History

Swamp of Sorrows

WoW Icon update.png This section concerns content related to the original World of Warcraft.

He used to be a level 45 quest giver located in Itharius's Cave in the contested territory of Swamp of Sorrows. He appears as a high elf who dwells in a reasonably civilized cave near the perimeter of the swamp. Itharius seems almost to be 'baby sitting' a flock of rather cantankerous green whelps.

When the green dragons in the Temple of Atal'Hakkar were driven mad by both the Emerald Nightmare and the Atal'ai, Itharius called for help from the Cenarion Circle who in turn sent a force from the Alliance to clear the temple.[1]

Conversation with Itharius

Removed from game The subject of this section has been removed from World of Warcraft.

I know who you are, <name>. Fate and forces beyond that have brought you to me for a reason, and it is one I take no pleasure in being a part of. There are many decisions you will make in the coming times, and I hope you are wise enough to make the correct ones.

Believe me, <race>, when I tell you this - there are correct choices.

Gossip What's an elf like you doing inside a cave like this?

Itharius clasps.

You are quite inquisitive, though such inquisitiveness belies a general lack of understanding. I say this because were you to have a definite purpose in being here, the question you ask would seem pointless

With that, I bid you good day.

Gossip Do you know someone... or something, rather, by the name of Eranikus?

You know I do, mortal; I am abandoning a fair number of pretenses here, and I recommend you do the same.

You have come here clearly because you know that what you possess, garned from your actions within the Sunken Temple of the Atal'ai, has brought you to me for a purpose. The purpose is to put my associate... my brother, to rest. He is trapped within a nightmare within the Dream itself. He cannot break free alone.

Gossip What happened to him in the first place? When I... encountered him, he was rather malicious.

The god that the Atal'ai trolls had brought forth is to blame for this. We destroyed the god's physical manifestation and sunk the temple but the god was so much stronger than even we had anticipated. Its seed of corruption ran deep twisting everything in its path.

Eranikus was charged to watch over the sunken temple to ensure that neither the simple Atal'ai nor their god would rise again. He was an unwitting victim of this corruption, and we in underestimating its potency.

Gossip I possess part of Eranikus' essence. What do you want with it... or with me?

The fact that you are here is a first step... a correct choice if you will, in aiding Ysera's Dragonflight.

You may be here for purely the lure of personal gain, or you may be here because you are morally compelled. Neither reason is important on its own, but both are in fact critical to this end: The agony that Eranikus endures is what rousted me from my Dream, and it is now my charge to see his torment ended. I now ask you to aid me in this quest.

Gossip I will consider what you have told me.
  • Greatings, <race>. I am Lord Itharius of the green Dragonflight.

I am here to free my kin from the evil within this temple, hopefully for good. with you assist me?

Notes

  • He once bred and raised a unique breed of green dragons, that have since settled in the wilds of Feralas.[2]
