Adventure Guide

These[sic] origins of these arachnid demons are not fully understood - scholars who have studied the Legion speculate that they are the remnants of a forgotten race on a world long ago conquered by the armies of Sargeras. Sael'orn is a particularly vicious specimen, and has been tasked with leading the infiltration of Dalaran.


Sael'orn pulls her enemies close to her while attacking them with viscious short ranged attacks. Periodically, her invulnerable phase spider guardians join the fight, attacking enemies foolish enough to turn their backs.

In Hearthstone

Hearthstone This section contains information exclusive to Hearthstone and is considered non-canon.

Sael'orn appears as one of the bosses that can be encountered in the Dalaran Heist single-player experience in the Rise of Shadows expansion for Hearthstone.


  • Her original Adventure Guide description was: "Sael'orn has toiled away in her web lair waiting for the opportunity to play with and feed on the inhabitants of Azeroth. Now with Legion's invasion begun, she finally has an opportunity to play".
    • This may refer to a web-filled cave seen in the scenario version of Violet Hold (e.g. N Hunter [45] In Defense of Dalaran).

Patch changes

  • Legion Hotfix (2016-09-13): Sael'orn will no long aggro players immediately when she spawns.
  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Added.
