Archmage Khadgar: The nightborne could prove powerful allies against the Legion. We must aid this Thalyssra if we can. We should be able to find her by tracking her magical echoes, the same way I found her distress call. I can teleport you near the location where she recorded that message. From there you must search for ripples in the very fabric of the arcane itself. My wand should do the trick. Follow the sparks it creates – they should lead you to places where Thalyssra used her magic.



Quest Objectives

Use Khadgar’s Wand to find Arcane Echoes and track down First Arcanist Thalyssra.



Archmage Khadgar: Be careful, champion. The land of Suramar has been wild for ten thousand years.

(Click the portal to Suramar)

Khadgar’s wand crackles to life.

Nightborne Scion: She must have come this way. Keep looking! Die, outlander!

Nightborne Scion: The shal’dorei will rule!

Nightborne Scion: My magic… defeated?



NOTE: Open the Objectives Tab (beneath the minimap). Click the Khadgar’s Wand icon. Follow the road south. Move every few yards and click the wand. Follow the magical pink arrow. If nothing happens, click the wand again and again until a pink circle is drawn on the ground. Then click the circle.


Faint Arcane Echo revealed: 1/1


Echo of First Arcanist Thalyssra: Make haste to Suramar. You may be our last hope. Ith’nala kanesh! I hope someone out there is listening…

Echo of Arcanist Thalyssra winces in pain and holds her side.

Echo of First Arcanist Thalyssra: Ngh… need to keep moving. Rath! Withered… I must be getting close. Rath-domaas! Stand down. Erasmus! Can you not see that Elisande has forsaken us?! An’ah! That will buy me some time.

Pulsing Arcane Echo revealed 1/1


NOTE: Attack Erasmus Moonblade (Second Blade of Elisande) who is trapped in a time trap.



Erasmus Moonblade: Die! Gah! A time stop spell… She will pay for that! This is not your business, outlander. Thalyssra has betrayed the Grand Magistrix and must be put down! Witness the power of the Nightborne! Who… are you?



First Arcanist Thalyssra found: 1/1
You are now Neutral with The Nightfallen.



First Arcanist Thalyssra: An outlander… you received my message?
