Ysera – Aspect of Dreams
Ysera the Awakened is the green Dragon Aspect charged with the protection of the Emerald Dream who watches over Azeroth. She is known as the “mother” of Cenarius to the Druids.
Eonar the titan blessed Alexstrasza’s younger sister, the lithe green dragon Ysera, with a portion of nature’s influence. Ysera fell into an eternal trance, bound to the waking Dream of Creation. Formally known as the Dreamer, she would watch over the growing wilds of the world from her verdant realm, the Emerald Dream.
You are bound to the waking Dream of Creation. Nature is your realm, and all things have caught glimpses of the Emerald Dream when they sleep. You see them all, Ysera. And they see you, though they may not know it. Like the Life-Binder, you touch all living beings, and sing to them the songs of creation and interconnectedness.

Ysera appears at the Emerald Dragonshrine in Dragonblight although that’s just her projection. Her skin glitters with countless emeralds for scales. Her physical form is ghostly, ethereal, like watching a living dream or vision. The Emerald Dream is a place where all living beings dream when sleeping. It is a place of where sentient beings have dreams of hope, and faith for a better tomorrow. From the Emerald Dream, Ysera can observe all lesser races. Her eyes are usually closed, although you can see her pupils move constantly below her eyelids as if watching many dreams at once.
More recently, Ysera has appeared at Mount Hyjal under the World Tree Nordrassil with the Cataclysm expansion.
After the War of the Ancients, Alexstrasza planted a magical acorn from the Mother Tree G’Hanir within the second Well of Eternity, created by Illidan. The Tree grew large till it reached the heavens and was crowned Nordrassil. Ysera enchanted the tree so that it would be bound to the Emerald Dream.
Ysera was one of the Dragon Aspects that gave some of her power to the Demon Soul, not knowing Neltharion would betray the Aspects.
Ysera can assume the form of a female from any race, depending on whom she is talking to. Often she wears a dress of emerald green, emerald jewellery, and has emerald-green hair. Although in Cata, she’s had her model and wardrobe updated as seen above.
She avoids and dislikes combat, especially in her realm. When angered, she behaves paranoid and impulsive. She keeps herself isolated in the Eye of Ysera within the Emerald Dream, and is rarely seen in the real world. When in combat, she attacks with her greenish breath to put her opponents to sleep, and rarely strikes to kill. She prefers to neutralize her enemies and banish them away from her realm.
Ysera can travel from mind to mind to travel anywhere she wishes by entering the dreams of any living being sleeping. She may enter the dreams of a target to communicate with or warn the sleeping creature. Ysera has the ability to planeshift between the real world and the Emerald Dream.

On a side note, the Tiny Emerald Whelpling pet used to be farmed from the Adolescent Whelps and Dreaming Whelps in Swamp of Sorrows. However, since these mobs no longer exist in-game, they can now be farmed from the Noxious Whelps found in Northern Feralas.
