Previous A Warlock [10] Surena Caledon


Using the  [Bloodstone Choker], summon and subdue a voidwalker, then return the  [Bloodstone Choker] to Gakin the Darkbinder in Stormwind.


By retrieving my choker and besting Surena, you've proven that you're at least as capable as she was.

With that said, I can tell you're direly in need of training. You can manage the flows of magic, yes, but being a warlock is much more than that.

I will show you how to command a voidwalker, but before I can, you must call one forth at a summoning circle and subdue it using whatever weapons—physical and magical—you have at your disposal. Use the magic of this choker at the summoning circle below.


Upon completion of this quest you will gain:


I cannot show you how to control a voidwalker until you have overtaken one.


You did better than I expected, <name>, but as well as I'd hoped. Now, you can learn to command your subjugated voidwalker, an ally you will find valuable in the trials that are sure to stand before you.

I have nothing more to teach you at the present, but I am far from done with you, <name>.
