Before Mayla may be pronounced High Chieftain, there is one more vision she must see. I wish to show you as well.

It is an ancient secret, handed down along the Highmountain bloodline. I ask for your discretion in keeping it that way.

That day, the hammer freed me of the corruption of the Black Dragonflight.

In gratitude, I have faithfully served the Highmountain family since Huln rescued me from this pit.

It has been my honor and my pleasure to watch each of his descendants earn the title of High Chieftain.



Follow Mayla and Ebonhorn up the ramp immediately to the east.

Mayla Highmountain says: So Huln never backed down, no matter the enemy?
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn says: History is forged by the hearts of heroes, child. This is the truth your father wanted you to see.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn says: Our people need a leader like Huln. One with the strength and courage to face any obstacle. Qualities you have proven to possess.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn says: And so there is one final vision you must witness. This is a secret passed from High Chieftain to High Chieftain since the day Huln banished Deathwing.
Upon interacting with the brazier, visions of Huln Highmountain, Igrul the Scalebane and three large but unmoving stone dragons appear.
Igrul the Scalebane says: These eggs are corrupted. We should destroy them now.
Huln Highmountain says: There is more than one way to deal with corruption.
Huln lifts the  [Hammer of Khaz'goroth] above his head and begins to purify some of the dragon eggs. However, the Obsidian Reclaimers now begin to awaken one by one and attack Igrul and the player.
Igrul the Scalebane says: The guardians, they are awaking!
After killing the first reclaimer:
Huln Highmountain says: Not all of these eggs shall survive. But those that do should be free of Deathwing's corruption.
After killing the second one:
Huln Highmountain says: Keep them off me just a little longer. One of the eggs is starting to hatch.
After killing the last reclaimer, a black dragon whelp named Ebyssian emerges from the egg.
Huln Highmountain says: Look! One survived. Such a small thing, and with little black horns.
Huln kneels.
Huln Highmountain says: I shall call you Ebonhorn.
The vision ends.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn says: So it was that Huln's mercy gained the allegiance of his family's oldest ally: me.
Ebonhorn transforms into a large, full-grown black dragon.
Mayla Highmountain says: What? How? The whole time?!
Ebyssian says: Mayla, I am still the same spiritwalker you have known your entire life. Know that regardless of what happens, I serve the High Chieftain.
Ebyssian says: Which gives me great honor to say this next part. Mayla Highmountain, I hereby pronounce you High Chieftain. Long may you stand!
