Sanath Lim-yo is a blood elf located east of Valormok in Azshara. At one point in time, he asked travelers to prove themselves worthy of seeing his master, Archmage Xylem. Since patch 1.7, his master stopped him from charging and now allows anyone to teleport, free of any obligations. He doesn't like the travelers that speak with him and bores easily with many things.

Hallow's End

He is seen in either Stormwind City or in the Ruins of Lordaeron during the quest B [1-60] The Collector's Agent, and adventurers must find out what his intentions are.


Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

During the Burning Legion's third invasion, he became a member of Xylem's inner circle. When the adventurer confronted the corrupted archmage, he sent his apprentici to deal with them. When Sanath was defeated, a shadow emerged from him and he came to his senses. He urged them to follow the archmage through the portal, but it closed.[1]

Post patch 1.7 gossip

There was a time when I could ask whatever I wished from those who sought out my master. But now, he takes pretty much anyone in as an apprentice and they can pass through his portals all they please.

It is upsetting to me, but I do not question his orders. I can only take enjoyment in making fun of the ridiculous clothes you wear or the pathetic look on your face. Even that bores me...

Even this rambling bores me! Go. Be gone. Share your depressing sense of style with someone else.
