Before Cataclysm he could be found in the lower level of the Temple of the Moon, seeking an audience with Tyrande Whisperwind to accept the Highborne into the society. He was debating with Sentinel Stillbough.

Mordent had a hard time as his Highborne mages were murdered in Darnassus. Mordent and his followers were called to a meeting with Maiev, who was examining the murders. However, it turned out to be a trap as the Highborne got trapped in Maiev's magic trap. One of Mordent's student, Var'dyn Skyseeker, got killed in the trap. Thanks to the efforts of Malfurion Stormrage and Jarod Shadowsong, the Highborne were freed, though Maiev escaped.

- The magic of today pales in comparison to that of millennia past. Still, we Highborne know much of the arcane. Are you ready to learn?
- I suppose I should not be surprised at this cold reception. We have long been in our hiding, and the separation from our brethren was necessary.
- That time, however, is done. Whether the residents of this young tree come to accept us or not, the Highborne are returning to light, and we will not turn our backs on what we are.
- Conversation with Sentinel Stillbough
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade says: Sentinel, I would speak with your High Priestess.
- Sentinel Stillbough says: You must wait for an audience.
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade says: Must I? I doubt Tyrande has more pressing business.
- Sentinel Stillbough says: You show some nerve coming to Teldrassil, Highborne. Your kind are unwelcome here. We have not forgotten the War of the Ancients or the minds behind it.
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade says: The lure of power is great. Mistakes were made.
- Sentinel Stillbough says: And we would not see those mistakes repeated. Return to your exile.
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade says: I will not return until I am heard. There is too much at stake. There is a change on the wind, and we cannot ignore it. I have traveled from the dust and ruin of the past to come to an accord. The time may soon come when the kaldorei require the knowledge and skill we have to offer. I will wait, Sentinel... but I will have my audience.
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade looks over at the moonwell with a sigh.
- Sentinel Stillbough says: Take your gaze off the moonwell, exile. The power within is not yours to wield.
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade says: Calm yourself, Sentinel. I do not seek to use it. I am merely... remembering.
- Sentinel Stillbough says: Recalling your treachery?
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade says: Enough. I have been apart from this for centuries. The well within this temple may be a pale spectre of the Well of Eternity, but it still holds the same... beauty. Purity.
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade says: I had forgotten.
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade says: I do not believe admiration and wistful thoughts are against the societal norm.
- Sentinel Stillbough says: Watch yourself, Highborne.
- Archmage Mordent Evenshade says: You were the one who challenged me for merely looking. I still await my audience with Tyrande.
- Sentinel Stillbough says: In good time.
- An unused ID may suggest he was planned to appear in Legion.
