Reverse Piracy is part of the legendary quest chain which ends in the player gaining possession of a legendary ring. This particular quest is picked up along with the quests: Heart of the Fury, Flamebender's Tome and Might of the Elemental Lords, which can be completed simultaneously. This part of the quest chain sees the player venture into Blackrock Foundry to gather items of power to use in upgrading the ring.



<name>, during the attack on Karabor Iron Horde dreadnaughts looted or sank most of the draenei eastern fleet. A priceless artifact was captured: A genuine Draenic Thaumaturgical Orb.

I must have it! Those orcs don't know what they've got!

My sources indicate that the orb was aboard a ship that's being retrofitted down in the Dread Grotto beneath the Blackrock Foundry. Search the ship and the area nearby for the Sha'tari Vault that contained the orb. We've got to get it back!


The orb! Tell me you've found the orb...?

Completion Edit

You found it! I have heard stories of these orbs of power. How I craved to study them during my long exile in Outland. And now, at last, I have one. Show me...

<Reverently, Khadgar opens your pack and looks inside. His face remains motionless for a long time. Finally, he speaks:>

...I don't know what I expected.


Upon completion of this quest, players receive:

  • 15Gold 40Silver


  • The [Draenic Thaumaturgical Orb] can be found in a box which appears after the Iron Maidens have been defeated. This box can be looted by players who have the quest, even if they were not present during the Maidens' defeat. This makes the quest extremely easy, as an individual can simply join the group of someone who has already cleared the raid that week, enter the instance and retrieve the orb.
