Rocnest was a high, rocky outcrop and natural citadel in Evereska that had housed elven garrisons for nearly a thousand years since the Crown Wars. Though the fortress was abandoned after the fall of Aryvandaar, its location between Evereska and the Greycloak Hills meant that the elves of Evereska continued to maintain it as a watch post.[citation needed]


Around 1371 DR, Nightal 30, Rocnest was lost when forces from Waterdeep led by Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun were too late to turn the tide against the phaerimm in the Battle of Rocnest.[1]
