Previous N [60] The Good News and The Bad News

The subject of this article or section was part of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj, a world event that heralded the opening of Ahn'Qiraj. This quest was removed as of patch 4.0.3a.

This quest concludes the  [Blue Scepter Shard] fork of  [The Scepter of the Shifting Sands] quest chain to open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj. Players must also complete the  [Green Scepter Shard] and  [Red Scepter Shard] forks before Anachronos will offer the conclusion of the quest chain, N [60] The Might of Kalimdor.


Use the Arcanite Buoy at the Swirling Maelstrom at the Bay of Storms in Azshara.


Did I mention the bad news yet? Its name is Maws: 100 feet of death and destruction. I guess I may have forgotten that little tidbit.

According to my superior psycho-psionic clairvoyance, you'll find that the best spot to cast this buoy is off the coast of Azshara, in the Bay of Storms.

Look for a swirling maelstrom, most likely cluttered with wreckage.

By the by, I hope you have friends.

Now if you somehow miraculously succeed, take the scepter shard to Anachronos.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards

You will also receive:


Time is running out, champion.


Well done, <name>. I will be able to reform the Scepter of the Shifting Sands soon.


The  [Arcanite Buoy] is a one-time use item. If you use it at the wrong time, abandon the quest and pick it back up from Narain Soothfancy to receive another one.


This is part of the  [Blue Scepter Shard] fork of  [The Scepter of the Shifting Sands] quest chain:
