First Arcanist Thalyssra: Without the Nightwell to feed upon, my comrades and I will have to live off the land itself. Ancient mana from the underground leylones can reach the surface in many forms, most commonly as crystals of gems.

(Thalyssra picks up a small stone and whispering words of power, traces a rune upon it with her fingertip.)

This stone will glow when ancient mana is nearby. Please gather as much as possible! It will be a precious resource in the weeks to come.



Quest Objectives

Gather from 3 Ancient Mana nodes.

Chief Telemancer Oculeth: We must lock down the facility. Otherwise my esteemed colleagues from the palace could uncover my secrets, which puts any teleporters I build for you and Thalyssra at risk.

(The inactive attunement device near Oculeth hums to life.)

This will take us to my secret test chamber beneath the mountain. From there we can begin the lockdown sequence and make our escape!



Quest Objectives

Complete the lockdown sequence in Oculeth’s Test Chamber.

Chief Telemancer Oculeth: I hadn’t the time to gather my instruments before fleeing the palace. I came here to salvage some equipment. This old workshop is actually several rooms connected by teleporter pads. Elisande’s goons are already scouring the place looking for me, but from here I can after the teleporter network and keep there moving in circles. You go in. I’ll monitor your position and ensure the teleporters work normally for you. Find these two parts and bring them back!

First Arcanist Thalyssra: We need to make contact with Chief Telemancer Oculeth, the man who developed Suramar’s teleportation network. Oculeth had a workshop in old Suramar, from the age before the Sundering. He may be taking refuge there.

(Thalyssra presses a small coin into your palm.)

If you find him, show him this. Hopefully you see him before he sees you.

First Arcanist Thalyssra: My people have subsisted on the Nightwell for milennia. Ancient mana is our lifeblood – without it, we become…. well, you saw them out there.

(Thalyssra holds her flask aloft, gently shaking free the last precious drops.)

I’m afraid I have been rather reckless today. Already, my senses are dulling. Without magic to feed upon, I will turn. Please… find me something to feed upon… anything.



Quest Objectives

Enter Shal’Aran and find something to sate Thalyssra’s thirst.

First Arcanist Thalyssra: I have much to tell you, but it is not safe to speak here. I cannot hold this barrier forever.

(Thalyssra lifts a delicate flask to her lips. Her eyes shimmer as she takes a sip.)

If we push through, we may find shelter up ahead.



Quest Objectives

Escort Thalyssra to safety.

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.
