Preparing to Strike is the breadcrumb to Wrathion's Patch 5.4 portion of his quest on the Timeless Isle, offered to players who picked it up in Patch 5.3. Players who acquire their N [90] Cloak of Virtue after Patch 5.4 was released are instead offered N [90] Meet Me Back at the Inn.


Return to Wrathion when the assault on Orgrimmar is ready to begin. [To be continued in patch 5.4...]


Events are in motion, <name>. We have one final task to complete before we are ready to move into the final act of my plan.

My agents tell me that King Wrynn has reassembled a naval fleet after his losses at Theramore, and Vol'jin is marching north across Durotar in open rebellion against the warchief.

Speak with me again as soon as they are ready to converge on the gates. We will bring this war to a glorious conclusion!


Are you ready for your next adventure, <class>?

Our campaign is nearing its conclusion...


To be concluded in Patch 5.4!

On accept:

Wrathion says: My work is not quite finished. This cloak will grant you the power of the celestials.
Wrathion says: Very soon we will be able to augment your cloak with my own formidable draconic powers.
Wrathion says: Continue to aid your allies in the war effort. I will contact you shortly!

Return to him, and find him sitting alone:

<Wrathion sits alone, twirling a game piece in his fingers. He is staring intently at the game board but you get the impression that his mind is elsewhere.>

Speak with him to continue.
