Previous N [45R] The Nighthold: Darkness Calls


Absorb the combined power of the Nightshards and the  [Eye of Gul'dan] using the  [Heart of Zin-Azshari] at the Lunar Crucible.

  • Travel to the Lunar Crucible
  • Power absorbed


At long last, it is time to reap the fruits of your labors.

Lothrius tells of a place deep in the former Moon Guard Stronghold used to infuse new Guards with immense power. It will be the perfect place to tap into and augment the power of the Nightshards you gathered.

Gather your effects and meet me there when you are ready, and we will use the Heart to finally reveal the great power within your artifact.


You will learn: Ancient Power-Unlocks the Ancient artifact appearances.

You will also receive: 19g 40s


This is a truly momentous occasion.


Your artifact's new form is even more fantastic than I imagined.

Please, take what remains of the Heart as a token of my gratitude for such a marvelous adventure-there is still a fair bit of power left inside it.


On accept:

Lothrius Mooncaller says: There's only one place where we can tap into the power within the shards: the Lunar Crucible.
Syrana Starweaver says: Of course! But the entire stronghold is still crawling with Nightborne.
Thalrenus Rivertree says: Then I suppose we'll have to ask them to leave.
Archmage Kalec says: I'll secure the Heart and meet you there. The Moon Guard should have the area secured when we arrive.

Kalec and the night elves teleport the materials and themselves away to the Lunar Crucible.

Arriving at the crucible:

Lothrius Mooncaller says: It is good to be back home again, even if just for a little while.
Thalrenus Rivertree says: We are ready to begin when you are.

The ritual begins.

Thalrenus Rivertree says: Elun'falah shalar.
Lothrius Mooncaller says: Ishnu-talah Kaldorei.
Archmage Kalec says: Anar'endal dracon belora.
Syrana Starweaver says: Elun'orin torel!
Archmage Kalec says: Now is your moment, <name>. Unleash the power hidden deep within!

The adventurer unleashes the ancient power, completing the ritual.

Archmage Kalec says: It worked. It really worked!

On completion:

Archmage Kalec says: Thank you for the truly incredible journey. If you ever long for another adventure, you know where to find me.

The night elves teleport back to Shal'Aran, and Kalec to Dalaran.
