Witness Bolvar's vision of the Maw.


When I put the Lich King's crown upon my head, I wanted the world to believe I was dead. Even my daughter, Taelia. I... thought a lie would be kinder than the truth.

But she is no longer the little girl I left in Kul Tiras. I see my choice was a selfish one.

<Bolvar pauses.>

She and Lady Menethil have asked me to peer into the Maw to see if our allies yet live. It is a dangerous request, but one I cannot refuse.

Help me focus on the broken helm. Together, we may find a glimpse of truth.


You will receive:


There is much to do.


A troubling vision indeed. But we must not give up hope.


On accept:

Highlord Bolvar Fordragon says: The broken Helm still resonates with the power of the Lich King. The power... of the Maw.
Highlord Bolvar Fordragon says: Together, we can focus our sight deep into the Jailer's realm. But beware. Do not lose yourself within the darkness.

Interact with the Helm of Domination and a cinematic plays, "Enter the Maw":

Jaina Proudmoore: I won't. Not again. No. No! I will not yield! My mind is my own! Do you hear me?!
Thrall: Whoever you are, whatever you want, I will fight you! You will not break me!
Sylvanas Windrunner: They have breached the Seat of the Primus and discovered his warning.
The Jailer: Unfortunate, but of little consequence. Our eyes are everywhere. This nuisance will be dealt with.

On the other side:

Highlord Bolvar Fordragon says: That is... all I can see. It is... too dangerous to push further.
Taelia Fordragon says: I could make out the Lord Admiral's voice, and what must have been Thrall's as well. Their cries... they chilled me to the bone!
Calia Menethil says: I did not hear Anduin, nor Baine Bloodhoof. Highlord, are you certain you cannot try again?
Highlord Bolvar Fordragon says: Not yet, Calia. There is a price to be paid for such visions. I dare not attempt another so soon.
Tal-lnara says: Highlord, this mortal bears an urgent warning from the Primus of Maldraxxus. They must see it delivered to the other realms.
Highlord Bolvar Fordragon says: Please aid them, Honored Voice, while I talk with the others. We must consider the implications of what we've seen.

A troubling vision indeed. At least we know our allies live.

Well... some of them. But we must not give up hope.
