Southwind Village was once a night elven base of operation in Silithus, but was destroyed by the qiraji during the War of the Shifting Sands. Valstann Staghelm, son of Fandral Staghelm, led a detatchment of the night elven army to defend the village, but was captured by General Rajaxx after his troops were slaughtered by the swarming qiraji. Today, Southwind Village has been long since overrun by relentless silithid that infest large parts of that area. The horror of the village's initial sundering still echos through time — the tortured spirits of fallen druids and Sentinels wander the ruins aimlessly, and are led by Shade of Ambermoon.
In Legion EditThis section concerns content exclusive to Legion.
At the end of the Legion expansion, Silithus was transformed in to Silithus: The Wound and thus Southwind Village was largely destroyed and needed to be rebuilt. The Horde noticed quickly that the silithid and tortured spirits had been removed, so they quickly claimed the area to establish a new outpost.
