Eversong Woods (aka Eversong Forest)[1] (DF 153) is a reclaimed section of the Blackened Woods (formerly called Eversong Forest during the Second War).[2] (ToD 207) It is the starting zone for the blood elf race, introduced in World of Warcraft's first expansion setThe Burning Crusade. Eversong is the location of Silvermoon, arguably the largest and oldest surviving capital in the world of Azeroth.


Eversong Woods has historically been the home of the high elves of Quel'Thalas, and has contained the heart of their empire for millennia. Although the woods have seen their share of battle between the elves and their nearest neighbors, the forest trolls, the region has retained a harmonic and peaceful feel.

In the third war, Eversong lay witness to the horrors that the death knight Arthas brought upon the land, and the forest has been permanently scarred by the death wrought by the hordes of undead.

Countless elves were slaughtered, including their ranger general, Sylvanas Windrunner. After Arthas had passed north to the Sunwell Plateau, the remnants of elves in the woods gathered under the banner of Kael'thas Sunstrider and were renamed as blood elves, with the remaining High Elves retreating from the land forever. Although Kael has ventured on to Outland in service of Illidan Stormrage, Silvermoon and the surrounding woods remain in the hands of the blood elves.

The elves have worked extensively to drive the lingering undead from their lands and cleanse the wounds of Arthas’s assault, but the task is far from over. As Quel’Thalas looks toward a new future, ensuring the safety and well-being of Eversong will be a critical first step.


Eversong Woods stand in perpetual autumn with golden leaves falling from the trees.

As yet there are no dungeons of any kind and no battlegrounds in Eversong Woods. However, there is an unknown wooden gate at Tor'Watha, just as seen in the Ghostlands (leading to Zul'Aman) in the southeastern portion of the zone. It may be a portal leading to an unknown instance to be implemented sometime in the future, or it could have been the original entrance to Zul'Aman.

The blight still spreads through Eversong Woods, but the Runestones located in the south prevent the blight from spreading any further. One Runestone has faltered though, and the blight has corrupted it.

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

Very little has changed for Eversong since the events of the Cataclysm. Two flight masters were added in the zone, one at Fairbreeze Village and one at Falconwing Square.[3]


Getting there

The Alliance have to make their way through the portal in the Eastern Plaguelands, then travel through Ghostlands until the border with Eversong is reached.
The Horde can make their way from Tranquillien in Ghostlands; alternatively, they can use the Orb of Translocation in the Undercity to teleport directly to Silvermoon City.

Additional information

Trade archaeology highborne scroll.png
  • Eversong Woods was previously part of the region known as Eversong Forest which stretched through much of Quel'Thalas and included what is now known as the Ghostlands. Eversong Forest became the Blackened Woods after the Second War[2] (ToD 207). The reclaimed and regrown northern area of this forest was changed to 'Eversong Woods' (rather than 'Eversong Forest') during production of the Burning Crusade to avoid too many zones with 'Forest' in the name, such as Elwynn Forest, Silverpine Forest, and Terokkar Forest).[citation needed] However, Eversong Forest still exists in published lore.
  • Eversong was the very first zone of the Burning Crusade that was created. It was first viewed by the public in the first official trailer.
  • Icon-allakhazam-22x22.png first look at Eversong Woods
  • Eversong Woods is the only starting zone with more than one inn (excluding those inside a city), one in Falconwing Square and another in Fairbreeze Village.
  • It is not wise to travel further north into the North Sea from Silvermoon City, as one will "fall to their death" even though there appears to be ground below not 20 yards away.
