The subject of this article or section was part of the Scourge Invasion, a two-time world event that heralded the opening of Naxxramas in patch 1.11.0, and the opening of Northrend in patch 3.0.2.

Under the Shadow is one of the Scourge Invasion quests. This quest must be completed in order to purchase items in exchange for Necrotic Runes from any of the Argent Quartermasters at Light's Hope Chapel or the Argent Dawn camps found in capital cities.

Objectives

Check your map to find an area under Scourge attack. Go there and damage a necropolis by defeating the Scourge around them. Return 10 of their Necrotic Runes to Commander Thomas Helleran at Light's Hope Chapel in the Eastern Plaguelands.

Description

The floating necropolises of the Scourge plague the lands of Horde and Alliance alike. Tanaris, the Blasted Lands, Winterspring and the Burning Steppes are blanketed in the shadows of the flying fortresses.

Only through our combined efforts will they be turned away.

The necropolises are supported by magical circles at various points in the invaded areas. We have determined that destroying the mindless hordes that surround these circles will destroy their defenses.

Rewards

You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv potion 26.png 2x [Blessed Wizard Oil] Inv stone sharpeningstone 02.png 2x [Consecrated Sharpening Stone]

Progress

It will take time to prevail against this threat. How have you fared, <name>?

Completion

You've done well, <name>. Through these incremental defeats, we shall prevail against this renewed Scourge threat.

Rest and recover, but then you must head out to the front again, lest we lose the ground we have gained today.

To aid you in your further battles, we will make some of our special items available to you in trade for more necrotic runes.

Patch changes

  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): The last line in the description now reads, "Each necropolis is supported by nearby magical circles, and among each circle swarms a host of undead creartures. We have determined that destroying these mindless hordes will destroy the circle's defenses."
Old: "The necropolises are supported by magical circles at various points in the invaded areas. We have determined that destroying the mindless hordes that surround these circles will destroy their defenses."
