Examine 6 Engraved Vrykul Shields in Skold-Ashil.

  • Examine Engraved Shields (6)


Our goal lies within that vault, <class>. I don't have time to explain in detail - just know that it is vital to the Forsaken that we succeed.

The shieldmaidens have proven tenacious in their defense, but I believe there may be another way in. A chosen few of their order are allowed entrance, and I need you to find out how.

In the town I have seen intricately engraved shields which I believe are passed down from these champions. The scenes they depict may be the key to passing into the vault.


You will receive: 15g 40s (at level 100)


I hope that you bring me some good news, <class>.

For both of our sake.



Each shield shows a unique text when clicked.

First shield:

The engravings on the shield depict a goddess of the shieldmaidens, watching over them in battle.
Above her is inscribed the name "Eyir".

Second shield:

This shield appears to show various trials undergone by the warriors of Skold-Ashil.
A depiction of the nearby temple adorns the center.

Third shield:

An image of a shieldmaiden is carved on this shield, kneeling before an elaborate spear.
The priestesses of the temple stand nearby, silently observing the rite.

Fourth shield:

The scene on this shield shows one of the shieldmaidens hovering above a statue of an ancient champion of Skold-Ashil.
The shieldmaiden is glowing with a radiant aura, and is held aloft by golden wings.

Fifth shield:

Upon this shield, an engraving of Eyir stands at the entrance to the titan vault.
She appears to be welcoming a winged champion of the shieldmaidens inside.

Sixth shield:

This shield bears an image of a winged shieldmaiden lifting the body of a fallen vrykul from a battlefield.
The shieldmaiden's image appears eerily similar to that of a Val'kyr.
