Activate the Ethereal Communication Device at the Azure Dragonshrine.

  • Activate the communication device


The device still hums with power. It must have been abandoned not long ago.

The nearby switch appears to activate it.


You will receive:

  • 15g 40s
  • 15,050 XP (level 100)


So the Ethereum has taken the Nexus... and yet, that seems the least of our worries.

Their plan to widen the breach into the Twisting Nether poses a threat to all of Azeroth. It seems fate has set you on this path for a reason, <name>. Not only must you recover the weapon you seek, but you must put a stop to the Ethereum as well!

I regret that I cannot assist you more directly, but I will guide you as I can.


Upon activating the Communication Device Switch, a large hologram of Nexus-Prince Bilaal appears above the device.

Nexus-Prince Bilaal says: Who dares to...? Ah, what have we here?
Nexus-Prince Bilaal says: Another intruder come to claim the treasures of the Nexus Vault!
Nexus-Prince Bilaal says: You are too late, mage! Even now the powers within the vault serve to widen the breach into the Twisting Nether.
Nexus-Prince Bilaal says: With this power, the Ethereum will become unstoppable. We will become void!
Nexus-Prince Bilaal disappears.
