Eventually the corruption of the High Elves reached a point where no longer could Malfurion Stormrage or the vast majority of the Sindar Elves in Ulthuan accept the madness of Ulthuan. Malfurion would one last time go to the Pheonix King who at this point was Bel-Anahar and during this final conversation Malfurion went before the Pheonix King alongside his two closest commanders in the form of Laera Sunstrider, and Vareesa Windrunner in the great council chambers where they were surrounded by High Elven councilors. Malfurion requested one last time for the Pheonix King to give them control over the central forests of Ulthuan and with this allow their traditions to continue, but the Pheonix King was an arrogant man believing he was in the right with his movement of the Elves and in this way he would deny this request. As the disappointed Sindar Elven group left the meeting the situation was made much worse when the Pheonix King egged on by several of his Councillors would insult the Sindari way of life causing the other assembled councilors to laugh at the group, and this final insult was the last straw for the already furious Sindari.
Following the return of the command structure of the Sindari Elves to their forest holdings the decision was clear to all of them that they needed to leave Ulthuan and go to a new home. Ideas flowed from the group, but several of them all pointed to the nearly wild land of France, and due to the experiences of many Sindari who had fought in the War of Vengeance this decision was found to be the right path to take. Following the decision by the leadership to leave for France they commanded the Sindari Elves to pack what things they needed and to make for the ports on the coast of eastern Ulthuan where they constructed a fleet of ships over many months to take the Sindari to France. While these ships were being constructed many of the High Elves attempted to convinse them to stop, and there was even discussion in the capital by the Pheonix King to stop them militarily, but in the end the High Elves were unable to unify in their view of how to stop it so they ended up doing nothing when the day came that the ships set sail for France.

|This is our new home. It looks as if we must fight for the right to stay here.|
When the Elves arrived in Mirkwood Forest they found it wasn't as uninhabited as it had been during the War of Vengeance and the scouting of Vareesa Windrunner. In the decades since her time there the forests now teemed with the darkness brought on by the coming of Trolloc to the forest, of which the Tree spirits that were once teeming in the forest had seemingly been unable to resist. These Trolloc were led by a powerful Myridrrim, and due to this they were growing quite powerful in the forest with their numbers reaching extreme levels in many parts of the Great Mirkwood Forest. The Sindar Elves divided themselves along the western portion of High Forest and at first Malfurion entered them into a battle of attrition while they attempted to find a way to understand why the Trollocs were so organized. The battle raged for years and the Elves founded themselves their first settlement in the settlement of Nonatar where the vast portion of the Sindar Elves came to live while they battled themselves against the Trolloc.

While the Sindari Elves fought against the endless tide of Trolloc it was the spirits of Mirkwood that begin to notice the change in things, and despite the fact that the Sindari Elves were losing the war the spirits saw finally an ally willing to help them against the Myrdrril. The spirits of the forest led by their three spirit council in the form of Coeddil, Durthuu, and Adanhu would come to decide that they would stop fighting against the Trolloc alone and fight with the Sindari Elves in order to protect the forest itself. Thus it was during the stalemate between the Sindari Elves, and the Trolloc that the Sindar Elves were visited by Coeddil of whome was an ancient Ent or spirit of the forest. Coeddil told them of how at the center of the forest lay the grandfather tree which was a tree of unimaginable power if used in the wrong way. He told them that a Myridrrim had made its lair there and was calling thousands of Trollocs to the forest where they were defiling the beauty that was High Forest. Coeddil would also make it very clear that time was not on their side as the Treekings had already been forced out of the Grove of the Grandfather Tree and they knew that the Myridrrim had begun eating the tree itself and was becoming more powerful by the day.
Following this meeting the Sindar Elves undertook a massive invasion of the central section of High Forest where Malfurion led the forces of the Sindar Elves against the numerically superior Trolloc, but with the support of several Treekin in the form of Ashthorn, Oakshell, and Peachtwig they were able to put up a true battle. As the Treekin were commanded to support the Sindari Elves these Treekin would summon to them lesser treekin in the form of the Dryads, and lesser treekin of whom all added to the strength of the Sindari attack. The battles were fierce but eventually the Elves were within the lair of the Myridrrim and it was here that the forest would make itself known once again. As the Sindar Elves invaded the lair of the leader they heard a massive howl go throughout the forest and following this the owl scouts they were using gave dire warnings that unimagenable numbers of Trolloc were moving against the Sindar Elves. As the Sindar Elves were preparing to be overwhelmed Malfurion Stormrage battled alongside many of the leaders of the Sindari including his wife Tyrande Whisperwood against the Myridrrim who had become nearly a god by eating from the Grandfather Tree. As the battle raged and the Trolloc begin overwhelming the Sindari forces the forest turned on the Trollocs and came to the aid of the Sindar Elves.
Founding of Grandfather Tree
With victory in sight Mirkwood Forest unleashed themselves on the unsuspecting Trollocs in numbers that were in the tens of thousands. The Treekin were joined by the Eagles, and Centaurs alongside all manner of creatures who all came out of hiding and poured against the Trollocs in a massacre that killed tens of thousands of Trolloc and left the forest utterly clear of Trolloc outside of the inner lair itself where the Sindari Elves and Treekin alliance was pushing inside of. Inside the Lair of the Mydrrill the forest sent three of its greatest in the form of Coeddil and two other Treekin in the form of Treebeard, and Quickbeam of whom took the fight over and destroyed the Myrdrril who found he couldn't damage the tree spirits because of how much of the Grandfather tree that he had ingested. With the death of the Mydrril and nearly all the Trollocs the forest was cleared of the darkness that had plagued it. Malfurion stood alongside his leadership cohort and prepared to find out what the forest would do now, and he was much happier when Coeddil stepped forward and told him that the Elves were now in control of the forest until such point when they turned against it. The decision was made that the Sindar Elves could live among the forest and assist the forest in its defense and in return the forest would make sure that the Elves always had a place in the places of High Forest. With them coming together the Sindar Elves constructed a vast palace defense among the once destroyed ruins of Grandfather Tree and from here the center of the religion of the Sindar Elves was constructed around Grandfather Tree.
