The Scythe of Elune is an ancient thing, a branch, twisted and gnarled of wood that could be older than even the Kaldorei. Velinde Starsong was granted it from Elune (or maybe she only thought that it was a gift of Elune...), to fight against the demons in Felwood and Ashenvale. By further channeling the energy of the Scythe, the barriers of time and space weakened, and she was able to draw the worgen into the world of Azeroth. First, they followed her into battle, and with their brutish strength at her command, they tore into the demons of Felwood. Later, she noticed, that though she had not summoned additional worgen, their numbers continued to increase. It was as though the Scythe no longer required her intervention for the summoning process. While searching for Arugal to ask him for help, she lost the Scythe within a cave in Duskwood. It is known, that the dark mage Morganth and Black Riders from Deadwind Pass are now searching for it.
