Uuna's Continued Story In 7.3.5

Over the past day or two the WoW Secrets Finding Discord server has been hard at work discovering the secret of Uuna's story. Datamined dialogue from the 7.3.5 PTR was used as sort of a guide to point secret-searchers in the right direction. Still, it took some time and a lot of trial and error. I was of no help, as usual haha. I'm just not creative enough to solve puzzles and riddles like this, I guess.

Anyway, Uuna's story has finally been revealed and players can now progress through all necessary steps to learn more about this Draenei ghost child's fate. It's heart-wrenching and totally worth it. The scenario that you eventually travel to was one of the best I've experienced so far. Very atmospheric, spooky, and just a deep feeling of dread. Fitting for the quest and very nicely done!

In 'A Dark Place' *eerie noises*

Uuna's story comes in 2 parts. First part (~10 steps) is helping her prepare to fight the darkness, finding her, and then saving her from darkness. The second part (~8 steps) is taking Uuna on a 'World Tour' and visiting specific locations. Here's a TL;DR version of what to do.

Note: After step 6 in part 1, you will not be able to summon Uuna. She still appears in your Pet Journal, but attempting to call her out will result in an error, 'Uuna is missin.' Don't panic though, this is just temporary! Once you save her from darkness you can summon her again.

I won't spoil the whole story or write a full guide, but if you're interested in completing this "questchain" (you don't actually complete quests, just "triggers" aka requirements to move onto the next step) I highly recommend checking out the Secrets Discord server and the #secret-progress channel:

Alternatively, you can read this Wowhead Guide to Uuna's story for a full walkthrough of what to do.

I'm a little disappointed that part 2, step 2 is bugged for Alliance and Horde that have not completed all Suramar quests though. You enter the wrong phase of uninstanced Nighthold, meaning you can't complete this step until a hotfix is applied. I'm stuck for now, but expect it to be resolved soon.

There's some saltiness in the larger WoW community about the end reward. It's nothing flashy or huge. Essentially Uuna gets an updated appearance (pictured at the start of this post) and she will respond to the /hug emote once you've fully saved her and completed all necessary steps. Personally, I think it's a lovely touch and I adore her new look. Plus I enjoy free hugs. :)

I'm very happy that we've been given the opportunity to "save" Uuna and give her hope and a renewed light (literally hehe). There wasn't a gigantic reward at the end, but I'm 100% ok with that. The journey was fantastic and gave me all the feels. <3
