Objectives Edit

Collect 6 Elementium Shards.

Description Edit

You know, it's our moral obligation to save all of this Elementium from the shale spiders. Those creepy things eat the stuff!

What a waste!

So, what do you say? 90/10 my way?


How much do you think you can carry?


<Goldmine slyly looks at the pile of Elementium shards.>

Hmm, I don't think that stuff's going to sell for much. I better give you your cut right now so you don't feel ripped off.

Rewards Edit

You will receive:

You will also be able to choose one of the following:

Inv helmet 191
[Shard-Keeper Helm]
Inv bracer plate cataclysm b 02
[Bracers of Gleaming Shards]
Inv jewelry necklace 50

  • To progress with Goldmine's quests, proceed further into the Elementium Depths and not back the way the mine cart came!
  • Elementium Shards can drop from the spiders, but can also be found on the cavern floor.
  • Be sure to accept the quest from the Twilight Rune of Earth deeper in the Depths.
