[50.6, 18.6]

is a seaside night elf settlement in northern Darkshore, founded after the destruction of Auberdine in the Cataclysm. It is built on a patch of land between two waterfalls. Water flows in from the sea into a whirlpool deeper inland, and the town is connected to the mainland by large and long wood bridges. Unlike the rest of Darkshore, the ground and trees here are vibrant green.

Many survivors of Auberdine have moved to this new area, but others are still unaccounted for. Alliance adventurers are sent to rescue the unfortunate disaster victims on the nearby beach. To make matters worse the nearby Shatterspear tribe recently joined the Horde by invitation from Garrosh Hellscream who intended to assault Lor'danel from two directions. This plan later fails due to the combined might of the night elves and their Ancient allies, the trolls of Shatterspear Vale presumeably wiped out.

When the Horde's advance into Darkshore is stopped by Malfurion Stormrage, Sylvanas Windrunner sends Varok Saurfang and Nathanos Blightcaller into Felwood to discover a path to attack from the north. The Horde are successful, attacking and capturing Lor'danel. This proves to be the last stand of the night elves before Sylvanas orders the burning of Teldrassil during the War of the Thorns.
