The Procession and the Riots
When you have completed all requirements for the Zandalari Troll Allied Race in Patch 8.1.5, Rokhan will have the quest
available. After the events of the Battle for Dazar'alor, we're invited to attend the coronation of Princess Talanji as the new ruler of Zandalar, and we head to Zuldazar to meet with the Zandalar emissary,
. Arriving at the Great Seal, he mentions that most of Talanji's entourage already headed downstairs from the Zocalo, and we follow suit in
, we accompany High Prelate Rata to Princess Talanji, who talks about how important this ritual is.
High Prelate Rata says: It has been centuries since our people have crowned a new ruler.
High Prelate Rata says: To claim her throne, Talanji must undergo our most sacred rite.
High Prelate Rata says: Her spirit will be weighed and measured in de eyes of de loa.
Princess Talanji says: I have a special role in mind for you, <player>.
Princess Talanji says: You will act as my witness.
Princess Talanji says: If I am found wanting, my people will hear of de loa's decision from you.
Rokhan says: Dey be sure to find ya worthy, Princess.
During Talanji's procession, there are many dissenting citizens cursing Talanji for her forced allegiance to Bwonsamdi, but Talanji simples tells Rata to let them talk as they have the right to their opinions.
De Zandalari are not slaves to de loa of death!
I would rather see dis city burn than pay homage to death.
I will not serve Bwonsamdi!
Talanji is marked with death! It is a curse!
I will serve no queen who bargains with de dead!
Our faith suffers in Bwonsamdi's shadow! I will be silent no longer!
I only kneel to my loa!
No more dead loa!
My loa will not be de next to fall!
De White Widow showed me de truth. Talanji would have us all dancing in Bwonsamdi's court. We must stop her before it is too late!
What else can I do? Talanji will doom us all. De White Widow knows it to be so.
Next you know, de throne will be moved to de Necropolis. Bah!
How can she elevate death above all loa? It makes no sense!
High Prelate Rata says: Dis rabble must be taught de proper respect, Your Highness.
Princess Talanji says: Let dem talk, Rata. Dey are free to voice their dissent.
After arriving at the Zocalo, Zolani, one of Talanji's guards, arrives to tell Talanji a riot has broken out! Rata advises usage of force, but Talanji is firm in her position of using force only as a last effort. We then stop the rioters in
and question the person instigating said riots in
Zolani says: Princess Talanji!
Princess Talanji says: Zolani? What is wrong?
Zolani says: A riot has broken out in de Zocalo. We must act quickly!
High Prelate Rata says: Heretics! Dey must pay for dis with their lives!
Princess Talanji says: No. It is their right to be angry. I will use force only as a last resort.
Princess Talanji says: <player>, I believe you are best equipped to handle dis.
High Prelate Rata says: I will guard Talanji. Do what you must to end dis nonsense.
After the riots, Talanji theorizes that this uproar was actually started by her Priests, including High Prelate Rata's second in command, Prelate Kaj'ra. Talanji asks us to evacuate Priests that support her in
, subdue angered Prelates in
, and Rata asks you to personally slay Kaj'ra in
The New Zanchuli Council
With the Prelate riots subdued, Talanji wants to talk to her Priests. In the meantime, we meet
Wardruid Loti, High Priestess of Gonk, who kept her place from Rastakhan's Zanchuli Council;
Lashk, the Tortollan responsible for putting Torga's spirit to rest during the Nazmir campaign;
Jo'nok, the Bulwark of Tocali, replacing Vol'kaal as a member chosen for his strength;
Rakera, General of the Zandalari Empire, originally exiled to Vol'dun under General Jakra'zet's orders;
Hexlord Raal, High Priest of Pa'ku, who swears to represent the people within Zandalar's borders;
And finally, High Prelate Rata, formerly the Will of Rezan, now serving Talanji with unyielding determination.
The new Zanchuli Council: Loti, Lashk, Rata, Jo'nok, Rakera, and Raal.
After talking to the new Zanchuli Council, Talanji seeks out their blessing in
, but is stopped by Samara, the White Widow. After being ambushed by spiders, Samara meets her end by the hand of Talanji.
Princess Talanji says: Dis is a council of many firsts. You represent de hope of de Zandalari, and my wishes for de future.
Princess Talanji says: We have much to do, but together we will prosper. I humbly ask--
Samara says: Perhaps you did not get de message, Talanji.
Princess Talanji says: What is de meaning of dis?
Samara says: Allow me to introduce myself.
Samara says: I am de voice dat whispers while others roar. I am de spider in whose web you now writhe.
Princess Talanji says: You... you are to blame for de unrest dat plagues de city!
Samara says: Even now, you cannot see where da blame truly lies. For dat, you must die.
Princess Talanji says: Dat traitorous spider! Look out!
Princess Talanji says: It need not end dis way, Samara. Do not make me send you to Bwonsamdi.
Samara says: Yes, call your master. If I must die to expose de truth, den so be it!
Samara says: I am coming... Shadra...
Princess Talanji says: Loa keep you, White Widow.
Princess Talanji says: Are you hurt?
High Prelate Rata says: We are unharmed, despite de White Widow's intentions.
Princess Talanji says: Good. Gather yourselves and assemble everyone atop Zanchul. I must now face de loa.
The Will of the Loa
With the Zanchuli Council's blessings, it is time for Talanji to face the loa and beseech their blessing on
. Talanji talks a bit about her expectations before meeting the first loa, Krag'wa.
Princess Talanji says: I confess, I do not know what to expect next.
Princess Talanji says: But I do know dat you must not intervene. You cannot help me as you did with Samara.
Princess Talanji says: Steel yourself, <player>. De loa look upon us.
Princess Talanji says: Greetings, oh mighty Krag'wa.
Krag'wa says: Ah, the little queen to be!
, Krag'wa tests Talanji's devotion to defending the weak. Krag'wa transforms you into a firefly, and you must dodge Krag'wa's hungry frogs as Talanji defends you from harm!
You're now the one that needs protection.
After completing Krag'wa's trial, Talanji's next trial is
. Gonk's test is for Talanji to talk about what she considers to be her pack - Not only the Zandalari, but the other races that helped them in Zandalar, such as the Vulpera and the Tortollans, as well as the Horde. With this in mind, Gonk grants his blessing to Talanji.
Gonk says: Rest a moment, Talanji. All I wish is for you to consider something.
Gonk says: My kind draw strength from the pack.
Gonk says: To defend our home, we loa banded together and stood as one.
Gonk says: And so I ask you: Who is your pack?
Gonk says: The Zandalari, surely... but what of your allies? The tortollans, the vulpera?
Gonk says: And what of the Horde?
Gonk says: Think of this, and go with my blessing.
Princess Talanji says: I have, and I will. Thank you.
Talanji's third trial is
. Pa'ku's trial involves Talanji enduring a windstorm, while Pa'ku talks about how she needs to sometimes bend to rule justly.
Princess Talanji says: Greetings, Windmother.
Pa'ku says: Hello, my wingless child. Come to me. I would have words with you.
Pa'ku says: The storm stands between you and your crown. Ascend, Talanji!
Princess Talanji says: I expected nothing less!
Princess Talanji says: I can barely see... are you still with me, <player>?
Pa'ku says: Having trouble?
Princess Talanji says: Gah!
Pa'ku says: The tree that stands rigid in the wind will snap its branches. Bend, my child.
Princess Talanji says: I cannot fight de winds of change... but I will endure dem.
Pa'ku says: I like your spirit, little one.
Talanji weathers the storm on Pa'ku's trial.
The final trial was supposed to be given by Rezan, the Loa of Kings, but after his death, it is now Bwonsamdi's trial on
. Bwonsamdi tests Talanji's resolve once again by giving her a new deal: Bring Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner's head to him, and he will let go of Rastakhan's deal. Talanji refuses the deal, assuring Bwomsandi that her freedom is not worth forsaking her honor.
Princess Talanji says: You dare stand in de place meant for Rezan? Does your arrogance have no limit, Bwonsamdi?
Bwonsamdi says: Mind ya manners, child. Ol' Bwonsamdi be raised above all other loa. Just like ya father said.
Princess Talanji says: Test me and be done with dis.
Bwonsamdi says: Well, since ya be so eager to get rid of me... I got a new deal for ya.
Bwonsamdi says: Bring me da head of de Horde's warchief, and I be forgettin' all about ya father's bargain.
Princess Talanji says: Oh... by de loa...
Princess Talanji says: No. De Horde stood beside us when all seemed lost. I will not repay dem with betrayal.
Bwonsamdi says: Dat ya final answer?
Princess Talanji says: It is. My freedom is not worth my honor.
Bwonsamdi says: Ah, dat is a real shame. Been wantin' a warchief's spirit for a long time. But go on. Claim ya crown.
You might even notice a special someone witnessing Talanji's decision...
The Queen of the Zandalari
After passing all of the trials of the Loa, it is time for Talanji to ascend as queen in
. Talanji speaks to the Zandalari and the Horde as new queen in an in-game cutscene.
(22:45 on the questline video)
Talanji addresses the people of Zandalar. It is good to be the Queen!
Queen Talanji says: People of Zandalar.
Queen Talanji says: I stand before you, having proven myself to de loa.
Queen Talanji says: But it is your trust dat I must earn.
Queen Talanji says: Many questioned my judgment when I reached out to de Horde.
Queen Talanji says: But without their aid, we would have collapsed under de weight of our pride. These mighty allies have given Zandalar new strength.
Queen Talanji says: A glorious future awaits our empire. And we must embrace it together. Will you stand with me?
Queen Talanji says: Zandalar forever!
After Talanji's coronation, Sylvanas heads to the throne room to talk with Talanji in
Oh look, it's that special someone again, overlooking Talanji's throne.
Queen Talanji says: I will await de warchief upon my throne.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: She thinks to summon me? Hmph. I suppose she is allowed some posturing today.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Congratulations, Your Majesty.
Queen Talanji says: Thank you, warchief. I believe we have an urgent matter to discuss, now dat I am queen.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Yes, it is beyond time we did.
Queen Talanji says: De Horde has been a trustworthy ally to Zandalar.
Queen Talanji says: Without our partnership, we may not have overcome de threats dat rose against us.
Queen Talanji says: I understand dat you have need of our forces. De Alliance will stop at nothing to destroy you.
Queen Talanji says: So let it be official. De Zandalari and de Horde will stand together... as equals.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Equals?
Queen Talanji says: I am de queen of Zandalar. And a queen kneels to no one. Surely, you understand.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: I see... Very well, Queen Talanji. The Horde welcomes you.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: You have performed admirably, <player>. Arrangements will be made to greet our new allies in Orgrimmar.
Queen Talanji says: Speaker of de Horde. Thank you... for everything. I look forward to our next adventure together. For now, I have an empire to lead.
