Listen to a speech given by a Doomsayer in Old Town and obtain copies of the pamphlets "Elemental Fire for the Soul", "What Does 'The End of All Things' Mean for Me?", and "Finding Security and Comfort in a Doomed World".


Harbingers of doom are nothing new on the streets of Stormwind, but I'm worried about the most recent ones. They've set up shop all over Old Town and they seem well coordinated.

I've thought about rounding them up or otherwise disrupting their activities, but that will just drive them underground. We need to find out as much as we can about them. Would you go to Old Town, hear what these doomsayers are spreading, and see if you can collect any of their leaflets?


You will receive: 13g 23s (at 80)


What did you encounter in Old Town?


<Anton reads over the scrolls you collected.>

Whoever put these leaflets together knows how to get attention and from the state of things in Old Town, there's no lack of interest. We must act before they can build a significant following in the city. I fear they'll use their influence to spread panic throughout the city, paralyzing us.

We've got to get inside the organization and learn as much as possible.



A Cultist Doomsayer in Stormwind

Head to Old Town and start looking around. Doomsayers are all over, but the ones marked on the map have scrolls near them.

The end of the world nears, <class>. There is no need to despair. Hear what I say and what my brethren have to offer.
Gossip I will hear what you have to say.
Doomsayer says: Hear me, citizens of Stormwind. We have long been in the dark. I beg you to open your eyes as I have!
Doomsayer says: The end of our world nears, my brothers and sisters. Azeroth will be no more!
Doomsayer says: Flames will consume the world. Storms will wash away all hope. The elements will reign at last.
Citizen says: Why should we believe you?
Doomsayer says: Do not despair! Turn away from the false Light, and instead embrace the hope and truth I offer you!
Doomsayer says: Cast off your lives of war and drudgery, be reborn in elements and claim your rightful place in this new world!
Doomsayer says: Calm down, friends. There will be plenty of time to answer all your questions.
Citizen says: I want to be reborn. Tell me what I must do!
Citizen says: Yes, tell us!
Doomsayer says: If you are interested in our message, I will be holding a gathering. Speak with me if you wish to know more, but beware, for Stormwind is full of people who would silence the truth.
Citizen says: I don't want to die!!
