Mists of Pandaria This section concerns content related to Mists of Pandaria.

In Pandaria, Wrathion made his base in the Tavern in the Mists, from where he directed his operations across the continent. Therefore, he sent Blacktalon Agents and Blacktalon Watchers on secret missions at several locations, notably the Jade Forest, the Valley of the Four Winds, and Kun-Lai Summit. Among the agents, some of them were bringing messages to others, some were excavating at various locations (often proceeding to speak rather cryptically to one another), while the others were moving around stealthed throughout the continent.

Warlords of Draenor This section concerns content related to Warlords of Draenor.

At the time of the war in Draenor, Wrathion and his underlings left the Veiled Stair.[1]

Battle for Azeroth This section concerns content related to Battle for Azeroth.

As of the Fourth War, Wrathion's Blacktalon operatives still served him.

After finding an Unscarred Black Scale from a young black dragon while on an island expedition, the adventurer knew that Wrathion would want to hear about it and sought him out at Blackrock Mountain. Though Wrathion was not there himself, one of his Blacktalon Agents was. She revealed to the adventurer that Wrathion was searching for the Dragon Isles and that other dragons had not been forthcoming in information.[2] One of them was also the former lair of Deathwing, observing as another uncorrupted black dragon, Ebyssian, took an essence of the black dragonflight's magic to help heal the world.[3] More Blacktalon Watchers could be found in Nazjatar.

After the end of the war, Wrathion sent them after N'Zoth but to no avail.[4]
