This quest may only be completed on Heroic difficulty.
King Ymiron of Utgarde Pinnacle is the favored vrykul of the Lich King. That alone is reason enough to put an end to him.
But should he blow the horns and call for all of the leaders of the ymirjar and mjordin alike, the vrykul will become a force more powerful than any other within the Scourge!
It is up to you, <name>, to see to it that this does not come to pass. Bring me the locket from around his neck so that I will know that Ymiron no longer poses a threat.
Ymiron must not be allowed to organize the vrykul nation. Should he return triumphantly to Icecrown, it is very likely that all will be lost.
<The archmage somberly nods as you hand him the rather large piece of jewelry.>
What's done is done. Such a noble race these vrykul. It is unfortunate that the Lich King has sunk his deathly hooks into them.
