When Onyxia separated Varian Wrynn into two, Morgala and her nagas attacked Onyxia. The black dragon and her dragonspawn fought against Morgala, and in the confusion of the battle, one of the Varians was caught by the naga while the other jumped into the sea; Morgala believed he would die in the sea but Varian managed to arrive at the coast of Durotar. The Varian they did catch was kidnapped and ransomed later.
After some time, Morgala and her warriors attacked Varian Wrynn, Broll Bearmantle, and Valeera Sanguinar while they were traveling on the Wavecutter, Jaina Proudmoore's private vessel. At first, the naga myrmidon were losing against the Varian and his companions, but then Morgala summoned a giant couatl with her magical trident. However, Valeera took the trident, consuming vast magical power from it. Meanwhile, Varian killed the couatl, which was spitting venom, and engaged Morgala. He then had a glimpse of his lost memory, seeing Morgala's naga attacking him and then the Defias capturing him. In his fury, he cleaved Morgala in two causing the rest of her warriors to flee.
