World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade – Rexxar in Outland

Blizzard Entertainment has added Rexxar and his loyal bear Misha as a quest NPC at the Thunderlord Village in Blade’s Edge Mountain.  Rexxar has come to Outland to search for his tribe of ogre-orcish half-breed: the Mok’Nathal.

For those recently acquainted with the Warcraft universe, Rexxar was a neutral hero added to Warcraft III: Frozen Throne (2003) and who became main focus in the independent Orc campaign, which introduced a quest system for Warcraft III: Frozen Throne WorldEditor.

Rexxar and his bear found a dying grunt who requested Rexxar to honor him by delivering his message to Thrall.  Thrall welcomed Rexxar as a guest.  The Mok’Nathal hero helped the Horde finish the construction of Orgrimmar, as well as complete many missions for members of the Horde such as Grunts, a Far Seer and Darkspear Trolls among others.  Rexxar defeated the leader of the Stonemaul ogres, earning his right as new leader of the Stonemaul.

For his unconditional support, Thrall proclaimed Rexxar as Champion of the Horde.  Thrall gave Rexxar the honor of carrying the Horde Flag leading the battle against Admiral Proudmoore at Northwatch Hold in the Barrens. After Warcraft III: Frozen Throne, Rexxar was next seen in World of Warcraft patrolling the road from Stonetalon Mountains to Feralas.  He is involved in the Onyxia’s Lair quest chain.  Now in World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade, the story is progressing with Rexxar returning back home to his tribe. Below is a transcript of the quests. Enjoy!

Garm Wolfbrother: Whatever advice I can give to aid in your fight against the ogres, you shall have it!

THE SPIRITS HAVE VOICES

Now that you can see me, there is something you must tell Rexxar. I know that he seeks his people, and I know where they are.

The Mok’Nathal, as they are known, have a village to the east beyond the Razor Ridge.

Go, give Rexxar this news. His people are in danger, and I know that he will want to come to their aid.

QUEST OBJECTIVES:

Garm Wolfbrother has told you where the Mok’Nathal, Rexxar’s people, live. Speak of this to Rexxar at Thunderlord Stronghold in the Blade’s Edge Mountains. Rewards: 69S

Rexxar: The search for my people. Our struggle against the Alliance. The war with the ogres and their gronn masters.

All of these things weigh heavy upon my shoulders.

Even I can use some help from time to time.

What is this you speak of?

Garm Wolfbrother? He was the last chieftain of the Thunderlord clan. If you have communed with his spirit, then it must be true.

WHISPERS ON THE WIND

Rexxar: I have chased rumors of the Mok’Nathal across Outland with nothing to show for it. Finally, we may have found their home.

But now that the moment is here, I am filled with unease. Unease that has kept me awake deep into the nights during my search. Will they accept me?

I … know their leader’s name: Leoroxx. Seek him out. You must be my eyes in this.

QUEST OBJECTIVES:

Search out Leoroxx at the Mok’Nathal Village in the Blade’s Edge Mountains. Rewards: 69S

Leoroxx: Our enemies surround us. I would have a better life for the Mok’Nathal, but the forces we are at battle with have chosen otherwise for us.

If you would prove yourself worthy to the Mok’Nathal, aid us in their elimination.

What brings you to our village?

REUNION

Leoroxx: So you come from thte world beyond the Portal? And you know of Rexxar. Oh yes, I am quite familiar with him.

You see, he is my son.

But he made his choice a lifetime ago. He is not one of us, and he is not welcome here. We have enough troubles, with the Bloodmaul ogres.

Know this: being born a half-breed does not make you Mok’Nathal.

QUEST OBJECTIVES:

Return to Rexxar at Thunderlord Stronghold in Blade’s Edge Mountains. Rewards: 1g 74S

Rexxar: So my father does live. I did not expect him to forgive me – that was never his way. But I had hoped that the years had dulled the anger he must have felt at my departure.

Thirty years ago, I left the Mok’Nathal to follow the Horde to Azeroth. Leoroxx was staunchly agaisnt it, but then, he never gave me any reason to stay. Still, a better welcome for this I had hoped for.

He wanted a Mok’Nathal for a son and he has one now, even if he will not know it.

I must open his eyes.

ON SPIRIT’S WINGS

If the Mok’Nathal are tormented by the Bloodmaul ogres, then I will stop them and their followers. Ogres are simple creatures, and there is little profit they could gain from harassing the Mok’Nathal.

There must be something more to this. Take Spirit, my hawk, and spy upon the conversations of the Bloodmaw’s leaders. He may go undetected where we cannot.

QUEST OBJECTIVES:

Find a Bloodmaul Taskmaster and a Bloodmaul Soothsayer engaged in conversation, then use Rexxar’s Whistle to summon Spirit to spy on them. When this is complete, return to Rexxar at Thunderlord Village in the Blade’s Edge Mountains. Rewards: 10g 69S

Rexxar: What have you learned?

(Spirit perches upon Rexxar’s shoulder, while Rexxar listens intently.)

So it is the sons of Gruul that are behind the ogres’ actions. They command the Bloodmaul ogres to destroy the Mok’Nathal to gain their favor.

NOTE: The quest broke here abruptly.  Blade’s Edge Mountains is still incomplete.  Blizzard said the quests are still in testing.  Hopefully, this chain will expand.  With the mention of the Gronn, this quest line might end sending you into Gruul’s Lair soon or later.

World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade – Heroes – Uther Lightbringer

There are various heroes available in World of Warcraft and its expansion The Burning Crusade. Below you can find out where to find them: screenshots and map provided.

UTHER THE LIGHTBRINGER

The Memorial of Uther the Lightbringer may be found at the Sorrow Hill, south of Andorhal in Western Plaguelands. Alliance players visit this place once a year during Hallow’s End to pay tribute to the fallen heroes. However, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade introduced a new quest given by a Blood Elf at the Bulwark in Tirisfal Glades. In this quest, you are sent to defile the memorial monument of Uther, and this trigger a short event where the ghost of Uther Lightbringer floats in front of the statue. He doesn’t offer a quest, but in general channel you may read a text sending you back to the Blood Elf, delivering a message where he forgives his old student for wishing to defile his monument.

THE SO-CALLED MARK OF THE LIGHTBRINGER

Mehlar Dawnblade: I WILL have my revenge! I was once a pupil of Uther Lightbringer, founder of the Knights of the Silver Hand. I saw how he mishandled Prince Arthas’s training. It led to the destruction of my homeland, Quel’Thalas, and I blame Uther and his incompetence for all of it! And now he has a tomb in his honor – how lovely.

My sources tell me that the scarlet fools are keeping one of his “holy” relics atop their guard tower near the gates of Hearthglen.

Go to the Western Plaguelands and retrieve it for me.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Obtain the Mark of the Lightbringer and return it to Mehlar Dawnblade at the Bulwark in the Western Plaguelands.

Rewards: 37S 50C

Mehlar Dawnblade: When you’ve managed to retrieve his ‘mark’, we’re going to change it a bit; make it better.

The first step is complete. Hand me the Mark of the Lightbringer and I will transform it into something more suitable.

Then my revenge will begin in earnest!


DEFILING UTHER’S TOMB

There, that’s better. I’ve added a little fel magic to it.

Now, you must take it to his resting place in the Western Plaguelands. Use the corrupted holy symbol in the presence of Uther’s statue to defile his tomb! You’ll have to get close for it to work.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Defile Uther’s Tomb and return to Mehlar Dawnblade at the Bulwark in the Western Plaguelands within 30 minutes.

Rewards: 46S 50C

Ghost of Uther Lightbringer: Why do you do this? Did I somehow wrong you in life? Ah, I see it now in your mind. This is the work of one of my former students … Mehlar Dawnblade. It is sad to know that his heart has turned so dark. Return to him. Return to Mehlar and tell him that I forgive him and that I understand why he believes what he does.

Mehlar Dawnblade: It is done, then? Uther’s Tomb is defiled?

Forgives me? He FORGIVES ME?!!!

I don’t care what that old ghost had to say – it was his fault! Everything that’s happened to Quel’Thalas was a result of his incompetence!

It is clear that the defiling did not work. Go, be gone from my sight! I must think this through.

Thanks, Deathkore for heads up.

World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade – Teron Gorefiend

World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade introduces one of the most thrilling and loved villain characters of Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal, long forgotten by Blizzard Entertainment.  Teron Gorefiend was the first Death Knight raised by Gul’dan from the dead warlocks of his Shadow Council—assassinated by Orgrim Doomhammer.  Teron later served Ner’zhul in retrieving various artifacts from Azeroth so that Ner’zhul could open rifts to other worlds.

Had it not been for Teron Gorefiend, there wouldn’t be a plot for World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade.  Those rifts or portals were what caused Draenor to be torn apart resulting in the floating debris of what is now known as Outland. You can read the mission briefings of Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal in our section.

Blizzard introduces Teron Gorefiend once more in an epic event where players are fooled by his disguise into bringing his cloak, truncheon and armor.  With these he escapes his spiritual prison by possessing the player.  Players will be able to fight a Draenei spirit using Teron Gorefiend’s model … and best yet, his abilities: Death and Decay, Haste and Death Coil.

In the early days of World of Warcraft – back in 2004, Duskwood quests mentioning the Dark Riders of Karazhan, the story of the Scythe of Elune, Arugal and the Worgen created a collective myth that fans have questioned over and over, and fantasized with, thinking that Teron Gorefiend was boss of the Dark Riders (Death Knights) in Karazhan.  That Teron may have escaped through one of the rifts of Ner’zhul and successfully taken over the homeworld of the Worgen or another world.

This is far from the truth as the storyline of the Burning Crusade expansion has proven everyone wrong.  The final boss in Karazhan is not Teron.  For Teron has been dead for years, bound and imprisoned within the constraints of the Altar of Shadows.  Teron’s spirit, disguised, manipulates you into gathering some armor in Shadowmoon Valley with the excuse to divinate the fate and location of Teron Gorefiend.  Once you have gathered three pieces of armor, he reveals to you his true identity and possesses you as his new vessel. The spirit of a Draenei attempts to destroy Teron to stop the unevitable.  Teron Gorefiend is back to life … and it is your fault. The experience of playing as Teron Gorefiend, though briefly, it is astounding.  Once the event is over, he mounts his steed and yells: “Death incarnate has been released upon the world once more!  Teron Gorefiend has returned … !

Nevertheless, the dark riders of Karazhan do resemble the ghostriders of Karabor.  And the horse of Attumen the Huntsman—Midnight—is the exact model of the Ghostriders Teron Gorefiend asks us to retrieve his truncheon from these Ghostriders of Karabor who ride around the roads of Shadowmoon Valley.

Now the important stuff … how to get this quest.  On the horde side, go to Shadowmoon Village – a Horde base. Talk to Chief Apothecary Hildagard. At first she gives you a very simple quest to gather ashes located all around the edge of Deathforge, to the southeast.  Once you return 15 ashes, the next quest is Spectrecles.

SPECTRECLES

Chief Apothecary Hildagard: I call them “Spectrecles.” Clever, no?  When you equip these goggles, you will be able to see the spirits of Shadowmoon Valley.

Before I let you have them, though, you must promise me that you will help us clear out the ghosts at the village.

Take the goggles and destroy any and all spirits that you see wandering about Shadowmoon Village.  Hopefully, destroying these spirits will force any that remain to move elsewhere.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Chief Apothecary Hildagard at Shadowmoon Village in Shadowmoon Valley wants you to slay 12 Shadowmoon Zealots.

Note: When spirits are destroyed, they emote many messages that surprised to say the least:

Shadowmoon Zealot emotes:

1. Pray that the chilling embrace of Teron Gorefiend does not reach out for you …
2. We will never dissipate mortal … Our fate is tied to Gorefiend…
3. It is you who have invaded our home.  Gorefiend will avenge us!

Apothecary Hildagard: If you lose your goggles, let me know and I will craft another pair.  Gorefiend?  T … Teron Gorefiend?  But … How?

How could Gorefiend be here?  This is impossible!

The legend of Teron Gorefiend is one that causes even the Forsaken to tremble in fear.  By all accounts, Gorefiend was a warlock of Gul’dan – extremely powerful in his own right.  When Gorefiend was slain by Orgrim Doomhammer, Gul’dan took the soul of the fallen warlock and placed it inside the broken shell of a slain knight of Stormwind.  And so was born the first death knight of the Horde.

TERON GOREFIEND – LORE AND LEGEND

Stories abound about the life of Teron Gorefiend, but most are just that – stories.  We do not know what happened to Gorefiend after he returned to Draenor.

The only thing we are certain of is that he has already died once.

I have heard the scouts here speaking of an ancient orc spirit that resides at the Altar of Shadows, far to the southeast, across the Netherwing Fields and through Netherwing Pass.  Take the Spectrecles and track this orc down.  He will surely have more information on Gorefiend.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Chief Apothecary Hildagard at Shadowmoon Village in Shadowmoon Valley wants you to find the Ancient Shadowmoon Spirit.

If you lose your Spectrecles, Chief Apothecary Hildagard can make you a new pair.

TERON GOREFIEND – LORE AND LEGEND (Part 2)

Ancient Shadowmoon Spirit: Gorefiend?  Why, I have not heard that name in ages!

After the Second War, Gorefiend returned here, along with his death knights.  Unable to cope with the terrible nature of his new form and without the support of his beloved leader, Gul’dan, Gorefiend killed himself.

If he walks these lands now as a spirit it is news to me.  Yet, perhaps I can divine such knowledge with your assistance.

DIVINATION: GOREFIEND’S CLOAK

Many a cruel act he commited but none so cold as the slaughter of the clerics of Karabor.

After Gul’dan’s Horde defeated the draenei of Karabor, the surviving clerics of Karabor were marched out, told that they were to be taken to Hellfire Citadel as prisoners of war.

Gorefiend, not yet a death knight, murdered each and every last one of them in cold blood.  They now roam in front of the Black Temple with vengeance in their hearts.

It is the clerics of Karabor that hold the cloak of Gorefiend.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

The Ancient Shadowmoon Spirit at the Altar of Shadows in southeast Shadowmoon Valley wants you to recover Gorefiend’s Cloak.

DIVINATION: GOREFIEND’S ARMOR

In life, Gorefiend was a bastard, but in death, Gorefiend was an unmitigated terror.

To the southeast you will find Netherwing Ledge.  What was once part of the mainland of Shadowmoon is now a floating island in the sky.

Vhel’kur, spawn of Deathwing, once called it his home, but now knows it as his grave.  He flies an endless circle above the island, seething at his defeat to Gorefiend.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

The Ancient Shadowmoon Spirit at the Altar of Shadows in southeast Shadowmoon Valley wants you to recover Gorefiend’s Armor.

DIVINATION: GOREFIEND’S TRUNCHEON

One by one they knelt before him, offering their lives as a show of allegiance.  Gorefiend hoisted his sickle and cut clean their heads.  Shortly after this slaughter, Gorefiend took his own life.

But this was not act of contrition! No, Gorefiend sought immortality!  From the corpses of the fallen death knights rose the Ghostriders of Karabor.

They now ride the roads encircling the Hand of Guldan, awaiting the day that their master returns.  It is they who hold the truncheon of Gorefiend.  Retrieve it …

QUEST OBJECTIVES

The Ancient Shadowmoon Spirit at the Altar of Shadows in southeast Shadowmoon Valley wants you to recover Gorefiend’s Truncheon.

Only with all three united may I divine the secrets you so desperately seek!

I must have all of the pieces before I am able to divine the fate of Gorefiend.

TERON GOREFIEND, I AM …

With Gorefiend’s items restored, there is but one last piece to this puzzle: A host.

(The ancient shadowmoon spirit’s lips curl up to form a wicked grin.)

Surely you did not believe the fairly tale that I told you.  The Altar of Shadows is my prison.  Without your help, I would have been stuck here for all eternity.  Now, I will take over your body and you will destroy my captors and break these bonds.  Refuse and we will both be stuck here forever.

Teron Gorefiend will be free!

QUEST OBJECTIVES

The Ancient Shadowmoon Spirit has used you as a pawn!  Now that you have collected the items he required, he has revealed himself to be Teron Gorefiend.  To break free of his possession, you must do his bidding and slay Krasius the Ancient Watcher.

If you succeed, return to Chief Apothecary Hildagard at Shadowmoon Village.

EMOTE:

Teron Gorefiend: Your body is mine!  Our fates are forever intertwined.

Karsius the Ancient Watcher: Your pathetic attempt to escape will be short lived, Gorefiend.  Let the girl go and submit!  Even with your armor and weapons, you cannot defeat teh ancients!

Teron Gorefiend: Waste no time, fool!  Use our power to kill those that stand in our way!  Destroy Karsius before you are subdued!

NOTE: Teron possesses you, and now your character is replaced by Teron Gorefiend’s model.  You are Teron.  Your abilities to fight Karsius are:

  • Unholy Armor: 600 mana – instant cast – 1 sec cooldown – Absorbs 1080 to 1320 physical damage.  Lasts 15 sec.
  • Touch of Darkness: 2500 mana – 20 yd range – Instant cast – Steals 4375 to 5625 life from target enemy.
  • Death and Decay: 1000 mana – 30 yd range – 2 sec cast – 30 sec cooldown – 700 to 900 shadow damage inflicted every 2 sec to all targets in the affected area.
  • Haste: 3500 mana – Instant cast – Increases your haste rating by 300 for until cancelled.

 

NOTE: After defeating Karsius the Ancient Watcher, Teron Gorefiend mounts on his Death Steed and rides off saying …

Teron Gorefiend: Death incarnate has been released upon the world once more! Teron Gorefiend has returned …

Karsius the Ancient Watcher: What … have you done …

NOTE: After turning in the quest with Chief Apotechary Hildagard at Shadowmoon Village …

Chief Apothecary Hildagard: You must right this wrong.  After all, it is your fault.  Take one of these helmets.  They are each infused with the ever-burning ash that you retrieved for me.  More importantly, they will allow you to see the ghosts of Shadowmoon, including Teron Gorefiend.

Should you ever find Teron Gorefiend, destroy him.

World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade – Reputation Rewards

There are many factions in World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade, and most offer reputation rewards through a Quartermaster NPC vendor.  Click on the links below to see the reputation rewards.  The available reputation factions are:

Outland

 

Shattrath City

 

Azeroth

Burning Crusade – Tyrygosa, Jorad Mace, and the Nether Dragons

Warcraft lore trascends beyond the RTS game spin-offs into pocketbooks, RPG Books, Trading Card Games, and even Manga.  Such is the case with Kalecgos, Anveena, Dar’Khan, Tyrygosa and Jorad Mace—who are characters of Warcraft Manga: The Sunwell Trilogy.  Dar’Khan is a high elf traitor who joined Arthas in the manga, and has trascended to be an NPC in a blood elf quest of World of Warcraft?: Burning Crusade?.  Anveena—the embodiment of the Essence of the Sunwell—is an NPC in the MMORPG, and now Tyrygosa the blue dragon and Jorad Mace the Paladin are part of the MMORPG as quest-giving NPCs. This is a storyline involving Tyrygosa and Jorad Mace with the Nether Dragons.

Wind Trader Marid: There are only 3 kinds of people in this world: competitors, customers and employees. Competitors are to be crushed ruthlessly, customers indulged, and employees strictly supervised.

Independent contractors are a myth. They want to be paid better than employees, but treated like customers. Never trust one who calls himself by that title.

A NOT-SO-MODEST PROPOSAL

From the look on your face, I can tell you’re a (race) who appreciates a good profit.

I’ve built a reputation as a dealer in exotic goods, and I’m about to launch a new venture.

I need a reliable subcontractor to procure the goods from the Celestial Ridge.

First, you’ll need to re-energize a teleport pad. There is a spare power pack in Access Shaft Zeon, from our ill-fated deal with the blood elves. The Protectorate is operating in there, so you may be able to follow their tracers to your goal.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Retrive the Teleporter Power Pack and bring it to the Ethereal Teleport Pad on the Celestial Ridge to the east of Manaforge Ultris. Activate the pad and give the Teleporter Power Pack to the image of Wind Trader Marid so he can install it. Rewards: 11g 30S.

(This Ethereal teleport pad is covered in brightly colored buttons and switches, but seems to have fallen into disuse.

> Attempt to contact Wind Trader Marid.

Wind Trader Marid: Are you prepared to discuss business now?

This power cell should hold for our purposes. Once the money starts rolling in, we’ll improve it even more.

Enough with such things. Every moment spent in discussion translates to lost profit.

GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS

As you’ve no doubt seen, the area is teeming with nether dragons in various stages of growth. All nether dragons, young and old, contain an essence that’s highly desired by K—err, by a client of mine.

Most people aren’t willing to risk their lives to gather it, so we’ve got the place to ourselves. You can start by gathering the essence from any of the creatures out here, but it’s imperative that we start building a supply right away. Return to me once you have the first batch.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Gather 15 Nether Dragon Essence, then return to the Ethereal Teleport Pad area. Nether Dragon Essence may be obtained from Nether Drakes or Phase Hatchlings.

(** When reaching the Teleport Pad, a female voice can be heard hidden behind the rocks. **)

Tyri: There’s no need to contact the conniving ethereal. Come, we have much to discuss. I’m certain you have many questions, all of which will be answered in due time. And to think, that wretched ethereal was going to sell these essences to the blood elves like so much candy …

FORMAL INTRODUCTIONS

Greetings. Do not be alarmed. This is merely a projection of my current form. It’s the only way my companion and I could keep watch without revealing ourselves.

The ethereal who approached you, Marid, is little better than a swindler in the guise of a legitimate merchant. I’d like you to consider working with me instead. My purpose out here is to find out more about the unusual dragonkin on this ridge. Meet me at the north end of the ridge and we will discuss this further.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Find Tyri at the north end of the Celestial Ridge and speak with her.

Tyri: I’ve never seen anything like these nether dragons. They seem to have inherited their sire’s temperment, but they have become something entirely different.

My name is Tyrygosa, of the brood of Malygos, but most call me “Tyri.” My companion is the paladin Jorad Mace.

Word of these strange dragonkin has already traveled far and I fear that too many will rush to exploit them for profit without realizing the true nature of what they’re dealing with. With your help, we’re hoping to gain insight into these creatures before others discover their presence. Rewards: 1g 71S.

A PROMISING START

We’ve come here to investigate rumors of a strange breed of dragons, perhaps even descendents of Deathwing himself. These are clearly not ordinary black dragons, though.

We’ll know more once we’ve had a chance to examine their eggs. Their hatred for my flight runs deep, so I can’t get close enough to gather the eggs. Will you agree to help?

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Gather 15 Nether Dragonkin Eggs, then return to Tyri and Jorad on the Celestial Ridge. Reward: 11g 30S.

Tyri: Were you able to gather the eggs? These will work quite nicely. Thank you for agreeing to help us.

Before we can continue, however, there is something else we’ll need to address.

TROUBLESOME DISTRACTIONS

Your former employer, Wind Trader Marid, must’ve gotten wind that you’re helping us now. Through my projection, I’ve seen his nether-stalkers entering the area, hoping to track us down.

We’ve been able evade them so far, but Marid must be dealt with before the problem grows more severe.

If your impressions of Marid are correct, he’ll do just about anything to secure the supply of his product. Return to him and tell him you’re prepared to offer a deal. Lure him away and slay him.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Speak with Wind Trader Marid and lure him away from his trading post. Deal with him and then return to Tyri and Jorad on the Celestial Ridge.

> Wind Trader Marid, I’ve returned with more information on the nether drakes. I’m prepared to be your business partner, and for an extra sum, I’ll take care of that troublesome elf and her human friend.

Wind Trader Marid: Let us hold our discussion in a more … private place. Follow me. You didn’t really think I’d do business with you again, did you? Sometimes, the best way to return to profitability is to know when to cut your losses.

Tyri: Now that that troublesome ethereal has been dealth with, we can focus our efforts on understanding these nether dragons. I’ve had chance to examine the eggs and I’ve made a few discoveries.

SECURING THE CELESTIAL RIDGE

The nether dragons have the same ferocious temperament as their black dragon forbears, but there is something entirely alien about them. They hatch and mature rapidly, harnessing the strange energies that forged their kind in the destruction of Draenor.

There is so much more I need to know about them, but I believe the powers may be of use to my own flight. If we can displace the leader of these drakes, Veraku, with a show of dominance, we can cow the rest of them into submission.

QUEST OBJECTIVE

Use the Challenge of the Blue Flight to provoke Veraku on the southern edge of the Celestial Ridge. Defeat him and return to Tyri and Jorad on the Celestial Ridge.

ITEM: Challenge of the Blue Flight – Use: Challenge the nether dragon Veraku. The challenge must be issued while standing near the Dragon Skeleton on the southern part of the Celestial Ridge.

Tyri: Have you challenged and defeated Veraku? Well done. Well done indeed. The nether dragonkin will not accept a blue dragon among them at first, but with time and the firm demonstration of my authority, they will come around. Scattered, isolated, and without a definitive leader, we must be vigilant in preventing them from falling under the sway of a malevolent power, keeping them in check all the while.

Burning Crusade – The Ethereum

Commander Ameer: What do you know about ethereals, fleshling?

You undoubtedly view us all in the same light, oblivious to the conflicts and struggles between the differing factions.

Perhaps it is time for an introduction.  I am Commander Ameer of the Protectorate – also your only hope of resolving the infestation of both void creature and Ethereum in this area.

> What are Ethereum?

Commander Ameer: The Ethereum were the ruling class of ethereal on my homeworld of K’aresh.  Tragically, we were forced to evacuate K’aresh shortly before the void lord, Dimensius, unleashed his void armies upon the world and utterly decimated all that stood in his way.  For this act, the Ethereum vowed vengeance.  They have been tracking Dimensius ever since …

The Protectorate, however, were not a reaction to Dimensius.  We were a reaction to Ethereum.

> I don’t understand.  What do you mean, Ameer?

Commander Ameer: The Ethereum have grown dark … twisted.  Vengeance has become their only recourse and any that would stand in their way or not join their cause are considered enemies.  Many saw that the Ethereum were plummeting into madness and left.  Several of the Nexus-Princes of the Ethereum council abandoned the Ethereum to form other groups and factions with different goals.  The Consortium are one such example of an off-shoot group.  The Protectorate another …

> So what is your purpose?

Commander Ameer: We feel that the Ethereum are as great a threat to our existence as Dimensius.  Both must be stopped …

> I think I understand now.  Can I help with any of this?  The Ethereum and void creatures are a threat to our survival as well.

THE ETHEREUM

Directly south of here you will find the Ethereum Staging Grounds.  The Ethereum are there, preparing for something … Perhaps an assault on Ultris.

We can’t take any chances, though.  Break through their perimeter defenses and take out their training facility.

Once you’ve destroyed their soldiers and Captain Zovax, locate Ethereum transponder Zeta and use it to establish contact with me to get your next set of orders.

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Commander Ameer wants you to kill 5 Ethereum Assassins, 5 Ethereum Soldiers, 2 Ethereum Researchers and Captain Zovax, then activate Ethereum Transponder Zeta.  Rewards: 6g 90S

Burning Crusade – Sha’tar Reputation Rewards

Sha’tar is the name the Aldor call the Naaru. Many quests in Shattrath City, Nagrand, Auchindoun: Shadow Laberynths dungeon-wing, and Netherstorm may help you increase reputation with the Sha’tar.  Additionally, blood elves in Shadowmoon Valley drop signet of Kael’thas, which can be turned in to an NPC to gain Sha’tar reputation.  Not only can you get great rewards, you can also obtain recipes and a key to unlock the Heroic mode of Tempest Keep instances for an enhanced loot table.  The NPC vendor granting Sha’tar rewards is Almaador (Sha’tari Quartermaster). You may find him at the Terrace of Light in Shattrath City.

The Sha’tar Story

Ishanah is the High Priestess of the Aldor, located at the Shrine of Undending Light at the Aldor Rise in Shattrath City (Outland).

Ishanah: “Welcome. We are the Aldor, priests of the Light and servants of the Sha’tar.

You are welcome to stay with us for as long as you need.

> Who are the Sha’tar?

“Born from light” would be a close translation for Sha’tar.  It is the name we gave to the naaru who reclaimed Shattrath City from the agents of Illidan.

> Isn’t Shattrath a draenei city?  Why do you allow others here?

Shattrath is more than a staging ground for war against the Burning Legion and Illidan.  It serves as a sanctuary to those seeking to escape the violence surrounding us.

We would be hypocrites if we turned the refugees away.

If your question refers to the Scryers, then I will respond that while I may not like them or their leader’s wild claims of visions of redemption.  It is not for us to question the wisdom of the naaru.

These are difficult times.  We need allies where we can find them.
