New Silvermoon was the new Imperial capital for the Empire during the reign of Emperor Jarethan II It was constructed specifically to remove the power from the nobility, who were then arranged to spend their time with the Emperor at his new capital. New Silvermoon was constructed not as a palace but as a small city. Fortified heavily by legions of Sunstar Elite, maintain watch from the cliffs surrounding the city.
The City was built over five raised platforms each which lead to another section of the city, guarded by the five orders of the Empire, with a parliament and main tower situated in the center, and the Emperor's private chambers in a hovering spire over the city.
New Silvermoon was considered a new era in imperial architecture bringing back the traditional styles of the Blood Elves.
