Tyrathan's superior, Bolten Vanyst, had him lead a squad of scouts to Serpent's Heart and report back within three hours. The team was ambushed by sha, which killed all the hunters and their pets, including Tyrathan's friend Larsi. Tyrathan was the only survivor, though with a broken leg, and dragged himself through the forest feeding on whatever plants he could find until he was found by Chen Stormstout and brought to the Shado-pan Monastery.
Tyrathan was tasked by the Shado-Pan to tend to Vol'jin, who was also recovering at the Monastery after being betrayed by the Horde. Despite nearly being polar opposites, Tyrathan and Vol'jin slowly became friends as they had similar near-death experiences in Pandaria. The two of them worked together to defend Zouchin Village from Zandalari forces led by Khal'ak. Tyrathan and Chen would also face a group of Zandalari scouts in the wilds of Kun-Lai Summit.
When Tyrathan, Chen, Vol'jin, and a squad of Shado-Pan entered the Vale of Eternal Blossoms to stop the revival of Warlord Kao, Vol'jin was suddenly captured by the Zandalari and brought to the Isle of Thunder. Despite Vol'jin seemingly leaving them to join the Zandalari, his friend saved Tyrathan and the others and they left the island. Returning to Kun-Lai, Tyrathan helped defend the Shado-Pan Monastery against a Zandalari attack as part of The Thirty-three.
Mortally wounded by a mogu spear in the battle, Vol'jin decided to save his life by calling upon Bwonsamdi to return his spirit. Bwonsamdi agreed, given the large number of Zandalari souls to heal him.
