Years ago, Blizzard Entertainment introduced a pre-Cataclysm world event featuring Doomsayers from the Twilight’s Hammer Clan who had infiltrated Orgrimmar and Stormwind with tales of impending doom, as Deathwing and elementals sought to end the world. You can watch the Alliance and Horde versions in our 2010 articles.
There was a second arrival of Doomsayers in July 2016 for the pre-Legion world event which granted the Feat of Strength: “It All Makes Sense Now.”
In the Legion version, a random doomsayer would transform into a demon, with a chance to drop Pocket Fel Sprayer.
With Sargeras’ return looming in the horizon, Patch 7.3 brings the Validated Doomsayers once more, but this time exclusively in the streets of Dalaran (tested). They will provide you with 12 pamphlets.
Magni Bronzebeard: “Champion! Azeroth needs our help.”
(Magni Bronzebeard’s words echo in your mind, as if rising from somewhere deep and ancient. Azeroth’s world soul seeks to deliver a warning to the Speaker, but some force is interfering with the message.)
(Magni has urged you to travel to Sholazar Basin, the vibrant heart of frozen Northrend, to aid him.)
Meet Magni in Sholazar Basin and hear the warning.
The newest Patch 7.3 build was deployed in the PTR servers, and it has added a new Soulbound Item vendor for upgrades. At the moment the items have a placeholder name. Each item costs 650 Veiled Argunite (a new currency that drops from Elite rare mobs in the Antoran Wastes. Turalyon also offers a quest titled “Fuel of a Doomed World” which grants 500 Veiled Argunite as reward.
Prophet Velen: We have all that we need now, (name).
Alleria Windrunner awaits your arrival at the Seat of the Triumvirate. I have enabled a pod for you below. It will take you close enough to begin your assault on the ethereals standing in your way.
Do not go alone, my friend. You will need allies to overcome what L’ura has become and recover the Crest of Knowledge.
I will prepare the Vindicaar and await your return.
Slay L’ura and retrieve the Crest of Knowledge.
Prophet Velen: Such darkness… This energy…
(Lifting the cold, dense object closer for inspection.)
To understand the balance between Light and Shadow…
(Lifting his other hand, gently harnessing a small, radiant light.)
…is to understand that these forces are not without great opposition. The responsibility is now yours, (name). You have shown that you are ready to understand what power lies ahead.
Deliver the Essence of Shadow to the Netherlight Crucible.
Alleria Windrunner: That… was intense.
(Alleria rubs her forehead.)
Ugh, I cannot focus. I need you to return to Velen. Give him this.
(She places something cold and dense in your palm.)
I feel as though he should have it, though I am not sure why.
Tell him all that we have learned. I am sure Romuul will have been watching our progress. With any luck a beacon is already headed our way.
Take the Remnant of Nhal’atoth to Velen on the Vindicaar.
Locus-Walker: After some consideration, I have decided to allow Alleria another opportunity to pursue her destiny.
I suppose you want to know what that means, mortal.
(Locus-Walker makes a noise akin to laughter.)
Meet us deep in the Shadowguard camp ahead- my brethren are preparing a summons that will provide adequate energy for Windrunner to begin again.
Witness what happens when you harness the Void’s power.
Defeat Nhal’athoth and collect his heart.
Locus-Walker: As you have surely gathered by now, a certain subset of my people have tragically succumbed to the call of the Void.
I had hoped to find more who possess the necessary strength of mind. I am disappointed to find such an utter lack of resistance.
It cannot be helped. To advance your cause, and mine, we will need to eradicate these weak-willed beings.
Slay 15 Shadowguard Ethereals.
Alleria Windrunner: I think I understand what he was trying to show us, (name).
I feel a surge of power building ahead. They must be cultivating the Void, calling it here.
We need to stop them before they plunge this entire city into shadow. Find the source and cut it off by any means necessary.
Locus Walker and I have unfinished business.
Deactivate 5 Void Harvesters.
Alleria Windrunner: That was Locus-Walker. He taught me all that I know about the Void, and he still has more to teach me.
If he is here, then the ethereals’ presence only intrigues me further. I had thought him the only one of his kind, but now that I have seen another tangling with the Void…
Come, we must play his game if we want to learn what he knows. He appears to have gone toward the Umbra Hollows to the north.
Investigate the Umbra Hollows with Alleria and Locus-Walker.
