Alchemist Finklestein at Heb'Valok wants you to assist him in the creation of a truth serum.

When you are ready to begin, you are to speak to him and follow his instructions.

  • Truth Serum Created


Ahh, you must be the promised patrol. Your timing couldn't be better. I have urgent need of an extra pair of hands.

We have a Drakkari prisoner who's been sent here to undergo questioning. Before the interrogation begins, I require assistance in the creation of a truth serum.

Creating a truth serum is tricky business, demanding keen instincts, perfect timing, and improvisation at every step.

Let me know when you're ready, <race>. And remember, timing is everything!


You will receive: 1Gold 58Silver


You've done it!

The intelligence gathered from that troll will undoubtedly be of great value. I'll be certain to make mention of your efforts in my report to the commander.

Thank you, <name>.

The following table lists the four bookcases in each of the two rooms and what shelf each item is on in its respective bookcase. The bookcases are ordered going counterclockwise from the southeast, an illustration of which can be found in the image to the right.

For example, a Blight Crystal can be found in the left room in the western bookcase on the second shelf from the bottom.

Don't worry about the time limit on the items, as long as they were looted, they count.

The daily quest version does care about the time, so move quickly. The last component for the daily quest is a "single" item, one that is only present one time. All other components required for the daily quests are present multiple times.

There are also two AddOns that assist you with this quest:

Getting a plugin is highly recommended if you want to complete Quest:Congratulations! on time. Nothing is more painful than losing ten minutes out of twenty to Alchemist Finklestein and failing the quest – thus turning a reward of about 35 G into one of about 10 G.
