Seek out Nordu, an Ancient of Lore, at the Flamewake in Mount Hyjal.


You have awakened the ancients, <name>, but the wilderness spirit Aessina remains silent. With her help, we can turn the tide of this attack and undo the damage Twilight's Hammer has done.

There may be one who can help us. The oldest of the trees, Nordu, stood in the center of what is now the Flamewake for thousands of years. His wisdom is as old as this mountain. If that old tree still lives, perhaps he can awaken Aessina... seek him out.


I ... have not yet ... perished.


Nordu is just north of the Sanctuary of Malorne on a rise east of Tortolla. He is being pestered by Fiery Tormentors.

If you did not accept the quest from Ysera when she showed up at the Shrine of Aviana, you can find her back at Nordrassil.
