Shen'dralar

Eldre'Thalas was a great elven city in central Feralas. While much of it - now called Dire Maul - is overrun by ogres (and worse), elves still dwell in parts of the main city. These are the Shen'dralar, survivors of the Highborne of Queen Azshara. They are mighty magicians and lorekeepers, sustained by the energies stolen from the imprisioned demon Immol'thar. Prince Tortheldrin has ruled them for thousands of years, but they are now a waning people, beset by foes without and within. Still, they retain tremendous magical knowledge which could prove useful to a worthy adventurer.

There are no known bonuses for gaining Shen'dralar faction. Hey - Highborne are arrogant that way.

Reputation from Kills

There are no known mobs that yield reputation with the Shen'dralar.

Practical Notes

Entering the Library - The main meaningful interaction with the Shen'dralar is turning in a book to the library. This can be done solo (especially with a stealth class) or as part of a Dire Maul North run. You will need to get through two Dire Maul doors, requiring either the Crescent Key, 2 Large Seaforium Charges, 2 Arcanite Skeleton Keys, or 300 Lockpicking. The library is in the Dire Maul North area. After entering through the door north of the Amphitheatre, you will see an east-west pathway with a ramp down to the courtyard. Wait until the two patrols are heading away from the ramp. Jump up on the west wall of the ramp to the west (if you walk down the ramp, you will aggro up to 4 elite guards, so be careful). Jump down onto the grass and take the ramp heading west. At the bottom is another locked door, opening onto the passage to the library. If you're soloing, you will need to stealth or hearthstone out, since there's no easy way to avoid the guards on the way out.

Getting the Crescent Key - The key is held by the imp Pusillin in Dire Maul East. You may get the related quest "[60d] Pusillin and the Elder Azj'Tordin" from Azj'Tordan in the Lariss Pavillion of Feralas (this is not required to get the key, but it explains why he has it). After entering Dire Maul East from the Broken Commons, he will be to your left and initially friendly. You need to talk to him, whereupon he will run away. You must follow him (killing the other mobs you encounter) until he eventually becomes hostile and turns into a L57 elite demon with 5 non-elite fire imp companions. He (and his companions) do a lot of fire damage and he reflects magic. If you're careful and run the moment he starts to change, you have the opportunity to pull the imps without aggroing him (the imps are all aggro-linked, however). The key is group-lootable.
