Protect one of the druids attempting to take the Forlorn Spire[68, 69]
  • Druid Assault Group Protected


Captain Saynna Stormrunner is launching an attack against the Forlorn Spire. If you head to the northeast, you'll find her at the bottom of the ramp leading up towards that rise.

Go there and escort one of her druids to the tower with any forces that she can spare. You'll have quite a fight ahead of you - make sure the druid lives to see the end of it or they'll not be able to seize the tower.


Well done, <class>. This should prove a good staging ground for pushing further into enemy territory.

I sense Druids of the Flame nearby. Perhaps we shall have some sport of them as well.


You will receive:


  • Once accepted, ride over to the Forlorn Spire ramp, where you will see a gathering of Shadow Wardens. Deldren Ravenelm, Turak Runetotem, and Keeper Taldros are involved in the fighting and one of them will use their magic to destroy the Spire.
  • The battle will begin, and players will move up the ramp. Several lesser elementals will swarm the area, and every now and then a Flamewatch Sentinel will spawn. Once at the top, players will square off against a Pyrelord.
  • Burn them down quickly, then move to the Forlorn Spire, where the druids will employ their magic to make it crumble. Now the daily quests are unlocked for the Shadow Wardens.
  • Sometimes the quest will complete before you have a real chance to get underway. This is because a group ahead of you has taken down all the mobs.
