The old ruin stands at the tundra's south end — the southern tip of Northrend. From its architecture it appears to be nerubian except that it's mostly above ground. There may have been an earthquake long ago, possibly the result of magma beneath, and this section of [[Azjol-Nerub]] which uplifted this section up to the surface. Regardless, nerubians aren't there now, and a pack of naga moved in some time ago. They're nasty and attack anyone who gets within range.{{Cite|LoM|93}}

Riplash Ruins, found at the southernmost portion of the Borean Tundra near the Riplash Strand, are ruins of what appears to be a night elf or highborne city. There is a shrine here that looks like the Temple of the Moon, but with a statue of Queen Azshara in it.

It was said that from here the naga sought to flood the region by melting the icecaps. Their plans were halted, however, by the re-emergence of the kvaldir, who wiped out most of the naga and took the ruins for themselves, using them as a staging ground for attacks on the Borean Tundra.

The old ruin stands at the tundra's south end — the southern tip of Northrend. From its architecture, it appears to be nerubian, except that it is mostly above ground. There may have been an earthquake long ago, possibly the result of magma beneath, and this section of Azjol-Nerub which uplifted this section up to the surface. Regardless, nerubians aren't there now, and a pack of naga moved in some time ago. They attack anyone who gets within range.LoM 93

In Wrath of the Lich King, the ruins have now been described as an ancient night elf or highborne city, and not a section of Azjol-Nerub.
