Lion's Rest is a peaceful place dedicated to reflection which commemorates the late King Varian Wrynn as well as those who fell in battle to defend the Alliance. The monument there does not contain the body of the King, as it could not be recovered. King Anduin Wrynn often uses this place to address his people on solemn occasions.
Lion's Rest is a place of contemplation and remembrance, a tranquil park dedicated in honor of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf.
The monuments surrounding the tomb are written in a variation of the real world runic alphabet, Elder Futhark. This is not the first time that Elder Futhark has been used to represent Common.
"The Son of Stormwind lies here. Broken in two by his weakness, he lived by the sword. Forged together again, the greatest king the kingdoms of Lordaeron have ever seen. He led the might of the Alliance with pride. He lives forever in our heavy hearts. Rest in peace, O Son of Stormwind."
- There is a gate that leads into the sewers, and from there to the Stormwind Stockade in the water here.
