In Dalaran.

Magister Hathorel is a blood elf in service to the Sunreavers. He plays a role in the restoration of Quel'Delar, and later survived the Purge of Dalaran. He took up arms with the Sunreaver Onslaught on the Isle of Thunder.


Hathorel battled on Quel'Danas during the Scourge invasion of Quel'Thalas. He witnessed the fall of the elves' great king, Anasterian Sunstrider, after the dread power of Frostmourne overpowered  [Felo'melorn] in their vicious clash. Hathorel wished to fight on, but knew in his heart that the battle was lost.[1]

Wrath of the Lich King

Hathorel can be found in the Filthy Animal in Dalaran. He is eager to reclaim a tome called  [Ancient Dragonforged Blades], which contains information on  [Quel'Serrar] and Quel'Delar. The tome was taken from the Wyrmrest Temple by members of the Silver Covenant, so Magister Hathorel disguises adventurers as members of the Silver Covenant in order to get it back.

During the Purge of Dalaran, Hathorel was held captive by the Silver Covenant. On Rommath's orders, he was freed by a Horde adventurer and was said to go to Silvermoon City.

Hathorel accompanies the Sunreaver Onslaught to the Isle of Thunder. When Dawnseeker's Promontory is established, he and Girana the Blooded will dispense missions to Horde heroes from the command map.

Battle for Azeroth

In the Underhold.

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

Hathorel reappeared within the Underhold, ambushing the imprisoned Baine Bloodhoof's rescue party. He had done so to get revenge upon Jaina Proudmoore for the purge of Dalaran, and was unwilling to leave his vendetta with her alone - he would have Jaina watch her friends die, as he had done. Hathorel empowered Baine's chains but was fought and defeated. He immersed himself in an ice block before falling, surviving the encounter while a freed Baine and the others were teleported to safety by Jaina.[2]

  • Although he is a Sunreaver, he is always neutral to those even exalted with the faction in Dalaran. The reason for this is that he is an objective for an Alliance quest.
    • During the purge of Dalaran, he is tagged with the faction.


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

As he actively tried to kill Thrall and sought to keep Baine imprisoned until his execution, Hathorel may have left the Horde to join Sylvanas rather than trust the calls for unity and clemency by the Horde Council.
