After the War of the Ancients, many night elves took up the new practice of druidic magic. From this point on, they would sleep and wake periodically, spending much of their time in Ysera's realm. Ten thousand years later, High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind awoke the druids all at once, but the dragons did not all emerge from the Emerald Dream to support the elves at war. The Burning Legion fell to the mortal armies at Mount Hyjal, but the damage to the World Tree, Nordrassil, prompted Archdruid Fandral Staghelm to attempt to create another without the support of the ancient dragons who aided in the making of the first. The Cenarion Circle supported Fandral in his decision.

With Malfurion Stormrage absent — suspiciously — Fandral created the tree, called Teldrassil. However, the new tree has not granted the night elves immortality; in fact, many plants and animals on Teldrassil suffer strange maladies. A few people whisper that these problems might stem from the fact that Teldrassil does not have the blessing of the dragons who created Nordrassil.
