She was originally a member of the Kirin Tor of Dalaran, where her duties were to watch over the magical barriers protecting Atiesh, the legendary greatstaff of the final Guardian, Medivh. When the demon lord Archimonde destroyed Dalaran, the barriers were broken and Atiesh was shattered into many pieces. Dosantos left the Kirin Tor and began a search for the greatstaff which continues today. She first joined the Argent Dawn in order to help prevent Kel'Thuzad from gaining control of Atiesh, and has since been enrolled in the Brotherhood of the Light in order to pursue this goal more aggressively.
She also uses Cores of Elements in her creations. Players can turn in sets of 30 to her for an .

- Dialogue about Atiesh
- It is said that Kel'Thuzad seeks the legendary Atiesh, greatstaff of the Guardian.
- Yes, the very staff once held by Medivh.
What is Atiesh?
- Like Kel'Thuzad, I too was once a mage of the Kirin Tor. And like Kel'Thuzad, I seek the legendary Atiesh, greatstaff of the Guardian. Our fates are intertwined as such, <class>.
What Guardian? I don't understand any of this.
- Progeny of Aegwynn, he that would be the last Guardian of Tirisfal... Medivh..
- It is a story of legend and one that I do not have the time nor the inclination to retell. Just know that Medivh was the last of the Guardians. The greatstaff of Atiesh was a focal point of his power and a focal point of corruption.
- The corruption of a fallen titan. The corruption of the Destroyer. After all, the staff was forged from the seed of hate. That is, of course, what has brought me here...
- After the fall of Karazhan, the Kirin Tor dispatched an assembly of mages to search the tower and seize all items of import... for the purposes of "research." It was then that the fabled staff was discovered and brought back to Dalaran.
- What followed were a series of tragic events, leading to the death of every Kirin Tor mage that came into contact with Atiesh.
- You see, it was an artifact with sentience. A sentience granted to it by Sargeras...
- <Angela nods.>
- After the deaths, the Six decided that the best course of action was to seal the staff behind impenetrable barriers of magic and appoint a watcher: A guardian of the staff... I would be that watcher.
This is disturbing. Please continue.
- There is not much more to tell. Dalaran was nearly wholly destroyed by Archimonde, the staff lost, presumably shattered by the barrier's fail-safe mechanisms.
- There are those that believe the staff to be the cause of Archimonde's reprisal.
Please, tell me more.
- After the fall of Dalaran, I took my leave from the Kirin Tor. I spent years watching over Atiesh, only to have my purpose amongst the Kirin Tor taken away from me in one fell swoop. I would find the staff, though it might take a lifetime. That is how I came to join the Argent Dawn and why I am here now.
Is there anything else?
- I have tracked the various fragments of the staff across this world and in doing so, discovered Kel'Thuzad's plans to reform the staff. He has already collected several of the staff's fragments - which are being held by his most trusted lieutenants.
- I cannot emphasize enough the importance of keeping the greatstaff of the Guardian out of Kel'Thuzad's grasp. Frankly, I do not know what the result would be, other than a catastrophe of epic proportion.
- Core of elements
Where can I find core of elements?
Ah, a good question.
If you prefer hunting in the great outdoors, there are elementals here in the Plaguelands, Azshara, Burning Steppes, Felwood, Silithus, Winterspirng, and even Un'goro Crater.
If you are the type that laughs in the face of danger, then perhaps you should visit Dire Maul. I have heart that a great many elemental abberations[sic] exist within its walls. You would also do well in seeking out the elementals employed by the Dark Iron dwarves of Blackrock Depths.
- With Jessica

- Jessica Chambers says: Please let me know if you need anything else!
- Scarlet Commander Marjhan says: And I might add, that dress is lovely! You must tell me where you got it from.
- Archmage Angela Dosantos says: Indeed... Lovely dress, Jessica.
