Default Blood Elf Canon History

It's been a while since I posted, but I figured I might as well as you guys; I'm looking for some help figuring out the canonic history of the blood elves. I'm looking at the period 7.000 years ago till now. The bits I'm interested in specifically are up in the Burning Crusade; for me, the bits in the Burning Crusade, or rather the events that lead up till the events in the Burning Crusade are what interest me the most.

I'll be using this forum post as a log of my progress so to say. The end result should be a collection that should make sense of pre-TBC blood elf society.

I've decided that it's best to start with Arthas: Rise of the Lich King to fill in the gaps of the timeline for now. I'm using the PDF file to search for numbers, dates, seasons and so forth. Hopefully, I'll get something out of it.

The research in Arthas: Rise of the Lich King will cover this area. I will cover any year in between, writing as much information as possible. Hopefully, this information can then be used when compared to other novels. I will give each novel and/or RPG a similar treatment.

Instead of using the notation for the Dark Portal, I will be using Arthas' age as a reference.

However, I recently discovered the 'In the Shadow of the Sun' was released more recently than Arthas. So, instead, I will focus on this short story before getting back to Arthas.
