Go to Netherlight Temple using the priest's portal in Dalaran, then defend Netherlight Temple and slay Lord Balnazzar.

  • Take the portal to Netherlight Temple in Dalaran
  • The Defense of Netherlight Temple scenario completed


Highlord, thank goodness you've arrived! The invasion of Netherlight Temple has begun.

Our forces are already waiting on the other side of the portal.

Join them, and we will close the trap around Lord Balnazzar.


You will receive: 19g 40s


The priests have always been our allies and friends. Now, we stand united against a common cause.


Victory is ours, Highlord.


The portal to the priest class hall is located next to the paladin class hall portal in Dalaran.

Stage 1: Join the Battle

  • Join the battle at Netherlight Temple
Velen stands in the center of The Hall of Balance with Saa'ra and channels an aura of Light, while Yalia Sagewhisper, Natalie Seline, and High Priestess Ishanah hold their ground while the Paladins arrive.
Lord Maxwell Tyrosus says: Paladins of the Silver Hand, rally to the Highlord! Attack!

Stage 2: Defeat Balnazzar's Lieutenants

Ogoroth is located in the Sanctuary of the Light while Torenai the Souleater is located in the Sanctuary of the Void. As always, avoid their abilities.

The reinforcements join the fight!
Balnazzar says: Long have we searched for you, Prophet Velen. Here, you thought yourself safe from the Legion's gaze.
Balnazzar says: Now, finally, your SOUL IS MINE!
Prophet Velen says: Balnazzar, your arrogance is mighty. But Azeroth's heroes will stand against you!

Stage 3: Destroy Legion portals.

  • Legion Portal destroyed (4)

The Legion portals are all located in the alcoves of The Halls of Balance.

Final Stage: Defeat Balnazzar

Do not concern yourself with adds for this fight; they will focus on your allies.

Balnazzar leaves the protection of the fel shielding after the last Legion portal has been destroyed.
Balnazzar says: Impressive, hero. Let us see how you do without your allies!
Everyone except Velen and Saa'ra are suddenly imprisoned in a fel prison.

After being somewhat injured, Balnazzar will retreat and take 99% reduced damage.

Balnazzar says: Enough! I tire of this game.
Balnazzar says: Now, taste the TRUE might, of THE BURNING LEGION!!!
Balnazzar rips open multiple portals and his forces stream forth once more, in even greater numbers.
Lord Maxwell Tyrosus says: Hold your ground! They won't take us down without a fight!
Aponi Brightmane says: There are too many!
Delas Moonfang says: It is no use! The prophet's vision has come to pass...
Balnazzar says: Where is your Light now, heroes?

A short cutscene will play, showing a dimensional ship approaching in the background behind Balnazzar.

Lothraxion says: Allies, do not despair. It is I, Lothraxion, High Commander of the Grand Army of the Light.
A new dreadlord appears... but this one is radiating with the Light!
Lothraxion says: On order of High Exarch Turalyon, we came as fast as we could. I am sending reinforcements down to join you.
The swirls of light fanning out from Lothraxion disappear as Imperial Juggernauts teleport in to join the battle.
Lothraxion says: Heroes, rally beneath the Light! Balnazzar, prepare to meet your end.
Balnazzar says: No! I will NEVER be defeated!

Lothraxion will tank Balnazzar for you, allowing you to focus on bringing down the latter.

The priest champions, their Silver Hand allies, and Lothraxion gather in a circle around Velen and Saa'ra.
Delas Moonfang says: We did it. The dreadlord is dead.
Prophet Velen says: Thank you, paladins of the Silver Hand.
Prophet Velen says: A great enemy is defeated this day. We have shown the Legion that Azeroth will not fall quietly.
Lothraxion says: Prophet Velen, warriors of light, a well earned victory. I expected nothing less from the heroes of Azeroth.
Lothraxion says: Highlord, let us return to your order hall. We have much to discuss.

Return to the Sanctum of Light and speak to Lord Maxwell Tyrosus in the Hall of Champions area.
