Kill Desdel Stareye.


All of your instincts were correct. Gul'dan raised Lord Ravencrest, and his ghostly army, from beyond the grave. Now, they serve the Legion, protecting secrets within the tower.

Although Ravencrest commands from above, Lieutenant Desdel Stareye operates the prisons.

He tormented me these past few moons, but I did not yield.

<Maiev runs a finger along her curved blade.>

His life must be ended.

("Lieutenant Desdel Stareye: Second-in-command to Lord Ravencrest.")

Lord Stareye came from a noble house, but in war, he never came close to Ravencrest or my brother.

Now that he is defeated, we can turn our attention to his commander.

However, that will be no easy task. We must gather our strength before facing Lord Ravencrest himself.



From Maiev's prison cell, go straight until you reach the first fork in the corridor. Go left, up the stairs, and left again to find Stareye's room.

Quest accept
Maiev Shadowsong says: Little brother. You came for me. Even after I tried to k--
Commander Jarod Shadowsong says: Never mind that. I heard what happened in the Vault of the Wardens. Luckily my hair can't get any grayer.
Commander Jarod Shadowsong says: Why did you have to chase after Gul'dan alone? Thank Elune you're still alive.
Maiev Shadowsong says: Well said, brother: we have bigger concerns. Let's go. Stareye has much to answer for.
Maiev and Jarod take off.
Room Entered
Maiev Shadowsong says: This bastard leads the guards in this prison. He must pay for his crimes!
Lieutenant Desdel Stareye
Lieutenant Desdel Stareye says: Lord Ravencrest's army will purge this land of all you invaders.
Commander Jarod Shadowsong says: You always did think too highly of yourself. Another foolish death, then, if you insist.
Lieutenant Desdel Stareye says: How dare you attack a kaldorei noble? You will beg for mercy, which I will not give.
Maiev Shadowsong says: Begging's never been one of my talents, Stareye. You should know that by now.
Lieutenant Desdel Stareye says: Lord Ravencrest himself gave me this post. I won't surrender it to you demons!
Commander Jarod Shadowsong says: Ravencrest? Impossible! And we're not demons. Don't you recognize me?
Maiev Shadowsong says: It's useless, brother. Like the other undead, he cannot see us for who we are.
The adventurer kills Desdel with assistance from Maiev and Jarod.
Lieutenant Desdel Stareye says: Lord Ravencrest cannot be stopped. We will prevail!
Commander Jarod Shadowsong says: What a tragic waste. Even in death, he only wanted to protect our people.
Maiev Shadowsong says: Over here! This sewer will take us back outside. We should go before our enemies regroup.
Maiev and Jarod enter the portal.
Portal interaction
<On the other side of the portal, you can faintly see Ravencrest Cemetery.>
Gossip Leave the Darkpens.
Quest completion
Commander Jarod Shadowsong says: I refuse to believe it. Lord Ravencrest cannot be working with Gul'dan.
Maiev Shadowsong says: Champion, return to your other duties for now. Soon we will face Lord Ravencrest himself.
