Search the Azure Dragonshrine for clues regarding the current state of the Nexus.


If you seek the Nexus, I would warn not to rush headlong. There are strange happenings in Coldarra, and it would be best to gather some information before proceeding.

During my last visit to the Dragonblight, I sensed unusual energies from the Azure Dragonshrine. Since this place was very closely tied to Malygos' plans during the Nexus Wars, whatever is present there may explain the current state of the Nexus.

I cannot accompany you, but this crystal can be used to communicate with me. Good luck.


You will receive:

  • 15g 40s
  • 15,050 XP (level 100)


The communication device is inactive.


This appears to be a communication device commonly utilized by the ethereals.

Perhaps it could be the key to finding out who is behind the happenings at the Dragonshrine.


The quickest way to the Azure Dragonshrine is, as the quest objectives point out, the portal in the Portrait Room, which is reached by standing in the central teleporter in the Chamber of the Guardian. In Dragonblight, low-level characters have access to the Summon Dragon Flight extra action button that summons Wyrmrest Temple Drake as a mount (vehicle).

At the Azure Dragonshrine, the forces of the blue dragonflight have been slaughtered, and Seething Voids move about the area.

Upon interacting with clues in the area, the Image of Kalec briefly appears and explains their significance.

Strange Portal:

Image of Kalec says: This portal is very similar to ones used by the ethereals in Outland.
Image of Kalec says: Could they be the threat? What did Malygos promise them?

Void Siphon:

Image of Kalec says: This device appears to draw upon the void energy released when Malygos forced Azeroth's ley lines into the Twisting Nether.
Image of Kalec says: The design looks very familiar...

Void-Tainted Blade:

Image of Kalec says: This weapon has been infused with dark energies from the Twisting Nether.
Image of Kalec says: Whoever wielded it must be seeking to harness void energy. But for what purpose?

After interacting with all three types of clues, head to the southeastern corner of the Dragonshrine to find the Ethereal Communication Device.

Image of Kalec says: Yet more evidence of ethereal technology. This may be an unfortunate turn.
Image of Kalec says: There's only one way to find out who's really behind this.
