The subject of this article or section is part of the Shattered Sun Offensive storyline and is added at the commencement of phase 2B.

Maintaining the Sunwell Portal is part of the Shattered Sun Offensive storyline. A flying mount is required to complete this quest. Once players have activated the Sunwell portal, this quest replaced Neutral 15 [70] Intercepting the Mana Cells.


Obtain 10 Smuggled Mana Cells and return them to Exarch Nasuun on the Terrace of Light in Shattrath City.


We must maintain the energy to our portal or it will collapse. The mana cells that the ethereal at Bash'ir Landing have hidden will continue to serve our purposes. The landing sits atop the northwestern corner of the Blade's Edge Mountains, far to the north.

Remember, acquire a phase device from one of the ethereal and then use it to locate the smuggled goods.

Just be cautious of the Combat 15 phase wyrms that they use to guard the mana cells.


You will receive: [Shattered Sun Supplies] and 4Gold 40Silver.


As the quest text hints at, the mana cells are hidden. All ethereals in the area may drop the [Bash'ir Phasing Device] which will put the caster, party members and pets in a phased state that allows them to see the mana cells (which look like pale glowing purple boxes) and hide from the ethereals and other wildlife in the area, but allows nearby phase wyrms to attack the players and vice versa. Players can mount up and fly around or do any of the rest of their abilities while phased, but once players leave Bash'ir Landing, the buff will fade.


<name>, how fare your efforts to obtain mana cells for us this day?


These mana cells will continue to power the portal.

Return tomorrow and I will send you out to obtain more.
