Responding to a call from Advisor Rueti, the
Silvereye gathered its forces in Ashenvale, to hear her word.
As her Sisters and brothers gathered she spoke of her plan...
The Blight of Felwood
Since their journey through Felwood to cure
Niviel Silvertree, the Silvereye had not travelled into Felwood
in force, leaving its Warden of the Wild Arydia to watch over
it, and bring word of developments there back to the Circle.
Now, in answer to her rising concerns about the Satyr gathering,
and the presence of the Fel in force in Felwood, Rueti had
called together a force to travel to Felwood to discover the
On the border of Felwood
For each of the gathered Silvereyes, the sight
of Felwood stretching far to the north was a painful one.
Only the very youngest amongst them could not recall a time
when Felwood was glorious and wild, like Ferelas in its beauty...
And now, as the wind turned south it carried
the stench of corruption and the sounds of a forest devoid
of the natural peace it should enjoy. Steeling themselves
for the conflict ahead, they gripped their weapons more closely
and moved north along a road lit by sickly deadlights...
Satyr and Infernals
Soon, their suspicions proved true, as scouts
reported encountering Satyr gathering in the corrupted trees
around them. The twisted once-kaldorei seemed intent on ambushing
their cousins jealous of their purity and lusting for their
destruction. The battle was joined beneath the twisted trees,
with the Silvereye cutting deep into the heart of the Satyr
camps, withdrawing before the Satyr could amass a counter
attack. Though the SIlvereye were forced to withdraw they
left many Satyr gutted and maimed in their wake, swearing
to return and purge them utterly.
But worse was to come. As they returned to
the road, Arydia lead the group toward the Irontree Woods,
once home to some of the wisest of the Ancients. But no longer.
The arrival of the Burning Legion had left the waters that
had once nourished the Irontree woods corrupted and fouled.
The great Ancients were dead, their wisdom gone out of the
world, and only their great hulks remaining as a testimony
to things now lost.
And yet as the Silvereye gathered to
mourn the loss, they were appalled to discover that the spirits
of the once-great Ancients had somenow been trapped into twisted
bodies and now rampaged through the remains of the Irontree
Woods. Heartbroken, the Silvereye were forced to fight creatures
who by all rights should be their allies.
As the sad and twisted creatures finally fell
the Silvereye realised that they could no longer allow the
state of Felwood to go unanswered, and each in their own private
ways resolved to return in the future and do what they could
to defend and cleanse Felwood.
The journey into Felwood had solved another
purpose however, as Rueti and the other skilled herbalists
in the Circle had gathered certain secret herbs and plants
that would be used to redress recent imbalances, and punish
