Go to Caer Darrow in Western Plaguelands and find out about the Shadow Council ritual.

  • (Optional) Take the Portal to Dalaran Crater
  • Go to Caer Darrow
  • Find information on the Shadow Council (3)
  • Take the book of Medivh from Jergosh
  • Speak with Calydus
  •  [Caer Darrow Scroll] (provided)


Very powerful, but difficult to acquire. Scepter is in the hands of Gul'dan. We must find out his plans, get close.

Calydus know Gul'dan planning major operation. He has sent out a call to arms to all Shadow Council to help with big ritual. One such group at Caer Darrow, talking to the necromancers there.

You should go, find out about plan.


You will receive:

  • 15g 40s
  • 15,050 XP


This gets complicated, but Calydus have idea!


Gul'dan says any of power may join. What if friend joined? Then when close take the Scepter and run!

Yes! Could work but must work hard to earn trust. Gul'dan still needs Eye. Friend should help with that, earn more respect.


Take the portal to Dalaran Crater and fly to Caer Darrow. Look for the 3 clues (Logbook of Ur'dan, Council Notice, Forgotten Letter), after which Jergosh the Invoker and Braelyn Firehand will appear.

Jergosh the Invoker yells: Finally! The Book of Medivh is ours! Would have saved ourselves time if you'd just let me kill those death-lovers!
Braelyn Firehand yells: Not worth the effort, dear! Let them rot in their crypt. The fires of the Legion will come for them soon enough.
Jergosh the Invoker yells: Hmmmph! Wait... something is wrong!

Kill them easily, then pick up the Book of Medivh and  [Letter from Gul'dan] from Jergosh's corpse. Calydus then appears in the area.

Calydus yells: Calydus is here, friend! Council flees! Haha!

Talk to Calydus to continue:

Calydus is here to help!
Gossip <Tell Calydus about the ritual and the Scepter.>
Calydus says: Gul'dan will use Scepter, Eye, and Book to make portals bigger and stronger. Many, many demons pour through! Friend not want that, I think.
Calydus says: What if friend trick Gul'dan into giving up scepter? Then ruin ritual and run away! Haha! This can work, friend!
