Here is where I first read about it.http://www.wowwiki.com/Night_elfOn that page it says right under the beginning of their "history" section that the Well of Eternity was the source of their immortality.But just to check I went to the official history page on the WoW site...http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/story/chapter1.html#5...where it says that the night elves gained "virtual immortality" from the well of eternity, and then later on, because of a dragon's blessing on the World Tree, they "would never age or fall prey to sickness or disease." If you like, you can interpret "virtual immortality" as "not immortal" I guess. But my understanding is that the original Well made night elves immune to old age, sickness and disease the same way that the dragon's blessing did. They could still be killed in unnatural ways however (by demons for instance), and that's where the "virtual" part comes in. But if you'd like to nitpick about semantics then be my guest. It doesn't really matter so much -- this detail of ancient history doesn't have a huge effect on the night elves in the game today.
