At the beginning of The Eye of The World, Nynaeve is the Wisdom of Emond's Field, and several people complain how she is too young, especially after she was wrong in forecasting a mild winter.

In FOH 8, Nynaeve, Elayne, Thom Merrilin and Juilin Sandar cross into Amadicia, having traveled overland from Tanchico. Thom goes into Mardecin for supplies, but after his return Nynaeve takes Elayne into town ostensibly to look for more, but also to discuss her shameful conduct towards Thom. Seeing an emergency signal for the Yellow Ajah outside Ronde Macura's shop, they go inside. She convinces Mistress Macura that she is Yellow Ajah, and hears an odd message from the tower before realizing that the tea they have been served is drugged, and slipping into complete paralysis. Unable to move or touch the True Source, she and Elayne are taken upstairs and kept drugged until Thom and Juilin rescue them. She finds out that Mistress Macura was working for the White Tower and knows nothing of the Black Ajah, but that the Amyrlin Seat seems to want Elayne in custody. She swallows her pride and thanks Thom and Juilin for saving them, then suggests that they dye Elayne's hair and continue on in a coach instead of a cart.

At the beginning of A Crown of Swords, Nynaeve is reported to be in Ebou Dar.

In POD 1, Nynaeve is in Ebou Dar with Elayne, Birgitte, Aviendha, and others. She offers a grudging warning about Moghedien and the gholam to Teslyn Baradon, who dismisses it as fantasy. She leaves the city through a gateway.
