Return to Meryl Felstorm in the Hall of the Guardian.


Portals? Teleportation? You bet I can help you out with that! I mean, how do you think I pull the rabbit out of..., you didn't hear that.

Anyway, I can help you move your mages around, if the price is right. Heck I can even teach those combat mages a thing or two. Ever been on the receiving end of an exploding bunny? It ain't pretty!

For starters, let me whip up a portal to take us to this hall you're talking about.


You will receive:

  • 1g 54s
  • 1500 XP


I understand he may be unconventional, but I think this goblin is exactly what we'll need to quickly get this new Tirisgarde up to snuff for the task at hand.

I've already sent word to many talented mages who can help. They await transportation to the Hall, where they can begin their new purpose.

Shall we?


Take the portal to the other side to save some travel time, as it drops players off closer to Meryl.

Quest accept
The Great Akazamzarak says: Alright, let's see if I can get a portal through those wards you're talkin' about.
The Great Akazamzarak says: Piece of cake! See you on the other side!
On the other side
The Great Akazamzarak says: Nice place you got here.
Quest completion
Meryl Felstorm says: Alright, Akazamzarak, you have the locations. Do you think you can manage the portals?
The Great Akazamzarak says: No sweat, chum. I'll get your mages here in a jiffy!
Akazamzarak opens eight portals at once, to Exodar, Ironforge, four to Dalaran, Orgrimmar, and the Borean Tundra.
The Great Akazamzarak says: Portals are good to go, boss! Now if you don't mind, I'm gonna check out the digs here...
Akazamzarak wanders off as Edirah, Juli Stormkettle, Archmage Vargoth, Archmage Modera, Archmage Kalec, Archmage Melis, Uthel'nay, and Magister Varenthas step out of their respective portals.
Meryl Felstorm says: Mages of Azeroth! I have brought you here to face a threat to the future of the world itself!
Meryl Felstorm says: The dreadlord Kathra'natir has escaped into the Twisting Nether, and he carries with him the secrets of the Council of Tirisfal.
Meryl Felstorm says: We must hunt him down in the Twisting Nether. Only then will we know his knowledge cannot be used against us.
Meryl Felstorm says: It is to this aim, that I hereby reform the Tirisgarde. I would ask that you join us in taking arms against the Legion! Are you with us?!
The assembled mages cheer in approval.
Meryl Felstorm says: It is done, then.

Speak with Meryl to continue.
