The Battle of the Burning Glade was a decisive defeat for the elves of the Kingdom of Quel'Thalas against the Orcish Horde during the Second War. This battle was among a series of defeats that forced the quel'dorei to leave the Alliance of Lordaeron, marking the end of their involvment in the Second War. Most notably, it was the battle that cost the lives of a majority of elven lords and knights of the Dawnspire, notably its serdar, Finnistan Truefeather. The battle came to a climatic end when a flight of red dragons, enslaved by the Horde, unleashed a powerful ariel attack on the elven hosts burning hundreds alive.
