<After bringing Illidan's crystal to the Well of Eternity, you feel a sense of satisfaction. As if a circle is now completed.
Whether he was a hero or a betrayer... both or neither... Illidan has a duty to fulfill.
As do you.>
- Illidan Stormrage says: The moment that the way to Argus opened... the instant my gaze fell upon the Legion's home world... I knew I would not be returning from it.
- Illidan Stormrage says: I will face my destiny, whatever it may hold. Yet... I have left certain matters unsettled... old wounds that I would see mended.
- Illidan Stormrage says: This crystal bears two messages. One is for my brother Malfurion, the other for Tyrande. I am trusting you to deliver them on my behalf, champion.
- Illidan Stormrage says: When they have heard my words, leave the crystal atop Mount Hyjal, upon the shores of the Well of Eternity.
- Illidan Stormrage says: You have witnessed echoes of my past, hero. I ask your help to put these final matters to rest.
- Malfurion Stormrage (located in Lorlathil in Val'sharah)
- Malfurion Stormrage says: The soul of our world is in agony...
The world cries out to us, <name>. We must fight to save it.
- Illidan requested that I bring this crystal to you.
- Malfurion Stormrage says: The crystal... it rings out with a familiar voice.
- Illidan Stormrage says: Malfurion... Even in the womb, we grappled with one another. Struggle has followed us all our lives.
- Illidan Stormrage says: The teachings of Cenarius were always your path. I felt... another calling.
- Illidan Stormrage says: It was power I sought... but not to conquer or rule. It was a means to an end... to save Azeroth from an unstoppable foe.
- Illidan Stormrage says: You never trusted my intentions... though I suppose I did not make it easy for you.
- Illidan Stormrage says: But now, as my fate becomes clear, I wish to quiet the strife that has long divided us.
- Illidan Stormrage says: Even when the Legion is gone, new threats will arise. There is no one I trust to face them more than you, brother.
- Illidan Stormrage says: You have spent a lifetime fighting for the dream of what Azeroth could be. Now you must fight for what it is.
- Illidan Stormrage says: Take care of Tyrande. Listen to her counsel. She was always the best of us.
- Illidan Stormrage says: The road ahead will be long. Whatever comes, bring honor to the name... Stormrage...
- Malfurion Stormrage says: My brother made selfish choices. Caused pain to so many. His transgressions are... difficult to forgive.
- Malfurion Stormrage says: And yet... there were times when we fought for a common cause. A shared purpose. Those were good days.
- Malfurion Stormrage says: But now is not the time to ponder personal regrets. We must see to healing the world, champion.
- Tyrande Whisperwind (located in Temple of Elune in Val'sharah)
- Tyrande Whisperwind says: In my lifetime, I have twice witnessed a sundering of the world. Mother Moon, I pray I do not see a third.
Though I cannot abide the actions of your warchief, <race>, we must fight together to save our world.
We must continue to stand together, <name>. We must not let the dark times divide us.
- Illidan requested that I bring this crystal to you.
- Tyrande Whisperwind says: I sense a sorcerer's touch upon this crystal.
- Illidan Stormrage says: Tyrande... long ago, you trusted me enough to defy Malfurion's wishes and free me from my prison.
- Illidan Stormrage says: But over time, that faith was lost. And like my brother, you came to believe that the choices I made had driven me to darkness.
- Illidan Stormrage says: Know that every path I took led toward a single purpose: saving our world. I could abide no half measures. No compromise.
- Illidan Stormrage says: At those times when I faced doubt, I held true to one constant. One anchor. You.
- Illidan Stormrage says: You have always embodied the best of Azeroth, Tyrande. Your faith. Your devotion. Through the darkest times, my belief in you never wavered.
- Illidan Stormrage says: My fate, my duty, are now clear to me. I leave Azeroth's defense to you... and to my brother.
- Illidan Stormrage says: Take care of him, Tyrande. Though at times I wished your heart had made a different choice, in the end... I know it made the right one.
- Tyrande Whisperwind says: Contrite words. Yet I must wonder whether he truly meant them.
- Tyrande Whisperwind says: After Illidan faced defeat atop the Black Temple, I tried to let go of my feelings... my distrust and bitterness.
- Tyrande Whisperwind says: When I learned that he was alive, leading the fight against the Legion on the Broken Shore... I could not bring myself to speak to him.
- Tyrande Whisperwind says: The time for talk has passed. It seems he has a duty to fulfill... as do we. Let us be about it, champion.
- Upon clicking on the crystal, the echoes of Malfurion, Tyrande and Illidan sitting on a bench appear.
- Illidan Stormrage says: The Well of Eternity. I am not one for sentiment... but if anything embodies my commitment to Azeroth, it is the font of power I created so long ago.
- Illidan Stormrage says: But enough dwelling on the past. The crystal I left for you to find holds not two messages, but three. The last is for you, champion.
- Illidan Stormrage says: You have proven your commitment to Azeroth. Your dedication, your sacrifice, rivals my own. But more will be asked of you. So much more.
- Illidan Stormrage says: Even now, enemies gather... and the shadows grow darker. From this day forward, the defense of our world of all we hold dear... rests with you.
- The echoes transform into sparkles and dive into the Well of Eternity.
- Patch 7.3.2 (2017-10-24): Added.
