Answer
 
The contest has finally come to a close! Today’s answer was: Gunther Arcanus. Now he may not be the most well-known NPC, but he’s pretty damn cool. Let’s look at our clues:
 

Clue 1: Gunther, after freeing himself from the Lich King (this is a pretty incredible feat to do so by oneself), never allied himself with any faction. He sat on an island alone, surrounded by the mindless dead. He believed every undead was like those around him and in the Scourge.

 

It wasn’t until a book of a Lich was uncovered that the Forsaken and Sylvanas finally remembered him. Through his old friend, Bethor Iceshard, you make contact with this incredibly powerful being and convince him that there is a faction of undead free from the Lich King.

 

Clue 2: Before his death in the Third War, Gunther was actually a mage and necromancer within the Kirin Tor. He was an incredibly powerful mage in life, and even more so in death. One of the books within The Violet Citadel lists him as one of the casualties of the war.

 

Clue 3: This references the fact that he was surrounded by that which he feared he had become; the mindless dead wander around the island and he believed this was everything the undead was capable of.

 

Clue 4: This references the fact that the island on which he is camped is in the middle of Brightwater Lake, in Tirisfal Glades. It is directly in view of the Undercity, hence the city of the banshee royalty, Sylvanas.

 

Points for Day 5

  2. Nocturnez: 80 Points
  3. SnappleJesus: 65 Points

I don't know if it's ok, but my first answer wasn't entirely correct, the NPC is Shade of Aran, but i only wrote the Person, Nielas Aran.

      Show off your knowledge as one of our new class guide writers!
      A new expansion is on the horizon and, in our quest to improve and perfect our guides, we are looking for new class writers to join our team. If you think you have what it takes, find out how to apply here!
      With World of Warcraft’s new expansion on the horizon and a period of relative calm for the next few months, we think it is the perfect opportunity to open up one or more WoW class guide writer positions (for PvE). 
      This is a paid position, with the amount earned by the writer being a share of the amount generated by the guides they write. More details about this will be available throughout the recruitment process, although we estimate that each writer will earn at least $500 per month per guide. 
      In order to be considered for the position, you will need to meet the following requirements:
      1. You should have a strong mastery of the English language, particularly in its written form.
      2. You should be playing World of Warcraft at a very high level, and have a very high degree of familiarity with at least one specialization (although ideally more than just one).
      3. You should be committed to playing World of Warcraft at a high level for the foreseeable future (roughly, at a minimum, for the first 6 months of Battle for Azeroth, though ideally for many years to come).
      To apply for the position, send us an e-mail at jobs@icy-veins.com. It is up to you to find the best way to express yourself over e-mail in order for your application to be compelling. The deadline for applications is Monday, March 19, 2018, at 23:59 CET.
      Good luck and we look forward to reading your applications!
