In Arikara, Magatha Grimtotem sends you to summon and destroy the serpent of vengeance, Arikara. She claims the serpent is after Cairne Bloodhoof for his changes to the Tauren lore and customs, but it may be guessed that the serpent is really after her. This is the final quest in the Arikara quest chain, a series of quests involving the serpent Arikara in Thousand Needles. The first quest Alien Egg can be picked up at Freewind Post in Thousand Needles from Hagar Lightninghoof.

To Get This Quest Edit

Turn in Horde 15 [27] Sacred Fire to Magatha Grimtotem on Elder Rise in Thunderbluff, then speak with her again to receive this quest.

Quests in this AreaEdit

Other quests you may want to do along with this one, since they also take place in Darkcloud Pinnacle:

Objectives Edit

Slay Arikara. Bring her remains and the [Incendia Powder] to Motega Firemane in Whitereach Post as proof of your deed.

You will need:

Details Edit

The place to summon Arikara is one of the "needles" of Darkcloud Pinnacle. To get to Darkcloud Pinnacle, head south down the road from The Great Lift to where it splits. Turn left and walk a few paces, looking to your left. You should see a path leading up. Follow the path up to reach Darkcloud Pinnacle. The coordinates for the beginning of the path are (31,36).

Once you have reached the top, head to the needle with only one bridge attached to it that has a large fire pit in the center, surrounded by little tables with what might be mummies (this is where they bury their dead, after all). The fire will not be lit yet. Coordinates: (37,35)

When you are ready, use the [Incendia Powder] near the fire to summon Arikara. Defeat her and loot [Arikara Serpent Skin] from her.

Turn in the quest to Motega Firemane at Whitereach Post in Thousand Needles. Coordinates: (21,32)

Description Edit

Take this refined and purified Incendia powder to Thousand Needles and toss it on the sacred fire of life. It is located in the Darkcloud Pinnacle on an isolated needle where they bury their dead.

The enchantment that I have weaved into the Incendia powder will summon Arikara to you, <name>.

I fear she may be stalking Cairne Bloodhoof; too much Tauren lore has changed, and I fear this has angered Arikara. Move quickly before all is lost, <class>!

Reward Edit

You will be allowed to choose one of the following:
Inv hammer 16
Inv wand 07
Inv shield 21

Completion Edit

This does not make sense. Why would Arikara be after Cairne Bloodhoof? Magatha could not be wrong, she is our most powerful shaman.

<Motega shakes his head.>

Regardless, your great deed to the Horde shall not go unnoticed - please, choose one of these as a reward for your aid.
