Establish a portal to the Twisting Nether at the Stair of Destiny in Outland.


Kruul boasts damnation, but his power has not yet fully manifested. His minions have taken his heart to hasten his rebirth in the nether.

We do not have much time.

Go to the place of Kruul's fall at the Stairs of Destiny in desolate Outland, where the link to his soul is strongest. There you must pry open the way to his realm.

I must prepare for the battle to come. Good luck, champion.


You will receive:

  • 1g 94s
  • 1,650 XP


Lord Illidan led us into glorious battle against Kruul long ago. Now you must do the same.


We must strike before Kruul reaches his full strength, but we're going to need help.


Use the portal conjured by Velen. If you have not yet switched to your tanking specialization, remember to do so before speaking with Kor'vas.

While Kor'vas is charging the Soul Key, there will be a couple waves of mobs. When the Doomheralds appear, intercept them quickly so they will not spawn additional mobs.

Prophet Velen says: May fate favor you. Kruul's minions will surely flock to his aid.
Stair of Destiny
The corpses of slain demons and Alliance and Horde forces lay strewn about.
Kor'vas Bloodthorn says: It appears Kruul's lackeys were just here.
Kor'vas Bloodthorn says: I should be able to reactivate their portal. This place teems with usable souls.
Kor'vas Bloodthorn
Gossip Let's get started.
Kor'vas Bloodthorn says: Keep your wits about you. I doubt we'll be alone for long.
First wave
Kor'vas Bloodthorn says: The enemy approaches!
Highlord Kruul says: You dare stand at the gate to my realm? So be it.
Second wave
Kor'vas Bloodthorn says: Watch out! More incoming!
Highlord Kruul says: With every moment my power grows. Your end is nigh!
Lord Vazuun
Kor'vas Bloodthorn says: Almost there! Keep it up!
Highlord Kruul says: Finish them, Vazuun. My rebirth is nearly complete.
Kor'vas Bloodthorn says: The portal is complete. I am with you, <name>!
Lord Vazuun says: Is this all your world could muster? Pathetic.
Lord Vazuun says: For Kruul! For the Burning Legion!
Lord Vazuun says: The endless flame comes for you! It cannot be stopped!
Lord Vazuun says: Your armies will all fall before my lord's wrath.
Lord Vazuun says: You test my patience. Die, cretin!
Lord Vazuun says: You walk into your own death.
