Obtain the [Ley Line Information] and use it to gain information from the Ley Line Focus in the Lothalor Woodlands.

Then, return to the Image of Archmage Modera at Stars' Rest.

  • Ley line focus information retrieved


I'm convinced that there must be more of these foci, each of them in-turn redirecting the ley line energies. We still don't know precisely what they're doing with all of that power, though.

My guess is that you'll find another one atop the Lothalor Woodlands to the southeast. Once again you'll need to find the person in charge and take whatever controlling device they have in their possession as I'm sure that each focus has its own.

Be careful, <name> Those woods are very dangerous.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:

Inv gauntlets 15.png [Azurehunter Handguards] Inv bracer 14.png [Dalaran Sentry Wristbraces]

You will also receive: 5g


What did you find up in the woods?


They're empowering their forces with it? That doesn't make any sense; the mage hunters aren't that powerful.

This must mean that they're only using the magic at the terminus of wherever they've directed the ley line to.

We're going to need more information if we're to have a chance at finding and stopping them!


  • Pick up B [15-30] Strengthen the Ancients on the way!
  • Lieutenant Ta'zinni circles the Ley Line Focus. Kill him to loot the Focus Control Amulet.
  • Use the Focus Control Amulet to channel information from the Ley Line Focus. You will gain the buff:

  • Ley Line Information
  • The magical energies are being repurposed in such a way as to significantly empower those that they are being used on. The power continues to flow eastward.

Then you can return to Archmage Modera.
