The Shadow Wardens are back in the Regrowth. I know that they take the loss of Fandral from their custody very seriously, so it wouldn't take much prodding to bring them to the Firelands to hunt the Druids of the Flame, and perhaps aid us otherwise in the process.

Should you come upon enough marks, you should seek out Captain Saynna Stormrunner at the Sanctuary of Malorne and secure her aid.


You will receive: 18 Gold.png 80 Silver.png


Yes, <class>?


I see. It is time for us to join the hunt in the Firelands then. My sisters will be with you, <class>.


You will receive:


There are three or four dailies at the breach (worth 6/8 marks) and a few more back at the Sanctuary of Malorne (worth 6 marks). This will take up to two weeks to complete.

On complete:

Captain Saynna Stormrunner says: Our original duty binds us to defend this land, but if Fandral has indeed escaped to the Firelands, then we must bring him to justice.
Captain Saynna Stormrunner says: Sisters, show yourselves. The time for subtlety is past. We will face our enemies in the Plane of Fire.
Several Shadow Wardens destealth.
Captain Saynna Stormrunner says: See you on the field of battle, <brother/sister>.
The wardens teleport out.

Matoclaw offers the followup quest, Neutral 15.png [85] The Hunt Begins, directing players back through the portal to the Molten Front.
