A Prayer and a Wing

A winged visage? Could it be...?
<Name>, there's no time to waste. You may have been speaking to Aviana herself, trying to return to us.
I'll need something from Aviana's past to reach out to her. High atop the ridge overlooking this shrine, you'll find a series of huge nests belonging to Blaithe, an ancient bird of prey that was once her consort. For ten thousand years he's been mad with grief.
Go to one of his roosts, and use this call to summon him. Kill Blaithe and bring me one of his feathers.
("Blaithe: Use the Enormous Bird Call to summon Blaithe.")
Don't trouble yourself over Blaithe's condition. Grief robbed that creature of a soul epochs ago. He was but a shell of his former self, a beast of pure rage.
That was nasty work, <name>, but it had to be done.
And if Aviana is truly to be resurrected, then perhaps your actions have enabled Blaithe to someday come back as well?
Now let's see if we can contact our long lost guardian...
Roosts are at on the ridges north of the shrine. There is also a roost on the ridge to the southwest.
- Blaithe appears above your head with an ear-splitting caw!
- Choluna says: Mother of all winged creatures, hear my prayer and reveal yourself... a vision! What could this mean, <name>? I will report this to Omnuron.
- The Vision of Aviana's Egg suddenly appears.
- Vision of Sethria says: This is the one. The ancient will be ours.
- Vision of Sethria says: Take the others to the Firelands Hatchery! Soon we will possess the skies.
Skylord Omnuron offers the followup, , upon the completion of both this quest and , the conclusion of the Wormwing chain offered by Thisalee Crow.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Added.
