Notes Edit

Some of the information received from the relics:

  • A tormented voice whispers: He cannot be defeated.
The relic burns to nothing. The memories it held are now your own. This city was destroyed by a being not of this world.
  • A tormented voice whispers: Your existence is acknowledged.
The relic turns to dust. Your head throbs with newfound wisdom. Something evil lurks in the heart of the mountain.
  • A tormented voice whispers: Help us, outsider.
The relic cumbles to dust. A vision of eight Dark Iron dwarves performing some sort of ritual fills your head.
  • A tormented voice whispers: Leave this place.
The relic emits a white hot arc of flame. A memory has been gained: A lone Dark Iron dwarf is surrounded by seven corpses, kneeling before a monolith of flame.
  • A tormented voice whispers: Defiler... you will be punished for this incursion.
A symbol of flame radiates from the relic before it crumbles to the earth.
  • A tormented voice whispers: Do not taint these ruins, mortal.
You are engulfed by a blinding flash of light. A creature composed entirely of flame is the only thing you can remember seeing.

These clues refer to The Seven and the Sorcerer-thane Thaurissan, summoning Ragnaros during the War of the Three Hammers.
