'''The Tempest Key''' is the key to enter [[Eye (Tempest Keep)|the Eye]] of [[Tempest Keep]], the inner sanctum of [[Kael'thas Sunstrider]].
{{Loot|Common|The Tempest Key}} allows players to enter [[The Eye]] - the center palace of [[Tempest Keep]] - and defeat [[Kael'thas Sunstrider]]. This fight is required for several attunement quests. The Tempest Key is not used like an actual key, but rather, like the [[Drakefire Amulet]], it is a passive item that attunes you to the instance.
The key is no longer needed to enter [[Eye (Tempest Keep)|the Eye]].[]
== Obtaining the Tempest Key ==
As of Patch 2.3, those completing this quest and {{questlong|Neutral|70R|The Cudgel of Kar'desh}} at level 70 are granted the right to use the title [[Champion of the Naaru]].
The Tempest Key is given after a long quest chain that begins after completing [[The Hand of Gul'dan quest chain]] (starts with {{questlong|Neutral|70|The Hand of Gul'Dan}}) for {{item|The Cipher of Damnation}} in Shadowmoon Valley. Upon completing the Cipher quest, you will receive (immediately) a letter in the mail from [[Khadgar]], asking you to travel to [[Shattrath City]] to speak to him.
*{{questlong|Neutral|70|The Tempest Key}}: Khadgar instructs you to speak to [[A'dal]], who sends you on a series of trials.
**{{questlong|Neutral|70|Trial of the Naaru: Mercy}}: A'dal sends you to [[the Shattered Halls]] of [[Hellfire Citadel]] to retrieve the {{loot|Common|Unused Axe of the Executioner}}. You must kill all three of the bosses in the Halls. This MUST be done on [[Heroic]] difficulty.
The Tempest Key is obtained after completing {{questlong|neutral|70|Trial of the Naaru: Magtheridon}}. See the [[Tempest Key Guide]] for the full details.
**{{questlong|Neutral|70|Trial of the Naaru: Strength}}: This requires two instance runs, both on Heroic: You must kill [[Warlord Kalithresh]] in [[the Steamvault]] of [[Coilfang Reservoir]] and retrieve {{loot|Common|Kalithresh's Trident}}, then travel to the [[Shadow Labyrinth]] in [[Auchindoun]], destroy [[Murmur]], and take {{loot|Common|Murmur's Essence}}.
==External links==
**{{questlong|Neutral|70|Trial of the Naaru: Tenacity}}: Enter [[the Arcatraz]] - a satellite of [[Tempest Keep]] - and rescue [[Millhouse Manastorm]]. This must be done on Heroic difficulty.
**{{questlong|Neutral|70|Trial of the Naaru: Magtheridon}}: Finally, you must enter [[Magtheridon's Lair]] and slay [[Magtheridon]], a 25-man raid boss.
Upon completing all four quests, A'dal will grant you the Tempest Key (along with {{loot|Epic|Phoenix-fire Band}}) and you will be allowed to enter [[The Eye]], Kael'thas' sanctum, for the final confrontation with the "Sun King".
