Await the opening of the Nighthold, then meet Archmage Kalec in Shal'Aran.


Thanks to your tireless efforts the Heart of Zin-Azshari is ready to withstand the full power of the Legion. The final destination in our journey has stood defiantly in front of us from the moment we began - the Nighthold, now home to none other than Gul'dan himself.

We just need a way inside.

I am working fervently with the rest of the Council of Six to secure an entrance. Once we have, we should reunite with the Moon Guard in Shal'Aran - we still have need of their skills.


We've found a back entrance into the Nighthold that should provide some relief from the armies at the main gate.

"Some" being the key.
