Ishanah in World of Warcraft.

Ishanah was approached by Maiev Shadowsong to gain the Aldor's aid against the armies of Illidan Stormrage. Ishanah was critical of the renegade warden and her motives, believing her mission was rooted more in a personal lust for vengeance than a true desire to see justice done; Ishanah decided that Maiev would receive no help from her people. Further, Ishanah unsettled the warden with the assertion that not everyone must enter the darkness to fight against it. Maiev left the Aldor Rise furious.[2]

She will give you one Inv misc dust 06 [Holy Dust] for each Inv misc desecrated plategloves [Fel Armament] you turn in to her. At some point, she sent Exarch Orelis and a small group of anchorites to Netherstorm in order to investigate the activities of Kael'thas and his minions.[3]

She also briefly appears at Socrethar's Seat in Netherstorm, telling Socrethar to take her instead of Kaylaan. However, Socrethar immediately killed her. After seeing this, Kaylaan the Lost resurrected her only for Socrethar to kill him. She then helped the Aldor forces to kill Socrethar. After the battle, she tried to revive Kaylaan but was unable.[4]

Shortly after the Cataclysm, she traveled to Darnassus and took the place of the Prophet Velen to represent the draenei in the final vote to include Gilneas and the worgen into the Alliance.[5]

Ishanah traveled to the Netherlight Temple to return Saa'ra to the Light and joins the Conclave there.[6]

She participated in the Battle for the Exodar battling against High General Rakeesh, along with Calia Menethil.

She later serves as the innkeeper on the Vindicaar.

When Magni Bronzebeard called upon the champions of the Armies of Legionfall to draw the corruption out of the Sword of Sargeras, Ishanah carried Inv mace 1h artifactheartofkure d 01 [T'uure, Beacon of the Naaru] if the player was not a priest, representing the Conclave.[7]

After Archbishop Alonsus Faol brought Calia Menethil's dead body to Saa'ra, Ishanah told King Anduin that her body didn't decompose and that the naaru asked for him.[8]

Welcome, <name>. We are the Aldor, priests of the Light and servants of the Sha'tar.

You are welcome to stay with us for as long as you need.

Gossip Who are the Sha'tar?

"Born from light" would be a close translation for Sha'tar. It is the name we gave to the naaru who reclaimed Shattrath City from the agents of Illidan.

Gossip Isn't Shattrath a draenei city? Why do you allow others here?

Shattrath is more than a staging ground for war against the Burning Legion and Illidan. It serves as a sanctuary to those seeking to escape the violence surrounding us.
We would be hypocrites if we turned the refugees away.
If your question refers to the Scryers, then I will respond that while I may not like them or their leader's wild claims of visions of redemption, it is not for us to question the wisdom of the naaru.
These are difficult times, <name>. We need allies where we can find them.

  • Your efforts to restore Saa'ra have not gone unnoticed. As a humble servant of the Sha'tar, I thank you. As leader of the Aldor, it is my duty to safeguard all that is holy. This temple is a beacon of light that must be protected. You can count me among your allies, willing to do whatever is necessary to destroy the Burning Legion.[9]

  • A'dal, grant us strength!
  • The Light shines upon us!
  • The naaru are with us always!


Normal gossip

Please, sit and make yourself comfortable.

You're still here?

<Ishanah looks at you quizzically.>

It's over. Go home.

<Ishanah waves you away.>



"The Light cleanses all."[10]

Battle info[]

She casts Spell holy holysmite [Smite] which hits for about 1200-1300 damage and Spell holy powerwordshield [Power Word: Shield] to heal herself. She can be feared and interrupted. Killing her does not yield reputation with the Scryers.


  • Ishanah is voiced by Erin Fitzgerald in Legion.[11]
  • Her name bears some resemblance to the arabic word, إن شاء الله, "inshallah", which means "if God wills it". Her religious attitude also hints that some inspiration came from there.
    • Alternatively, her name is derived from the name aspect of Shiva, Ishana (Sanskrit Īśāna).
