General Information Edit

Northshire Abbey is the home of the religious order of clerics known as the Brotherhood of Northshire. It is located in Northshire Valley in the foothills of Elwynn Forest of the Kingdom of Stormwind. The closest town to Northshire Abbey is Goldshire to the southwest.

Northshire Abbey is comprised of three sections, named the Main Hall, Hall of Arms, and Library Wing. Off the main hall are two chapels. The southern chapel is known as the Archbishop Faol Chapel also called the Priest Chapel as it serves as the area where the priests and brothers of Northshire pray morning and evening prayer. The western chapel is known as the Uther the Lightbringer Chapel also called the Paladin Chapel as it serves as the area where paladins of Northshire meditate on the Light.


Prior to the First War, the abbey served as the home of the Holy Order of Northshire Clerics. It was the location where Medivh was cared for during the years he was in coma. During the course of the First War, the Clerics of Northshire, led by Archbishop Alonsus Faol, aided the armies of Stormwind in their fight against the Horde.

Shortly after Garona Halforcen was captured and brought to Northshire to be held as a prisoner, the abbey was destroyed in an orcish onslaught. A band of human warriors, who were convinced by enemy agents to fight against the crown, caused the initial attack Northshire Abbey.

During the Second War, the site of the abbey was the headquarters of Cho'Gall's Twilight's Hammer clan, allied to Gul'dan. After the Alliance of Lordaeron reclaimed Elwynn Forest, Northshire Abbey was rebuilt, though the area has been suffering a kobold infestation, increasing numbers of wolves and the growing presence of bandits known as the Defias.

Today the abbey serves as a training site for trainees and neophytes of the Church.
