Objective of

WoW Icon update.png The subject of this section was removed from World of Warcraft in patch 4.0.3a but is present in Classic.


  • To reach him, head into The Cauldron from the east side and enter the cave there (the one farthest east). Cross the metal bridge, then head into the small archway on the left side of the room. Strangely, his shadow bolt ability is vulnerable to spell push back, most npcs are immune to this effect.
