'''The Great Masquerade''' was the alliance quest chain that leads to obtaining the [[Drakefire Amulet]], the key to [[Onyxia's Lair]]. This is one of the most arduous quest chains in the game, involving multiple trips into [[Blackrock Depths]], a major event in [[Stormwind City]], and a raid in [[Upper Blackrock Spire]]. It may require several [[Lower Blackrock Spire]] runs as well, to acquire the key to the raid area.
