I am interested in studying Azeroth's past and I'm wondering if you'd be willing to help?
There is a nearby place of historical significance within the swamp that I would like for you to venture to. The Pool of Tears lies to the southeast. It is said that upon its shores and within its depths are buried artifacts of the Atal'ai troll civilization.
But beware, it is guarded by Somnus, an ancient green dragon, and his dragonkin, as well as carnivorous fish in the pool itself!
I look forward to you gathering enough of the Atal'ai artifacts so that I might begin to study them. I'm eager to discover what happened to their once-great civilization.
There are plenty in the water outside the temple. No need to go inside.
