World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade was initially released in January of 2007 as the first sequel expansion to 2004's World of Warcraft. Developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment, the expansion sold well over three million copies in its first month of release, becoming the fastest-selling PC game of the time.
Ten thousand years before World of Warcraft takes place, the races of Elves shared a common ancestry known as the Kaldorei. The Kaldorei's upper class, the Highborne, found favor with Queen Azshara by offering their exceptional aptitude for arcane magic. The Queen, seeking to preserve her rule with these powerful magic users, began offering preferential status to the Highborne, leading the sect to develop a position of arrogance and greed. The Highborne willfully drew power from the Well of Eternity, an immensely powerful reservoir of arcane power, despite these actions being viewed as heretical by other members of the Elven race.
The Highborne would do all in their ability to distance themselves from other members of their race and restrict the Well of Eternity to only themselves, slowly growing addicted to the arcane energies the Well offered. Over time, the Highborne used the knowledge and power gained from the Well of Eternity to promote the Kaldorei to lofty new heights, but they continued to plumb the Well recklessly to achieve their ambitions.
Eventually, the Well of Eternity's energy, and the continued use of its power, attracted the Burning Legion. The limitless powers offered by Sargeras seduced Queen Azshara, and she resolved to open a way for the Legion's entry into Azeroth. She commanded the Highborne to create a portal using the Well of Eternity, and the armies of the Burning Legion entered Azeroth. What followed would become known as the War of the Ancients, and millions would perish in the conflict. It would only end when Malfurion Stormrage, during battle with Azshara, collapsed the Well of Eternity and sealed the demon's entryway.
Many Highborne survived the war and were brought back into Elf society under the new rule of Malfurion. Though allowed to reside with their kin, the Highborne were no longer at the height of their people. When Illidan Stormrage created a new Well of Eternity, the Highborne quickly tried to sway the other Elves. Despite the practice of arcane magic being declared a crime punishable by death, the Highborne unleashed a magic storm in Ashenvale. When it came time to resolve punishment for their crimes, the Elves could not bring themselves to kill so many of their own and instead moved to exile the Highborne.
