Objectives Edit

Obtain 5 [Atal'ai Artifact]s and return them to Holaaru at the Harborage in the Swamp of Sorrows.

Description Edit

I am interested in studying Azeroth's past and I'm wondering if you'd be willing to help?

There is a nearby place of historical significance within the swamp that I would like for you to venture to. The Pool of Tears lies to the southeast. It is said that upon its shores and within its depths are buried artifacts of the Atal'ai troll civilization.

But beware, it is guarded by Somnus, an ancient green dragon, and his dragonkin, as well as carnivorous fish in the pool itself!

Rewards Edit

  • 1Gold 20Silver

Progress Edit

I look forward to you gathering enough of the Atal'ai artifacts so that I might begin to study them. I'm eager to discover what happened to their once-great civilization.

Completion Edit

I thank you, <class>. The study of these artifacts should keep me occupied for some time. How else are we Broken and draenei to fit in if we do not come to understand the history of your world?


There are plenty in the water outside the temple. No need to go inside.
