Arei in his ghost form

Arei was an Ancient of War quest giver located in Irontree Woods in Felwood.

He appeared when you play the Inv misc flute 01 [Flute of the Ancients] in Irontree Woods.[49, 31]VZ-FelwoodBlip

WoW-novel-logo-16x62 This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

During the War Against the Nightmare, Arei battled the Emerald Nightmare from within the Emerald Dream together with Zaetar and other guardians of nature. Arei finds and helps Broll Bearmantle inside the Dream and then leads him to Zaetar, who's in charge of the defenders' resistance.[1]



  • Although Arei appeared as a spirit during his escort quest in Felwood, he has somehow entered the Emerald Dream physically to battle the Emerald Nightmare as described in Stormrage. How Arei managed this feat remains to be explained.
