For the Alliance version, see Quest:The Halls Of Reflection (Alliance).

This quest is part of the The Return of Quel'Delar quest chain Return of Quel'Delar quest chain.

Objectives Edit

Bring Quel'Delar to Sword's Rest inside the Halls of Reflection. Return to Myralion Sunblaze at Quel'Delar's rest after you have completed your journey.

  • Bring Quel'Delar to Halls of Reflection
  • Quel'Delar (Provided)

Description Edit

You have re-forged and tempered the sword, yet it sits quietly in its sheath, little different from a mundane blade. You say the sword pulls you, as though it possesses a will?

Dare you bring it where it wishes to go? It is not right that the sword should be this silent and this insistent, yet I fear that if you do not take the sword to its destination, we will never learn why. Bear it with you to the Halls of Reflection, but be on your guard and prepare to tell me all of what you learn there.

Rewards Edit

You will receive: 7Gold 40Silver

Progress Edit

What happened inside the Halls of Reflection?

Completion Edit

How can evil take root in such a sword? I would not have thought it possible if the evidence wasn't here before my eyes. If the greatest of dragonkind's creations could be corrupted and turned against them, why not a mere sword?

I believe Uther is right. You must heed his advice quickly, <name>.

Notes Edit

After accepting the quest, players are debuffed with Quel'Delar's Compulsion: "Quel'Delar pulses with darkness and seems to be pulling you toward the Halls of Reflection in Icecrown Citadel." This debuff does not confer any in-game effects besides pointing players to the next step of the quest.

Upon entering Sword's Rest in the Halls of Reflection and approaching Frostmourne while under Quel'Delar's Compulsion:

Uther the Lightbringer yells: Halt! Do not carry that blade any further!
Quel'Delar leeps to life in the presence of Frostmourne!
Uther the Lightbringer yells: Do you realize what you've done?
Quel'Delar prepares to attack!

Quel'Delar will spawn and attack the party, and must be "killed" in order to obtain the Subdued Quel'Delar. Uther the Lightbringer, who stands next to the pedestal of Frostmourne, instructs the player that they must take the sword to the Sunwell to cleanse it of its evil.

After defeating the sword:

Uther the Lightbringer says: You have forged this blade from saronite, the very blood of an old god. The power of the Lich King calls to this weapon.
Uther the Lightbringer says: Each moment you tarry here, Quel'Delar drinks in the evil of this place.
Uther the Lightbringer says: There is only one way to cleanse the sword. Make haste for the Sunwell and immerse the blade in its waters.
Uther the Lightbringer says: I can resist Frostmourne's call no more...
Uther fades away

Turn around, walk out of the dungeon, and go turn in the quest to pick up the next.

If you find the sword overpowering, you can abandon the quest and pick it up again at the quest giver outside of the 5 man Icc dungeons.
