Go through the Portal to the Maelstrom and speak to Thrall.


Thank the spirits you're here, <name>.

We're not sure how much longer we can maintain the rift in the Maelstrom.

Our most powerful members, led by Thrall, are barely preventing the tear.

Last I heard, our only hope was to go through the breach and attempt to stabilize it from the other side.

I will conjure a portal. Take it and report to Thrall as soon as you can.


You will receive: 82s


<Thrall's muscles strain as primal energy flows through him. His eyes shift your way, acknowledging your arrival.>

It is good to see you, <name>.
