Bring Balnir Snapdragons to Anastasia Hartwell in the Mage Quarter of the Undercity.


The Plaguelands to the east are an aberration. Devised by the Lich King, they spread their magic into the soil, corrupting and killing all that live. Although there is a certain charm to the destructive forces of the plague, we, the mages of the Forsaken, believe it is unruly and must be curtailed. But first, we must measure how far it has spread into Tirisfal. Go to the Balnir Farmstead in eastern Tirisfal. In the garden are flowers--snapdragons. Gather these and return.

Do you have the snapdragons?  That breed of flower is highly receptive to magic energies, and studying the snapdragons so close to the Plaguelands can tell us if the plague has entered Tirisfal Glades.


Ah, a fine specimen this is.  I will send it to be studied by our apothecaries to determine the extent of the Plagueland's taint. Well done, <name>.  For your services, I present to you this choice: an orb or staff.  Whichever you choose, you will find it quite useful.


Upon completion of this quest you will gain:

  • 850 XP (or 5Silver 10Copper at level 70)
