PreviousThe Path to the Citadel


Kill Scourgelord Tyrannus.


We need to make our way up the main path and through the cave to Tyrannus' rise. There, he will be forced to confront us lest we make our way into the citadel proper.

Go now, <class>. My men and I will be there to stand by you when the confrontation with Tyrannus comes.


You will receive: [Emblem of Frost] x2 and 29Gold 60Silver


The Halls of Reflection lie ahead. If what that vile gnome said is to be trusted, Frostmourne should be there, and with it, answers to confronting Arthas.


After defeating Ick, Krick spawns:

Krick yells: Wait! Stop! Don't kill me, please! I'll tell you everything!
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: Why should the Banshee Queen spare your miserable life?
Krick yells: What you seek is in the master's lair, but you must destroy Tyrannus to gain entry. Within the Halls of Reflection you will find Frostmourne. It... it holds the truth.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: Frostmourne? The Lich King is never without his blade! If you are lying to me...
Krick yells: I swear it is true! Please, don't kill me!!
Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Worthless gnat! Death is all that awaits you!
Krick yells: Urg... no!!
Tyrannus strangulates Ick.
Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Do not think that I shall permit you entry into my master's sanctum so easily. Pursue me if you dare.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: A fitting end for a traitor. Come, we must free the slaves and see what is within the Lich King's chamber for ourselves.
Sylvanas then meets up with the large group of freed slaves and Gorkun Ironskull at the base of the path.
Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Your pursuit shall be in vain, adventurers, for the Lich King has placed an army of undead at my command! Behold!
The path to the tunnel leading to Tyrannus's area fills with ymirjar and skeletons.
Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Persistent whelps! You will not reach the entrance of my lord's lair! Soldiers, destroy them!

Upon reaching the mouth of the tunnel:

Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Rimefang, trap them within the tunnel! BURY THEM ALIVE!
Rocks and blocks of ice start falling from the ceiling. The cave acts as a gauntlet. Rockfalls are denoted by Blizzard-like marks on the ground a few seconds before it falls.

Upon reaching the other end of the tunnel:

Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Alas, brave, brave adventurers, your meddling has reached its end. Do you hear the clatter of bone and steel coming up the tunnel behind you? That is the sound of your impending demise.
Gorkun Ironskull yells: Heroes! We will hold off the undead as long as we can, even to our dying breath. Deal with the Scourgelord!
Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Such an amusing gesture from the rabble. When I have finished with you, my master's blade will feast upon your souls. Die.

After defeating Tyrannus:

Gorkun Ironskull yells: Brave champions, we owe you our lives, our freedom.... Though it be a tiny gesture in the face of this enormous debt, I pledge that from this day forth, all will know of your deeds, and the blazing path of light you cut through the shadow of this dark citadel.
Gorkun Ironskull yells: This day will stand as a testament not only to your valor, but to the fact that no foe, not even the Lich King himself, can stand when Alliance and Horde set aside their differences and---
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: Take cover behind me! Quickly!
Sylvanas teleports the party to her location, just inside the mouth of the tunnel, as Sindragosa casts a Frost Bomb on the open area, killing all freed slaves except the few mages who had time to Ice Block themselves, including Gorkun Ironskull.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: I thought he'd never shut up. Alas, Sindragosa silenced that long-winded fool. To the Halls of Reflection, champions! Our objective is near... I can sense it..
Sylvanas then runs over to the entrance to the Halls of Reflection, concluding this quest and offering Frostmourne.

Enter The Forge of Souls from the side of Icecrown Citadel and find Lady Sylvanas Windrunner.


<class>! Come close quickly, I must have a word!

My queen, the Lady Sylvanas Windrunner, has uncovered a hole in the defenses of Icecrown Citadel into a place she referred to as "The Forge of Souls." She sent word before she left for me to find fierce fighters to send her way. I think you'll do.

Go to her within the entrance to the forge, <class>.


Good. <name>, I know of you. You'll be perfect for these tasks.

We've been afforded a rare chance to delve into Icecrown Citadel, but we must move quickly if we're to avoid Arthas' notice.


Dark Ranger Vorel patrols around Dalaran, stopping in Sunreaver's Sanctuary, the Magus Commerce Exchange and Runeweaver Square.
