Casualties and Losses:



The Fall of the Sunfury refers to a campaign against Kael'thas Sunstrider.

This conflict took place across several battlefields, with the most prominent area being the Isle of Quel'Danas.

The campaign began once members of the Horde took up arms against Kael'thas Sunstrider, eventually causing a mass storming of the Tempest Keep and Kael'thas' subsequent 'death.'

Later in the Outland Campaign, it was discovered Kael'thas was alive and worse yet for the champions of Azeroth, heralding Kil'jaeden's arrival.

To combat Kael'thas and the Burning Legion, the Grand Alliance and Shattered Sun joined the conflict.

The Horde slew Kael'thas while the Alliance stormed the Sunwell and dispatched Kil'jaeden before he could fully manifest.

The Sunwell was restored by Velen using the heart of M'uru and turned into a holy well for both Sin'dorei and Quel'dorei to draw upon.
