For Queen and Grove!
After choosing to align yourself with the Night Fae Covenant, you returned to Ardenweald. There you were allowed entry into the Heart of the Forest. With many of Ardenweald's souls in attendance, you received the boon of Soulshape, the first of many gifts granted to those who join the covenant. You then learned that you had an important tradition to uphold: your grand introduction!
With the assistance of some friends, and a little bit of magic, you starred in a stage production recreating the dramatic events on Azeroth which led up to your arrival in the Shadowlands. Your performance impressed not only the Court of Night, but the Winter Queen as well.
Ysera, who was in the audience, learned that what she had thought were dreams and nightmares were visions of events on Azeroth. As she bore you to the Heart of the Forest, Ysera confided that she had also dreamed of Tyrande Whisperwind becoming the Night Warrior, and that she was concerned for the futures of both Tyrande and Ardenweald.
Now properly introduced to the Night Fae, you were formally bound to their covenant in a ceremony presided by the Winter Queen.
Highlord Bolvar Fordragon sent you into Torghast, Tower of the Damned to rescue Baine Bloodhoof from the clutches of Warden Arkoban.
With Baine safe in Oribos, you returned to Torghast with one of the Warden's keys to plunge further into the tower's depths. Your search brought you to a mysterious prisoner known as the Runecarver.
You recovered one of the Runecarver's memories from the Maw, then worked with Ve'nari to free one of his bonds. In exchange, the Runecarver has offered to help you craft powerful armor.
You returned to the Maw, where you reunited with the broker Ve'nari. By accepting the terms of her agreement, you procured a Soulkeeper crystal that allowed you to bring several lost souls out of the Maw. You also discovered that Baine Bloodhoof is being held prisoner in Torghast, the Tower of the Damned, but that you will need a plan of action before you can attempt to rescue him.
After you brought the rescued souls back to Ardenweald, you learned more about the Heart of the Forest and the powers that lie dormant within its roots. You were also granted the boon of Soulbinding and bound yourself to Niya.
Daughter of the Night Warrior
Ysera asked you to meet Shandris Feathermoon in Oribos and help her recover Tyrande Whisperwind from the Maw. You aided Shandris in tracking down Tyrande, whose Night Warrior powers had allowed her to carve a path of destruction through the Jailer's forces but also threatened to tear her apart.
The two of you followed Tyrande into Torghast. There, you witnessed the awesome power of the Night Warrior and rescued many captive kaldorei souls. Tyrande refused to return with you and Shandris, saying she would not stop until she had slain Sylvanas.
You returned to Ardenweald, where the souls you had freed would find peace. Ysera and Shandris vowed to find a way to save Tyrande from the all-consuming power of the Night Warrior.
You joined forces with Bwonsamdi to investigate the strange disappearances of several powerful nature spirits within Ardenweald. During your search, you uncovered a secret plot by the death loa Mueh'zala to awaken the evil loa Dambala and Hakkar into his service.
Realizing that he had no choice but to stand against his master, Bwonsamdi asked you to beseech the Winter Queen for her aid. Upon hearing of Mueh'zala's treachery, the Queen dispatched the Wild Hunt to rid the forest of Mueh'zala's minions. Fighting alongside your fellow huntsmen and huntresses, you defeated Dambala and drove Mueh'zala's followers out of Ardenweald.
Night Warrior's Curse
Ysera told you of Thiernax, a mortal soul in Ardenweald who had been his world's Night Warrior in life. You met Thiernax and learned that the tremendous power of the Night Warrior had killed both him and his husband, Qadarin. While fighting malicious spriggan in the Garden of Night, Qadarin was afflicted with a terrible curse.
Moonberry had you retrieve information on how to counter the curse while Qadarin could still be saved. Following the scroll's instructions, you acquired what was needed--including a token that symbolized the deep love between Ysera and her sister, Alexstrasza--and broke the curse on Qadarin. Grateful for your help, Thiernax pledged his support to help save Tyrande from the tragic fate of the Night Warrior.
Drust to Drust
You helped Ara'lon rescue Gweyir, a Possessed huntress, and were sent to Drustvar in search of a way to break the curse placed upon her. You returned with a powerful Drust fetish and instructions to seek out Kivarr, an ancient Thornspeaker.
Your search for Kivarr led you to Eventide Grove, where the Drust had taken her captive. Following her rescue, Kivarr sent you and Ara'lon to find special reagents for a ritual to break the curse. Unfortunately, Ara'lon never returned and you were sent to fulfill the mission in his place.
Though you and Kivarr performed the ritual, you were unable to break the curse. Gweyir perished, proving that there is no coming back for the fae who fall under the Drust's thrall.
The Horned Hunter
Thiernax shared with you a possible way to save Tyrande from the fate of the Night Warrior: dispersing its power into other former Night Warriors whose souls now rested in the Shadowlands. To find them, Lord Herne of the Wild Hunt suggested you seek the famed Horned Hunter, Huln Highmountain.
Huln agreed to help you search the Shadowlands for the other Night Warriors, but he first had to finish hunting his assigned quarry. You assisted Huln in tracking down a massive devourer, a worldeater named Voras. You and Huln set a trap for your prey and then vanquished it. True to his word, Huln began his search for others who had once borne the mantle of the Night Warrior.
Deal for a Loa
At his necropolis in Nazmir, Bwonsamdi revealed to both you and Vol'jin that Mueh'zala was the one who had tricked Vol'jin into naming Sylvanas warchief and that he had cast an ancient nature spirit into the Maw.
With Vol'jin's help, you rescued not just the spirit--the wild god Ashamane--but the loa Hir'eek and Shadra as well. You also found Rezan, but were too late to save him. The loa of kings transferred the last of his essence into Vol'jin.
Upon your return, the Winter Queen was intrigued that Vol'jin's mortal soul held the remnants of a loa. Though she could not guarantee what fate awaited him, the Queen allowed Vol'jin to slumber within a wildseed alongside the other spirits.
Drust and Ashes
Alongside the Wild Hunt, you assaulted the last Drust stronghold in Ardenweald and faced off against their leader, Gorak Zhar. But when the final blow was struck, you learned that you had been fighting a possessed and glamoured Ara'lon. With his last breath, Ara'lon warned you that the stronghold was a diversion and that the Drust's true target was the Grove of Awakening.
Ysera bore you back to the Heart of the Forest as she inflicted everlasting sleep on as much of the Drust army as she could. Moved by the loss of yet another loyal servant, the Winter Queen brought her precious power to bear. Bolstered by the Queen's blessing, you reclaimed the Grove of Awakening and defeated Gorak Zhar, ending her attempts to conquer Ardenweald.
