Take the Remnant of Nhal'athoth to Velen on the Vindicaar.


That was... an intense experience.

<Alleria rubs her forehead.>

It is difficult to 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.


You will learn the following: [Lightforged Beacon: Shadowguard Incursion]

You will also receive: 9g 70s 50 Veiled Argunite


What is this? Such darkness...


What is it you bring, <name>?

<Velen peers down upon the cold, dense object.>

Grand Artificer Romuul says: Ah, you're alive! A beacon is inbound.
Locus-Walker says: How do you feel?
Alleria Windrunner says: My head is... swimming.
Locus-Walker says: Remember... So long as your mind is your own, you command this power. It does not command you.
Alleria Windrunner says: How did you do it by yourself?
Locus-Walker says: Ah, well. Perhaps I will tell you one day. Until then, I will be keeping an eye on your progress.
Locus-Walker says: Farewell for now.
The Locus-Walker takes his leave.
Alleria Windrunner says: You should return to the Vindicaar and share what we have learned.
Alleria Windrunner says: My path takes me into the Seat of the Triumvirate... to whatever fate awaits me there.
Alleria Windrunner says: I am certain Velen will understand.
Alleria hurries off towards the Seat.
