It is possible to do this quest without having to fight the murlocs swimming around the Vile Reef, if you are careful. However, since many players will have  , which requires killing the murlocs, they may want to kill them anyway. The can be looted by right clicking a tablet near a blue glowing area on the ocean floor. The tablet is called Gri'lek the Wanderer.
- Long ago, a great shudder of the earth sunk an old troll city beneath the waters of the Savage Coast to the northwest. We call that place the Vile Reef, for murlocs now reside in the ruins of the city, attacking any who draw close.
- There is an old tablet among those ruins that tells the ancient tale of Gri'lek, a hero of troll legends. The tale is sacred to the Darkspear tribe, and although the tablet is too large to move, I want a shard of it to enshrine in our new home in Orgrimmar.
- I await the Tablet Shard, <name>.
- This is good. When I return to Orgrimmar I will place this shard in a sacred place. It will remind us of the might and honor of Gri'lek.
- Thank you, <name>. Your deeds mark a growing friendship with the Darkspear tribe.
