Kayn Sunfury: We need to figure out what rock Varedis is hiding under – the only way we’re going to do that is by getting inside this prison. Do what you must.

By Any Means

Quest Objectives

Gain entrance to the Violet Hold and interrogate Taldath the Destroyer to find out the location of the traitor Varedis.



Warden Alturas: I don’t trust your kind, demon hunter. You and the Legion are one and the same in my book.

(There’s no time to explain. Let us inside the hold, warden.)

Warden Alturas: If you don’t have time to explain, then I don’t have time to waste on you.

(Let us inside or I’ll show you the difference.)

Warden Alturas: Is that a threat? Need I remind you that you are surrounded by my guards in my prison?

(What do you have to lose either way?)

Warden Alturas: Fair enough. Let’s get this over with, then. You may enter the hold, but I will not put my guards’ lives at risk for your mission. Is that clear?

Kayn Sunfury: Crystal, Warden.

Convince Warden Alturas: 1/1

By Any Means


NOTE: Enter Violet Hold to start the scenario.


Warden Alturas: Lower the barrier and evacuate the hold. These Illidari wish to… exchange words… with the eredar.

Kirin Tor Protector bows its head slightly in agreement.

Warden Alturas: Follow me, I will open the cell for you.

Kayn Sunfury: If you would do the honors, Master, I will stand guard to ensure no one interferes.

Taldath the Destroyer: (Name)?! You dare stand before me after so many of your disgusting ilk have fallen? Release me now and I may yet spare you.

Warden Alturas: Meet Taldath – one of the most powerful eredar we’ve ever encountered. I’m sure you two will be fast friends. Remember, demon hunter – you were never here.

Taldath the Destroyer: FOOL! You dare stand against me alone?!



Taldath the Destroyer: Varedis will hunt down every one of your disgusting ilk – pity you won’t be around to witness it.

Kayn Sunfury: Where is he?! Where is Varedis? Tell us or die.

Taldath the Destroyer: Vermin! My lord wields power beyond your comprehension – he will be your end! Your efforts mean NOTHING! Soon all of Suramar will bow to my master’s will!

Kayn Sunfury: We have what we came for – finish him.

Taldath the Destroyer: The Twinblades … will be your end…

Taldath interrogated: 1/1



Kayn Sunfury: Suramar is not far from here.


Lore Reference

In the Burning Crusade expansion, Varedis was the demon hunter trainer at the Ruins of Karabor. Altruis told us in Nagrand we could use the Book of Fel Names to defeat Varedis. — Varedis Must Be Stopped.
