Objectives Edit

Seek out Lirastrasza at the Circle of Life[14.8, 16.3]
in Twilight Highlands.

Description Edit

Hello, <race>. I wish we could meet in more favorable circumstances. The world hangs by a thread, and all that the Titans have wrought may be in jeopardy.

It saddens me greatly, but my judgment is final. Deathwing - the horrific creature that was once the Earth Warder and once my friend - must be destroyed.

I have prepared a site atop the Highlands, to the west of the Vermillion Redoubt, where I can bring about his end. Seek out the Circle of Life and speak with Lirastrasza within. I will join you there.


Hello again, <race>. I hear you were instrumental in our push toward Grim Batol - thank you!

Alexstrasza has sanctified this ground in the hopes of luring Deathwing here. She'll perform a ceremony to lure him out... and then destroy him within this sacred circle.

Let's hope her plan works.

Rewards Edit

You will receive:

  • 4Gold 70Silver
  • 34700 XP


Upon completion, Alexstrasza and Calen arrive at the Circle of Life...

Alexstrasza the Life-Binder says: Mortal, I want you to bear witness to this, but for your own safety stay back. Calen, you too.
Calen says: I will not leave your side.
Alexstrasza the Life-Binder says: Your life isn't yours to throw away, Calen. Should I fail, the fate of this world may rest on your shoulders.
Calen says: Yes, mother.

Calen and players bow before moving to safety. Alexstrasza, alone in the Circle, begins her ritual. The ground glows with green energy as her magic weaves its way through the blades of grass and flowers. As if on cue, Deathwing appears, flying into the area to confront his nemesis...

Deathwing says: Lifebinder! Do you presume that I am at your beck and call? I have a world to unmake.
Alexstrasza the Life-Binder says: It pains me, Neltharion - but I must end you as I have ended Malygos.
Deathwing says: "End" me? Lifebinder, you think life is yours to take away?
Deathwing says: Life is weak, mortal, fleeting... fragile.
Deathwing says: Death is final. Death is eternal. Death is... my realm.
Deathwing says: Look upon me and you see death incarnate, the unmaker of worlds.
Alexstrasza the Life-Binder says: I see the hollow metal shell of a once great ally, and the precious gift of the Titans wasted.
Deathwing says: Then witness my new gifts, bestowed by this world's true masters.

Deathwing exhales, releasing jets of flame in all directions! The Circle of Life is in flames! The destroyer turns and flies off, but Alexstrasza will not relent. She assumes her dragon form, rising to pursue him...
