For the Alliance version, see Quest:What The Dragons Know (Alliance).

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

Objectives Edit

Speak to Krasus at the top of Wyrmrest Temple, then report your findings to Magister Hathorel at Sunreaver's Sanctuary in Dalaran.

  • Ask Krasus about the hilt's origins

Description Edit

There's no mistaking it - this hilt comes from a powerful, ancient weapon, but which one? I do not recognize these particular markings, but we haven't hit a dead end yet.

Korialstrasz, better known as Krasus, has long been a friend to the quel'dorei and the Kirin Tor. With his vast knowledge and resources, he's certain to know something. Travel to the top of Wyrmrest Temple and seek his counsel, then report to Magister Hathorel inside Sunreaver's Sanctuary in Dalaran.

Rewards Edit

You will receive: 7Gold 40Silver

Completion Edit

We must recover that book from the Silver Covenant. Without that book from Krasus, we stand little chance of solving the mystery of the sword in Icecrown or unlocking its power.

Notes Edit

Gossipgossipicon What do you know of ancient swords?

Krasus says: You're too late, <name>. Another visitor from Dalaran came asking after information about the same prismatic dragon blades.
Krasus says: From your description, I'm certain the book I loaned our visitor could allow you to easily identify the weapon.
Kalecgos flies in from the northeast and switches to his half-elf guise as he walks to Krasus and Alexstrasza.
Krasus says: I'm afraid you'll have to ask the -- Well, perhaps Kalecgos can help.
Krasus says: <name> may have found the remains of a prismatic blade, Kalecgos. Will you offer your help to our visitor?
Kalecgos says: Are you certain you should be helping these mortals in their quest for the sword?
Kalecgos says: These blades, Krasus... They were made long ago, when things were... different.
Krasus says: You believe our allies will not be able to control the power of the swords?
Kalecgos says: Our enemies once turned our strongest weapon against us. What makes you think the prismatic blades will be any different?
Alexstrasza the Life-Binder says: Mortal champions have long used these weapons to combat evil. I see no reason to keep the swords from them in this battle.
Kalecgos says: As you wish, my queen. I will not stand in their way, but I will keep a close watch.
Krasus says: As will we all.
Kalecgos turns and walks away to the northeast before making a thumbs up and disappearing.
Krasus says: Please, mortal, seek out Magister Hathorel in Dalaran. He might be able to negotiate with the Silver Covenant for access to the book..
