Test of Endurance is a Horde quest in Thousand Needles in which players test their endurance. It is the second quest in the Test of Faith quest chain, which is a chain of quest involving "testing" some part of the player character's being. The first quest is H [26] Test of Faith, which begins in The Weathered Nook in Thousand Needles, from Dorn Plainstalker.


Bring Grenka's Claw to Dorn Plainstalker in Thousand Needles.

You will need:


I'm pleased to see your courage remains steadfast in light of what you've already done. Since your faith is intact, the time has come to test your body.

First is a test of endurance. Go with friends to the Roguefeather Den west of Freewind Post. Make your way to the depths of their lair and destroy their foodstuffs. By then you should have provoked their fury, and if you are able to survive long enough, Grenka Bloodscreech herself will come for you—kill her and bring me her claw to complete your test.


You must be prepared spiritually, physically and mentally for the challenges that lie ahead of you.

Too often do we rush forward before we are ready. I consider it my duty to the youth, no matter which tribe they belong to, to prepare them for the dangers they may face after they leave the sanctity of their home.


Grenka was powerful, even by <race> standards. You should be proud of your accomplishment this day.

During your test of faith you displayed strength of spirit, and now you have shown endurance in battle by taking on the Roguefeather harpies, but the time has come for a new test.


After obtaining the quest, head to the southern wall of Thousand Needles and head west. You will eventually come to an area called Screeching Canyon with a ramp leading up to the harpy cave. Ramp coordinates are (27,49).

Fight your way to the back of the cave, where you will see some boxes. Right click one to break it. This will summon the named mob Grenka Bloodscreech. Defeat Grenka and loot her to receive  [Grenka's Claw], then return to Dorn Plainstalker to complete the quest.

Prior to Patch 2.3.0, there were additional waves of harpies to defeat before Grenka. Arguably, without needing to withstand these waves of attacks, the quest itself no longer fits its name, or its description.
