Silver is a lustrous, white and malleable metal that is used primarily as currency and jewelry in the world of Azeroth. It is a precious metal that is often fought for or over by the various factions of the world.
Due to its malleable nature, silver is often made into jewelry or plated onto objects to make them more valuable. It is not uncommon for wealthy households to eat with utensils and dishes made from solid or plated silver.
Engineers have recently found other uses for silver as a conductor of electricity and reactant to other materials.
