Shortly after the Shattering, she could again be found keeping watch on the same tower, this time taken over by Helix Gearbreaker and a group of suspicious mercenaries.

Amber was a member of an elite squad sent to Pandaria to search for the lost fleet and recover the White Pawn. Shortly after arrival her plane crashed in Jade Forest. She barely survived, rejoining the hunt for the White Pawn without hesitation despite her injuries. She followed the team to the north - to Serpent's Heart, Lair of the Jade Witch and Grookin Hill, where she provided cover fire for Sully. After finding Anduin, Amber accompanied Sully to take the prince into custody, however, Anduin mind controlled Sully and escaped.

Soon after, Alliance SI:7 agents and Jinyu began preparations for a battle against the Horde and the Forest Hozen. Amber and Jinyu were able to retake Slingtail Pits for the Alliance, allowing the pits to be used for combat training purposes.

For a time after the battle at Serpent's Heart, her fate was unknown and suspected to be missing in action. She did not follow her SI:7 colleagues to Kun-Lai Summit, and Admiral Taylor told adventurers "we lost some good people"[6] without mentioning specific names. However, according to a reliable source,[7] rumours of her demise have turned out to be greatly exaggerated.


After the landing of Alliance forces on Krasarang Wilds and the construction of Lion's Landing, she can be found in the base directing the war effort for Sky Admiral Rogers and also helping defend Lion's Landing against the Horde.


Amber and Sully discovered in Dun Morogh that Zandalari trolls threatened Ironforge.

Before committing regular forces to the assault on Durotar, King Varian has sent SI:7 agents Amber Kearnen and Sully McLeary outside of Orgrimmar to scout out a naval landing site, learn the enemy’s weaknesses, and give Alliance landing forces any advantage they can find. After discovering a Horde civil war, and rescuing a captured troll named Zen'tabra, an Alliance champion was sent as an envoy and established an alliance with the Darkspear Rebellion. With a little deft political maneuvering, the Alliance champion was able to secure a potential Alliance beach landing and ensured that trolls and orcs kill one another up and down Durotar.

Siege of Orgrimmar

Amber and her comrades battled the Kor'kron soldiers in the Underhold during the Siege of Orgrimmar. She was also seen in Celestial Tournament on the Timeless Isle along with her comrades.

Amber found dead in the Dalaran sewers.

Amber is found dead, with the knife still embedded in her back, in the sewers of Dalaran, clutching a  [SI:7 Missive]. The Uncrowned attempt to handle the situation before SI:7 finds out about it and links them to the murder. Lord Jorach Ravenholdt, believing that SI:7 has been acting oddly lately, uses Amber's death as a motivator to have the Uncrowned scout them out.[4][8] The Uncrowned discovers that Amber's death was ordered by Master Mathias Shaw himself.[9] The Uncrowned later learned that it was actually Detheroc disguised as Shaw who ordered Kearnen's death, and the letter she held revealed that Shaw had been kidnapped and impersonated by the dreadlord.[3]

Though she would not live to see it, Amber's missive allowed the Uncrowned to rescue Shaw and return him to his rightful place in Stormwind.[10]
