The subject of this article or section was part of Death Rising, a world event that heralded the opening of the Shadowlands.


Sabotage 3 of the Cult of the Damned's experiments in Mord'rethar.


<The words of the shadowy herald are dark and foreboding. Whatever "the Banished One" intends to accomplish, it must not come to pass.

Something foul bubbles within the cauldrons nearby. Judging by the care with which the cultists are tending to them, their contents must be crucial to their plans.

Several barrels containing what appears to be a new type of plague have been left unattended. Perhaps they can serve as instruments for sabotage.>


You will receive:


What have you discovered?


Thank the Light, you have returned unharmed!

Were you able to learn anything about what the cult is doing?


Interact with a Plague Barrel to pick it up and gain a bonus ability:

Ability vehicle plaguebarrel.png  Hurl Plague Barrel 30 yd range — Hurl the barrel, inflicting 100 Nature damage to enemies within 8 yards. WARNING: Do not throw directly into a carefully tended Bubbling Cauldron. Instant

Don't let reverse psychology get in the way of fun. Use the ability and aim the ground-targeted AoE in the cauldron to affect it. The engineers nearby are less than pleased:

  • Defiled Engineer yells: Be careful, you oaf!
  • Defiled Engineer yells: Hey! Be careful with that! It's highly unstable.
  • Defiled Engineer yells: What have you done?
  • Defiled Engineer yells: You fool! Our precious work!
  • Defiled Engineer yells: Stop that! You'll ruin everything!

In case of quest's abandonment, it can be accepted from a Plague Barrel.


PTR version

Removed from game The subject of this section did not make it out of the PTR stages.
<The presence of this strange, shadowy figure causes great uncertainty.
Before exiting the chamber, you ponder the ramifications of what you've just witnessed.
You remember seeing the bubbling cauldrons being tended to with delicate handling.
Now may be an opportune time to send a message by slowing the spread of blight.
The unattended canisters may do well to aid in sabotaging the experiments within the chamber.>
That was quite a message.
Your discovery suggests the surge in activity may be related to this... this being.
