Obtain Norgannon's Core, then use [Brann's Communicator] to contact Brann Bronzebeard.

If you lose Brann's Communicator, speak to Moteha Windborn at the Grom'arsh Crash-Site to replace it.


Prospector Soren's notes say that Norgannon's Core is in the keeping of a sentinel named Athan, one of Mimir's creations.

Soren says the vault where Athan resides is called "Loken's Bargain" these days.

Loken, eh? The Earthen have mentioned him.

The vault is said to be southwest of the ruined Explorers' League camp, with a round entrance on a mountainside overlooking the Valley of Ancient Winters.

Find this Athan and get the core from him, but I wouldn't be surprised if you were in for a fight.


You will receive: 7Gold 40Silver


Was Prospector Soren right? Did you finally find Norgannon's Core?


This is really it! The key is almost within our grasp. All we need now is a way to combine the shell and the core into a single key. Let's see what Prospector Soren had to say about this...

The entrance to the vault is at [56.3, 58.4]
. You can use your flying mount to get all the way down to the back of the vault where Athan is.
