Speak with Thrall at the Throne of Elements in Nagrand.


Greetings, <class>. The elements have grown more restless and we seem to be making little progress to a solution for this problem. Some of our wisest shaman have gathered in Nagrand at the Throne of the Elements to discuss what ails our land.

Head to the Throne of the Elements and speak with our Warchief, he will surely have some task for you.


You will receive: 1g 32s (at 80)


It is good to see you, <name>. Here at the Throne of Elements we may be able to uncover what ails Azeroth.


Take a portal to the Blasted Lands, fly through the Dark Portal and head to Nagrand. At the Throne of the Elements, Aggra, Thrall and Gavan are holding a quick war conference. Thrall has some important gossip text:

The elements in Azeroth are becoming more disturbed each passing day. The key to this disturbance lies here, in Nagrand. When Draenor was torn apart, all of the elemental planes were thrown into great turmoil and have never recovered. The rifts here form naturally and are a sign of a severely damaged world.
To see this same kind of disruption on Azeroth is not just unnerving, it could be a precursor to a type of destruction the world has never seen before.
<Name>, bring me any information you may find when walking around Outland.
I must spend time with the elements here, researching a way to calm the elements again in Azeroth...before it's too late.

Several small elemental invasions are taking place all over Outland, much like they are on Azeroth. Participating in destroying these Elemental rifts will contribute toward the feat of strength  Tripping the Rifts. Refer to that article for details.
