Use [The Cipher of Damnation] at The Altar of Damnation to summon Cyrukh the Firelord.

Destory Cyrukh the Firelord and then speak to Earthmender Torlok, also found at The Altar of Damnation.


How many times has this spell been used in the history of our worlds? Undoubtedly, its power for destruction is unparalleled.

What you must do now is take the cipher, now made whole, and read it from The Altar of Damnation - where the memory of Gul'dan stands.

What you will see once the words are uttered are the memories left imprinted upon the land. Stand your ground and await the coming of Cyrukh.

You must be victorious, <Name>. This land can not withstand another shattering.


Is it done?



The mark of Kael'Thas...

<Earthmender Torlok takes [The Cipher of Damnation] from you.>

You have done as the elements asked. For that, we are grateful. While you will be rewarded, truble still looms. The spirits of fire are in turmoil. A claim as been made. [The Cipher of Damnation] is known by another.

It is cryptic, I know, but that is all the spirits would have me know. That and this symbol...

<Earthmender Torlok turns around and points into the sky.>

What could it mean?


24Gold 60Silver & [Amulet of the Torn-heart]

Plus a choice of: [Borak's Reminder], [Grom'tor's Charge], [Lohn'goron, Bow of the Torn-Heart], [Oronok's Ancient Scepter], [Torn-heart Axe of Battle] or [Staff of the Redeemer]


After completeing this quest, you should recieve a [Letter from Shattrath] in the mail.
