Archmage Khadgar: Turalyon lives! For ages I had thought that my old friend had perished on some desolate Legion world. But to know that he yet lives and is in danger is too much to bear. We must hurry, (Name). We must uncover the object’s sacred purpose. The prophet of whom Turalyon spoke of is undoubtedly the leader of the draenei, Velen. Take the object and journey to the Exodar. It is there that you will find Prophet Velen. I will open a portal for you now. Take my beacon and use it when you are ready to return.



Quest Objectives

Discover the purpose of the Mysterious Lightbound Object.


Archmage Khadgar: This portal will take you to the Exodar. Good luck, Highlord.



Intermission (Scenario)

THE PROPHET AND THE BUTCHER: Seek out Prophet Velen in the Vault of Lights

Prophet Velen: We make our last stand at the Vault of Lights! If you can make your way here you will find sanctuary, although I cannot say for how long…



High General Rakeesh: Did your visions foretell of this day, Prophet? Did you see our coming? I bring you a message from Kil’jaeden, to be served in the blood of your people! JUSTICE WILL BE MET! A coward’s death to these traitorous “draenei!” Mar their corpses so the living may see the fate that awaits them!

Nus: Save us!

Jaela: Light help us!

Nahogg: If the Prophet’s barrier falls we are all doomed!

Pan of the Martial Spirit: Save us!

Edrem: Light help us!

Denz: Is this the end?

Prophet Velen: Fate has delivered you to us in this most dire time, hero! While I sense that your mission is urgent, if we do not push back these invading demons, we will all perish. This barrier protecting my people requires all of my energy and focus. I am afraid you must venture into the demon infested halls alone. Please, search for survivors and eliminate the Legion invasion point portals that you find across the Exodar. You must hurry. I do not know how much longer I can keep this barrier active!


IN DEFENSE OF THE EXODAR: Rescue terrified citizens found throughout the Exodar and destroy Legion fel portals.

High General Rakeesh: Break your bodies upon the prophet’s barrier, minions! Soon it shall fall, and with it the hopes of the draenei!

Huk’roth the Huntmaster: Your will be done, master!

Gomii: Light help us!

Artificer Drenin: Do you think my family is safe? I haven’t seen them.

Felguard: Mortal flesh part so easily.

High General Rakeesh: Your interference only delays the inevitable. Minions, destroy him!



High Vindicator: Well done, hero of the Light! We will now safeguard this area and give you assistance!


High General Rakeesh: Send in the wrathlords at once! Stop these meddling insects!



Farseer Nobundo: We have retreated into the collapsed shaft on the northern edge of the Crystal Hall. We are holding back the demon onslaught, but our defenses are quickly falling apart!

Terrified Exodar citizen: Light bless you!

Terrified Exodar Citizen: I was so scared! Those angry draenei are hurting everyone!



High General Rakeesh: You foolishly stand in defiance of the endless armies of Sargeras! Sisters, bring me his head!



Terrified Exodar Citizen: Thank you, (class)! Without you I would have surely perished!

Terrified Exodar Citizen: Have you seen my mommy?

Terrified Exodar Citizen: I can make it back on my own now. Your heroics have strengthened my resolve!

Terrified Exodar Citizen: Have you seen my brother? I hope he made it to the prophet!

Prophet Velen: You have destroyed most of the fel portals, greatly hindering Rakeesh’s ability to bring in reinforcements. Focus your attention on finding survivors now!



NOTE: You can find an alternate quest in the Crystall Hall to the north.

Farseer Nobundo: The Exodar shook from the force of the Legion’s arrival. Before we could react, demons were running rampant through the halls, slaughtering everything in their path. If it were not for the Prophet, we would have all perished in the initial assault. I was charged with evacuating the Crystal Hall, which is when my Broken and I were separated from the main force. We fell back into the collapsed hall to make our last stand. With your aid, we may survive this invasion.



Quest Objectives

Defend Farseer Nobundo from the Legion Assault.



Farseer Nobundo: The demons killed most of my shaman. We retreated here to make our last stand.

(Nobundo sighs.)

Farseer Nobundo: We will make our last stand on your command, champion! Tell me when you are ready.

(I am ready, Nobundo! Let them come!)


Speak to Nobundo to begin the assault: 1/1


High General Rakeesh: Bring me that defiant aberration’s head!

Farseer Nobundo: Fight as one! We can only defeat them if we stand united!


First Assault defeated: 1/1

High General Rakeesh: Take them by ground and air! Felguards and doomguards, attack!

Deathguard: For the Legion!

NOTE: Careful with the Deathguard. They have a deadly AOE with their whirlwind. Move away immediately. I died quick with plate. The Wrathguard also have an AOE in the shape of a green pool on the ground.


Second Assault defeated: 1/1


High General Rakeesh: Enough! Sisters, end this nonsense!

Lightsworn Anchorite: In the name of the Light, you are battle-born once more!


Third Assault defeated: 1/1


High General Rakeesh: Karzak, I call upon you! FINISH THEM!



Karzak the Impaler slain: 1/1


Defend Farseer Nobundo from the Legion Assault (Complete)



Farseer Nobundo: You have my thanks, and the gratitude of the Broken, hero. Many would have considered us an acceptable loss, yet you have shown us great compassion and kindness. An act that I – we – will not soon forget. Now we will return to the Vault of Lights and assist Velen as best we can.


Farseer Nobundo: Only by working together with these heroes have we won this day! Quickly, brethren, to the Vault of Lights! The Prophet needs our help!


Terrified Exodar Citizens: 12/12
Fel Portals destroyed: 8/8


RETURN TO THE PROPHET: Return to Prophet Velen in the Vault of Lights.


Prophet Velen: Divinius. Highlord (Name) has crushed the incursion. Now is the time to take the Chosen and finish off the leftover demonic taint within our halls. Secure the Exodar for our people once more!

Divinius: As you command, Prophet!

Prophet Velen: I fear we have but a moment, hero. Rakeesh is still here – somewhere – and he must be stopped if my people are to find peace again. I know that you have ventured far to find me and have brought with you a dire message. In your possession is an object of great importance. May I see it?



THE LIGHT’S HEART: Let Prophet Velen examine the Mysterious Lightbound Object.

Prophet Velen: Please, show me what you have brought. We haven’t much time.


(Place the Mysterious Lightbound Object on the ground.)


Prophet Velen: Mother of Light! I… I am sorry. I did not know. Champion, we have to go. NOW! I will explain on the way there. Inform me when you are prepared to leave, but please hurry.



A LONG WAY DOWN…: Speak to Prophet Velen, then escort him to the Seat of the Naaru


Prophet Velen: Are you prepared to save O’ros from Rakeesh and uncover the secrets held within Light’s Heart?

(I’m ready, Velen!)


Prophet Velen: What you have brought to me is known as Light’s Heart. It is the sentience core of the naaru prime: Xe’ra. Locked away within the core is wisdom… knowledge crucial to our battle against the Burning Legion. Yet only a naaru born of Xe’ra is capable of unlocking the core. This is why you were sent here, (Name). This is the true purpose of the Burning Legion’s invasion of the Exodar. The last of Xe’ra’s line, O’ros, sits unguarded in the heart of the Exodar. If they destroy O’ros, the information within Light’s Heart will be lost forever.

High General Rakeesh: For a prophet you are doing a very poor job of making predictions…

O’ros: “O’ros emits a bitter melody”

High General Rakeesh: HAH! It makes music when you beat it! What a delightful creature! I will enjoy ending its existence.

Prophet Velen: Light damn him! I will guide us to the heart of the vessel. Stay within my protective barrier as I cleanse the fel tain from the pathway.



Prophet Velen: We have made it in time! By the grace and glory of the Light, I will heal O’ros. Then we will deal with Rakeesh. You have lost, Rakeesh! O’ros is renewed and now you must answer for the atrocities you have commited!



High General Rakeesh: Ah, the fated heroes have arrived. It would appear that you have bested me, Velen. But before I surrender and face the judgment of the Light there is one last thing I must do. Can you know victory without first knowing defeat? Come. Fail. Die.



REVELATIONS: Defeat High General Rakeesh.


Prophet Velen: We attack on your mark, (Name). Lead the charge!

Lady Liadrin: Reporting for duty, Highlord. Prophet, it has been ages since we last saw each other. Unfortunate circumstances for our reunion, but hopefully the outcome will be in our favor!

Prophet Velen: You have taken well to the Light, Liadrin! It would seem that the Sunwell has renewed your vigor!


High General Rakeesh: In my master’s house smolder the burning husks of a thousand worlds. I am here now to prepare a place for you amidst the ruin of tomorrow.


NOTE: Drop Rakeesh to 30% health — he retreats.


High General Rakeesh: You think you’ve won? You will know the taste of defeat, even if it means my own death! From the mouth of Argus comes your doom! For soon the annihilator will have its fill and detonate with the force of a collapsing star! Nothing but ash will be left where we stand!



Prophet Velen: No, this is all wrong. I… I have been here before, but that would mean… IT CANNOT BE! Heroes, we musn’t kill Rakeesh! Stop! Please!

Lady Liadrin: He’s left us no choice, Velen! If we don’t destroy the machine this place and every living soul inside will be annihilated!

Prophet Velen: If you will not spare him then I must stop you!


NOTE: Velen will start attacking you, but he does low damage. You must keep hitting Rakeesh.


High General Rakeesh: It will be your faces that I see in my last waking moments. A final agonizing memory before I am turned to ash and cast into oblivion. I welcome it…



Prophet Velen: You asked me if I foresaw this day, child.

Lady Liadrin: What’s wrong with the prophet?

Prophet Velen: I… I did… And until this moment I did not understand. In a time that is now just a whisper of a memory, I had a son. On the day of his birth, a vision came to me. In that vision I saw myself weeping as I held a dying eredar in my arms. His skin fel-pocked and battle-scarred. Like yours… But I buried that vision after Kil’jaeden took my family from me, and for eons let it be lost in the darkest recesses of my being. Now, finally, as I hold you in my arms, I understand. There is nothing left here for you, (Name). Take Light’s Heart and return to Khadgar. Tell him… Tell him that the Light died here this day. Farewell.


Objective Complete.

Purpose of the Mysterious Lightbound Object discovered: 1/1

You recieve item: Khadgar’s Beacon



Archmage Khadgar: Kil’jaeden took the child from Velen, let Velen believe that the boy had been killed, then raised the child as an agent of the Burning Legion with the express purpose of murdering his own father? That bastard waited 13,000 years to exact vengeance upon Velen for defying Sargeras and the Legion? The Deceiver indeed… For Velen to have to experience such tragedy after what he and his people have already been through is heartbreaking. Such a thing would test anyone’s faith.
