Speak to Samaara at Embaari Village in Shadowmoon Valley.


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.


You will receive: 11g 80s


On accept (and any phase respawn):

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

On approach in Embaari:

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

On approach of Samaara in Embaari:

Yrel is bursting with joy to see her big sister.
Yrel says: Samaara! I'm back!
Samaara says: Yrel? After the Iron Horde took you, I feared the worst!
Yrel says: The light granted me strength when I needed it most. It is good to be home.


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.



Before heading out, pick up A [10-40] Migrant Workers and speak with Zipfizzle to start the caravan. Before doing that quest chain, work on this one.

If you have completed  [Draenor Pathfinder], go ahead and fly: Yrel will use a faerie dragon.

Follow the path south out of the garrison.

Yrel says: Your garrison is impressive, hero. Even draenei builders could not work so quickly.

Take the left fork, continuing southeast. Just past the fork is Taarvos, a merchant:

Yrel greets the man warmly as she rides up to him.
Yrel says: Hello Mister Taarvos!
Taarvos says: Yrel!?! Have you come back from the dead?
Yrel chuckes.
Yrel says: It will take more than some orcs to defeat me!

Next to Taarvos, a wanted poster calls for the death of Kuu'rat in A [10-40G3] WANTED: Kuu'rat's Tusks.

If you go near Anguish Fortress:

Yrel says: We will not be able to pass through their gates. If you wish to try, I will wait for you here.

Just outside the village on the Plains of Serenity is a small camp with Maami, Trapper Turannos, and Trapper Zera:

Maami says: Yrel! Is that you? You still owe me six copper!
Maami sounds somewhat annoyed.
Yrel says: What was that? I couldn't hear you! Quickly hero, let's go before she comes after me!

At the first fork of the village's ranches, children crowd around you and Yrel (this may bug out if you're not at a walking pace):

Draenei Child says: Yrel! She's come to save us!
Draenei Child says: She's back!
Draenei Child says: Yay! You're here!
Yrel greets the children warmly.
Yrel says: Good day, children! I've brought a hero from a far away land to meet you.
Draenei Child says: A hero! A hero!
Draenei Child says: Hello stranger!
Draenei Child says: The stranger will help us!
