The subject of this article or section was part of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj, a world event that heralded the opening of Ahn'Qiraj. This is no longer available as event is permanently over as of patch 3.2.0.

The Red Scepter Shard must be recovered from Mob  Nefarian (Blackwing Lair) to form  [The Scepter of the Shifting Sands].

As a quest objective


This is part of the  [Red Scepter Shard] fork of  [The Scepter of the Shifting Sands] quest chain:

Only one person will be able to loot the shard, even if multiple people have the quest. To clear things up, you have 5 hours to kill Nefarian and loot the shard, afterwards you can keep the shard in your bags/bank for as long as you like, as long as you got the shard, you can keep it for as long as you like and still hand it in successfully.
