In the RPG
Built ages ago by the night elves, this ancient shrine dedicated to the wilderness spirit Aessina lies in the midst of a forest glade in Ashenvale's heart. The shrine is a clear forest pool with a statue of Aessina, standing beside it, clothed only in ivy. Dryads are known to visit the shrine to venerate her.
- A Warcraft III manual map shows a place called Dryad Shrine in eastern Ashenvale. It may have been related to the RPG description stated above.
- The same map also placed Ancient Ruins similarly to the location of the Shrine of Aessina in World of Warcraft.
