Assist Thisalee in the defense of the Shrine of Aviana in Hyjal

  • Help Defend the Shrine of Aviana


The situation is dire. The Legion is attacking the Shrine of Aviana in Hyjal, AGAIN! They must be after something specific, but I'm not sure what.

Us Druids of the Talon are skilled scouts and infiltrators, but are lacking in... durability. They won't be able to hold out for long! We must go to help!


What are you waiting for?! Get to the Shrine of Aviana in Hyjal!


The Legion will pay for what we've lost today. We escaped with as many of us as we could, but too many died in vain, trying to protect the Shrine and the Idol of Aviana, which was lost anyway, thanks to that demon scum, Shadegrove.


If Alliance, go to Stormwind and take the portal to Mount Hyjal at the Eastern Earthshrine. If Horde, go to Orgrimmar and use the Mount Hyjal portal at the Western Earthshrine.

Once you're at Nordrassil, fly to the Shrine of Aviana.

Stage 1: Report to the Shrine

Fight your way through the demons and enter the building to speak to Skylord Shadegrove.

The mighty Legion has attacked, and we are barely holding off their siege.
Gossip How can we help?

Stage 2: Defend the Shrine

  • Kill demons attacking the Shrine
Skylord Shadegrove says: You're ordered to report to the battlefield at once. Take out those demons shredding our front lines!

Kill any demons you see until the tracker bar is filled to 100%.

Stage 3: Return to the Shrine

  • Shrine investigated
Thisalee Crow says: Did you hear that? Screams from the shrine! We've gotta get back there!

Shift into [Travel Form] to return more quickly to the building.

Stage 4: Uncover the Traitor

  • Traitor revealed
Skylord Shadegrove says: Perish before the might of the Legion!
Skylord Shadegrove reveals his true appearance as the nathrezim Infazzar the Shade.
Thisalee Crow says: You wretched... No! The idol!
Infazzar the Shade takes the Idol of Aviana and escapes.
Thisalee Crow says: Noooo!

Final Stage: Return to the Dreamgrove

Thisalee Crow says: The shrine is lost. Druids, take flight! Retreat!
Thisalee Crow says: What the... Flight Form's not working?! With the idol gone, we've lost our wings! Everyone teleport out and regroup at the Dreamgrove!

Use [Dreamwalk] to enter the Emerald Dreamway, then take the portal to the Dreamgrove. Thisalee will be at the far back of the northwestern corner in the class hall.
