Test of Strength is a Horde quest in Thousand Needles in which player characters test their strength against the rock elemental Rok'Alim the Pounder. It is the third 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  [Fragments of Rok'Alim] to Dorn Plainstalker in Thousand Needles.

You will need:


During the time of the Old Gods, elementals inhabited much of this world. They worshipped the Old Gods, and the Gods, through their power, kept the elementals bound to this world. When the Old Gods were banished, the elementals faded from our world and now only return at the bidding of powerful mages.

There are exceptions though. Some elementals were powerful enough to remain here on their own. One such elemental is Rok'Alim.

To test your strength, find Rok'Alim in Thousand Needles and slay him.


Rok'Alim is also called the Pounder by the centaur tribes in Thousand Needles because of the thundering his fists make as he pummels the creatures brave, or stupid, enough to stand in his path.


The Test of Strength is done. You have shown strength and bravery, and you are now prepared for the final test before these rites are completed.


Rok'Alim the Pounder roams the north-western part of Thousand Needles, south of the main road. He is a level 30 rock elemental. Usually it is fairly easy to find him alone, making the fight fairly simple and much easier to solo. However, he is strong so a group would make this quest considerably easier. As of patch 2.3, he is no longer elite.

Once you have defeated Rok'Alim the Pounder and looted  [Fragments of Rok'Alim], return to Dorn Plainstalker at The Weathered Nook
