Ruins of Vashj'ir are the ancient highborne ruins of the once-majestic city of Vashj'ir. It is the current stronghold of the naga within Vashj'ir. The massive ruins are found in southwestern Shimmering Expanse and are divided into three tiers:
- The first tier contains various satellite ruins such as Quel'Dormir Gardens.
- The second tier is Nar'shola Terrace.
- The last and final tier is Quel'Dormir Terrace, which has the Quel'Dormir Temple in the middle.
- Located to the east across a collapsed bridge, now known as the Severed Span, is Biel'aran Ridge. Many of the Highborne ruins in Biel'aran Ridge are an extension of the Ruins of Vashj'ir.
According to a chain of flashbacks beginning with , Varkul the Unrelenting leads a huge army and claimed the then abandoned Ruins of Vashj'ir. Both he and his Kvaldir were defeated by an army of naga led by Lady Naz'jar and Fathom-Lord Zin'jatar.
