Followers of the Path of the Moon (also referred to as the Moonlit Path) are devoted to scholarly pursuits. They are practitioners of magic, scholars, spiritualists, healers, diplomats, and politicians. Many engage themselves in societal affairs, organizing respectful debates, cultural events, and religious ceremonies.
Elune is strongly rooted in this Path. She is the mother of all life and has a hand in the creation of society, freethinking, and faith. Because of this, the leaders of the Moonlit Path are often priestesses, submissive devotees of the Goddess who seek to use their knowledge and power to guide and protect the Kaldorei people. It is for this reason that the practices and teachings of the Goddess are heavily present.
Any class can follow the Path of the Moon, though more commonly priests, mages, druids, and monks make up the majority.
On the wheel of the year, the Path of the Moon corresponds with the Winter season. Winter represents letting go of painful experiences, solitude, grief, restoration and hope. The Full Moon lunar phase shares an attunement with the Path of the Moon and the Winter season. This lunar phase symbolizes a time to be receptive, awareness, spirituality and seeking fullness in life.
In Her name and by Her will I vow to respect and follow the guidance of the High Priestess. To offer my aid and insight to my kin. To respect and spread the teachings of Her will by direction of those appointed by Mother Moon. Those who seek ill of my kin, those who wish us harm will be met by me, this I vow.
I am an instrument of her fury and wrath to be directed against Her enemies. I am a healer, a caretaker and a guardian. I offer my hands in care to those hurt in service of Her. Mending of bone and spirit to the best of my ability. I am conduit to Her ears, a vessel of Her love and understanding.
Her lessons and teachings are my own. I give them humbly and truthfully. These I swear to hold and keep. May Her light guide my steps and direct my hand.

PATH CONSTELLATION: HAIDENE
The moonlit path follows the constellation course (path?) of the first High Priestess, Haidene. The first Kaldorei to hear the Goddess and spread Her teachings. Just as Priestess Haidene took to the skies to assume her place amongst the stars as a demigoddess, followers of the path of the moon ascend to their higher self. Uplifted by their own strength and Elune.
Hovering over the stars on the constellation will display tasks associated with the Path of the Moon. The bottom-most star is the introductory task and must be completed before you can move on to new tasks linked with that star. You can only complete tasks that are linked to stars you have already completed. Excluding the introductory task, one path seal is earned for every three tasks you complete.
