Deep Ocean, Vast Sea is about searching two shipwrecks in the water and finding two boxes.


Recover the  [Silver Dawning's Lockbox] and the  [Mist Veil's Lockbox] for Gorbold Steelhand in Auberdine. Both items should be found aboard the wreckage of the ships to the north of the village.


Off the coast of Darkshore to our north are two wrecked ships - the Silver Dawning and the Mist Veil. Some time ago, both ships ran afoul of the blasted murloc as they sailed across the vast sea into Auberdine. They now lie at the bottom of the ocean, as trophies for those fiends.

Both captains didn't make it out that night, and their logs and other effects are still below in their lockboxes. I'd like for you to recover them for us; it would mean a lot to the crew members still around these parts.

You will also receive:


The captains of those ships were good night elves, and they deserve a better fate than they were given. Perhaps tending to their personal effects will be the best way to put their spirits to rest.


You've done us here in Auberdine a great service, lad. We'll make sure that their effects are properly taken care of.

As for you, please have this. It is the least I can do for someone with the bravery to set things right.


Be careful of a bug that sometimes allows mobs to attack you through the walls of the ship.
