Obtain the Twinblades of the Deceiver from Varedis Felsoul in Suramar.


You must lead this hunt, <name> - a small force will join you to ensure Varedis meets his end.

You must try to make it into Varedis' hold undetected; the less time you spend in Legion territory the better.

Meet at Krasus' Landing when you are prepared to leave.

This hunt is yours to lead, <name> - a select few Illidari will join you to make sure Varedis meets his end.

The rest of us must stay behind; a small team will have the best chance of making it to his hold undetected.

We will meet you at Krasus' Landing to see you off when you are ready.
