City is still bigger than current Horde cities.
NPCs aligned with the Silvermoon City faction are mostly found in Eversong Woods, Ghostlands, Hellfire Peninsula and Silvermoon City. Less common areas include Orgrimmar, Undercity, Swamp of Sorrows, Thousand Needles, Tirisfal Glades and Stranglethorn Vale.
Blood elves can ride hawkstrider mounts by default, with a normal mount at level 20. Epic hawkstrider mounts can be taught to ride at level 40.
Other Horde races who are exalted with Silvermoon City can also learn to ride hawkstrider mounts.
