Speak with Jaina in Forlorn Respite to learn what she knows about the Maw.


Anduin insisted that our allies would come for us. I confess I had begun to doubt him.

I'm sure you have many questions. I'll do what I can to provide answers, but I'm afraid even after...

What has it been... weeks? Longer? Time loses all meaning in a place of such darkness.

Forgive me. Let me tell you what little I can.


You will receive:

  • 11g 70s
  • 3,400 XP


I will tell you what I can.


I need time to recover after that battle. Thrall could use rest, too.

While we rest, perhaps you and Mograine can seek answers.


Speak with Jaina:

I know this... place... is a lot to take in.
Take a moment to gather yourself. When you are ready, I'll tell you what I know.

Gossip Tell me about this place.

Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Very well... where to begin?
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Denizens call this realm "the Maw." From what I have gathered, it was intended as a prison for the most foul, irredeemable souls that ever existed.
Thrall says: Something has changed. Pure, noble souls are being held captive here as well. They cry out in torment.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Indeed. And one of their tormentors--and ours--is Sylvanas Windrunner.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: It seems she has made a powerful ally. The shades whisper of someone called... the Jailer.
Projections of Mawsworn Guards, the Jailer, and Sylvanas appear.

Speak with Jaina again:

What answers do you seek?

Gossip Tell me more of the Jailer.

Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: The Jailer rules this realm. We know little about him, but it's clear he has taken a special interest in us.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: He has personally overseen our... treatment here.
Thrall says: We have endured countless torments. At times, it felt as if we were being tested. Though for what purpose, I cannot say.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Whatever this Jailer and the Banshee are planning, it won't end well... for any of us.
Projections of Baine and Mawsworn Harbingers appear.

Continue speaking with Jaina:

What answers do you seek?

Gossip What about the others who were taken?

Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: I caught glimpses of Baine and Anduin during my attempts to break free. They live... that's all I know for certain.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: But I have found no means of leaving the Maw. I can only manage to teleport short distances. This nightmare feels... inescapable.
Highlord Darion Mograine says: Countless souls are now pouring into this realm. But some have been here for untold ages. Perhaps one of them knows a way out.
Darion approaches a Tormented Soul.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: I can scarcely imagine the horrors such spirits have endured. I fear there's nothing left of them to save.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: They manifest as malevolent shades that wander the darkness. I doubt they'd willingly help us.
Projections of more Tormented Souls and a Malice Shadow appear.
Highlord Darion Mograine says: Knights of the Ebon Blade have ways to compel the dead to speak. If we seize one of them, we can extract its secrets.
