A Matter of Time is a quest offered by Chromie, a creature that looks like a Gnome, who asks you to help her repair time.


Use the Temporal Displacer near one of Andorhal's silos and uncover Temporal Parasites.

Slay 10 Temporal Parasites, and then return the Temporal Displacer to Chromie in the Andorhal Inn, Western Plaguelands.

You will need:


Andorhal Grain Silo

The silos are the blue-glowing towers near the edges of Ruins of Andorhal. Using the Temporal Displacer near one will cause 2 to 4 Temporal Parasites to spawn and start attacking. There is a chance for further slugs to spawn whenever you kill one of the first spawn.


Tampering of the timeline by a sinister force - most likely the Scourge - has occurred in Andorhal! I can try to keep the passage of time here intact and mend what has been damaged, but I'll need your help to do so uninterrupted.

Temporal parasites - carrion that feed on the strands of time's altered flow - now infest the silos of Andorhal. A blue pulse of distortion is their only visual marker. They slow my auguries; please <Name>, help me by using this temporal displacer to root out these parasites.


You will be allowed to choose one of these rewards:


Temporal parasites are a common malady present wherever the flow of time has been tampered with. I sense that many are present, and this is disturbing.

Rooting out whatever ones you can find will help me be able to take a better hold on the deteriorating temporal situation here. I will be able to sense when this has been achieved.


Time feels easier to mend now, thank you <name>. While you might not understand fully the consequences of a fractured timeline, I appreciate that you understand the urgency of countering what I suspect more and more to be a Scourge-driven malfeasance.

I see no harm in rewarding you for your assistance, mortal. Your greatest feats are to come, and the awarding of a bauble will certainly not alter your future destiny. Your continued aid, however, is something that I and the dragonflight could use...

Involvement of the Infinite Dragonflight

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

The appearence of the Infinite dragonflight and their role in the attempted altering of key events in the history of Azeroth may point to them as the ones who are truely behind the attacks on the timeline here, instead of the Scourge. Although Chromie suggests that it is the work of the Scourge she wasn't completely sure (hence the use of the phrase "most likely"), and so - as she and the other Bronze Dragon's were unaware of the existance of the Infinite Flight - directed the blame to the most powerful malevolent force known to exist in the area.
