Obtain the Heliotrope Oculus from Spellreaver Marathelle at Sunfury Hold. Use Archmage Vargoth's Staff to contact the archmage once you have achieved your goal.

If you lose Archmage Vargoth's Staff, speak to Ravandwyr at Area 52 to receive a replacement.


This quest is the 6th step in a quest chain in Netherstorm that begins with Neutral 15 [68] The Archmage's Staff.


While I'm glad to have most of Krasus's Compendium back, it's useless without the heliotrope oculus. You see, Krasus was well aware of the sheer power of the spells recorded in the book and took steps to safeguard them from prying eyes.

Only a knowledgeable mage can use the oculus to unlock the compendium's secrets.

During Kael'thas's attack, one of his lieutenants, Spellreaver Marathelle, looted it and took it to Sunfury Hold northeast of the tower. No doubt she thought it a pretty little bauble.


Have you recovered the oculus?


Excellent, <name>. Now, we have most of what we'll need to attempt to break Kael'thas's magic.

And if the blood elves suffer from the loss of their local commander, so much the better.
