Meet Arcanist Ryanna in the Crimson Thicket.


I would be happy to introduce you to my new apprentice if you do not mind traveling a bit. She is currently in the field keeping an eye on an enclave of Felborne resistance fighters who have sworn loyalty to the Legion.

As the first nightborne to join the Tirisgarde, I am sure she is eager to prove her skills!


You will receive:

  • 19g 40s

I've heard so much about you, Archmage <name>. It is a pleasure to finally meet you!

Aethas Sunreaver says: I will open a portal to Arcanist Ryanna's location. One moment.
Talking with Aethas Sunreaver
With the Tirisgarde at the helm, our united forces will crush the Burning Legion once and for all!
Gossip Tell me more about Arcanist Ryanna
I discovered her quite by accident, really. Er, well, she discovered me.
I got myself into a bit of a... situation... with a harpy and a banshee, and... oh nevermind.
Anyway, Ryanna freed me with some very impressive spellwork. And then asked to join the Tirisgarde.
How could I turn her down?
Talking with Arcanist Ryanna
  • I have always found magic to be wondrous in all of its forms. Now that the shield has dropped, I cannot wait to master all of it!
  • The shal'dorei have been isolated for so many generations. We find it difficult to open our minds to new ways of thinking.
  • If my elders knew I was consorting with an outlander, I would be banished... Or worse.
Gossip How did you meet Aethas?
Oh! I came upon him in Tel'anor caught in a harpy's bonds without a stitch of clothing! Ha!
The harpy was so busy arguing with a banshee over who got to play with him first, that they did not notice me at all.
He looked terribly uncomfortable, so I intervened. And the rest is history!
