Malfurion Stormrage: Greetings, hero. Welcome to Val’sharah. It has been an age since I have set foot in these precious woods. Too long… Our work here is simple. We must call upon my mentor, Cenarius, and learn where he safeguards the Tears of Elune. With them, you will be one step closer to sealing Sargeras’ Tomb and thwarting the Legion. You have many treacherous tasks in front of you. Consider your visit here a brief respite. Come, this will not take long.
Speak to Malfurion Stormrage at Lorlathil in Val’sharah.
Malfurion Stormrage: Welcome to Lorlathil, sanctuary of the druids. Though this forest has aged, its spirits still remember me.
(I am ready, Malfurion.)
Malfurion Stormrage: Ahh, Val’sharah… Every step in this forest brings back precious memories. Ages ago, the first druids molded this land to be a reflection of the Emerald Dream. Merely an echo, but Val’sharah is as close to the Dream as this world can come. Make ready, hero. We shall soon stand in the presence of the Lord of the Forest. Follow me.
Nyandra Springbloom: Malfurion! Thank Elune you’ve come!
Malfurion Stormrage: It is good to see you agai–
Nyandra Springbloom: You must come quickly; something’s happened! He was in the Dream, but now he won’t wake. We cannot stir him.
Malfurion Stormrage: What is this… corruption?
Nyandra Springbloom: We– we don’t know. It only just appeared.
Malfurion Stormrage: This corruption – I’ve never seen it before. And yet, it seems somehow familiar…
Cenarius, Keeper of the Grove
