The Ruins of Ordil'Aran[32, 31]
are located in northwestern Ashenvale, north of Maestra's Post and south of Bathran's Haunt. Although not much remains of the ancient city that once stood here, the site was a favorite spot for the Cult of the Dark Strand before the Cataclysm. They inhabited what is left of the ruins, ready to strike at any who approached. There was a notable presence of high elves among their number.

After the Cataclysm, the Thistlefur tribe descended upon the ruins and either killed or drove away all of the members of the Cult of the Dark Strand. Many of their bodies can still be found in the hills and across the grass. Two new paths also lead into Thistlefur Village at the ends of the Ruins. The furbolg are massing at the north end of Maestra's Post, much to the concern of those already fighting the incoming Horde invasion from the south.
The Ruins of Ordil'Aran are also the site of the Heartswood tree.
