Rut'theran Village is an outpost port for the night elf city of Darnassus, located at the very bottom of the great tree Teldrassil. There is a portal here that goes directly into Darnassus and several boat piers and flight paths. The Midsummer Fire Festival braziers are lit here.
BackgroundEditThis section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft RPG, and thus unlikely to be canon.
Rut'theran's harbor lines the roots of the grand tree, and this humble but friendly village provides just a taste of the majestic locations held in Teldrassil's mighty branches. This is one of the primary breeding grounds of the hippogryphs, and eggs from all across Kalimdor arrive here for care. Inside Rut'theran is a shimmering portal that leads to Darnassus, far above.
Jupiter and EuropaEdit
If you go into the building here and go upstairs to where the library is, up top will be a painting of Jupiter and Europa. It is currently unknown whether or not these celestial bodies actually exist in the Warcraft universe.

In CataclysmEditThis section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.
In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Rut'theran Village was separated from the trunk of Teldrassil and slid several hundred yards farther south into the Veiled Sea. Most of the structures that were destroyed during the shift have been rebuilt, while others—such as the boardwalk that housed the original flightmaster—remain in ruin. In the wake of the destruction of Auberdine, the village has expanded its capacity as a travel hub, now complete with three docks arranged in a T shape, going to Valaar's Berth (west), Stormwind Harbor (south), and a stationary vessel (east).
The flightmaster has been relocated immediately east of the portal to Darnassus, and now offers a flight to Lor'danel (in lieu of Auberdine) as well.
