The Ghostlands

Alleria Windrunner: A blood elf called Umbric and his followers were banished from Silvermoon City for the exploration of void magic. An extreme solution despite the practice being forbidden. However, it opens up possibilities for the Alliance. If we can find these outcasts, we might be able to recruit them to our cause and–even more importantly–help them understand the void before it corrupts them.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Locate Umbric’s home in the Ghostlands.

The Ghostlands

 

PROGRESS

King Anduin Wrynn: Lady Windrunner, please begin the search for your exiled kin. Perhaps our champion here can assist you.

Alleria Windrunner: We will do our best to locate them, High King. This way, champion.

 

Alleria Windrunner: The Ghostlands. This was once Eversong Forest… a place of unbridled beauty. Windrunner Spire, my family home, stands not far from here. These woods once brought such joy to me and my sisters. To see them like this… fills my heart with sorrow.

 

Alleria Windrunner: This sanctum was once a testament to my people’s mastery of the arcane. Now it is but a ruin.

Umbric’s Notes: Sanctum of the Moon: Our void experiments are proceeding well. I am certain we are on the cusp of a breakthrough… despite Rommath’s smallminded protests. The grand magister must understand that this power is crucial to the defense of Silvermoon. Never again shall the sin’dorei fall prey to our enemies! Unfortunately, it seems our research has reached an impasse. I believe there is knowledge at the Andilien Estate that will springboard us forward.

 

Alleria Windrunner: The Andilien Estate… yes, I remember it. Come, (Name).

Location: Andilien Estate

Alleria Windrunner: This place looks like it has been ransacked. But perhaps Umbric left behind a clue.

Umbric’s Notes: Andilien Estate: It seems we are not the first of our people seeking to harness the void. I have found notebooks belonging to one whose very name is a curse… Dar’Khan Drathir. It was Drathir’s betrayal that allowed Arthas to corrupt the Sunwell… and left our kingdom in ruins. For the first time, I see why Rommath opposes our course of study. Nevertheless, I believe this knowledge can be used for good. The bulk of Drathir’s research was conducted at Dawnstar Spire. That is where we must go.

 

Alleria Windrunner: Umbric risks much. He follows in the footsteps of treachery. Let us hope this obsession has not led to his downfall. Come. We must make our way to Dawnstar Spire.

 

Alleria Windrunner: This place resonates with power. Tread carefully, (Name).

NOTE: Go up the ramp, and click the Teleportation Console. Then go up the spiral-like ramp on the left side to reach the top of the spire. Click the book.

 

Alleria Windrunner: Umbric is a dedicated scholar… but his tenacity turned him and his followers into exiles.

Umbric’s Notes: Dawnstar Spire: Drathir’s quest for power led him to seek the fragments of an ancient world, one teetering on the brink of the Void itself. His notes said it existed within a rift in the very fabric of reality. He never found this place… but I have succeeded where he failed. The way will soon be open to us! Drathir believed this site held an ancient object of unspeakable might. Perhaps this will be the key that allows us to gain control over the shadows.

 

Alleria Windrunner: Based on these notes, I believe I can reopen the passage to this world he spoke of. Let me see…

 

COMPLETION

Alleria Windrunner: Umbric’s methods are a bit cavalier, but he seems competent. We must get to him before things become too dangerous.
