Escort Thalyssra to safety.

  • Thalyssra escorted to shelter


I have much to tell you, but it is not safe to speak here. I cannot hold this barrier forever.

<Thalyssra lifts a delicate flask to her lips. Her eyes shimmer as she takes a sip.>

If we push through, we may find shelter up ahead.

You fight well.

Perhaps it is time for a proper introduction.


On accept, Thalyssra drops the barrier.

First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Rath-anu'tanos!
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: We must take care. The withered ones prowl this area, ravenous in their hunger for magic and flesh alike.
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Such is the fate of nightborne who cannot drink of the Nightwell.
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: This is my fate as well.. unless...
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Look out!
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: E'rath omnas!

A group of Withered appears and assaults the barrier. There is no need to go out and kill them — just target the ones that are actively interfering with the barrier, which will damage the ones that launch themselves at it.

Barrier assaulted
  • First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Get them off the barrier!
  • First Arcanist Thalyssra says: The barrier is being drained!

After the Withered die, Thalyssra moves on, still projecting her barrier. Follow her and stay inside.

First Arcanist Thalyssra says: My strength is fading... we must find shelter...

Eventually, she stops again.

First Arcanist Thalyssra says: <cough> I... need a moment...

Keep the Withered off the barrier, like the first time.

First Arcanist Thalyssra says: There are so many...

Thalyssra passes across the stream to an entrance leading underground — to Shal'Aran. The Withered stop on the other side.

First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Strange. Why do they not follow?

Thalyssra kills the remaining Withered with arcane blasts, then runs inside and kneels down.

First Arcanist Thalyssra says: <cough>... I need to rest...
