For the Horde version, see Quest:Journey To The Sunwell (Horde).

This quest is part of the The Return of Quel'Delar quest chain Return of Quel'Delar quest chain.


Speak with Halduron Brightwing at the entrance to the Sunwell Plateau on the Isle of Quel'Danas.


Take Quel'Delar to the Sunwell as quickly as possible, <name>. Trust in Uther's words when he says that you will not always be able to control the blade while it is subject to the evil of the Lich King's influence. You must travel to the Isle of Quel'Danas, and there, seek entry to the Sunwell itself, where you can cleanse the sword.

The guardians of the Sunwell will not simply allow you to walk in, so you must find Halduron Brightwing, who will be inspecting the guards there.


You will receive: 74Silver


What brings you here?


Admit you to the Sunwell? That's impossible! The Sunwell is the most sacred and important site of our people. We have only recently reclaimed it with the help of the Shattered Sun Offensive. It is not a place for tourists or travelers.


The quickest way there is to take a teleport to Shattrath City, then run across the Terrace of Light to Exarch Nasuun and the Shattrath Portal to the Isle of Quel'Danas.

Once there, run down the path to the instance line, where Halduron Brightwing awaits.

The isle is in a new phase, as there are no demons or wretched attacking the area. Instead are a number of Wardens of the Sunwell speaking curtly.
