Aderic's Repose is a large burial mound and graveyard on the cusp of the Northgate River, situated due west from Gilneas City and just south east of the Headlands. The graveyard may be found by following the southern road from the port town of Keel Harbour. It was also formerly reachable via a large bridge by the main gates to Gilneas City, however the bridge was destroyed during the early stages of the Invasion of Gilneas, thus making Aderic's 's Repose only accessible by water craft or by a secret tunnel from within the city which runs underneath the Northgate River. It is a significant site for the peoples of the Kingdom of Gilneas, as it is the burial ground for many of their important figures, such as the patriarch Aderic, for whom the graveyard is named. The graveyard served as a major waypoint during the Gilnean exodus following the Invasion of Gilneas.

It is unknown the exact number of dead buried within the repose or who rests there. The ground is referred to by multiple notable Gilnean figures that it is holy ground, and is ultimately chosen as the resting place for Prince Liam Greymane after his heroic sacrifice during the Battle for Gilneas City. The site was also noted as being used for the mass pyre that burnt the corpses of those who fell during either the battle for the city or who could be recovered. It is unknown if this was done to avoid reanimation, as no val'kyr were present during the invasion, or if this was done to simply place the bodies at rest. It is known that the spirit of Aderic watches over Gilneas from this area (as an offering was made to him as Liam was laid to rest); and that the hasty evacuation through the graveyard (which displaced several graves) was enough to rouse long dead spirits.

Aderic's Repose is a rich site of historical significance and is believed to be the only official graveyard, with many Gilnean families opting to bury their dead kin within their lands or elsewhere.
