Encoded Fragments is the third step in the Rogue class-specific Sunken Temple Quest chain. The final step yields very good rare item for its level.

Objective Edit

Bring 10 Encoded Fragments to Archmage Xylem in Azshara.


Lord Ravenholdt has asked a favor of us both. He wishes to remove the enchantment from this bag.

Unfortunately, some of my books on the subject of dispelling were taken recently, only to be destroyed by savages. The remains of my books are still valuable to me.

If you can bring me enough of the encoded fragments, I can piece them back together. Your best chance is to kill the beasts of Azshara, since they have a tendency to pick up just about anything.


Have you found enough fragments to continue my work?


It looks like you picked up some of the better fragments. Perhaps you aren't worthless after all.


You will receive: 75Silver


Notes Edit

  • The Encoded Fragments formerly only dropped off theForest Ooze creatures in Northeast and Southern Azshara, but have been recently changed to drop off beasts of all kinds.
  • It is best to Pick Pocket the Oozes first, as they have a chance of giving up to two fragments from pickpocketing, and one from the regular slain loot. If your pickpocket attempt gets resisted, you can immediately vanish and try again. The improved stealth should give you a higher chance of success, and you should still keep your combo points as long as you keep the ooze targeted.
  • Forest Oozes share their respawn with Mistwing Ravagers, so make sure to kill them whenever you see them. If you don't, soon the area will be full of Mistwing instead of Oozes.
