Find Leyara, the Druid of the Flame.


Before we depart, <name>, I have another matter to which you should attend.

A Druid of the Flame has been spotted in the ruins to the northwest[7.1, 34.3]
. I suspect it is the same one that attacked us at the portal several days ago. Now would be an ideal time to see what it is that she truly wants... and if necessary, dispose of her.

See to this flame druid, then we can continue on our planned course.


<Matoclaw listens intently as you explain what happened.>

<She is visibly distressed.>

You deviated from our plan, <name>. Our attack was supposed to happen today! All this preparation... how will we succeed without the aid of Hamuul?


You will receive:


After confrontation with Leyara, the player is bound by her roots. Hamuul arrives, and the confrontation begins.

Leyara says: It is already determined. You have no hope... the flames shall consume all!
Hamuul says: You... you're the one from the portal... the druid of flame...
Hamuul says: You killed dozens of my students. You will pay for what you've done.
Leyara says: Enough of this!

Leyara roots Hamuul and fire erupts everywhere.

Hamuul says: What is this? I... can't move! Someone, help!

Leyara begins burning Hamuul, who is helpless to defend himself due to her magic.

Leyara yells: Burn, tauren! BURN!
Leyara says: Have you had enough yet? Have you felt enough pain?

Leyara addresses the player after Hamuul collapses.

Leyara says: Now, look before you! One of Azeroth's most powerful "druids", reduced to nothing but a charred husk. Such is the will of Fandral Staghelm. Such is the will of the flame!
Leyara says: Go on, then. Weep over the body of your precious tauren... though I assure you that your tears will not bring him back.

The player is freed from her roots after she escapes. The Hyjal Protector arrives on the scene.

Hyjal Protector says: What... what has happened?
Hyjal Protector says: <Name>, I will attend to the Arch Druid. Malfurion and Matoclaw have requested your presence immediately.
