Shrine of Aviana [44, 45] is a shrine built to honor Aviana. Found on the Rim of the World in central Mount Hyjal it serves as a safe haven for all winged creatures and as a base for the Druid of the Talon under direction of Skylord Omnuron.

The Wormwing harpies once sheltered themselves in the boughs of shrine, but have turned against the druids since the Twilight's Hammer assault upon the mountain.

Legacy

According to Choluna.

Fair Aviana, the Mistress of Birds! All winged creatures of Azeroth once owed her allegiance, especially we Druids of the Talon. It's by her grace that we were granted the ability to shift forms and take to the skies.

Aviana was both beautiful and terrible, like the great birds of prey she counted among her children. She lived in the towering spirit realm of G'hanir, the Mother Tree, but appeared on Azeroth in the form of a great winged goddess.

Gossip You speak in the past tense. What happened to her?

<Choluna's face darkens.>

Ten thousand years ago demons flooded across Azeroth in the War of the Ancients. Aviana called her children to the skies and fought off the demon hordes from the front lines. Her wrath was inescapable.

Hundred feel before the fury of her talons. But ultimately she was surrounded by Doomguards, their barbed lances piercing her sides...

It is said that her blood itself attacked the demons, searing their flesh, destroying them even as she herself fell from the sky.

Gossip What became of her?

Aviana perished on the battlefield that day, but the mortal races and the remaining ancients ultimately triumphed. The first druids found her body among the carnage, and bore it up her, to the highest mountain.

She was laid to rest just outside this shrine, within a circle of sacred stones.

A seed of G'hanir was used to planet the World Tree, and it is all that remains of that sacred realm, which otherwise perished with her.

Notes

The Inn does not seem to contribute to all phases of the area. It may work when you first arrive, but by the time Aviana is up and alive, the Inn may not work as intended.
