A Hero’s Welcome

Yrel: Prophet Velen has asked me to show you around Shadowmoon Valley.

We will go first to Embaari Village, where my sister Samaara is waiting for us. I have not seen her since the Iron Horde took me to Tanaan.

The village is just one of many trading villages between the Temple of Karabor and Shattrath.

Follow the road east and make your way to Embaari Village. I will accompany you, my friend.


Quest Objectives

Speak to Samaara at Embaari Village in Shadowmoon Valley.



Yrel: I will go with you, hero. A warm welcome awaits us at Embaari Village.

Yrel: Hello Mister Taarvos!

Taarvos: Yrel!?! Have you come back from the dead?

Yrel: It will take more than some orcs to defeat me!

Yrel: I can’t wait to surprise my sister, Samaara. I never thought I would see her again.

Maami: Yrel! Is that you? You still owe me six copper!

Yrel: What was that? I couldn’t hear you! Quickly hero, let’s go before she comes after me!

Draenei Child: She’s back!

Yrel: Good day, children! I’ve brought a hero from a far away land to meet you.

Yrel: Samaara! I’m back!

Samaara: Yrel? After the Iron Horde took you, I feared the worst!

Yrel: The light granted me strength when I needed it most. It is good to be home.

(Find Samaara at Embaari Village: 1/1)



Samaara: Thank you, stranger! The Prophet spoke of new allies arriving on our shores.

I hear it is thanks to you that my sister is safe.

I owe you a great debt, friend.
