Kill 200 Mantid and 3 Kunchong or Dread Behemoths while flying with Xaril the Poisoned Mind.

  • Speak to Xaril the Poisoned Mind
  • Mantid slain x200
  • Kunchong or Dread Behemoths slain x3


The swarm begins, Wakener! The mantid amass at the Heart of Fear.

Already they fill the skies with their wings and rend the earth with their claws. They shall not stop the dark march until their bodies are laid open and bleeding upon the ground.

This we shall gladly do. We will attack them from above. While I fly, use my poisons to destroy their advance.

Do not mix the two serums until you are ready to attack. The reaction can be quite... violent.

Speak to me when you are ready to go.


You will receive: 19g 84s 50c 2 Lesser Charm of Good Fortune


Such wonderful destruction!


Well done, Wakener. You have a destroyer's aim.



During your fly around near the Heart of Fear, any random Empress council member will appear to get bombed. It's like you bomb Brutallus during the Sunwell Bombing when doing Isle of Quel'Danas. When you bomb them they'll yell back at you.

  • Amber-Shaper Un'sok yells: Yes, my little monsters! Go! Unleash yourselves upon our enemies!
  • Amber-Shaper Un'sok yells: The next stage of my experiment begins!
  • Amber-Shaper Un'sok says: Ahh, if I could just get my hands on you! You would make a very nice experiment!
  • Amber-Shaper Un'sok says: Auuugghhh! That hurt!
  • Amber-Shaper Un'sok says: Are you... afraid?

  • Blade Lord Ta'yak yells: The swarm is the blade that will cut through our enemies!
  • Blade Lord Ta'yak yells: A single cut should do.
  • Blade Lord Ta'yak yells: Our enemies will fall beneath our blades!
  • Blade Lord Ta'yak says: Do you wish to test the edge of my blade?
  • Blade Lord Ta'yak says: I smell the stench of Klaxxi disobedience! Stop running and face the Lord of Blades!
  • Blade Lord Ta'yak says: Ahahhhaahaa... was that supposed to hurt?

  • Imperial Vizier Zor'lok yells: Trust in the might of your Empress. She shall lead us to glory!
  • Imperial Vizier Zor'lok yells: Together, the swarm will rise higher than any empire this land has ever known!
  • Imperial Vizier Zor'lok yells: The will of the Empress is our own. Her greatness is our greatness. Her victory is a victory for the swarm!
  • Imperial Vizier Zor'lok says: You dare challenge the voice of the Empress? What the voice speaks, the swarm hears!
  • Imperial Vizier Zor'lok says: Blasphemy! You are not one of the swarm!
  • Imperial Vizier Zor'lok says: You are but one against the Empress's divine wrath! You, too, will fall!

  • Wind Lord Mel'jarak yells: The cold wind blows. The time of the swarm has begun!
  • Wind Lord Mel'jarak yells: Do they think a wall can stop us? Do they believe that stone can stand against those who ride upon the wind?
  • Wind Lord Mel'jarak yells: The swarm shall darken the skies with our numbers! We shall cast eternal night upon this land!
  • Wind Lord Mel'jarak says: A pitiful attempt.
  • Wind Lord Mel'jarak says: Infiltrator! You cannot hope to stop the swarm!
  • Wind Lord Mel'jarak says: Flying away, little rider? A true champion would face me in the heart of fear!
