Winged Arcanum

Paths of the First Ones

Greater Wards and Barriers, Volume IV

Binding of the Banished One

Collect the required volumes from the Hall of Tomes and return them to Kel'Thuzad in the Vault of Souls.


Very well, you can have your list. The volumes you seek can be found in the Hall of Tomes.

Now, run back to your master like a good little pet.


You will receive:

  • 12g 87s
  • 4,750 XP


You have returned? Do you have my tomes?


Ah yes, these will do.

It will take some time to study these tomes. In the meantime, I have more need of you.


The entrance to the Hall of Tomes is at [67.9, 24.4]. This quest is effectively a stealth mission, as you have to navigate around the shelves to collect the four tomes while avoiding detection from the roaming Decrepit Oculus, who can see through the Illusory Guise. Balmedar has something to say about each book.

 [Winged Arcanum]:

Balmedar says: "Winged Arcanum". An obvious choice for research on kyrian mysticism.
Balmedar says: What could he expect to find in such a basic volume?

 [Paths of the First Ones]:

Balmedar says: "Paths of the First Ones"? An odd choice, filled with speculation and half-truths.
Balmedar says: Does his ritual somehow involve the pathways connecting the realms of Death?

 [Greater Wards and Barriers, Volume IV]:

Balmedar says: "Greater Wards and Barriers, Volume IV: Counter-Spells". A truly ponderous read.
Balmedar says: What manner of barrier is the baron seeking to erect... or bypass? Curious.

 [Binding of the Banished One]:

Balmedar says: "Binding of the Banished One"? Why, this is little more than a history book.
Balmedar says: What could Kel'Thuzad possibly want with this?

All four collected:

Balmedar says: Despite our efforts, we are no closer to ascertaining the baron's plans.
Balmedar says: Continue with your ruse. Let us see what else we can uncover.

Completing this quest unlocks the optional group side quest N [60G3] Casting Doubt from the nearby Sorcerer's Note.
