Raynewood Retreat is located in north-central Ashenvale, around the Great Tree of the same name, east of Shael'dryn's moonwell and west of Night Run. It is an Alliance outpost where Ordanus, a keeper of the grove and one of the eldest sons of the forest god Cenarius, is hiding.
The Retreat was attacked by the Horde, as was the newly constructed tower nearby, Raynewood Tower. They had little success however, for each time they slayed a dryad defender, Ordanus would resurrect them as soon as they hit the ground. The powerful Shadumbra also killed off many of the Horde soldiers. Ordanus would die by the hand of a Horde adventurer on orders of Braelyn Firehand.

The Raynewood Retreat is an Alliance outpost led by a keeper of the grove and one of the eldest sons of the forest god Cenarius, Ordanus. The druids and keepers here oppose the corruption that spreads through their beloved land.
Although he is described as hiding in Raynewood, Ordanus may be leading it.
