Go to Tyr's Fall in Tirisfal Glades and recover the Silver Hand.

  • (Optional) Take the Portal to Dalaran Crater
  • Go to the marked location in Tirisfal Glades
  • Claim the Silver Hand
  • Return to Tyrosus
  •  [Tirisfal Camp Scroll] (provided)


Too many know of its location, the tomb must be closed forever. First, we must reclaim the hammer.

Tyrosus has lent us a force to aid in the recovery of the hammer, and some of my order will meet us there as well, but I fear even that may not be enough. I'm glad we'll have you with us.

Take the portal to Dalaran Crater, then fly to Tirisfal Glades and meet us. I've marked the location on your map.


You will receive:

  • 58g 20s
  • 22,200 XP


At last it is done.


I am heartened at your successful quest. We have been waiting for you to return.


Quest accept
Travard says: You can make your way there through the portal to Dalaran Crater. I will meet you there with additional forces.
Travard says: Efrina, find your brother and rally at the tomb.
Efrina runs away.

Stage 1: The Empty Camp

  • Travard's team is set up in the abandoned Twilight camp. Meet up with him.
  • Speak with Travard
Travard says: Ah, there you are. The area was secured at great cost. This cannot continue, we must retrieve the Silver Hand and destroy the entrance to the tomb.
Travard says: I will complete the ritual to release the Hammer and collapse the tomb, but we must be quick. I can sense evil emanating from the tomb.
Travard says: You and I shall lead a small team in first. Let me know when you are ready.

The camp has dead Twilight Shadowcasters, Twilight Bladetwisters, and Twilight Ritualists, killed by Righteous Crusaders, Argent Dawnbringers, and Argent Phalanxes, although the paladins also had costs.

Stage 2: Clearing the Way

  • Enter the tomb complex with Travard and get to Tyr's crypt.
  • Go to the tomb of Tyr with Travard.

It's at this point that you should change your role to healing. Speak with Travard to then continue.

Danger still lurks within the tomb. Curse all the meddlers! If you keep us alive, we will clear the way.
Gossip I'm ready to enter.
Travard says: Just a brief swim and we'll reach the tomb.
Travard says: Behold the Tomb of Tyr, built by the mighty... wait! These monsters dare befoul the tomb?!
Travard says: This cannot stand! Destroy these abominations!

Place [Beacon of Light] on Travard before engaging. Remember to also keep Duvall and Efrina alive.

Travard says: It pains me to see such destruction threaten the resting place of the Silver Hand.

The mobs - Flesh Spawn and a Masterless Faceless One - won't immediately engage if you don't follow them. This can be a great way to heal them back to full before entering another fight.

Stage 3: Keeper's Rest

  • Tyr's crypt is overrun with crazed aberrations. Clear them out to begin the ritual.
  • Tyr's Crypt cleared

Kill Masterless Facelesss Corupters and Flesh Spawn.

Travard says: Look there! The sacred hammer's wards remain strong! First we must purge this infestation. Let me know when you are ready.

Speak with Travard.

In order to enact the failsafe ritual we will need to clear the room. Say the word and I will begin.
Gossip I'm ready to enter.
Travard says: Watch yourselves! Let us cleanse this chamber!

After clearing the Tomb of Tyr:

Travard says: Well done everyone, let's... Wait, what is that?
G'norz the Crazed appears.

For this fight, you may find it necessary to use [Avenging Wrath].

Stage 4: The Broken Ritual

  • Travard wants to begin the ritual. Aid him.
  • Listen to Travard.
Travard walks to the raised platform in the center of the room.
Travard says: At last we can begin! After the ritual is complete and we have the hammer, the complex will collapse, sealing Tyr's resting place forever.
Travard says: Something is wrong. One of the other sparks isn't here!
Travard says: Wait, I can sense it below, probably taken by one of those monsters. We must have it! We will begin the search when you are ready, champion.
Travard dispels the void energies blocking the way.

Stage 5: Into the Dark

  • A critical part of the ritual was taken below. Retrieve the piece.
  • Find the final piece to the ritual.

Speak with Travard again.

We must venture further into the depths and find the spark, or this has all been for naught.
Gossip I'm ready to enter.
Travard says: Once we clear an area, reinforcements will secure it. Onward paladins!

Use [Consecration] to help deal with minor mobs and clear the area.

Travard yells: Argent Crusaders, secure this area! We will press on!

Don't worry about the barrier blocking the path.

Travard says: I'll take care of this!
Travard dispels the barrier.

You have one more pack of minor mobs to kill before moving on to the next stage.

Stage 6: The Maw of the Beast

  • The giant aberration has the piece. Slay it and retrieve the piece.
  • Kill the Mob Horrific Aberration.
  • Retrieve the ritual piece.
Travard says: This chasm oozes darkness... Light protect us! That thing has what we need. Prepare yourselves, friends.

Recast Beacon of Light if it has fallen off of Travard. Speak with Travard when ready.

This area is very unstable now thanks to the previous visitors. We need to kill that thing to get what we need, but I'm not sure what it will do to our surroundings.
It would be best to kill it quick and get out of here. Say the word, <name>.
Gossip I'm ready to enter.
Travard yells: Destroy the monster! For the Light!

During the fight you will lose Duvall and Efrina.

The aberration lets loose an explosion of void energy, killing Duvall and Efrina.
Travard yells: NO! They are... gone!

Avoid the rotating beam of void energy, which inflicts heavy damage. You should have no other trouble finishing off the Horrific Aberration.

Travard says: The last of my brothers and sisters. I am all that remains of the Tyr's Guard.
Travard says: I have the Spark. The battle this place has seen has warped reality too much. We must finish this now.

Stage 7: Escaping the Prison

  • Unstable void energies are gathering. follow[sic] Travard back up to the crypt before the area is consumed.
  • Withdraw back to Tyr's crypt.

Use [Divine Steed] if you have trouble keeping up with Travard.

Stage 8: Aid to the Fallen

  • Some of the paladins are wounded or covered in void magic. Free them by cleansing and healing them.
  • [Cleanse] the void-covered paladins. (2)
  • Heal the wounded paladins. (2)
Travard says: We have wounded! Aid them while I cover you!
Mordoth the Hunter yells: Life... to consume...

Stage 9: Something is Coming

  • Everyone is out of the passage, but something large and malevolent is coming up from below. Run with Travard to the crypt.
  • Get up to the crypt.
Travard says: A dark presence emerges from the void... something big! We need to move now!
Travard says: Excellent, and with no time to waste. Let's move!

Stage 10: Ritual Defense

  • Travard must complete the ritual to unlock the hammer from the wards. Defend the crypt until he is finished!
  • Defend the crypt until the ritual is completed. (0/100%)
Travard yells: Everything is in place for me to complete the ritual! All of you, defend the tunnel!

You will be aided by a full group this time, consisting of Helda the Breaker, Shieldbearer Anak, Kelissa Stilwell, and Lyanae. Keep them all up as long as it takes for the tracker bar to reach 100%. About midway through, the boss will make an entrance.

Mordoth the Hunter says: Why... flee? The Void... inevitable...
Travard yells: That thing is too powerful! Focus on staying alive and keep it at bay!

Final Stage: The Silver Hand

The Silver Hand is free. Claim it before Mordoth overwhelms the defenders!

  • Claim the Silver Hand.
Travard yells: It is done. Quickly, <name>, take up the hammer! In so doing, you will ensure Tyr's remains are protected for all time!

The mobs will have been disoriented by Blinding Light, so go retrieve The Silver Hand. (Interestingly, the flavor text for the spell used on the mobs states, "The mistress of the skies protects her children with a fury unmatched even among the Ancients.")

Travard yells: We have the hammer! Everyone, run! The tomb is collapsing!
The paladins retreat to above-ground.
Morgoth the Hunter yells: Your escape... means nothing. Will find you again...

Back at the camp:

Travard says: Apologies for the hasty retreat! The tomb's collapse was triggered by the hammer's removal.
Travard says: Though his halls are no more, Tyr is now protected by several tons of stone and water. The prison is buried as well.
Travard says: I can think of no one better to hold the Silver Hand, wield it well. Return to Tyrosus and tell him of our success. We will meet again.

Ride the Argent Hippogryph for a speedy return to Dalaran and from there, to the Sanctum of Light.
