Patch 8.2.5 PTR - Finding Wrathion Quest Chain Preview
The Patch 8.2.5 PTR is finally up and with it comes a new story quest! Be warned that this preview contains major spoilers!


  • Whispers of N'Zoth - Magni wants you to report to Kalecgos in the Chamber of Heart immediately because Ebonhorn's head is being plagued by old god whispers. MOTHER wants to "sanitize" him to stop the corruption, but Magni stops her.
  • Spies to the Left and Right - Kalecgos is shocked N'Zoth could reach Ebonhorn in the safety of the chamber, and reluctantly sends you to find Wrathion at the Tavern in the Mists in Pandaria. Upon arriving you find two of Wrathions's Blacktalon Bodyguards, who say that Wrathion hasn't made contact with them in some time. They have you fight off 6 Lurking Observers (old god floating eyes) outside before giving you Wrathion's "Torn Journal Page #7".


  • Black Winged Shadow - The two suggest that you look for Wrathion at the entrance to Blackwing Descent, but warn you to be careful as it has become obvious you are not the only one looking for him. There you find a Blacktalon watcher being attacked by two Sleepless Operatives and a Sleepless Interrogator. When you dispatch them, you receive Wrathion's "Torn Journal Page #16" from the watcher, who states that the Sleepless Interrogator showed him terrible and tempting things. He says that Wrathion wanted you to have the pages, and suggests you head to the Karazhan Catacombs as Wrathion said he intended to study the artifacts stored there.


  • To the Catacombs - When you reach the Catacombs, you find a Slain Blacktalon Lookout outside and collect Wrathion's "Torn Journal Page #25".


  • On the Trail of the Black Prince - You take the keys to the Catacombs from the body and head down into the crypts. You must investigate some of the journals and pages left by Wrathion before slaying X'korr the Compelling, a minion of N'Zoth who holds Wrathion's "Torn Journal Page #58". This one mentions Wrathion discovering a potion recipe in the catacombs that stops someone from hearing the whispers of the old gods and also states that he spoke with the spirit of Medivh and wants to follow a similar path in helping destroy the very thing that plagues him (the old gods) in order to save Azeroth. He has left a note for you with a sample of the potion for Ebonhorn.


  • Save Ebonhorn - Magni says you are needed back immediately and MOTHER opens a way gate to bring you back to the Chamber of Heart. You use the Potion of Mental Clarity on Ebonhorn to free him of his corruption, and he remarks that you must have found Wrathion if you have the potion. Kalecgos says Wrathion wasn't actually found, but the Black Prince seems to have found a way to resist the influence of the old gods. Ebonhorn tells you to give Wrathion's Journal pages to MOTHER, who commits the pages to memory and formulates fortification transcripts for the Chamber of Heart. She then destroys the pages to Magni's shock, but she explains that the journal said to destroy the pages. Magni says he will start looking for the Black Prince and the quest ends here.

    So the "big twist" is that MOTHER and the gang are in on it. Check.

    I don't usually read / look at spoilers. I read these because I'm actually very curious about Wrathion's involvement.
    I also read quests but that wasn't always the case, so I get where you're coming from.
    When I started playing, I was reading everything. But I got invited by some random in the starting area to do quests together. And he was just skipping through the text so I had to do the same to keep up. Haven't properly read quest text since then. I read some quests that looked important (like when we invaded Undercity and every expansion starting quests), but I skipped a lot.
    Then they announced the Warcraft movie and I decided to make sure I knew the lore before that. So I spent a few months reading all the novels. All the ingame books. All the comics. The only one I haven't read is Traveller (I have it and started on it but I stopped after about 20 pages). After that, I started reading all quests. At some point, I also used a story addon that forced you to read all text - I removed it because it was annoying on my main when I was doing repetitve stuff and only kept it on alts.

    So... I guess yes, there are people who do that. But I also get you, sometimes it takes a lot of willpower to read the generic lines for a quest that has you kill 10 more hydras or bring in 5 Angel Stars.

    I dont trust you, since in vanilla you actually really needed to read at least some of the quests to know where you had to go...

    So have we told Magni that he was made a pawn? That whole chamber can be compromised for all we know, has this been discussed with veryone present?

    Figures, see a new Wraithion model but we don't actually get to see the dopey dragon till 8.3. I wonder if they'll at least allow us to react to the fact he caused WoD and get some revenge for Admiral Taylor because of his further meddling.

    People can bitch a lot about the game, but it's players like you that are the biggest problem.

    That is actually very smart! That would put an end to the endless speculation tha Alleria will go mad and usher in the return of the Void, yada yada yada.

    If they can mass produce those potions and give them to the Void Elves... Then that will basically make them the ultimate race, because the ONLY drawback they have would be eliminated.

    Be an interesting way to bring in High Elves

    They're foreshadowing how Alleria and the Void Elves aren't headed down a certain path of doom. Also, Wrathion is like the new Medivh?

    was still faster to just read the quest and figure it out, unless you couldnt figure it out, even after reading the quest, then thottbot.

    Nah, just give a quick look at the objective, go to goblinworkshop, write the name of said objective and presto, now you know were to go.

    What I'm more interested in is what happens to our HoA. You'd think its power was completely depleted the same way Artifacts' power was, to release N'zoth. But then, I don't really expect them to just drop HoA for 8.2.5 / 8.3 because of the AP and essences, so... a loophole?
