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


Go to the Master's Terrace in Karazhan and touch the Blackened Urn to summon Nightbane. Retrieve the  [Faint Arcane Essence] from Nightbane's corpse and bring it to Archmage Alturus.


You have fulfilled your end of the deal. I will now bind your essence to that of the dead blue dragon.

There is an urn in the Master's Terrace, should you touch that urn, you'll now release its energy and bring life back to the charred remains of Arcanagos. Defeat the creature and retrieve its essence immediately! You will need to take it to Alturus.

Should you fail, the stars predict you will have let a great terror loose upon the skies.

A terror known as Nightbane!


You will be allowed to choose one of the following:
Inv jewelcrafting nightseye 03.png [Sovereign Amethyst] Inv jewelcrafting nightseye 03.png [Tireless Soothing Amethyst]
Inv jewelcrafting nightseye 03.png [Timeless Amethyst]

You will also receive:


What news do you bring, <name>?


This is astounding! Not only have you brought back Medivh's Journal, but you've also retrieved a fragment of his very essence.

As faint as this lingering essence is, it will reveal to us vital information about Medivh. We will not forget this, <class>.


If you do not manage to kill Nightbane, but run away to the door, you may be able to leave combat, but the Blackened Urn will no longer be there. If you are saved to Karazhan, you will have to wait until the instance lock expires before you can try again.
