See Nightbane quest chain for a summary of this quest chain.


Archmage Alturus wants you to go to the mountains south of Karazhan in Deadwind Pass and retrieve a Charred Bone Fragment.


Kamsis was right! This information is extremely important.

If Medivh weaved his own essence into the magic he used to defeat the dragon, it is quite possible we could retrieve even a faint residue of that essence from the dragon's remains. What great insight may lie beneath the ashes of Deadwind Pass, awaiting discovery.

Go to the mountains south of Karazhan and bring me back a bone fragment of seemingly draconic origin.


You will receive:


Have you retrieved the bone fragment I require, <name>?


Excellent! Though small in size, this fragment is teeming with energy, I can feel it!


This is a normal quest so it cannot be completed in a raid group. The bone is located behind the summoning stone up against the mountain.
