Moonwillow herself was exiled from Stormwind and placed on a probationary status as the High Ranger used several means to cover Starlight's involvement in the coven's activities, ranging from calling some markers and her own permanent removal of two of the coven's leaders, until she was satisfied that Moonwillow's past in this group was safely buried. For the next two years, however Moonwillow was under restricted movements in the Eastern Kingdoms and specifically barred from entering Stormwind without prior orders.
