Next N Demon hunter [8-45] Orders for Your Captains


Feed a powerful soul into the Legion Gateway Activator and then use it to summon in your Shivarra forces.

  • Sacrifice made
  • Shivarra forces


Our Shivarra demonesses are waiting at the Black Temple. It's a gamble bringing them here... they used to be part of the Burning Legion after all. But, they are some of the most powerful in Lord Illidan's arsenal.

<Jace looks at you for a long moment.>

I have a feeling that the ultimate sacrifice is going to have to be made in order to summon them in.


You will receive:


Once you've activated the last of the gateways, we'll all be assembled.

Then, we can crush the brood queen's forces here in the volcano.


Grim. But demon hunters are no strangers to sacrifice. We have given everything to become what we are.

The Legion will fall. We await your orders, <name>.


Approach Sevis Brightflame
Sevis Brightflame says: <Name>, we have a huge problem here.
The brood queen must have done something to the gateway. Not even the souls of several mo'arg were enough to unlock it.
The soul of a demon hunter, however, would do the trick. You have a choice to make, <name>...
... One of us must die.
Gossip Sevis, I need to sacrifice you in order to power the final gateway.
Of course. I willingly sacrifice myself for the cause. What demon hunter wouldn't?
Gossip I'm certain, Sevis. I need to sacrifice you to power the gateway.]
Sevis Brightflame says: It's been... an honor.
Gossip Hold a moment, Sevis. I'm reconsidering.
Gossip I want you to sacrifice me in order to power the gateway.
Are you certain, <name>? You're far more important to the mission than me.
Gossip I've made up my mind. Sacrifice me, Sevis, and power the gateway.
Sevis Brightflame says: Your sacrifice will NOT be in vain!
Sevis kills you with a [Chaos Strike] and your soul is sent to a graveyard. On the way back to your corpse, Illidan will speak to you.
Illidan Stormrage says: Interesting. Like me, you have an immortal demon soul.
Illidan Stormrage says: You cannot truly die. Instead, your soul will make its way to the Twisting Nether. There, you will wait until you can find a suitable body to inhabit.
Illidan Stormrage says: Now get back into your corpse while there is still time and bring me the keystone!
Gossip Hold a moment, Sevis. I'm reconsidering.
Sevis's corpse
<Sevis paid the ultimate price so that you could use the Legion Gateway and summon in your Shivarra forces.>
<Don't allow his sacrifice to have been made in vain.>
Activate the gateway
Matron Mother Malevolence says: Ah, there you are. Lord Illidan has placed my Shivarra at your disposal.
Matron Mother Malevolence says: A small force has infiltrated the Black Temple, but the Sha'tari army is still being repelled.
Matron Mother Malevolence says: We are to obtain the  [Sargerite Keystone] with all due haste and return to aid in the defense.
Matron Mother Malevolence says: If you will excuse us. Come my dears. Up the volcano to the foothold.
They teleport away.
On path between Seat of Command and Inferno Peak
Kayn Sunfury yells: Mount up, <name>. The Legion is not playing around. They've unleashed their devastators.
Kayn Sunfury yells: We barely made it through. Most of us, anyway. We're under bombardment up here, too.
Brood Queen Tyranna yells: Are you blind? Kill them!
Reach the Illidari Foothold
Belath Dawnblade yells: <Name>, you made it through!

While making your way to the foothold, you will need to be mounted in order to avoid damage from the series of fel lava splashes that land on the pathway.

If you chose to sacrifice yourself instead of Sevis, you will see the latter at Illidari Foothold and has the following to say when you interact with him:

Thank you again for sparing my life. I trust you know that I'd willingly sacrifice everything to further Lord Illidan's plan. The Burning Legion must be destroyed at any cost.
I owe you everything, <name>.
Now, you must tell me how you survived. I killed you! It would seem the rumors about you are true... you're nearly as powerful as Illidan.

If you sacrificed Sevis, his ghost later appears at the Illidari Foothold with the following gossip:

Thank you again for giving me the honor of sacrificing my life for the cause. Now you know that I'd willingly give everything to further Lord Illidan's plan. The Burning Legion must be destroyed at any cost.
I owe you everything, <name>.
Now, you complete what we started, gain the Sargerite Keystone, and return triumphant to the Black Temple.
