Go to Death's Stand and ride Dusk to the location of Tanathal's Phylactery. Obtain it and bring it back to Thassarian inside the Wailing Ziggurat.


No time for small talk, <name>. I was on what was to be a suicide mission to take this ziggurat. I've accomplished my duty as a soldier, now is the time to get some answers.

This lich has knowledge I seek, yet I cannot inflict pain to his physical body to obtain that knowledge.

The lich stored his soul in a phylactery, and while it remains hidden, I won't be able to pry the information from him.

Return to the camp and take my horse, Dusk, she will lead you to the phylactery. Bring it to me.


You're back, <name>. Did you get the phylactery?


Just in time, <name>. Pinning down a lich is not as easy as it looks.


Dusk will take you to the Frozen Phylactery. Loot it to spawn several Drowned Guardians and a Phylactery Guardian, the latter of whom drops Inv misc urn 01 [Tanathal's Phylactery]. It is in the water at the bottom, right in front of where Dusk takes you.
