Tree of Life
- This article is about the night elf structure. For for the Druid ability, see Tree of Life (druid ability). For statistics, see Warcraft III Structures.
The Tree of Life is a mighty enchanted sapling of the World Tree, Nordrassil, from which the night elves draw their life energies. This mysterious ancient is the key to the night elves’ immortality and harmonious coexistence with nature. Nordrassil’s energy, channeled through the tree of life, allows the night elves to benefit from its powers regardless of the vast distances that might separate them.
The Tree of Life can grow into the Tree of Ages.
None of the Tree of Life's stages exist in World of Warcraft, although Druids can turn into a Treant called Tree of Life Form. They may have all been killed in the Battle of Mount Hyjal, or it is a scale issue.
These ancients suffered heavy losses during the Third War and returned to the forests to spread their seeds and replenish their numbers undisturbed.
Trees of life are the most important ancients in night elf society. They are the wisest and most insightful of the ancients, and gently guide night elf leaders toward the skills they need to effectively lead their people. Trees of life rarely enter combat alone; their importance means that they are usually surrounded by ancients, dryads, keepers and night elf allies. A tree of life fights defensively, remaining near its companions, but willingly smashes opponents with its great branches.
