The End of the Beginning starts the "The Endless Dark" chapter of the Shadowlands campaign. To reach this point, players must have completed all four of the level-up campaigns (including the Revendreth storyline) and have reached level 60.


Speak with the Voice of the Arbiter, Tal-Inara, in Oribos.

  • Speak to Draven
  • Fly with Draven to the Flightmaster
  • Speak with Tal-Inara in Oribos.


<Renathal struggles to speak, his wounds evident.>

I knew Denathrius had hoarded anima, but this... this is beyond imagining.

The Jailer will surely use this power to shatter his bonds. Should he break free of the Maw, all the realms of Death will fall.

We must continue to press the fight against Denathrius. Alas, we cannot hope to succeed alone.

Return to Oribos with Draven and speak to the Honored Voice, Tal-Inara. Tell her what you have seen this day and implore her to action.


You will receive:

  • 12g 87s
  • 970 XP


We have sensed something horrific has happened. Quickly, tell me everything.


On accept:

The Curator says: The Maw grows, surging with this flood of anima. I fear nothing will stop the Jailer from breaking free.
The Accuser says: Denathrius is surely gathering his forces inside Castle Nathria. Unchecked, his loyalists will soon overwhelm us.
Prince Renathal says: We must rally the Harvesters at Sinfall while this mortal returns to Oribos. They must be told what transpired here.
General Draven says: I shall escort the Maw Walker, my prince. Come, <name>.

Speak with Draven:

Ready to return to Oribos?
Gossip I am ready.
General Draven says: I can take you to the closest flight master to Oribos. From there you should head to Oribos. We must inform the other Covenants of what happened here.
Draven drops players off at the Pridefall Hamlet, yards from the flight master, Courier Gevoraal.
