The seed is awakening. Without power it will quickly wither and die.

We must carry the seed out of here and plant it somewhere safe.

I am not strong enough to bear this burden. But you... you are brimming with power. I can sense it.

Please take the seed.


The following will be cast on you:

On accept:

Valewalker Farodin says: This passage will lead us out.

Follow Farodin to the Temple of Fal'adora. Upon entering it:

Valewalker Farodin says: Not far now.
Valewalker Farodin says: I know you have been rebuilding the old teleporters. The beacon here will connect us to your shal'dorei friends.

Activate the beacon.

Chief Telemancer Oculeth says: Ah, the Temple of Fal'adora. Those halls once glowed with prayers to Elune.
Chief Telemancer Oculeth says: I imagine it is less hospitable now. Hold still, I will get you out of there.

A permanent two-way portal to Shal'Aran will open, giving you credit for [Now You're Thinking With Portals].

Enter the portal. Farodin will run to the central platform of Shal'Aran, where there is an Ancient Seed Holder similar to the one on which the seed rested back in Moonshade Sanctum.

Valewalker Farodin says: Quickly, you must plant the seed!
Valewalker Farodin says: Place it here, where it can drink of the leyline.

On complete, a short cutscene plays, showing the case opening and the seed within blossoming into a sapling growing from the central platform. First Arcanist Thalyssra and Arcanist Valtrois run over to witness it while Chief Telemancer Oculeth teleports over.

Valewalker Farodin says: It is an arcan'dor - a gift of the ancient magi.
Valewalker Farodin says: A tree, made to feed upon the leyline. It can bring life... or desolation.
Oculeth teleports back to his spot.
Valewalker Farodin says: To care for the arcan'dor is a great burden - one which we now share.
(NOTE: Thalyssra's quote may bug out and not appear at all.)
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: We are masters of the arcane, night elf. I think we can handle a tree.
Valewalker Farodin says: Hmph. Arrogant. In time, you will see.
Valewalker Farodin says: Beneath the arcan'dor, you will be renewed. There is no other path now.
