Bordered by vast mountains and the Scarab Wall, the city-kingdom of Ahn'Qiraj can be found in the southern part of Silithus. The history of Ahn'Qiraj is connected to Arch Druid Fandral Staghelm, as his own son, Valstann Staghelm led a campaign against the Qiraji which ultimately failed and resulted in his public execution at the hands of Rajaxx, a Qiraji general.
"Little is known of the ancient kingdom of Ahn'Qiraj, save for scattered legends concerning its creators - the enigmatic sorcerers known as the Qiraji. Night Elf tales abound of the Qiraji's strange hold over the insect like Silithid - and their symbiotic link with the terrifying race. It has become clear that the Qiraji are stirring once again behind the sand-blasted walls of their kingdom. The Silithid have begun to amass in the southern regions of Kalimdor. None know what vast evil might spew forth if the gates of Ahn'Qiraj were ever breached."
