Throwing Shade | Patch 7.3

Alleria Windrunner: That was Locus-Walker. He taught me all that I know about the Void, and he still has more to teach me.

If he is here, then the ethereals’ presence only intrigues me further. I had thought him the only one of his kind, but now that I have seen another tangling with the Void…

Come, we must play his game if we want to learn what he knows. He appears to have gone toward the Umbra Hollows to the north.



Investigate the Umbra Hollows with Alleria and Locus-Walker.

Throwing Shade



Alleria Windrunner: This way.

Discovered: Umbra Hollows

Follow Alleria: 1/1

Locus-Walker: I have something I want to show you, but we mustn’t be seen. Follow.


Alleria Windrunner: Explain yourself first.

Locus-Walker: Such impatience. I believe you will find the answers you seek on the other side.

Cross into the Void: 1/1

Editor’s Note: After clicking the shadow portal, the screen hue turns purple and your hero is shrouded in shadows similar to Illidan in Well of Eternity dungeon. The Ethereals can’t see you while you walk by. However, Void Effusion have detection aura. Don’t walk near their aura circle. Shadowguard Voidcaster has a detection buff above their head (with no visible aura circle) so stay away a prudent distance. This is how they both look like:


Shadowguard Ethereal: I heard the Viceroy finally took care of that meddling priest.

Shadowguard Ethereal: A pity he did not kill the elf and her ally, too.

Dismantled Portal examined: 1/1


Shadowguard Voidcaster: There is plenty material for the harvest, here. Let none of it go to waste!

Shadowguard Ethereal: Show yourself!

Shadowguard Ethereal: Hmmm.

Locus-Walker: How industriously they work. A pity they will be overtaken.

Alleria Windrunner: I sense a little disappointment. Was I really your best student?

Image of Saprish examined: 1/1


Image of Saprish: I will not give Locus-Walker the satisfaction of disrupting our efforts. Capture him at all costs. Do what you like with the fleshing and her ally. They are of no concern.

Locus-Walker: I had hoped to find at least one promising soul on this rock.

Alleria Windrunner: I have not turned away from that path. You know why I resisted.

Shadowguard Voidcaster: Our work is nearly complete. Soon all of Argus will fall to darkness!

Voidforge examined: 1/1


Shadowguard Voidcaster: You cannot hide.

Shadowguard Ethereal: What was that?

Alleria Windrunner: How did you manage that?

Shadowguard Voidcaster: I see you.

Shadowguard Ethereal: Show yourself!

Discovered: Shadow’s Concourse

Find Alleria and Locus-Walker: 1/1

Alleria Windrunner: What are you talking about?



Alleria Windrunner: (Alleria seems momentarily speechless.)

Locus-Walker: Why, your mate of course. How does he feel about your choices?
