Talgath’s words carry more gravity than I think he knew. In an attempt to hurt me one final time, he has given us the answer.
The Crest of Knowledge is hidden away in the Seat of the Triumvirate, and it is not unguarded.
If my suspicions are correct, we may be facing a greater threat than any of us dared imagine.
A dark naaru.
Let us return to the Vindicaar. We will plan our next steps there.
Return to the Vindicaar.
Prophet Velen: Talgath. There was a time I called him an ally, a friend.
I put my trust in him when it came time to leave Argus. I asked him to call out to the others who would join me.
I gave him all that he needed to betray me and slaughter my followers.
I do not know what brought this hatred to lurk in his heart, but his machinations repeatedly forced my people to flee world after world. He made it his mission to hunt us across the universe.
This must end, (name). Talgath must die.
(Velen continues to stare at the statue as he speaks.)
Prophet Velen: Thousands of years ago, when I was young, I made a choice.
A choice that allowed my world to fall to ruin. A choice that made my people exiles. A choice that forever separated me from my beloved brothers.
(Velen shakes his head.)
I cannot leave, not yet. Not until I have had a chance to reflect.
Witness Velen’s memory.
High Exarch Turalyon: Where the Legion is concerned, violence is always the answer.
(Turalyon hefts his blade with a grim expression.)
They are between us and Velen. Nothing will stop them from finding him unless we act. Now is not the time to hold back.
Together we will sow chaos among their ranks.
Disrupt the Legion forces in Arinor Gardens.
Prophet Velen: I must continue to seek the Crest of Knowledge, my friend. Nothing short of the whole Crown of the Triumvirate can turn the tide in the battle we face.
Talgath’s forces stand between us and that goal. I will need you to clear a path.
We can let nothing stand in our way. Not even Talgath.
Slay 12 of Talgath’s forces.
High Exarch Turalyon: I will take command of Fareeya’s lieutenants and we will escort Velen to the Crest of Knowledge. His mission must not fail.
We face an old foe– one the Army of the Light has encountered on numerous occasions. Talgath will try to block us in and prevent our retreat.
You must not let that happen. Find out how he is bringing in his forces and cut them off. All we need is time to get in and get out.
We are counting on you.
Close 3 Legion Portals.
High Exarch Turalyon: I have complete faith that Velen is nearby. We would know if he had been captured.
All the same, we must not delay. The Legion has a vested interest in finding him after all he has done to resist them. I shudder to think what they might do, given the chance.
That is why I am going with you.
We will find Velen and help him track down the Crest of Knowledge. We must have faith in his mission or all will be lost.
Captain Fareeya: My soldiers are out there, .
I need you to find Baraat, Sorvos, and Telaamon. They were in the process of securing this area for Velen when the Legion came down on top of our heads.
Inform them that their orders are to regroup with the Prophet at once.
The time for subtlety has passed. There is a small army between us and them. Do what you must.
Light keep you safe.
Locate Baraat the Longshot, Grand Vindicator Sorvos, and Blademaster Telaamon.
High Exarch Turalyon: We have a problem, (name). The Legion has come to Mac’Aree.
When you claimed the Sigil it was as if we announced our presence to all of Argus. The eyes of Antorus are firmly upon us.
Just wait. It gets worse.
Velen took Captain Fareeya and her forces into the Arinor Gardens area to search for the Crest of Knowledge. To my knowledge, they are all now behind enemy lines.
Come with me to the Conservatory. We need to bring Velen and the others back before it is too late.
Meet Turalyon at the Conservatory of the Arcane.
Archmage Y’mera: This relic is too powerful to keep it out in the open.
We must return to the Vindicaar at once. The Prophet will know what to do.
I did want to thank you, (name). Without you this would not be possible. Quoram would have ensured I never got near the Sigil. Perhaps some day I will share that story with you.
Return to the Vindicaar and secure the Sigil of Awakening.
